The Pro Bowl players have been practicing in Hawaii since Wednesday for a game in jeopardy unless the quality of play improves.

The Pro Bowl appearance is marking something of a personal comeback for Williams, who was suspended four games in 2011 for testing positive multiple times for marijuana.

The 24-year-old former first-round pick in 2009 owned up to his mistake and worked to rebuild his reputation. He was elected a team captain on offense this season.
