Ravens Need Williams Now More Than Ever
Prior to Baltimore’s Week 4 game against the Cleveland Browns, Williams is rated as questionable. He had a pectoral injury in Week 1’s victory over the Houston Texans, which is the condition in question.
Williams’ season might have been over if he had chosen to have surgery to fix the damage. The choice of whether to have the operation or continue playing was ultimately up to the safety.
In order to play again this season, the 27-year-old safety made the decision to forgo the operation. Williams could be of assistance to the Ravens given the number of injured players on their roster at the moment.
In just 10 games the previous year, he tied his career high for interceptions with four. Due to a fractured wrist he sustained throughout the season, his year was cut short.
When Baltimore travels to face Cleveland on October 1 at 1 p.m., they will ideally have Williams available. The AFC North’s top spot will either be tied for by the game’s winner or be his alone.
