Ya, Williams just tweeted he is out for the year.

Looks like he tore it. Jenkin's got to step up.

damn, loved his speed and his hands as a WR.
Next men up.

Activate the rookies!
Man, that is bad news for KW's career. Good thing he has a rich family.

Jenkins, welcome aboard. Better be ready. This team is playing for it all.
As much as i hate KW, he has played valiantly this year and has provided a spark as a #3 or #4 WR.

His only mistake that i can recall was a near fumble but he fought with all his might to recover it.

He got his knee shredded trying to block a MLB. He def has heart. Get well soon.

Why is it bad for his career? KW, once healthy, will have a long career in this league. Will he ever make the huge contract? Probably not, but he will be a guy that will be signed and make decent money for at least the next 5 - 6 years.
in all honesty, we have the playmakers, his lost isn't that big of a blow to us. if it was manningham or crabs then yea id be more mad, just need ginn to hold onto the ball
Damn... we need all the receiver help we can get. He was doing some good things too

That's why Williams' injury is a big deal. It significantly shrinks our returner depth.

IIRC, our PR / KR depth was:

Ginn
Williams (out)
Hunter (out)
James

It necessitates activating James and probably Jenkins as well. Good luck rookies!

Dix and Cox has had some return reps in preseason

I want to see the rooks play if there's a silver lining.
Feel terrible for KW, but what a testament to this team that they can sustain two key offensive injuries and backfill those players with 1st and 2nd round talent.

He will? His game is based off of explosiveness and speed. This is a major blow and the odds are against him. Also, he was a fourth WR. Not like he was a starter and had a rep around the league. Most 4th WRs in the NFL are done after an injury like this. If he makes it back and succeeds he will be defying the odds. Hope he does. I'm sure he wanted some redemption this year.

There are a lot of young fast guys that are healthy out there. That is why the average NFL career is about three years.
What's up with the boy Hunter?
