Carolina Panthers running DeAngelo Williams was asked about his resurgence in 2013, as he already has 291 yards rushing in three games.

Williams hasn't broken the 1,000-yard barrier since 2010, but with Jonathan Stewart out, he has done well with the extra workload thus far. But Williams had another reason for his resurgence - the departure of former offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski, who left to become the head coach of the Cleveland Browns.

"I'm not going to start anything or push anything out there," Williams told ESPN. "I can say this, though -- a different offensive coordinator. I can definitely say that. The last offensive coordinator got rid of his starting running back."

Williams was referring to the Browns trading Trent Richardson to the Colts last week.

The point Williams was trying to make is that new Panthers OC Mike Shula has relied on the running game more with the Panthers than Chudzinski did last year, thus increasing Williams' carries.
