Damien Williams, RB (CHI)

Not expected to play

Coach Matt Nagy said Friday that he doesn't expect Williams (COVID-19) to play in Sunday's game against Green Bay, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Williams was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday after taking 18 touches for 84 yards and a touchdown in a Week 5 win over the Raiders. Khalil Herbert also got 18 touches (all carries) in the contest, and he now figures to serve as the lead back in the absence of Williams and David Montgomery (IR/knee). With Herbert and Ryan Nall being the only running backs on Chicago's active roster as of Friday, the team could promote Artavis Pierce from the practice squad before Sunday.
