Broncos cornerback K’Waun Williams will undergo left ankle surgery on Monday, league sources told The Post.
Williams missed most of training camp and all three preseason games. According to league sources, his recovery process is expected to take six to eight weeks.
The ninth-year veteran is entering his second season with the Broncos after signing as a free agent in March. In 2022, Williams has played in 14 games (eight starts), totaling 44 tackles, one sack and seven passes defended.
The Denver high school battled injuries throughout training camp. Rookie Riley Moss underwent surgery to treat a muscle injury early in camp, while safety PJ Locke is recovering from an ankle injury.
With Williams most likely headed to the injured reserve list, cornerback Essang Bassey could take his place. Bassey was one of the bright stars in the preseason games, recording three interceptions in three games. He also has the versatility to line up as a cornerback and safety.
