The Buccaneers have announced that they have placed WR Mike Williams on season-ending injured reserve.
Williams first suffered a hamstring injury back on September 29 in a game against the Arizona Cardinals, and even though there was some concern regarding his availability for Thursday night’s game, he still managed to suit up and play. Clearly, this wasn’t the best decision.
Williams, 26, signed a six-year contract worth $40.25 million and includes $9.4 million guaranteed back in July of this year. Next season, his base salary will be $5.2 million along with $1 million roster bonus. He’s caught 22 passes for 216 yards and two touchdowns this season.
- Kaufman mentions that he is not sure if the Buccaneers will place Williams on season-ending injured reserve, but he added that “it doesn’t look good.”
Earlier in the day, Rick Stroud reported that the team was “concerned” about Williams’ hamstring injury, “and whether he can continue playing” this season.
