Rookie running back's first NFL 100-yard rushing performance earns league honors

GREEN BAY – Packers running back Jamaal Williams has been voted the FedEx Ground Player of the Week for his performance in Sunday's 26-20 overtime win over Tampa Bay.

Williams finished the game with 21 carries for 113 yards (5.4 avg) and a touchdown.

Williams is the second Green Bay player to win Ground Player of the Week honors this season, joining fellow rookie running back Aaron Jones, who won ground honors for his Week 7 performance against New Orleans.

The rookie fourth-round pick has amassed 458 total yards (303 rushing, 155 receiving) and four touchdowns since replacing an injured Aaron Jones and Ty Montgomery in the second half against Chicago on Nov. 12.
