Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett was impressed by Ryan Williams’s fourth quarter performance against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday night. Fighting for and currently behind Joseph Randle in the competition for the No. 3 running back spot, Williams posted 36 yards and a touchdown on five carries on Saturday, all in the fourth quarter.
His most impressive run was a 27-yarder, in which Williams lowered his pads and ran over a defender before finally being dragged down. Shortly thereafter, he took in the three-yard touchdown run.
“He helped himself, there’s no question about that,” Garrett said, per ESPN Dallas. “He’s a good runner. He and I have had some conversations over the course of training camp, and sometimes guys just need to get the weight of the world off their shoulders and just go play and play with a passion and a spirit.
“He certainly did that tonight, and we saw him break tackles, run over guys and just play with that elusiveness that we saw in him coming out of school.”
