He walked away with some scratches on his face, along with a concussion and neck strain.

Thankfully, he and the other driver were not severely injured.

"First thing was thank you, God, because it could've been worse. I was thinking about my son a lot. I could've been gone that fast without saying goodbye. I was going home to him. I think I was five to six minutes from my house. So, the accident, I look back over and I'm just thankful for life,"

Williams was not able to play against the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday.
