Seahawks will feel Mike Williams' impact

The Seattle Seahawks' passing game would get a significant boost if coach Pete Carroll is right about receiver Mike Williams likely returning from a foot injury Sunday.

Williams has 32 receptions in the Seahawks' last three victories. He had six catches for 109 yards in two-plus quarters before leaving the team's game against New Orleans in Week 11. He missed the Seahawks' game against Kansas City last week.

Williams ranks among the NFL leaders in third-down receptions and third-down receptions for first downs. Seattle has had trouble sustaining drives without him.
