Kansas City chiefs began to overtake Damian Williams, announcing that the team’s right defender, Laurent DuVernay-Tardif, became the first player to decide amid an epidemic of league coronavirus virus.
Chief General Manager Brett Watt was informed by Williams that he was about to sit out.
“Damian Williams reported his decision to drop out of the 2020 season,” Veach said in a statement. As an organization, we certainly understand and respect Damian’s choice, knowing that it was created in the best interests of his family. He means a lot to our football team as a player and a person and we are going to miss him this season. ‘

In 2019, Williams ran for 498 rushing yards and five touchdowns, and had 30 receptions for 213 receiving yards. He was limited to only 11 games due to injuries, but played a key role for the majors during his playoff run, which led to the Super Bowl title.

In an AFC divisional round win over the Houston Texans, Williams piled up three touchdowns, and a week later against the Tennessee Titans he scored another with five receptions for 44 yards.
In the Super Bowl against the San Francisco 49ers, Williams sealed the game later in the fourth quarter, including 104 rushing yards, a 38-yard score with two touchdowns on 17 carries.
Williams’ presence will certainly be missed, but the majors drafted LSU to withdraw Clyde Edwards-Heilier, who will now step into a starting role with the team and should immediately produce as a painted back.
