He’s a green rookie in his first NFL season, but not much has slowed Bills rookie RB Karlos Williams so far. He’s leading the Bills in rushing yards and rushing touchdowns with LeSean McCoy slowed by a persistent hamstring injury. Even Williams himself admits he didn’t think he’d enjoy this kind of success this soon.
“Not off the bat. I came in to learn from the guys we had in here, from Shady, from Fred, from Bryce, from Boobie—we had Felton,” Williams said. “You come in here to learn as much as you can, as much as possible and contribute on special teams. I did a little bit of that, but now I see that I’m contributing more on offense than anywhere else. I’m very excited about it. I’m happy about that success, but it doesn’t stop there. After the game, I have to get right back to work. Success doesn’t stop, it doesn’t happen overnight. You have to continue to get better each and every week and that’s what I’m here to do.”
Williams is also young at his position. A five-star safety out of high school, Williams did play some running back in high school, but had all of a year and a half of work at running back at Florida State before he joined the Bills.
