Browns cornerback Greedy Williams tweets his return 'is official'
Browns cornerback Greedy Williams shared a positive development Thursday about his comeback from axillary nerve damage in a shoulder.
“#ReturnOfGreedy is official!,” Williams wrote on Twitter.
Asked about the tweet, a Browns spokesman said the team is encouraged because Williams is definitely making progress.
In another tweet, which has been deleted, Williams, shared two photographs of his chest and shoulders, one dated Jan. 26 and the other Feb. 10.
“God performing miracles during this process!! I’m now 50% after 6months upon recovering! #ReturnOfGreedy,” Williams wrote in the tweet that has since been removed.
A 2019 second-round draft pick from Louisiana State University, Williams didn't play last season after suffering the shoulder injury during a training camp practice.
On Jan. 20, Browns General Manager Andrew Berry expressed optimism about the comebacks of Williams and safety Grant Delpit, a 2020 second-round pick from LSU who missed all of his rookie season with a ruptured Achilles tendon suffered Aug. 24, the same day Williams was hurt.
“I'm very optimistic and very bullish on their physical recovery and then ultimately when they do get back of being able to play at a high level for us,” Berry said then. “... Those guys have done a phenomenal job with their rehab and certainly we look forward to having them in 2021.”
On Wednesday, Berry said the Browns players returning from injuries “are all progressing really well.”
As a rookie, Williams missed four games with a hamstring injury and finished the season with 47 tackles and two passes defensed in 12 games, all starts.
Williams, 23, obviously still has work to do in his rehabilitation, but there are positive signs.
