by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Rookie defensive end Leonard Williams, who is currently rehabbing a knee injury, tells Newsday that he is "definitely" planning to play in Week 1. 

Williams injured his knee when he was rolled up on during the Jets' preseason game last Saturday. There was major concern seeing as Williams is slated to be a starter, but he said the injury should not keep him off the field. 

"It's a little bit of a setback because I'm not able to practice," Williams said. "But it's not too much of a setback because they're not going full speed this week before the game. I'll be all right by the time the season opener starts."
