Williams is currently seeking a second opinion on an ankle injury that has sidelined the nickelback, Rapoport reported. The team offered Williams the opportunity to have a full workload in last week's preseason game against the Green Bay Packers, but the third-year player balked, citing he was not ready to take the field. The Browns saw his behavior as detrimental to the team and subsequently issued the two-week suspension, per Rapoport.
As Rapoport notes, Williams has been at odds with the team for some time. Jamar Taylor is currently starting nickel cornerback.
UPDATE: Rapoport reported Wednesday afternoon Williams was informed by a doctor -- following a second opinion -- that he needs surgery to remove bone spurs.
