ESPN Packers blogger Rob Demovsky believes CB Tramon Williams' 2014 roster spot could be in jeopardy.

Williams will turn 31 in March and is scheduled to earn $7.5 million next season, the final year of his contract. GM Ted Thompson typically likes to cut players above 30 who make that much money. However, Williams is having a fine season. He's graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 15 corner, excelling against the run. The Packers need to be adding quality DBs, not getting rid of them.

Packers CB Tramon Williams (knee) returned to practice Monday.

It was just a limited session in a pad-less practice, but Williams has put himself back on pace for Week 1. Williams is recovering from a bone bruise. Provided he doesn't suffer a setback, Williams should be ready to start opposite Casey Hayward in the opener.

Packers CB Tramon Williams (knee) believes he'll be ready for Week 1.

"I think so," Williams said. "I thought I’d be playing now. But I think so." The 30-year-old has been out for the past two-plus weeks with a bone bruise on his knee, and he needs rest. Fifth-rounder Micah Hyde and Sam Shields have been taking the first-team reps opposite Casey Hayward in Williams' absence.

Packers CB Tramon Williams (knee) is uncertain whether he'll play in any preseason games.

Williams hurt his knee last week and is still awaiting word on all of the medical opinions. Tests showed some bruising, but he doesn't believe surgery will be necessary. Williams is penciled in as Green Bay's top corner.

Packers CB Tramon Williams (knee) is expected to miss a couple weeks.

Williams sustained a knee injury during practice on Monday. NFL Network is hearing it's a cartilage issue and has nothing to do with the ligament. Despite coming off back-to-back disappointing years, Williams is penciled in as the Packers' No. 1 corner this season.

The nerve damage in Packers CB Tramon Williams' shoulder has "dramatically healed" after an offseason of yoga, jump-rope, and weightlifting.

Williams' 2013 goal is to replace Charles Woodson in the secondary leadership role. To be taken seriously by teammates, he's going to have to keep his starting job -- a position the Packers opened to competition. Getting the shoulder right is a good first step. Williams has been a disappointment the past two years.

Packers CB Tramon Williams says his shoulder is "better."

"Trust me. It's better than last year. But last year I was good," Williams said Tuesday. "The structure was good. But when it comes to nerves, it's time. And there's nothing at all you can do about it. It's time. Time passes and it gets better, so I'm better." Williams made waves in a March radio interview when he said the shoulder was a hindrance in 2012, but he now claims he was talking about 2011. The Packers haven't guaranteed Williams a starting job for 2013. Casey Hayward and Sam Shields were both better last season.

Packers CB Tramon Williams says the shoulder injury that he suffered in Week 1 of 2011 still hasn't fully healed.

"I had some tears in my shoulder and I had nerve damage in my shoulder, and it was tough," Williams said. "I only missed one game because of it, but it should have been one of those things to where I should have sat down for quite a few games. ... I’m still working on it and hopefully it comes all the way back this year." Williams hasn't been the same player since the end of the 2010 season, and this may explain why. He hasn't been guaranteed a starting spot for 2013.

Packers CBs coach Joe Whitt stopped short of guaranteeing Tramon Williams would start in 2013 after Green Bay's playoff loss.

"I wouldn’t say (Williams) is on the downside, I would say that Sam (Shields) has picked up his level of play, Casey (Hayward) ... played better than I expected him to play," Whitt said. "So the competition in the room has gotten better, and so that’s the case. I think Tramon, he graded out pretty well in most games. He covered pretty good. Just the competition in the room has improved."

Packers CB Tramon Williams is expected to shadow Calvin Johnson Sunday.

Williams says he -- and not Seahawks CB Richard Sherman -- is the real Optimus Prime. "I'm the leader of the Autobots," he insisted Wednesday. Last year, Williams matched up with Megatron twice. In the first showdown, he held Johnson to a 4/49/1 line. In Week 17, Johnson popped off for 11 catches, 244 yards and one touchdown.

Packers RCB Tramon Williams says that his troublesome right shoulder is "holding up."

"It’s feeling fine," he said. "It’s doing well so I’m excited about that. I feel good, I feel good — better than I ever have last year. I feel, as I watch film, that I’m even moving better. So I think I’m ready to go." Williams started each of Green Bay's first two preseason games, and will do the same come Week 1.

Packers RCB Tramon Williams disputes unsubstantiated reports that the nerve damage in his right shoulder is career-threatening.

Williams took a "rare hit" from FS Nick Collins in the supraspinatus nerve near the shoulder blade during the 2011 season opener. "During the season, I couldn't lift a 30, 35 pound dumbbell over my head," said Williams. "Now I'm up to a 90 pound dumbbell. I'm not a doctor, but that's progress." Although Williams is still rehabbing the shoulder, he expects to return to pre-injury form this year.

Packers RCB Tramon Williams estimates his troublesome right shoulder is "50 percent," and believes he could be limited in camp.

"They tested my strong arm, which is my left arm, and then the right arm, and my right arm was significantly weaker than my left arm," Williams said. "The nerve might have been firing at maybe 15 percent." Williams played through the injury last season, but it severely limited his effectiveness. Williams' ability to rediscover his past form is critical for Green Bay's pass defense turnaround.

Packers RCB Tramon Williams' troublesome right shoulder is 100 percent structurally, but he's still dealing with nerve damage.

"There's no muscles or anything there, so obviously in some directions that I move, my arm is substantially weak," Williams said. "So that's what I've been working on this offseason — try to get those other muscles strong enough so I can compensate." The injury severely hampered Williams' ability to tackle and press last, causing him to be one of the most frequent burn victims in Green Bay's historically bad secondary. His health will be worth monitoring in camp.
