Jamaal Williams Scores Touchdown, Has Career-Long Run On MNF
GREEN BAY, Wis. – Former BYU and current Green Bay Packers running back Jamaal Williams scored his second touchdown of the season on Monday Night Football.
Williams gave the Packers their first touchdown as quarterback Aaron Rodgers quickly pitched the ball in front of him as Williams was running near him and the former BYU star running back used a stiff arm before running into the end zone.
The score trimmed the Packers deficit to 13-7 against the Detroit Lions. To that point in the game, Williams had seven carries for 77 yards and caught 3 passes for 28 yards and the touchdown. One of his runs was the longest of his career of 45 yards.
The first touchdown he scored this season was a 15-yard catch against the Minnesota Vikings on September 15. He missed the Packers last game against the Dallas Cowboys after suffering a concussion on Thursday Night Football when they lost to the Philadelphia Eagles.
The game against the Lions is his first game back since suffering the injury.
