Arizona Cardinals running back Ryan Williams is looking to provide a spark at the position. On Friday night against the Raiders, Williams carried the ball five times for 25 yards, averaging 5 yards per carry. Williams even found his way to the end zone on one such occasion in limited action.
Analysis: This exhibition match-up marked Williams' return to action since tearing his patella tendon. The former Virginia Tech running back has not really had a chance to get his career off the ground, but this season could be his chance to steal the show. The Cardinals are desperate for more overall production on the offensive side of the football and Williams could provide that for them. Beanie Wells is set to return for the Cards last preseason game, and that's when the competition at running back will really begin to take shape. Williams could have some real sleeper value if he emerges the victor.
