K'Waun Williams going on short-term IR

The Denver Broncos are placing DB K'Waun Williams on short-term IR.

Fantasy Impact

Williams was scheduled to have ankle surgery Monday that is reportedly expected to sideline him at least eight weeks. The move to short-term IR will allow the veteran cornerback to return later this season.

K'Waun Williams undergoing ankle surgery Monday

Broncos DB K'Waun Williams is undergoing ankle surgery Monday and is expected to be sidelined six to eight weeks.

Fantasy Impact

The team could decide to hold onto Williams until final cuts Tuesday and place him on injured reserve so he can return once he is healthy. Fantasy managers should expect Essang Bassey to move into the slot corner role with Williams sidelined.

K'Waun Williams expected to sign with Broncos

Per Mike Kaye, cornerback K'Waun Williams is closing in on a two-year, $7 million deal with the Broncos.

Fantasy Impact

Williams was a very solid nickel cornerback for the 49ers in his five year stint with the team. In 14 games last season, the 30-year-old recorded one interception, one forced fumble, four passes defended, one sack, and five tackles for loss in 14 games. The Broncos are building a very balanced and talented defense heading into the 2022 season.

K'Waun Williams re-signs with 49ers

The 49ers are bringing back K'Waun Williams on a one-year deal. The versatile cornerback visited with the Chiefs but ultimately returns to San Francisco.

Fantasy Impact

The 29-year-old appeared in just eight games (four starts) last season but has otherwise been a reliable presence in the San Francisco secondary. In 2020 alone, he made 22 tackles and recorded a career-high two sacks. Over six years in the NFL (77 games) between Cleveland and San Francisco, he has intercepted three passes, recorded six sacks, and made 249 tackles.

K'Waun Williams (ACL) has rare sprain, will miss time

San Francisco 49ers CB K'Waun Williams has a somewhat rare ACL sprain and will miss several weeks.

Fantasy Impact

The good news is that Williams will not need surgery. The bad news is that he's likely to miss a few weeks and could be a candidate for short-term IR. The 49ers secondary is thin due to injuries but is still a top-6 scoring D/ST. Richard Sherman is eligible to return Week 5, but his status is still uncertain. Fantasy managers can roll out the San Francisco D/ST with confidence this Sunday against the Dolphins.
