Diminutive Williams defies odds as NFL running back

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) Kerwynn Williams has defied the odds, over and over.

Consistently told he was too small, Williams kept working, from practice squad, to being released, to practice squad again and to the active roster.

"That's pretty much what I've relied on my whole life," Williams said after the Arizona Cardinals practiced Wednesday. "I feel like everybody's seen the same thing. Everybody's looked at me seeing I'm not tall. I'm not the biggest guy out there so I relied on my work ethic to get me through."
