Quinnen Williams is anticipated to be out eight to 10 weeks after breaking a small bone in his foot that can probably require the Jets defensive lineman to bear surgical procedure.
According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero and Mike Garafolo, Williams will most likely miss OTAs and minicamp, however on the present timeline, he needs to be able to go by coaching camp, which begins on July 28.
Williams was taken with the third choose by the Jets within the 2019 draft, and in two seasons, he has already proved to be a pure disruptor and playmaker on protection. Final season, the defensive sort out had seven sacks in 13 video games and established himself as one of many foundational items of an in any other case underwhelming protection.
New head coach Robert Saleh, who was the 49ers’ defensive coordinator earlier than heading to New York, not too long ago spoke about his pleasure for attending to work with the 23-year-old this upcoming season.
“I completely love Quinnen,” Saleh said. “Actually excited to get the seat belt off of his harness and let him go. On this scheme, to get him going vertical, to get all that mass transferring within the course that he must go, I am actually excited concerning the potential that he’ll have.”
