Karlos Williams Sr. called out over weight

Karlos Williams put on some sympathy weight this offseason.

"When she eat, I eat."

Karlos Williams Sr. was kept off the field on Tuesday at the Buffalo Bills' mandatory minicamp after Rex Ryan deemed the running back was overweight. Williams Sr. has a good excuse though. His fiancée was pregnant during the offseason and she was his main focus. Via NewYorkUpstate.com:

"I like to eat and then her being pregnant gave me an excuse to eat anything and every," Williams said. "She would wake up at one or two o'clock and say, 'I want a snack.' Well I'm not going to sit here and watch you eat and make you feel bad."

Sympathy weight is common when your significant other is expecting, but Rex Ryan wasn't pleased with Williams.

"To say he's overweight for a back, yeah without question he is," Ryan said. "You guys can see him as well as I do. He's clearly overweight.

The Buffalo Bills Twitter account posted a picture of Williams and he did look larger than what Bills fans saw last season.


"Obviously you wish that he was in much better shape," Ryan added. "There's no question about it. In the future, I'm sure he's got to realize what he did this offseason is far from what you want. He's a young guy. Hopefully he learns from it."

On Tuesday, Williams Sr. participated in individual drills before doing conditioning drills for the remainder of the minicamp. When he was asked about his injury status, the running back gave a humorous response:


The goal for Williams Sr. now is to come to training camp in shape. Williams Sr. does not see this being a tall task.

"It's my responsibility to make sure I come back for training camp, in shape and I'm ready to roll," Williams said. "It's not going to be a problem."
