The New York Jets’ star defensive tackle has suffered a broken foot, but should be healthy in time for training camp.

According to Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, New York Jets defensive tackle Quinnen Williams has broken a small bone in his foot and will be sidelined for 8-10 weeks.

The 8-10 week timetable puts Williams on track to return somewhere from late-June to mid-July. NFL training camps typically begin in mid-July.

NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reports that the injury happened last week during on-field work at the Jets’ facility.

Williams, 23, is coming off of a breakout second season for the Jets. He led all interior defensive linemen with 2.2 run stops per game and also thrived as a pass rusher, ranking 12th at the position in pressures per game (3.0). He finished the year on a rampage as he averaged 4.4 pressures per game over his final seven appearances, trailing only Aaron Donald over that span.

The Alabama product spearheads a Jets defensive line that is loaded with talent, especially in the pass-rushing department.

Durability is becoming somewhat of an issue for the former third overall pick. Williams missed three games in each of his first two seasons, missing games over two separate stints in both seasons. In 2019, he missed two games early in the season with an ankle injury and one later in the year with a neck injury. In 2020, he missed a game in the middle of the year with a hamstring injury and finished the season on injured reserve as he missed the final two games with another neck injury.
