Bears coach Matt Rhule says Williams will be back in the lineup after missing the first three games while recovering from offseason shoulder surgery.

The coach also said Tuesday that senior safety Taion Sells has completed his three-game suspension for an unspecified offseason incident and cornerback Grayland Arnold is back after breaking his left arm during a preseason scrimmage.

Williams says he’s now 100 percent and intends to make up for the game he missed for the Bears (0-3). The junior ran for 1,048 yards and 11 touchdowns last season.
