Jonah Williams Suffered Dislocated Kneecap in Playoff Win over Baltimore
Cincinnati Bengals left tackle Jonah Williams left Sunday night’s playoff win over the Baltimore Ravens in the first half with a knee injury, and some details of that injury have finally been revealed.
The former Alabama offensive lineman suffered a dislocated kneecap, and did not return for the remainder of the game.
According to NFL analyst Ian Rapaport, Williams will undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the extent of the damage.
Williams is the only returning starter from the Bengals’ offensive line last season as their focus shifted to protecting star quarterback Joe Burrow. Although sporting a new and improved offensive line going into this season, Burrow was still sacked the sixth-most in the league, going down 41 times.
Additionally, Williams has had his fair share of struggles this season. He’s been credited for allowing 12 sacks, tied for the most given up by an offensive lineman this season according to Pro Football Focus.
Now, with the injury to Williams, combined with already losing guard Alex Cappa and right tackle La’el Collins with other injuries, the Bengals could be without three of their starting offensive linemen going into their divisional round match against the Buffalo Bills.
