The initial report from Pelissero that was shared three days ago stated that Williams was expected to be out for somewhere from 8-10 weeks, but today’s report states that the “Average recovery is 10-12 weeks and they’ll [the Jets] be cautious.” We’ll have to wait and see exactly how long this injury will take to heal, but the consensus seems to be that Williams will be ready for training camp, as confirmed by Robert Saleh in his press conference with the media on Friday morning.
