The injury will keep Williams out for the next 8-10 weeks, per Pelissero, which knocks him out for OTAs and minicamp but should allow him to return during training camp.
Mike Garafolo adds the injury happened while Williams was doing on-field work at the Jets’ facility.
Williams, 23, was selected by the Jets with the No. 3 overall pick out of Alabama in the 2019 NFL Draft. He signed a four-year, $32,529,380 rookie contract that includes $21,677,732 signing bonus.
His contract also includes a fifth-year option for the Jets to potentially pick up.
In 2020, Williams appeared in 13 games for the Jets and recorded 55 tackles, seven sacks, two forced fumbles and three pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 15 interior defender out of 131 qualifying players.
