Williams played a pivotal role in the Chiefs 2019 success by leading the team in rushing (489 yards).  Due to injuries, Williams was limited to 11 regular-season games and six starts last season.

Playing in the Super Bowl, he rushed for 104 yards and scored the game's final two touchdowns in the fourth quarter. Williams also scored six touchdowns in the Chiefs' three postseason games.

"As an organization, we certainly understand and respect Damien's choice, knowing it was made in the best interest of his family,'' general manager Brett Veach said Wednesday. "He means a lot to our football team as a player and a person, and we're going to miss having him around this season.''

Starting guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif also opted out of the 2020 season.
