The Cleveland Browns didn’t send out many of their starters in Sunday’s preseason game against the New York Giants. Unfortunately, one starting cornerback the Browns did send out was forced to leave early.
According to ProFootballTalk, Browns third-year corner Greedy Williams left the game in the first quarter. The team announced that it was a groin injury, and Williams did not return to the game. The Browns went on to beat the Giants, 17-13.
It’s an unfortunate setback for Williams, who missed all of last season due to a nerve injury. That missed season was one of the reasons the Browns decided to start Williams in the preseason game in the first place.
Thankfully, NFL insider Josina Anderson reported that Williams’ injury appears to be a “slight groin pull” rather than something more serious. Anderson’s source said Williams “should be fine.”

Greedy Williams was a second-round pick by the Cleveland Browns in the 2019 NFL Draft. As a rookie he started 12 games, recording 47 tackles and two passes defended.
His injury in 2020 didn’t keep the Browns defense from doing just enough to go 11-5, reach the playoffs and earn their first postseason win in a generation.
The Browns would certainly like to have their penciled-in starting cornerback back as they try to improve their defense for the coming year.
