This Week Outlook
The Bengals have placed T Jonah Williams on injured reserve with a knee injury.
NFL's Ian Rapoport states that Williams is likely done for the remainder of the 2020 season. Williams, an athletic T and former first-round pick out of Alabama, has had trouble staying on the field. The current knee injury follows up a torn labrum that cost him his entire rookie campaign. Hopefully, the extended offseason will help this promising young talent get back on track for 2021.
Bengals OL Jonah Williams (neck) has been ruled out for Week 8 against the Titans.
It's a concern for the fantasy outlook of Joe Burrow, Gio Bernard, and Cincinnati's receivers. The Bengals have had one of the worst offensive lines in football this season and will now be without their starting left tackle.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that Bengals LT Jonah Williams (neck) "may" miss the team's Week 8 matchup versus the Titans.
The team could also be without C Trey Hopkins (concussion) for this one. It's a worrisome development for Joe Burrow as the Bengals already struggled in pass protection.
First-round tackle Jonah Williams will likely miss the 2019 season with a torn labrum in his left shoulder.
Williams was selected No. 11 overall in this year’s draft after a highly successful career at Alabama. He was supposed to provide much-needed protection for Andy Dalton, Joe Mixon, and company, but that will have to wait another year. Williams will likely miss all of 2019 after undergoing shoulder surgery, but he’s expected to make a full recovery. Cordy Glenn could move from guard to tackle to fill in for Williams, while other changes along the offensive line will be necessary moving forward.
The Cincinnati Bengals have selected former Alabama offensive lineman Jonah Williams with the 11th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Williams is one of the best blockers in this year’s draft, and he fills a desperate need for a poor Bengals’ offensive line. He brings durability and versatility to the NFL, as he didn’t miss any of his 44 games with Alabama in three years of action and can play on both sides of the offensive line. Amazingly, he didn’t give up a single sack in 2018.
