Chiefs coach Andy Reid said he expects WR Kyle Williams (knee) to be ready for training camp.

Williams is rehabbing from his second ACL surgery in the last two years, so his camp status remains questionable despite Reid's comments. Even when healthy, Williams is a long shot to make Kansas City's roster. Williams appeared in just one game with the Chiefs last season after being claimed off waivers and was re-signed on a one-year, $730,000 contract.

Chiefs re-signed WR Kyle Williams.

The Chiefs claimed Williams off waivers from the 49ers in November last year, and he tore his left ACL a week later. Williams has now torn his left ACL twice in his NFL career. He'll be a long shot for Kansas City's 53-man roster.

Chiefs placed WR Kyle Williams on injured reserve with a torn ACL, ending his season.

Williams tore his left ACL almost exactly a year ago, and it sounds as if he tore the same one again. Claimed off waivers by the Chiefs from the 49ers nine days ago, he didn't catch a pass in the lone game he was active for Kansas City. Williams didn't look the same this season after last season's knee injury, so it's fair to wonder if his career may be coming to a close. Williams will be a free agent in the spring. Chad Hall has been re-signed to take his spot.

Chiefs claimed WR Kyle Williams off waivers from the 49ers.

Williams was waived on Tuesday after losing his starting job to Mario Manningham. He caught just 12 passes for 113 yards in nine games (five starts) with the 49ers and will be reunited with QB Alex Smith. Williams will be no higher than the No. 4 receiver in Kansas City and remains off the fantasy radar.

49ers waived WR Kyle Williams.

Williams "started" five of the 49ers' first nine games at receiver, but caught just 12 passes for 113 yards. He was also dead last in the league in punt-return average. Williams was a fringe NFL talent even before tearing his ACL last Thanksgiving, so it was extremely surprising how much time he got with San Francisco's offense. He's unlikely to draw much interest on waivers. The 49ers are moving forward with Mario Manningham opposite Anquan Boldin.

Kyle Williams was added to the Week 10 injury report with a knee injury.

Williams practiced in full Friday and is officially listed as probable, so it's not a major concern. With Mario Manningham set to return this week, Williams is going to lose considerable snaps opposite Anquan Boldin. Williams has just 11 catches for 108 yards through eight games.

49ers WR Kyle Williams caught one pass for seven yards in Sunday's Week 8 win over the Jaguars, adding one carry for ten yards.

Williams played the No. 2 receiver role with Jon Baldwin (illness) inactive, but that hasn't translated to much production for the reserve-caliber wideout all season, and again didn't today. Look for Mario Manningham (knee, PUP) to return after the 49ers' Week 9 bye, relegating Williams to a fourth receiver at best. Quinton Patton (foot) and Michael Crabtree (Achilles') are also eventually on their way back.

49ers WR Kyle Williams' offensive snaps took a significant dip in Thursday night's Week 4 win at St. Louis.

Williams was playing about 75 percent of the downs coming into the game. He only played 32 percent against the Rams, as the 49ers tried to work Quinton Patton into the mix more. Unfortunately, Patton left the game with a foot injury after playing only seven downs. The Niners are clearly mixing and matching at No. 2 wideout. Jon Baldwin played 16 snaps in his season debut.

Kyle Williams failed to record a catch in Week 4 against the Rams.

Even with Quinton Patton (foot) injured, Williams was only targeted once in the passing game. He has zero fantasy value and his contributions should continue to be limited to special teams.

Kyle Williams caught two passes for 12 yards in San Francisco's Week 3 loss to the Colts.

Even with Vernon Davis (hamstring) sidelined, Williams failed to make an impact. The 49ers need to give up the "Williams starting" ghost sooner rather than later. He doesn't have the talent to make an impact outside of special teams.
Sun, Sep 22, 2013 08:15:00 PM

Kyle Williams caught four passes for 39 yards in Sunday night's Week 2 loss to Seattle.

Williams led the 49ers in receiving and finished with six targets. He remains no higher than the third option in the passing game, but could see an expanded role if Vernon Davis (hamstring) misses any time.
Mon, Sep 16, 2013 01:51:00 AM

Kyle Williams had three catches for 36 yards in Sunday's Week 1 win over the Packers.

Williams started opposite Anquan Boldin and ran as the No. 2 wideout for the whole game. He still managed just six targets even though Colin Kaepernick attempted 39 passes. The Niners will stick with Williams for as long as it's working, but eventually turning to rookie Quinton Patton would give them more upside. Williams is not on the fantasy radar with Boldin and Vernon Davis hogging targets.

CSN Bay Area expects Kyle Williams to open the season as the 49ers' No. 2 wide receiver.

If so, he'd do it over Marlon Moore, who started all four preseason games, and rookie Quinton Patton, who figures to be the No. 3 receiver. "He's had an extremely good camp," coach Jim Harbaugh said of Williams. "(He's) getting better, getting faster. I think he's come back stronger and faster than he was before." Jon Baldwin and Chris Harper will likely be scratched on game day.

Kyle Williams is listed as the 49ers' No. 2 receiver on the team's official depth chart.

It's farcical coachspeak, as Williams — who has 35 career receptions — missed the entire preseason with knee and hamstring issues. The 49ers' true depth chart appears to have Marlon Moore starting opposite Anquan Boldin, with rookie Quinton Patton running as the No. 3. Williams appears to be one of coach Jim Harbaugh's favorite players, but he's miles from fantasy relevance.
