The 2011 season was exhausting both mentally and physically for Packers cornerback Tramon Williams.
The sixth-year cornerback missed only one game last season, but wasn’t anywhere near 100 percent after injuring his shoulder during a collision with Nick Collins in last year’s regular-season opener against New Orleans.
The injury bred some agitation, physically and mentally, at times, but today those troubles seem eons ago.
In our Sunday main story, we took a look at Williams and how he’s been one of the Packers’ healthiest defensive performers despite initial questions about the long-term effects of his nerve damage.
“I’m actually feeling really good,” Williams said. “Obviously, that may be the bye speaking, coming out of the bye, but I’m feeling really good. I feel like I have a lot more to go. I’m just taking off this season.”
