NFL Rumors: Tramon Williams’ Career Could be in Jeopardy

Green Bay Packers cornerback, Tramon Williams suffered a shoulder injury in last year’s season opener. The 6th year DB said in a recent interview that test conducted early June showed slow progression and recovery of strength in his right shoulder. Williams says his shoulder is at about 50%, though it is an improvement from where he was much of last season. However, he’s been resting since mid-January and it’s still not healed, which is concerning. His future is cloudy, as there’s potential nerve damage in his shoulder. “You don’t want to mess with nerve damage, I’ll just say that,” Williams said.

“Physically, the condition my shoulder was in, my whole body was out of sync. I wasn’t really moving like I usually do. If you watch film closely, when I’m running, I’m kind of carrying my shoulder with me. I’m carrying my shoulder with me and I’ve got to watch what I do,” Williams expressed.

With potential nerve damage, of course, the first thing that comes to mind is the Peyton Manning neck injury. Waiting for a nerve to regenerate is a tedious process, and involving yourself in a physical activity such as the beast – football is dangerous. Tramon understands the risk, but hopes the rehabilitation and rest helps him regain his strength. As Williams said, nerve damage is not something you want to mess with.

Tramon is focusing on his health first so he can get back to his old form on the football field. Being physical is key in Tramon’s playing style. The Green Bay Packers are hopeful that Tramon will be able to fully recover, as he is an important piece to their secondary.

    Tramon Williams was a mediore DB last year…if he does not show dramatic improvemnt during taiing camp, he should be released…We cannot afford another player o theroster who, because of injury, pay at a subpar level…

      well duh he was mediocore last year he was injured all year and when he is healthy he is a top 5 cb in the nfl obviously he was a huge part in the sb run in 2010

      • Big T

        He was an average player at best…. his supporting cast was phenominal, making him look better than average. Last year you saw the true Williams, average at best, maybe a little below average. He is damaged goods, must release him now…………..

          This article is beyond overly dramatic. Even if his shoulder takes another year to heal completely he will play at a much higher level than he did last year. He basically had to adjust his style of play in season and he was in pain. Now he should be relatively pain free and hes got nearly a full season under his belt in playing off man and zone coverage. If he has to play that way again this year he should be more comfortable with that style of play now.
