Patriots promote DB Williams

The Patriots have announced that they’ve promoted DB Malcolm Williams off the practice squad to the 53-man roster for Sunday’s game with St. Louis.

Williams, drafted last year out of Texas Christian, is considered primarily a special-teams player.

He fills the roster spot that opened when Ras-I Dowling was placed on injured reserve.
