The Baltimore Ravens are off to a hot start. And so too is running back Ty’Son Williams.

Playing in his first career NFL game, Williams wasted little time making a name for himself as he took a 4th-and-1 carry for 35 yards to score his first NFL touchdown.

The Ravens opted to go for it on fourth down after tight end Mark Andrews came up just short on third down. The decision made by head coach John Harbaugh paid off as Williams’ run gave Baltimore the 7-0 lead.

Fantasy owners who picked up Williams following injuries to J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards are rejoicing. As are Ravens fans who hoped to see Williams fill their shoes in Week 1.

Ty’Son Williams is off to a hot start with the Ravens

A former undrafted free agent, Williams was signed in late August of 2020 as was seen as little more than a camp body. He spent his entire rookie season on the Ravens practice squad and returned in 2021 looking to stick.

He made a strong case for himself after a standout summer that saw him emerge as one of the team’s top preseason performers. And truth be told, even if everyone was healthy, there’s a good chance Williams would have made the roster.

Now with Dobbins, Edwards, and Justice Hill sidelined, it’ll be Williams who carries the load.

Williams is wasting little time acquainting himself with the national audience here on Monday Night Football.
