Former UConn star Williams added to Redskins roster

It's been a whirlwind of a season for UConn's career sacks leader Trevardo Williams, who was promoted to the active roster by the Washington Redskins today.

Williams began the season with the Houston Texans, the team which selected him in the fourth round of the 2013 draft but he was released on Aug. 1. He was signed by the Arizona Cardinals the next day but cut on Aug. 8. He was signed to the practice squad by the Indianapolis Colts on Sept. 23 before being let down on Nov. 25. The Redskins became the fourth NFL team to take a chance on Williams, who has been dealing with injuries since the 2013 NFL Combine by signing him to the practice squad a week ago.

The Redskins play at the New York Giants on Sunday so if he were to make his NFL regular-season debut, his friends and family from Bridgeport won't have far to go.

Taking an 180-degree turn, former UConn cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson was placed on season-ending injured reserve by the Tennessee Titans after he separated his shoulder in Sunday's loss to the Giants.
