Jets activate DL Quinnen Williams from PUP list

The New York Jets activated defensive lineman Quinnen Williams from the physically unable to perform list on Monday.

Williams underwent surgery on May 6 to repair a broken bone in his foot. According to local media reports, he had light participation in training camp on Monday, and it’s unknown whether he will play Saturday when the Jets travel to Green Bay for their second of three preseason games.

Williams, a 2019 first-round pick (third overall), broke a small bone in his foot working out this spring at the Jets’ facility, necessitating the surgery.

A 23-year-old Alabama alum, Williams made 13 starts last season and recorded 55 tackles and a team-high seven sacks. His career totals include 83 tackles, 9 1/2 sacks, 20 quarterback hits, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery in 26 games (22 starts).

Jets’ DL Williams to miss final two games of season

New York Jets defensive lineman Quinnen Williams will miss the final two games of the season with a neck injury and a concussion, coach Adam Gase said Wednesday.

The 23-year-old is expected to be placed on injured reserve.

Williams, in his second season, was a bright spot for the Jets (1-13) in an otherwise dismal season. The No. 3 overall pick in the 2019 NHL Draft, Williams has seven sacks, 55 tackles (10 for loss), 14 quarterback hits and two forced fumbles.

He left Sunday’s 23-20 win against the Los Angeles Rams with a head injury after he took a teammate’s knee to his helmet.

Darnold, Williams inactive for Jets vs. Patriots

Quarterback Sam Darnold and defensive lineman Quinnen Williams were among the New York Jets players listed as inactive before Monday night’s home game against the New England Patriots. Both were listed as doubtful on the most recent injury report.

Darnold left the Oct. 1 game when he was sacked in the first quarter by Denver Broncos linebacker Alexander Johnson. Darnold soon returned to the game and played the rest of the way of the Jets’ 37-28 loss. The injury was later diagnosed as a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder and he missed the next two games.

He came back to play the past two weeks, but discomfort in the shoulder this week cost him practice time and he was listed as doubtful approaching the Monday game.

In his place, veteran Joe Flacco will make his third start of the season. The 13-year veteran needs just 88 passing yards to move past Hall of Famer Joe Montana (40,551) for 20th place on the NFL’s all-time leaderboard.

Darnold has completed 58.6 percent of his passes for 1,045 yards with three touchdowns and six interceptions in six games. Flacco has connected on 51.9 percent of his pass attempts for 397 yards with one score and one pick in three games.

Williams, the Jets’ first-round pick (third overall) in the 2019 draft out of Alabama, has 5 1/2 sacks in 21 games over two seasons, including three sacks in eight games this season

He suffered a hamstring injury in New York’s 35-9 loss at Kansas City on Nov. 1.

The Jets (0-8) are the NFL’s only winless team as take on the Patriots (2-5) in East Rutherford, N.J.

Jets DT Williams cleared of two felony gun charges

Jets defensive tackle Quinnen Williams was cleared of two felony gun charges stemming from a March arrest at New York’s LaGuardia Airport, multiple media outlets reported on Monday.

“As we said from the outset, this matter has been resolved with no criminal charges,” attorney Alex Spiro said in a statement. “This case was nothing more than a technical issue with the storing of a firearm, which is why the government gave Mr. Williams nothing more than a ticket.”

Williams, 22, was carrying a Glock 19 pistol in a carry-on bag when he was arrested March 5.

The gun was licensed in Alabama and not in New York, which doesn’t recognize issuances from other states.

Williams has recorded 16 tackles, two sacks and one forced fumble this season. He has collected 44 tackles and 4.5 sacks in 17 career games since being drafted third overall by the Jets in 2019.

Williams earned All-American accolades at the University of Alabama, where he won the Outland Trophy as the nation’s best interior lineman.
