D. J. Williams TE NE 4 Months
Jaguars waived TE D.J. Williams and signed WR Cary Taylor off the Cardinals' practice squad.
Although Marcedes Lewis (calf) has barely played, Williams has recorded no catches on the season. The ex-Packer is allegedly a pass-catching tight end. Taylor takes suspended Justin Blackmon's roster spot, sliding in as the No. 4 wideout.

ESPN.com doesn't project Packers TE D.J. Williams to make the final roster.
Williams, a 2011 fifth-round pick, has reportedly been far too inconsistent. He practices well, but never carries it over to the games. Williams has just three catches for 25 yards through two preseason games, and has been destroyed as a run blocker. He has just nine career catches in 26 games.

ESPN Boston mentions Packers TE D.J. Williams and Eagles TE Clay Harbor as "names that come to mind" if the Patriots want to try and trade for a tight end.
Beat writer Field Yates is just tossing a couple of names in the air. He wasn't suggesting the Patriots were actually targeting Williams or Harbor, but either one could make some sense. Harbor has fallen out of favor in Philadelphia, and Williams has caught just nine passes in 26 career games as he's been hard-pressed to find the field. Green Bay may be more inclined to keep Williams, especially with Jermichael Finley's contract wrapping up after 2013. Both Williams and Harbor are athletic catch-first tight ends.

ESPN Milwaukee wonders if TE D.J. Williams fits into the Packers' plans.
Williams, a 2011 fifth-round pick, caught just seven passes for 57 yards in his sophomore season and was a healthy inactive down the stretch. He was deemed a solid pass-catching tight end coming out of Arkansas, but height questions -- 6-foot-2 -- have been a talking point. Williams, as it sits right now, is fourth on the depth chart.

Packers TE D.J. Williams (hamstring) was limited in practice on Friday and is listed as questionable for Week 7.
Williams was looking at an increased role on Sunday with Jermichael Finely's (shoulder) status in doubt. The second-year tight end is staring at a game-time decision. If both he and Finley are forced to miss, the Packers wouldn't have a tight end worth considering in fantasy.

Packers TE D.J. Williams was held out of Thursday's practice with a hamstring injury.
It's a new injury for Williams, who was set for an increased role with Jermichael Finley's (shoulder) status in doubt this week. It's beginning to look like the Packers won't have a tight end worth considering in fantasy leagues for Sunday's game versus the Texans.
