Jets DT Quinnen Williams, WR Corey Davis exit loss with injuries

ORCHARD PARK, NY – New York Jets defensive tackle Quinnen Williams, in the middle of a career year, injured his left calf in the second quarter and did not return to Sunday’s 20-12 loss to the Buffalo Bills.

After the game, Jets coach Robert Saleh said Williams is being looked at day to day and hopes his star defensive tackle can play next week against the Detroit Lions.

Williams was injured on a non-contact play with 8:24 left in the quarter. He got up and started to walk on his own but stopped abruptly to grab his left leg. After several minutes in the medical tent, he limped into the locker room and was eventually kicked out.

The Jets also lost starting receiver Corey Davis to a game-ending concussion in the first quarter. He was hit on a third reception in the middle. Denzel Mims replaced him.

Williams had a dominant game at the time of the injury. He’s already had two sacks, his 10th and 11th of the season, to become the first Jets player since Muhammad Wilkerson in 2015 (12.5 sacks) to have double-digit sacks in a season.

The Jets have made a dramatic improvement on defense this season, and one of the big reasons is Williams, the third overall pick in 2019. The Jets have plenty of depth on their defensive line, but they don’t have anyone of the caliber of Williams. . He often draws two blockers, creating one-on-one matchups for his teammates.
