Tramon Williams’ shoulder probably will have lingering weakness and pain for the rest of the season, but after a week off because of the bye it should no longer inhibit the Packers cornerback from playing press coverage.

Williams’ shoulder injury from the regular-season opener included not only a bad bruise but also substantial nerve damage. Nerves often can take several months or more to heal completely, so the injury could bother Williams for the rest of the season.
