Well this explains why they drafted a TE. From the sound so it, it looks like Williams could possibly end up on the shelf going into the regular season and may end up being a released injury settlement if his injury doesn't respond and heal to the point where he can play unless they place him on IR and I wonder if they would be allowed to do that if he is on the regular season PUP list.
Williams has a history of ankle and knee injuries.
2016 - knee injury which required surgery to remove cartilage IR for season. Missed 12 games.
2017 - injury to his left ankle missed 5 games
2020 - ankle injury missed 7 games
2021 - torn ACL in Week 5, placed on IR. Missed 12 games.
