Denver Broncos rookie running back Javonte Williams looked sharp in his NFL debut on Saturday evening, rushing five times for 29 yards in a 33-6 preseason win over the Minnesota Vikings. The second-round draft pick also rushed for a touchdown, but the score was nullified by a holding penalty.

The story said the team wanted to see Williams and his ability to break tackles and felt he was able to do that in his first preseason game. Williams is trending to be the team's Week 1 starter despite Gordon still being around. Gordon was a no-show for OTAs and the team traded up to get Williams so things are beginning to add up. It's a battle to keep an eye on this summer before drafts.
