PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) Buffalo Bills running back Karlos Williams has been cleared for practice after passing his physical.

Williams was overweight when reporting to training camp and spent the past two weeks working out individually while on the team's active/non-football injury list.

Williams' weight issues date to June when he reported for the team's mandatory minicamps. He blamed the weight gain on snacking with his pregnant fiancee so she didn't have to eat alone.

The second-year player's troubles mounted last month, when the NFL suspended Williams for the first four games of the regular season for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Williams made a splash as a rookie backing up starter LeSean McCoy last season. He had 517 yards rushing and scored nine touchdowns, including two receiving.
