On Tuesday, the league suspended Williams for two games for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. Even though his suspension was revoked, the San Francisco 49ers expect the cornerback to miss the next few games because of a high ankle injury that had already sidelined him.
Williams hasn't played since Nov. 5 when he was injured against the Green Bay Packers.
The 29-year-old also did not play in Weeks 5, 6 and 7 because of a sprained ACL. Prior to the 2020 season, Williams hadn't missed more than three games in any of his five NFL seasons.
