Green Bay Packers cornerback Tramon Williams suffered a shoulder injury during week one of last season.  At the time the Packers didn’t think it was serious, but he apparently suffered some nerve damage.

“We did strength tests on my shoulder (in early June) and it was at about 50 percent when they tested,” Williams said on the last day of the team’s offseason programs, per FOX Sports Wisconsin. “It probably was worse during the season. It was bad. I hadn’t done anything on it for a while, trying to heal it up a little bit. I started my rehab process, did that for a couple weeks, then we did the strength test to see where we were.

“They tested my strong-arm, which is my left arm, and then the right arm, and my right arm was significantly weaker than my left arm. And this is my dominant arm, my right arm, so it was weak. Let’s just say that.

“It was terrible. If I hold my arm right here and told you to push it, I couldn’t do it, I couldn’t even hold it up, still.”

When Williams underwent testing on his right shoulder, his nerves weren’t reacting they way they should have been.

“I’ve done some testing in the offseason, I’ve done an EMG test, which tests the nerves,” Williams said. “The left side, everything was fine, 100 percent. And they got to the right side, and some of the nerve was firing right. Then they got to the spot where I got hit at, and it showed a significant difference that the nerve wasn’t firing like the rest of my nerves were.

“The nerve might have been firing at maybe 15 percent.”

Williams still believes he’ll be able to bounce back and have a much better year in 2012.

“I’m one of those guys who always was able to overcome adversity, so I don’t see no reason why I won’t go out there and do what I’ve done in the past,” Williams said.

Williams’ injury is bad news for the Packers who all of a sudden lack depth at the cornerback position with Charles Woodson likely moving to safety.
