With Williams now out and on the COVID list, according to reports by Tom Pelissero, the current plan seems to be going with Ervin and Williams vs. the 49ers, Rapoport said. Ervin has 10 career carries and Williams has 5. Ervin mostly returned kicks for the Packers while Williams has been on the practice squad. Neither are really great plays against the 49ers, but there could at least be some volume between the two for those owners in need.
Both did not practice today and the league is determining if they are high-risk close contacts. With Jones dealing with a calf injury it's possible the Packers are suddenly without their top-three backs against the 49ers on Thursday night. Ervin and Williams are next up but it's turning into a situation that will need to be monitored over the next few days to see what Williams' status will be for Thursday.
