Bengals' Jonah Williams: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals placed Williams (knee) on injured reserve Wednesday.

Williams was carted off the field with a knee injury in last week's game against the Dolphins and he'll be out a minimum of three weeks. It's likely the Bengals will keep their prized 2019 first-round pick out the remainder of the season, so Hakeem Adeniji will assume the starting left tackle role as long as Williams is sidelined.

Williams (stinger) is active for Sunday's game at Pittsburgh, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

Williams suffered the stinger Oct. 25 against the Browns but is ready to retake the field this weekend. The 22-year-old should reclaim the starting spot at left tackle for the Bengals.

Bengals' Jonah Williams: Tagged as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (stinger) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

The Bengals have already ruled out right tackle Bobby Hart (knee), and they could be without Williams depending on how he progresses this weekend. Hakeem Adeniji will play at right tackle if Williams plays, and he'll likely start at left tackle if Williams sits out, bumping Keaton Sutherland to the right tackle position.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor provided a favorable timeline, however, signaling that it may have just been a stinger.

Bengals' Jonah Williams: Hopeful to bolster O-line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (shoulder) is expected to provide a significant boost for the Bengals' offensive line in 2020, Tony Mejia of NJ.com reports.

After spending his entire rookie season on the PUP list due to a torn labrum and only being cleared to practice in December, Williams is expected to take over as the starter at left guard for 2020. The 2019 first-round pick showcased outstanding technique and refinement at Alabama, offering reason for optimism that he could provide a tangible boost for the offensive line, though an offseason with shortened in-person activities could also work to his detriment.

Bengals' Jonah Williams: Cleared to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals have cleared Williams (shoulder) to resume practicing with the team Thursday.

Williams has spent the entire season on the PUP list after suffering a torn labrum in June. While the rookie first-round pick isn't expected to return to the active roster or participate in game action this season, according to Jay Morrison of The Athletic, he'll at least benefit from getting some practice reps in. The Alabama product projects to take over at left tackle for Cincinnati in 2020.

Bengals' Jonah Williams: Unlikely to return in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Zac Taylor said Williams (shoulder) isn't expected to return from the PUP list this season, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

The Bengals picked Williams in the first round (11th overall) of the 2019 NFL Draft, but he underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum in July and is slated to miss his entire rookie campaign. Cordy Glenn and Bobby Hart are expected to remain the starting tackles for the remainder of the Bengals' disappointing campaign.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (shoulder) was placed on the PUP list Thursday, Tyler Dragon of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Williams underwent surgery earlier this week to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder and is expected to miss the entire season, so this is just a procedural move. The rookie first-round pick figures to be shifted to injured reserve at some point.

Bengals' Jonah Williams: Gets season-ending surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (shoulder) underwent surgery Tuesday to repair a torn labrum and is expected to miss his entire rookie season, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official website reports.

The 11th overall pick in this year's draft was set to take over at left tackle, pushing Cordy Glenn inside to left guard. Glenn now figures to man his accustomed spot, while Clint Boling (undisclosed), John Jerry and Christian Westerman are the leading candidates to take over at left guard. Williams should make a full recovery before the Bengals start their offseason program next year.

Bengals' Jonah Williams: Not partaking in minicamp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams has been in attendance during minicamp but hasn't been practicing due to an undisclosed injury, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

Coach Zac Taylor wouldn't comment on the severity or nature of Williams' situation, only saying that the rookie first-round pick is scheduled to visit doctors. It seems likely the Bengals will hold Williams out through the end of minicamp with the goal of getting him ready for the start of training camp in late July.

Bengals' Jonah Williams: Picked up by Cincy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals selected Williams in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 11th overall.

A three-year starter at Alabama with experience at both tackle spots, Williams brings a significant infusion of talent the Bengals' line. There is some question as to his future as an NFL left tackle due to his average athleticism and length, but Williams' technique and play style are top notch. He can start right away, although Bobby Hart and Cordy Glenn profile as the starting tackles as it stands. With that, Williams could begin his career at guard before ultimately moving back out to his natural position of tackle.
