Jets CB Williams has sprained MCL
NEW YORK (AP) New York Jets cornerback Marcus Williams has a sprained knee ligament that could keep him out against the Giants next Sunday.
Todd Bowles confirms Monday during a conference call that Williams injured the medial collateral ligament in one of his knees and is ”day to day.”
The Jets coach says there’s a chance he could play, but the team will get a better feel for Williams’ status as the week progresses.
Williams started Sunday in the Jets’ 38-20 win over Miami in place of Darrelle Revis, who is still going through the NFL’s concussion protocol. Bowles says Revis has made ”slight progress,” but it’s too early to tell if he’ll be available.
Williams was injured when he returned an interception, his team-leading fifth of the season, in the first quarter.
