New York Jets defensive tackle Quinnen Williams has undergone successful surgery and should be back in time for training camp.

After suffering a broken bone in his foot at the New York Jets‘ facility a few days ago, Quinnen Williams has undergone successful surgery according to Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network.

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.

Saleh added that he believed the injury could have been worse and that the timing was good.

The announcement of Williams’ successful surgery comes on the same day that the Jets will kick off their rookie minicamp, as their first practice begins this afternoon at 12:30 p.m. Eastern in Florham Park, NJ. Zach Wilson, Alijah Vera-Tucker, Elijah Moore, Michael Carter, and more will make their first on-field appearances in Jets gear.
