On Sunday, the six year veteran took head coach Chip Kelly to task for how much energy he and his teammates had spent in the team's practice sessions. "It's just tough, man," opined Williams, "A lot of guys had no legs. A lot of guys were in a dogfight before the game even started. We have to take care of our guys during the week to make sure we're fresh come Sundays."
Williams did himself no further favors by propping himself on a pedestal saying, "I'm saying [practicing every day] impacted a lot of people...a lot of people. But, I'm just the only one man enough to get up here and say anything about it, talk to y'all as a man and discuss an issue that, obviously, in my opinion, is an issue in our starts."
Two days later, Williams changed his tune. "I spoke to the team today. I addressed each man in there. Told them that I was sorry for what I said and put them in a difficult situation. I told them it won't happen again."
Williams also vowed an incident like this won't happen again going forward saying, "I told [my teammates] I won't talk negatively about the team or where we're going. We are 3-0. That's something to be proud of. I am happy that we are 3-0 because things could have gone otherwise."
During Monday's press conference with the media, Coach Kelly mentioned he talked in private with Williams and stated publicly that he has "no issues" with his cornerback.
