Jonathan Williams will not face NFL discipline for 2016 arrest

Bills lose to steelers 27-20

Bills second-year running back Jonathan Williams now has a clear path to the number two job behind LeSean McCoy.

The NFL informed Williams that he will not be disciplined under the league's substance abuse policy for his arrest on suspicion of DWI last July.

Williams was found not guilty on the charge in early June. Today's news was the final hurdle to clear.

The 2016 fifth round pick out of Arkansas has drawn rave reviews from new head coach Sean McDermott so far this offseason. While McCoy recovered from a stomach virus during mandatory minicamp, Williams stepped in and took the first-team reps.

The Bills lost former backup Mike Gillislee in free agency to the New England Patriots this offseason.
