CB Tramon Williams Still Having Shoulder Issues

Packers cornerback Tramon Williams’ injured his right shoulder in Week 1 of the 2011 season and according to Paul Imig of Foxsportswisconsin, it still has not returned to full strength and could limit him in training camp.

“We did strength tests on my shoulder (in early June) and it was at about 50 percent when they tested,” Williams said on the last day of the team’s offseason programs. “It probably was worse during the season. It was bad. I hadn’t done anything on it for a while, trying to heal it up a little bit. I started my rehab process, did that for a couple weeks, then we did the strength test to see where we were.

“They tested my strong arm, which is my left arm, and then the right arm, and my right arm was significantly weaker than my left arm. And this is my dominant arm, my right arm, so it was weak. Let’s just say that.

“It was terrible. If I hold my arm right here and told you to push it, I couldn’t do it, I couldn’t even hold it up, still.”

“I’ve done some testing in the offseason, I’ve done an EMG test, which tests the nerves,” Williams said. “The left side, everything was fine, 100 percent. And they got to the right side, and some of the nerve was firing right. Then they got to the spot where I got hit at, and it showed a significant difference that the nerve wasn’t firing like the rest of my nerves were.

    Tramon Williams, after the injury, essentially all season, was one of the worst DB’s in the NFL…He was a major reason why the Packers defense was the absolute most inefficient in the entire league. The Packers cannot have Tramon Williams on the 53-man roster for what he accomplished in 2010…If he cannot play at a high level, he should either be placed on the PUP-list or released. We have to see what our other DB’s can do. Because TW was a liability all season. NFL-“Not for Long”…
