Williams (shoulder) has been placed on injured reserve, the Chiefs' official site reports.

An injury settlement may be coming, as Williams was merely competing for one of the final roster spots before hurting his shoulder in Thursday's preseason finale.

Williams was forced out of Thursday's preseason finale with a shoulder injury.

While Williams is off the fantasy radar in most cases, if his shoulder issue is anything other than minor, it will hamper his chances of making any sort of impact in the Chiefs' offense (which will be without wideout Dwayne Bowe in Week 1) out of the gate.

Williams (hamstring) worked as the No. 3 wide receiver with the first-team offense in Thursday's preseason opener against the Bengals, Herbie Teope of Chiefs Spin reports.

Junior Hemingway and A.J. Jenkins were both inactive for Thursday's game, leaving Williams to work as the No. 3 by default. There isn't much of a ceiling to reach in this offense, but the No. 3 spot on the depth chart is up for grabs, with at least three players seemingly in the mix.

Chiefs WR Kyle Williams (knee) is healthy entering training camp.

Williams tore his ACL for the second time in as many years in November and underwent surgery in December. He appeared in one game for the Chiefs after being claimed off waivers from the 49ers. ESPN Chiefs reporter Adam Teicher expects Williams to get a chance to win the slot receiver job vacated by Dexter McCluster, but he'll be competing with Junior Hemingway and rookies Weston Dressler and DeAnthony Thomas.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid said he expects WR Kyle Williams (knee) to be ready for training camp.

Williams is rehabbing from his second ACL surgery in the last two years, so his camp status remains questionable despite Reid's comments. Even when healthy, Williams is a long shot to make Kansas City's roster. Williams appeared in just one game with the Chiefs last season after being claimed off waivers and was re-signed on a one-year, $730,000 contract.

Chiefs re-signed WR Kyle Williams.

The Chiefs claimed Williams off waivers from the 49ers in November last year, and he tore his left ACL a week later. Williams has now torn his left ACL twice in his NFL career. He'll be a long shot for Kansas City's 53-man roster.

Chiefs claimed WR Kyle Williams off waivers from the 49ers.

Williams was waived on Tuesday after losing his starting job to Mario Manningham. He caught just 12 passes for 113 yards in nine games (five starts) with the 49ers and will be reunited with QB Alex Smith. Williams will be no higher than the No. 4 receiver in Kansas City and remains off the fantasy radar.

49ers waived WR Kyle Williams.

Williams "started" five of the 49ers' first nine games at receiver, but caught just 12 passes for 113 yards. He was also dead last in the league in punt-return average. Williams was a fringe NFL talent even before tearing his ACL last Thanksgiving, so it was extremely surprising how much time he got with San Francisco's offense. He's unlikely to draw much interest on waivers. The 49ers are moving forward with Mario Manningham opposite Anquan Boldin.

Kyle Williams was added to the Week 10 injury report with a knee injury.

Williams practiced in full Friday and is officially listed as probable, so it's not a major concern. With Mario Manningham set to return this week, Williams is going to lose considerable snaps opposite Anquan Boldin in two-wide sets.
