With Karlos Williams coming into minicamp overweight he’s limited to individual position work and then he heads over to work with the strength and conditioning staff for the remainder of practice. That was the plan on Tuesday and it’ll repeat itself on Wednesday and Thursday. Head coach Rex Ryan says they’ve already got a plan in place to get the second-year running back closer to his actual listed playing weight of 230 pounds.
At the same time dropping that much weight in what will amount to about six and a half weeks isn’t healthy, so the club has to take a more methodical approach according to Ryan.
“We’re not going to put a ridiculous weight number on him to get him back,” Ryan said. “But what you don’t want to do where he all of a sudden drops 20 pounds and he comes out here and gets hurt the first day of training camp. That’s what we’re trying to avoid. So we’ve got to get him to do the right things now. Obviously he’s not anywhere close to where he needs to be to play at a high level. So we’ve got to get some weight off him and he understands that.”
Williams said he plans to continue working with the strength and conditioning staff for another two to three weeks after minicamp closes on Thursday to get his weight more in line with where it needs to be.
