Greedy Williams making progress, declares return from shoulder injury “official”

Greedy Williams sees the light at the end of the tunnel.

The second-year cornerback grew frustrated and emotional when a nerve injury in his right shoulder didn’t heal fast enough and cost him the entire 2020 season. But he’s seen progress lately, including more feeling in and strengthening of the shoulder muscle, and pronounced himself back Thursday.

“#ReturnOfGreedy is official!” Williams tweeted.

He hasn’t been officially cleared, but a team spokesman said he’s definitely making progress.

Williams was injured Aug. 24 in training camp making a hit in a drill. The Browns initially called the injury “day-to-day,” then placed him on injured reserve Oct. 12 when he was still unavailable. Williams disclosed Dec. 14 that he had suffered damage to the axillary nerve.

He told Cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot this week that the nerves have finally allowed the muscle to fire.

General manager Andrew Berry said after the season he expected Williams to be fully recovered for the 2021 season and said Wednesday he’s progressing in the rehab.

Williams was a second-round pick in 2019. He missed four games early in his rookie season with a strained hamstring and finished the year with two passes defensed and two tackles for loss in 12 starts.
