CLEVELAND — Cleveland Browns cornerback Greedy Williams exited the preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers early in the third quarter at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida Friday night.
While reaching in to make a tackle on a wide receiver in open space, Williams’ arm buckled at an angle and after he sat on the field for a moment and gained the attention of the Browns’ sideline, a trainer assisted him to the bench. When Williams walked off the field, he did not move his right arm.
The Browns dealt the Nos. 49 and 144 selections to the Indianapolis Colts in order to take former Louisiana State University cornerback Greedy Williams with the No. 46 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Over 24 career games in just two years at LSU, Williams registered 71 total tackles, including 49 solo stops and 22 assists, with 1.5 tackles behind the line of scrimmage, as well as eight interceptions and 19 passes defended.
Williams burst onto the scene as a freshman in 2017 when he collected six interceptions and 10 passes defended along with 26 solo stops, 12 assists and 38 total tackles.
Those six interceptions ranked first in the Southeastern Conference and fourth in the NCAA.
