Packers coach Mike McCarthy expects Williams to be part of a committee backfield, ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky reports. "We've got young players that we really like that all played really well, but it's been in short periods of time," McCarthy said. "Ty Montgomery had a run there where he was outstanding. Jamaal has probably been the most available of the three, and Aaron [Jones] has been so impactful when he's been in there."
Watson (knee) practiced without a brace at mandatory minicamp this week, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports. "The knee is doing good," Watson said Wednesday. "For the nine-week goal we put in from the beginning [of the offseason program], I'm pretty much where I wanted to be. Kind of passed it inside in the weight room, mentally and also on the field, so everything's going smoothly right now."
Hines was used in the backfield, in the slot, and out wide in minicamp, which likely indicates that he'll be a significant part of offense coordinator Nick Sirianni's no-huddle, up-tempo offense, the Indianapolis Star reports. "He's just hard to understand defensively, in my mind, how you're going to play him," Sirianni said.
Cain has drawn praise from the coaching staff during this week's minicamp and has put himself in the competition for playing time at wide receiver, the Indianapolis Star reports. "I've seen playmaking ability, I've seen really good body control," said head coach Frank Reich. "Good speed. Good route runner. With a lot of young guys, you just need to fight for the consistency to do it every play."
