Jets' Leonard Williams: Clear of injury designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (back) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Colts.

Williams was sidelined at practice Thursday but was able to return in full Friday to avoid the questionable tag, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports. The 24-year-old will have his usual starting role on the defensive line for the Jets on Sunday.

Jets' Leonard Williams: Sidelined at Thursday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams did not participate in Thursday's practice due to a back injury, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports.

It appears that there is still plenty of unknown surrounding Williams' health, as head coach Todd Bowles suggested that the defensive end is still undergoing testing. Popping up on the injury report this late in the week is never a good sign, and Leonard will likely have to at least put in limited work Friday in order to have any chance of playing Sunday against the Colts.

Jets' Leonard Williams: Two sacks in Week 5 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams recorded five tackles (two solo), including two sacks, in Sunday's win over Denver.

Williams now has three sacks over the past two weeks after failing to notch one in the team's first three games. He's already bested his total from last season and is on pace for the highest single-season sack output of his career. He'll aim to continue his success and take down Andrew Luck as the Jets face off against the Colts next Sunday.

Jets' Leonard Williams: Records first sack of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams posted five tackles (four solo), including a sack in Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Williams' sack Sunday was his first of the season. He hasn't had prolific numbers despite being a quality player throughout his career. He'll aim to stack success when the Jets take on the Broncos in Week 5.

Jets' Leonard Williams: Has fifth-year option exercised
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets are expected to exercise Williams' fifth-year team option before the May 3 deadline, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Williams, now entering his fourth season, hasn't produced to the degree some expected of the 2015 first-round pick. However, Williams' meager sack total -- he has only 12 in 48 career games -- isn't entirely reflective of his pass-rushing impact; Williams has recorded 65 quarterback hits to date, including 25 in 2017, when he played through a preseason wrist injury. The Jets' decision to pick up his team option for 2019 is thus not surprising, especially since Williams' salary for that fifth year won't become guaranteed until the start of the new league year next spring.
