Jets DE Leonard Williams left Saturday night's game early with a knee injury. The fact that the team deemed him "questionable" to return tells us it's not serious. We'll see what the full diagnosis says, though. Williams faces big opportunity given DE Sheldon Richardson's uncertain situation. Richardson will already miss the 1st 4 games because of a drug suspension and might yet face further discipline thanks to a July arrest.
UPDATE: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Jets have deemed Williams' injury a bone bruise. That would seem to put him in line to play in the regular-season opener.
Giants DL Leonard Williams (triceps) and Austin Johnson (foot) are active for today's game against the Cowboys. Both starters entered the day questionable. Johnson looks iffier than Williams, as he managed only 1 limited practice this week on his injured foot.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Giants DE Leonard Williams is "going to miss time" with an elbow injury "feared to be significant." We'll see about the official diagnosis. With just 4 weeks left in the regular season, an IR trip would effectively end Williams' year.
Giants DE Leonard Williams left Sunday's loss to the Chargers with a right elbow injury. We'll see about his status heading into next Sunday's home date with Dallas.
The Giants wasted little time in giving their franchise player a longer-term contract. The 2 sides have agreed to a 3-year pact worth $63 million, with $45 million fully guaranteed, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. That contract would carry Williams through his age-29 season.
The Giants have applied the franchise tag to DE Leonard Williams, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's an unsurprising move after Williams posted 11.5 sacks in his 1st full year with the team. That beat his previous season high by 4.5 and ranked him 7th in the league. Williams turns 27 in June and looks like a good candidate for a long-term deal with the Giants.
