Alabama receiver Jameson Williams had to be helped to get out of the second round of Tide’s international tournament against Georgia on Monday.
Williams passed through the middle of Bryce Young but turned hard to make the party, which took 40 yards to the Georgia 35-yard line. He immediately reached for his left knee and hit the curtain, and was unable to lift his leg while walking sideways.
Williams was later able to walk alone from the hospital tent to the Alabama room.
ESPN’s Holly Rowe said in the third quarter that Williams would not be back in the game.
If Williams is unable to return to the game, Crimson Tide will be without controversy as their main player in the case outside Young. Williams was the last Biletnikoff Award winner after pulling 75 passes for 1,507 yards and 15 touchdowns in 2021. His yards he received were the fifth among FBS recipients while his touchdowns were third.
Crimson Tide lost the second leading receiver in the SEC competition when John Metchie tore his ACL. Metchie had 1,142 yards of reception at 96 reception and eight touchdowns.
After Williams and Metchie, no other receiver in the team had more than 400 yards of receiver. Slade Bolden was third on the team with 364 yards, while finalist Cameron Latu was third with seven touchdowns.
Williams’ injury comes just three months before the NFL Draft, with Williams expected to be one of the team’s top receivers. Sports News Williams is currently named the No. 14 player in the class.
