Javonte Williams, a running back for the Denver Broncos, may have seriously hurt his knee in Sunday’s defeat to the Las Vegas Raiders, according to NFL Network Insider. Williams would get an MRI on Monday to establish the full extent of the injuries, despite Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett saying he had no update on Williams’ condition following the game.
However, there isn’t much hope that the outcomes will be good. On the opening play of the third quarter on Sunday, Williams was carried off after losing a yard. He was unable to put any weight on the knee and spent some time in the medical tent before leaving and being declared ineligible for the game in the locker room. Williams, who had accumulated 176 yards in three games before the contest, was the leading rusher for the Broncos. On Sunday, he ran 10 times for 28 yards.
