Many were excited about William ‘s potential in 2022 as he potentially took over the backfield from Melvin Gordon, and a newly high-powered offense led by Russell Wilson. Well, we know how that ended. Unfortunately, Williams suffered a significant knee injury in Week 4 to his right knee, including a torn ACL, LCL, and posterior lateral corner. This is a very significant version of an ACL tear, and up there with JK Dobbins’. The problem with the severity of this tear is that it usually takes at least 12 months, sometimes up to 14 months to fully return to play. Even then the player usually doesn’t fully trust his knee until the following season. I fully expect him to miss games early in the season, possibly starting on the PUP. It’ll be interesting to see who the apick up to supplement their backfield, possibly even considering drafting one of the many talented rookies.
