Damien Williams on Wednesday opted out of the NFL season, and now we know it’s due to an unfortunate health situation in his family.
The Kansas City Chiefs running back said during an interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio Thursday that his mother was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer.
“I’m dealing with a family matter. My mom was just diagnosed with cancer, and it’s Stage IV. There was no other … with everything that’s going on … she was the only one there for me. I never had the opportunity to have my dad there,” Williams said.
