Broncos Handed Javonte Williams Injury Boost

We finally have a vague timeline on the return from injury of Denver Broncos running back Javonte Williams. 

Denver was unsure when Javonte Williams would return as recently as March. Head coach Sean Payton now says he could be ready in time for training camp.

Javonte Williams rushed for 903 yards and four touchdowns on 203 carries as a rookie in 2021. His second year was more challenging in a struggling offense before it was cut short by injury.

If Williams can have a proper preseason, Denver has a chance to improve on last year’s 5-12 record.

“Our current starter (Williams) is doing extremely well,” Payton said. 

“I would tell you that we expect him to be ready for the start of training camp and that’s good news. His rehab is going well. I don’t want to speak for him or (vice president of player health and performance) Beau (Lowery) or anyone else, but we get the daily reports. We’re pretty tight-lipped relative to information going out, but I’ve read a lot and I think his rehab is going well.”

“I think there’s a good chance that — if a player is not ready at the start of training camp, he goes to PUP,” Payton said. “We’re hopeful that he is someone that might not have to go to PUP. So that’s good news and in the meantime, the rest of these guys we’re looking at closely. I’m getting to know them.”

The rest of his RB room comprises of Tyler Badie, Damarea Crockett, Tony Jones and Samaje Perine. However, Payton called Williams ‘our current starter’ despite the fact he’s injured for a reason. If he can get fit and playing like his rookie year, Denver will have a real weapon.
