Terrance Williams looked a little lost when training camp started in California.

The rookie receiver has started to figure it out.

The third-round pick out of Baylor is coming off a career day in last week's 51-48 loss to Denver. The first score of his career was an 82-yard touchdown, and he finished with four catches for 151 yards.

The big day came a week after a solid outing for Williams in San Diego was spoiled by a fumble at the goal line that ended all hope for a comeback.

Williams says he wants to "keep building off the good plays" as he prepares for Sunday night's game against Washington and his old Baylor quarterback, Robert Griffin III.
