The former Florida State standout was originally drafted by the Texans in the sixth round of the supplemental draft in 2002.

He originally signed with Dallas as an undrafted rookie out of Alcorn State, and has seven career starts - all with the Raiders.
The moves left Jacksonville with two injured starters on the 53-man roster, Williams and center Brad Meester. Meester (biceps) is expected to miss at least the first four games.
