The Lions released Williams from their practice squad Thursday.
Williams was released to make room for Nick Brossette on the practice squad. The 2018 seventh-round pick will look for an opportunity elsewhere in the league.
Williams signed with the Lions' practice squad Wednesday.
Williams failed to secure a spot on the Broncos' 53-man roster for the second straight year since they selected him in the seventh round of the 2018 NFL Draft. He'll learn the Lions' system in case their backfield is hit with injuries.
