Once Williams is recovered from his core muscle injury, Jacksonville will designate him to return to the active roster.
Williams dealt with knee and hand injuries last year as a rookie, the latter which landed him on injured reserve.
Teams can place and activate as many players as they want from injured reserve this year as long as the player stays on the list three weeks.
Williams, 24, was the No. 98 overall pick by the Jaguars out of Murray State. He’s entering the second year of a four-year, $3,342,172 rookie contract that included an $822,172 signing bonus.
In 2019, Williams appeared in 11 games for the Jaguars and recorded 48 total tackles.
