Kansas City Chiefs running back Damien Williams has opted out of the 2020 season, general manager Brett Veach said Wednesday.

Williams led the Chiefs in rushing last season with 498 yards and five touchdowns. He scored two touchdowns in Kansas City's Super Bowl victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

The Chiefs used their first-round draft pick in 2020 on running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire out of LSU, and he was expected to be a factor in the Chiefs' offense as a rookie.
