CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns have suspended cornerback K’Waun Williams for two weeks and fined him for multiple violations of team rules.
The team announced the suspension on Wednesday. Williams sat out Cleveland’s first exhibition game Friday night against the Green Bay Packers after suffering an ankle injury the week prior at a scrimmage at Ohio Stadium in Columbus.
Though the Browns expected Williams to be ready for the exhibition, he reportedly decided his ankle was too sore for him to play. The third-year cornerback hasn’t practiced for the Browns since missing the exhibition.
Coach Hue Jackson addressed the issue after practice on Tuesday, but wouldn’t confirm any details.
“We’ll talk about that at a different time,” Jackson said. “I just think there are a lot of mixed messages that are going on as far as all that’s concerned. I think we’ll deal with it, and I’m sure we’ll all talk about it at the appropriate time.”
