Williams rushed 14 times for 104 yards and caught four of five targets for 32 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 23-22 win over the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

Williams returned to the lineup after missing Week 5 with a concussion, and although Aaron Jones started as usual at tailback, Williams made his presence felt once offered the opportunity. Specifically, after Jones fumbled and dropped a would-be touchdown on consecutive drives, Williams was put in the game and quickly responded with a five-yard touchdown. He then ripped off a career-long, 45-yard rush on Green Bay's next series, ultimately helping him top 100 yards for the second time in his career. In comparison, Jones finished with 11 carries for 47 yards and four catches on seven targets for 13 more. Given that discrepancy, Williams could very well earn himself additional touches in Week 7 versus the Raiders, but considering Jones still ranks second league-wide with eight touchdowns and is usually rather reliable, Williams' extra work should still come in a second-string capacity.

Williams (concussion) was a full practice participant Thursday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

On the heels of completing the concussion protocol, Williams' reps weren't restricted, allowing him to rejoin Aaron Jones. The backfield duo both got regular snaps during the first three games of the campaign, with Williams getting 33 touches to Jones' 52 during that span.

Williams cleared the concussion protocol and took part in Thursday's practice, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Two weeks removed from picking up the concussion, Williams has completed every step in the protocol for head injuries, including an evaluation by an independent neurologist. During Williams' one game on the pine, fellow running back Aaron Jones went off against the Cowboys in Week 5, accruing 26 touches for 182 yards from scrimmage and four rushing TDs. Considering the breakdown of snaps between Jones and Williams in the first four games of the season, a number of those touches should return to Williams on Monday against the Lions.

The Packers list Williams (concussion) as out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

After exiting the Packers' Week 4 loss to the Eagles on Thursday following a hit to the head, Williams was unable to partake in practice at any point this week. He'll thus miss his first game of the season while he remains embedded in the concussion protocol, leaving rookie sixth-round pick Dexter Williams and fullback Danny Vitale as the lone depth options on the roster available behind lead back Aaron Jones.

Williams (concussion) isn't practicing Friday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Williams appears headed for a Week 5 absence, leaving Dexter Williams as the No. 2 running back behind Aaron Jones for Sunday's game in Dallas. Another update will be available once the Packers release their final injury report later Friday.

Williams (concussion) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear if Williams was able to perform any work on the side under the supervision of trainers, but his inability to practice in even a limited fashion for the second straight day doesn't bode well for his chances of suiting up Sunday in Dallas. If Williams ends up being sidelined, Dexter Williams would likely dress for the first time this season as the top understudy to starting running back Aaron Jones.

Williams (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Almost a week removed from the hit to the head he took from Eagles defensive lineman Derek Barnett, Williams doesn't appear to be in a good spot in his journey through the concussion protocol. Williams also suffered a neck injury on the play in question, so there's no telling when he'll gain clearance from both the team's medical staff in addition to an independent neurologist. With Williams' status for Week 5 in Dallas up in the air, the Packers' backfield boasts Aaron Jones, rookie Dexter Williams and fullback Danny Vitale.

A Packers spokesperson said Monday that Williams, who suffered an apparent head/neck injury in the Week 4 loss to the Eagles, has entered the NFL's concussion protocol, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Williams was present at the Packers' team facility Monday but wasn't able to meet with the media and provide an update on his condition since he remains in the protocol. Considering the running back was carted off the field and later hospitalized after taking a big blow to the head, he may have a tough time passing all five phases of the protocol before Sunday's game in Dallas arrives. If that's the case, rookie Dexter Williams would be the lone depth option at running back available behind starter Aaron Jones.

Williams (head/neck) didn't practice Monday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Williams, who was carted off the field during this past Thursday's home loss to the Eagles, subsequently spent the night at a local hospital, but was discharged Friday morning. If Williams is unable to suit up this Sunday against the Cowboys -- which seems likely -- Dexter Williams is a candidate to be active as Aaron Jones' backup Week 5.

Coach Matt LaFleur said Williams (head/neck) was "doing well" Friday, when the running back was discharged from a Green Bay-area hospital, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Williams was in the throes of getting tackled on the Packers' first possession Thursday when Eagles defensive lineman Derek Barnett went shoulder first into the RB, who remained motionless on the field for a time before getting stretchered off. Promptly ruled out with head and neck injuries, Williams stayed the night at the hospital, seemingly as a precautionary measure. The Packers haven't revealed whether or not he suffered a concussion, but it wouldn't surprise if he ultimately heads to the protocol for head injuries.
