LeSean McCoy is out for Sunday's game, but the Giants are very aware of Karlos Williams.

LeSean McCoy may be out on Sunday, but the Giants know that they face the tough task of stopping Karlos Williams on Sunday.

The NY Giants were very aware of what LeSean McCoy could do on the field based upon his time on the field with the Eagles. So while New York may be happy that they won't be facing their former foe, the Giants know they'll have their hands full on Sunday against Buffalo Bills running back Karlos Williams.

Entering Sunday's game, Williams leads the league in YPC average at 7.8 yards. He's rushed for 186 yards and three touchdowns in just 24 carries and on Sunday, Williams could really breakout in his first career start. That said, you cannot say that the Giants are taking Williams lightly. In fact, they're very aware of what the bruising back can do on the field.

Several Giants recently spoke to Steve Serby of the New York Post, and the rookie running back out of Florida State received plenty of praise from G-Men.

Defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins believes Williams has been a steal for the Bills.

“For a fifth-rounder, to be running the way he has so far this season, I think they got a steal in the draft with him,” Jenkins said.

Later, Jenkins was asked who Williams reminded him of in the NFL. His answer?

“Maybe … Frank Gore-type back maybe,” Jenkins said. “I’m talking about the power he runs with.

Jenkins wasn't the only player to sing Williams' praises. Defensive tackle Jay Bromley also complimented the back saying, “He’s a dynamic running back. He’s really a downhill, hit-the-hole fast kind of guy.”

Landon Collins also knows what Williams is capable of on the field. The safety said, “He definitely brings a wallop when he runs downhill,” Collins said. “He’s got some nifty feet, so he’s got some quick movements. … You just gotta be on your P’s and Q’s ’cause he can shake you or he can try to put his shoulder down on you, do you want to be in a good leverage and have good shoulder lean and waist bend, so when you make the tackle, you don’t get ran over.”

Don't be surprised if Williams' carries have doubled following the game against the Giants. Rex Ryan would love nothing more than to use a ground-and-pound approach to defeat New York on Sunday.
