Kyle Williams out for season with ruptured Achilles tendon


WR Kyle Williams was taken in by the training staff after sustaining an Achilles injury during special teams drills on Saturday.

Williams subsequently shared via Instagram the news that he will miss the 2015 season because of the injury, which an afternoon MRI examination revealed to be a rupture of the tendon.

"It's hard for me at this point to make sense of all of this but at the end of the day I understand and trust God's plan for me," Williams said via Instagram. "My determination to get back and my work ethic will not diminish and I will eventually get back to full strength. I appreciate all those who have reached out and all of those who are praying. You all mean more to me than [you] know. Thank you."

"He had been doing good," Head Coach Gary Kubiak said after practice. "I know he's had some issues the last couple places he'd been with some things. But he has a lot of talent. He has some return ability, which is something key for our team and was doing a good job."

The injury was all the more devastating given how Williams battled back from previous injuries to compete on the Broncos during the offseason.

"He came back in great shape and he was just doing some return stuff and wasn't even touched," Kubiak added. "So it's one of those things, you just feel bad for him. I know he's very disappointed. I'm just trying to support him the best we can."
