  • Jets' Quincy Williams: Has 110 tackles in breakout season

    Williams finished with 110 tackles (73 solo), two sacks, five passes defensed and three forced fumbles in 2021.

    Williams didn't make much of an impact over his first two NFL campaigns as a member of the Jaguars, but he found a home alongside his brother Quinnen with the Jets in his third NFL season. The pair made history when both recorded a sack in the Week 4 win over the Titans, becoming the first set of brothers to do so for one team in the same game since sacks became an official stat in 1982. Williams played a three-down role this season due to the Jets' lack of depth at linebacker, but his lackluster coverage skills could lead to Williams being subbed off more on third down in 2022 if New York addresses the linebacker position in the offseason.

  • Jets' Quincy Williams: Closing in on milestone

    Williams totaled 11 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Dolphins.

    Williams is closing in on the 100-tackle mark this season. He needs six tackles to get there in Week 16, and Williams will have some extra motivation to do so against the Jaguars team that selected the linebacker in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft but subsequently waived him in August of this year.

  • Jets' Quincy Williams: Tallies eight stops

    Williams recorded eight tackles and one pass defended in Sundays' 30-9 loss to the Saints.

He has now racked up at least seven stops in each of his last four games, including two double-digit tackle efforts.

  • Jets' Quincy Williams: Full practice Friday

    Williams (calf) was able to be a full participant at practice Friday.

    The linebacker came into the week a little banged up with a calf injury he sustained in Week 12 against the Texans, but he has ramped up his activity at practice each day and appears to be on track to play Sunday versus the Eagles. Williams has racked up 62 tackles on the season, with 22 of those coming over the last two contests.

  • Jets' Quincy Williams: Not expected to miss time

    Coach Robert Saleh said Monday that Williams (calf) is expected to be a full go this week, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

    Williams suffered the calf injury Sunday against the Texans, but it doesn't appear to be a serious issue. The 25-year-old's participation at practice later in the week should provide a better idea of his availability heading into Week 13.

  • Jets' Quincy Williams: Picks up calf injury

    Williams (calf) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Texans, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

    Williams was having a good game for the Jets as he had four tackles (one solo) and a sack before departing. Jarrad Davis should take over for him while he gets checked out.

  • Jets' Quincy Williams: Tackling machine in Week 11

    Williams totaled a game-high 15 tackles (10 solo), including two tackles for loss, in Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Dolphins.

    Williams flew around the field en route to a new career high in tackles. His previous best of 12 came in Week 4 of this season. Williams can be a liability in defending the pass, but his north-south game and effectiveness against the run have allowed him to carve out a prominent role in New York's underwhelming linebacker corps.

  • Jets' Quincy Williams: Clears concussion protocol

    Williams has cleared concussion protocols and doesn't have an injury designation heading into Sunday's contest against the Bengals, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

    As expected, Williams will likely be available for Week 8. The 25-year-old linebacker had to leave the Jets' Week 7 loss to the Patriots early, ending his four-game streak of at least six-plus tackles. He will look to get back on track against Joe Burrow and the Bengals on Sunday.

  • Jets' Quincy Williams: Likely available for Week 8

    Williams (concussion) is projected to clear concussion protocol and should be available for Sunday's contest against the Bengals, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

    Williams hasn't officially cleared concussion protocols, but he appears to be progressing well enough for the Jets to assume he will be available Sunday. The 25-year-old linebacker had to leave New York's Week 7 loss to the Patriots early, ending his four-game streak of least six-plus tackles. He will look to get back on track against Joe Burrow and the Bengals in Week 8.

  • Jets' Quincy Williams: Concussion confirmed

    Williams has been diagnosed with a concussion, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

    Williams sustained the injury in Sunday's loss to the Patriots and will need to clear concussion protocol before he can suit up moving forward. Quinnen Williams' brother has been a pleasant surprise for the Jets, but Quincy's status for New York's Week 8 clash with Cincinnati is murky. Further updates on Williams' status should surface once the Jets start practicing this week.

  • Jets' Quincy Williams: Might have suffered concussion

    Williams is being evaluated for a possible concussion.

    There's no clarity on whether Williams would be able to return to action, but he'd have to be cleared by an independent doctor to receive permission to return per the league's protocol. If he can't return, the Jets' secondary would get even more depleted -- and someone like Noah Dawkins might be in line to gain more playing time.

  • Jets' Quincy Williams: Forces two fumbles abroad

    Williams notched eight tackles (five solo) and two forced fumbles during Sunday's loss to the Falcons.

    Williams has 20 total tackles in his last two games, so by this point he's made a convincing argument to be trusted in IDP fantasy lineups. The third-year pro has played more than 90 percent of defensive snaps in all four of his appearances this season.

  • Jets' Quincy Williams: Twelve tackles against Titans

    Williams racked up 12 tackles (10 solo), a sack and two tackles for loss in Sunday's 27-24 overtime win over the Titans.

    Williams looked like he was shot out of a cannon, delivering a number of massive hits, including one that came inches from stuffing Derrick Henry short of the line to gain on fourth down in overtime. The Jets might have found a diamond in the rough in Quinnen Williams' unheralded brother, as Quincy has totaled 23 tackles over the last three games.

  • Jaguars' Quincy Williams: Back from injured reserve

    Williams (abdomen) was reinstated from injured reserve Saturday.

    The 24-year-old landed on injured reserve ahead of the season opener but is now fully clear of the abdominal injury. Williams had 48 tackles in 11 games as a rookie last season and could compete with Cassius Marsh for reps at strongside linebacker.
