Alabama’s Jameson Williams, the projected top wide receiver in the 2022 NFL Draft, suffered a torn ACL in his left knee in the College Football Playoff title game, ESPN reported Tuesday.
He’s expected to have surgery within the next 10 days and make a full recovery and retain his sub-4.3 speed, per the report.
Williams suffered the non-contact injury in the second quarter of the 33-18 loss to Georgia and did not return. He returned to the sideline in the second half without his pads on.
Williams had four receptions for 65 yards prior to the injury to increase his season numbers to 79 receptions and 1,572 yards. He finished with 15 touchdown receptions on the season.
