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.
