Report: Alabama WR Jameson Williams to require surgery on injured knee
Alabama lost to Georgia in Monday’s national championship. One of the storylines from that game was the injury count piling up for the Crimson Tide.
Already down a key receiver in John Metchie, Alabama lost Jameson Williams in the first half. Williams already had 4 catches for 65 yards at the time of his injury.
Prior to his injury, Williams was expected to be the top WR taken off the board in the 2022 NFL Draft. Now, that might take a bit of a hit.
According to NFL insider Adam Schefter, Williams sustained a tear of his ACL and will require surgery. Fortunately, the early prognosis is that Williams should be able to make a full recovery and regain his 4.3 speed.
