The New York Jets - and their anxious fans - can exhale. An MRI exam Sunday revealed that rookie defensive lineman Leonard Williams has a muscle strain behind one of his knees, and the team avoided a potentially devastating injury to its first-round draft pick. Williams got hurt in the first half of the Jets' 28-18 preseason victory over the Giants on Saturday night.
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- The New York Jets have released 12 players, including five wide receivers, reducing their roster to 78 a day after defeating the Giants 28-18.
The New York Jets are hoping Leonard Williams won't be sidelined for long with a knee injury. The first-round draft pick left the Jets' 28-18 preseason victory over the Giants in the first half Saturday night. A bone bruise is a possibility, but the Jets will know more after the defensive lineman has an MRI exam Sunday.
The Jets not only won the New York-area preseason bragging rights, they showed they're a lot closer to being ready for the regular season than the Giants. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick threw two touchdown passes and Antonio Cromartie scored on a 59-yard interception return in the waning seconds of the first half in the Jets' 28-18 win Saturday night. ''We have a ways to go, and we know we have our work cut out for us, but the guys are starting to gel and we did some good things,'' Jets coach Todd Bowles said.
Washington Redskins Pro Bowl left tackle Trent Williams agreed to a five-year, $66 million contract extension, according to multiple reports Saturday. The deal makes Williams the highest-paid offensive tackle in NFL history. Williams will receive $43.25 million in guarantees and $32 million at signing, and will average $13.2 million per year.
