Williams was injured when he was tackled on a third quarter carry. He was grabbed by the facemask as he was tackled by multiple Auburn players and his neck was jerked back. Arkansas eventually beat Auburn 54-46 in four overtimes.
Williams was a three-star recruit in the class of 2015 out of Bishop Lynch High School in Dallas according to Rivals. He had four carries for 18 yards against Auburn and has 56 carries for 254 yards and a touchdown in 2015.
