Jameson Williams Injury Update: Alabama WR Leaving National Championship vs. Georgia with a knee injury

Alabama wide receiver Jameson Williams had to help off the field in Monday’s second quarter of the Tide National Championship against Georgia.

Williams caught a deep pass in the middle of Bryce Young, but after making a pass that went 40 yards to Georgia’s 35-yard line, he turned awkwardly. After hitting the lawn, he immediately reached his left knee and could not put any strain on his leg while walking to the side line.

Williams was eventually able to walk from the medical tent to the locker room in Alabama.
