Chiefs running back and former Sooner Damien Williams won’t play football this season. He’s opting out of the season because of coronavirus concerns.
Williams led the Chiefs in rushing last season despite missing six regular seasons games with injuries. He rushed for 104 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs’ Super Bowl win over the 49ers.
Kansas City general manager Brett Veach said in a statement: “As an organization, we certainly understand and respect Damien’s choice, knowing it was made in the best interest of his family. He means a lot to our football team as a player and a person, and we’re going to miss having him around this season.”
