Andy Reid says that Damien Williams "will be the full-time starter for the year" and that he "has earned the right to be that guy." Reid goes onto say that Williams "wants to do this thing" and has taken on the challenge to be the starter.
Damien Williams spent four years with the Dolphins, averaging under four-yards-per-carry, but exploded with Kansas City for 416 yards and three touchdowns on 73 touches after Kareem Hunt was released last season. The question is, can Williams keep up that kind of pace for a whole season and will Carlos Hyde be able to cut into his workload? Those are legitimate questions, but Williams has the job right now, has proven he works well in Kansas City's offense and should continue to be put into advantageous positions under Reid.
