Broncos WR Williams ruptures Achilles

Kyle Williams, who was competing for a spot as a returner and receiver, was injured fielding a punt this morning, and later said on Instagram that he ruptured his Achilles and is out for the season.



Unfortunately, today I suffered a rupture to my Achilles and will consequently be missing this season. It's hard for me at this point to make sense of all of this but at the end of the day I understand and trust God's plan for me. My determination to get back and my work ethic will not diminish and I will eventually get back to full strength. I appreciate all those who have reached out and all of those who are praying. You all mean more to me than u know. Thank you. ???
