He also has returned 21 punts for 170 yards (8.1 avg.) and 28 kickoffs for 673 yards (24.0 avg.).

A sixth-round pick in the 2010 NFL draft (206th overall), Williams starred collegiately at Arizona State, where he amassed 109 receptions for 1,626 yards (14.9 avg.), 74 punt returns for 768 yards (10.4 avg.) and 31 kickoff returns for 709 yards (22.9 avg.).

Hall, meanwhile, was acquired by the Chiefs on waivers on Sept. 1 from the Philadelphia Eagles, Chiefs coach Andy Reid's former team.
