Jets' Quinnen Williams: Out at least two months
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams underwent surgery to repair a broken bone in his foot and will be out the next 10-to-12 weeks, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

The surgery means Williams will miss all of OTAs and June minicamp, but coach Robert Saleh believes the defensive end should be healthy in time for training camp. In two seasons with the Jets, the 23-year-old has emerged as one of the best players along the team's defensive front, registering 83 tackles and 9.5 sacks across 26 games.

Jets' Quinnen Williams: Breaks bone in foot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams likely will need surgery after breaking a small bone in his foot, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

The surgery, assuming it happens, would come with a recovery estimate of 8-to-10 weeks, ruling Williams out for OTAs and June minicamp. He'd still have a shot to be ready for the start of training camp, though the Jets might ease him into practice even if he seems healthy again. Williams looked the part of a No. 3 overall pick in his second pro season, finishing 2020 with 55 tackles and seven sacks in only 13 games.

Jets' Quinnen Williams: Officially placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (neck/concussion) was placed on IR on Wednesday.

This move was just a formality, as it came out earlier in the day that Williams would miss the season's final two games to heal up from the injuries he suffered while taking a hit to the head in Sunday's win over the Rams. Prior to exiting the contest, Williams picked up his fifth sack in the last seven games, bringing his total to seven on the season. He also contributed 55 tackles and two forced fumbles over his 13 games.

Jets' Quinnen Williams: Done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets plan to shut Williams down for the final two games of the season while he contends with a neck injury and concussion, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

According to Schefter, New York is expected to place Williams on injured reserve, with that transaction perhaps becoming official later Wednesday. After a quiet rookie season, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft broke out in his sophomore campaign, tallying 55 tackles and seven sacks in 13 games.

Jets' Quinnen Williams: Goes into concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Adam Gase said that Williams entered concussion protocol Sunday, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

New York delivered a spirited 23-20 victory over the heavily favored Rams to end a winless 2020 campaign, but the upset didn't come without an injury to one of the team's defensive stalwarts. Williams has been emerging as a pocket disruptor in his second pro campaign, collecting his seventh sack of the season Sunday after generating just two a year ago. The Alabama product has also produced more than double the number of QB hits compared to his 2019 output. Looking forward, Williams will have to clear the NFL's five-step concussion protocol if he is to be activated for a Week 16 game against Cleveland.

Jets' Quinnen Williams: Takes hit to head
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Rams because of a head injury, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

Williams absorbed an accidental hit in the head from a teammate, rendering Nathan Shepherd as the next man up at defensive end for the time being. The 2019 No. 3 overall draft choice had racked up three tackles and a sack prior to his second-half departure. He's been heating up of late, with four sacks over his past five appearances.

Jets' Quinnen Williams: Disrupts pocket in loss to Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams registered seven tackles, 1.5 sacks, two pass defections and a forced fumble during Sunday's 20-3 loss to Miami.

Three QB hits against the Dolphins marked a single-game career high for the 2019 No. 3 overall draft choice. This breakthrough may have been foreseeable from Williams, as he has been finding ways to reach the quarterback with greater frequency over his past four appearances. He has three sacks in a quarter-season sample size since Week 7, after recording two sacks over his first six appearances of 2020. Williams has bounced back nicely from a hamstring injury that held him out Week 9 against New England, with as many tackles the past two outings as he's had in any two-game stretch all season.

Jets' Quinnen Williams: Wreaks havoc in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams recorded seven tackles (four solo), 1.5 sacks, a tackle for loss, two passes defensed and three quarterback hits in Sunday's 20-3 loss to Miami.

Williams' strong effort was a silver lining as the Jets fell to 0-11. The third overall selection from the 2019 draft consistently got into Miami's backfield and made life difficult for Ryan Fitzpatrick. Williams is up to five sacks on the season, including three in his last four games.

Jets' Quinnen Williams: Cleared for Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (hamstring) won't carry an injury tag into Sunday's game versus the Chargers.

Williams practiced Wednesday for the first time since suffering a hamstring injury in a Week 8 loss to the Chiefs, and he upgraded to full participation Friday, clearing him for Sunday's game. The 2019 first-round pick has recorded three sacks and eight quarterback pressures this year, and he'll aim to make rookie Justin Herbert uncomfortable in the pocket Sunday.

Jets' Quinnen Williams: Aiming to practice this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Adam Gase said Monday that he hopes Williams (hamstring) is able to practice with limitations Wednesday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Williams suffered a hamstring injury in the Week 8 loss to the Chiefs, and it appears he'll have a chance to return after three weeks of recovery. However, if he's not ready or the Jets opt to take a cautious approach, Nathan Shepherd or John Franklin-Myers will pick up the reps at defensive end.

Jets' Quinnen Williams: Can't go for MNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (hamstring) is inactive heading into the Jets' matchup against New England on Monday night.

The 2019 No. 3 overall draft choice was designated as doubtful Saturday after being unable to participate in practice at all throughout the week. Williams had exited last Sunday's loss to Kansas City with a hamstring issue, though he was able to return to action Week 8. With the issue remaining bothersome to the point that Williams is not able to go against New England, Nathan Shepherd will now see an increase in usage at defensive end.

Jets' Quinnen Williams: Deemed doubtful
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets have listed Williams (hamstring) as doubtful for Monday's game against the Patriots, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Williams was unable to practice all week and it seems that he will need a quick turnaround in health to have any chance of suiting up Monday night. Nathan Shepherd (back) would presumably replace him at defensive end, but it should be noted that he is listed as questionable.

Jets' Quinnen Williams: DNP to start week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

Coach Adam Gase said Williams' lingering injury will be taken day by day, and that the second-year pro's status for Week 9 remains uncertain. Fellow defensive linemen John Franklin-Myers (knee) and Nathan Shepherd (back) are also banged up.

Jets' Quinnen Williams: Hamstring remains bothersome
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury during Sunday's loss to the Chiefs and could miss some practice time, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

The 22-year-old exited Sunday's contest due to the hamstring injury and was able to return, but the injury still proves bothersome. Williams may be limited or absent from practice this week, but he should at least have a chance to play Week 9 given he already played through the injury.

Jets' Quinnen Williams: Right back in against KC
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (hamstring) was briefly removed from Sunday's matchup against the Chiefs but he has since returned to action, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

The Alabama product has been made available at the onset of the fourth quarter, as Kansas City will likely try to grind the clock from here on out, in control of a three-possession lead. Williams and the Jets have kept the Chiefs' potent ground attack in check through three quarters, limiting the team to under 30 rushing yards.

Jets' Quinnen Williams: Hamstring issue pops up again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (hamstring) is questionable to return to Sunday's matchup against the Chiefs.

The 2019 No. 3 overall draft choice was dealing with a hamstring issue heading into a Week 6 trip to Miami, but he was able to suit up for more than 60 percent of the defensive snaps during that contest. Williams made it through last week's 18-10 loss to Buffalo with no issue either, but he's once again beleaguered by a hamstring injury in the midst of a visit to Arrowhead Stadium. Should Williams be unavailable to return, Nathan Shepherd would be in line for more opportunities at defensive end.

Jets' Quinnen Williams: Active as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (hamstring) will suit up in Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

It was reported earlier Sunday that Williams was on track to play after preparing in practice in a limited capacity. Now healthy, Williams will assume his usual starting role across the Jets' defensive line. The Alabama product has logged just 19 tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble this year.

Jets' Quinnen Williams: On track to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (hamstring), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, is expected to play, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Williams' status will be confirmed with the release of the Jets' inactive list, which is expected to be revealed around 11:30 a.m. ET. After a disappointing rookie season in 2019, Williams has shown improved production through the Jets' first five contests of 2020, logging 19 tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble.

October 16, 2020 05:32 PM
Jets' Quinnen Williams: Deemed questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (hamstring) is considered questionable for Sunday's game versus the Dolphins.

Williams was able to practice all week, albeit in a limited capacity, so he appears to have a good chance to play in Sunday's divisional contest. If he ends up sitting out, Kyle Phillips and Nathan Shepherd will both handle increased duties at defensive end.

October 14, 2020 04:12 PM
Jets' Quinnen Williams: Limited to begin week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams was limited in Wednesday's practice due to a groin injury, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Williams appears to have sustained a groin injury during Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, in which he handled 55 percent of defensive snaps and logged three tackles (one solo). Other than a Week 2 performance against the 49ers in which he notched two sacks, Williams has been quiet through the first five games of the season.
