Williams made several catches deep down the field where he was able to create separation vertically.
Chiefs receivers coach David Culley spoke of Williams after practice.
“We knew when he came here that he was very good on the inside,” Culley said. “He knew how to run the slot. He’s a very good route runner in there [and] he knows how to uncover—he’s got a good feel for it.
“Now, since the operation, he has started to get back to where he was physically—where he wasn’t earlier in the camp. You can kind of tell he’s starting to loosen up a little bit and he’s starting to make some plays now.”
Anyone who has had the opportunity to come out to training camp has been able to see and hear running backs coach Eric Bieniemy work with his group.
He’s not a hard person to find as he’s always audible from anywhere around the two fields used during training camp.
Bieniemy spoke with the media after practice and talked about the opportunity to work with coach Andy Reid, whom he played for during his career with the Philadelphia Eagles.
“I’ve learned more football over the past year from coach Reid and coach (Doug) Pederson—from just sitting in meetings, absorbing information and taking notes than I have in all my years of coaching,” Bieniemy said.
Getting on the field for some extra work before practice began Wednesday morning, rookie De’Anthony Thomas spent some 1-on-1 time with Bieniemy.
Bieniemy spoke about Thomas after practice on Wednesday.
“He wants to be great at everything he does,” Bieniemy said. “He doesn’t shy away from anything.”
The Chiefs final practice of training camp will begin at 8:15 a.m. on Thursday morning.
