Williams’ injury is similar to the one he suffered when the two teams met in Week 5 on Sunday Night Football.

As it turns out, Jonah Williams suffered a dislocated kneecap in the Cincinnati Bengals’ Wild Card victory over the Baltimore Ravens. NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport broke the news Monday.

Ironically, this is the second time Williams has suffered this same injury against Baltimore. When the two teams played in Week 5, also on Sunday Night Football, Williams dislocated his kneecap but was able to play through it after missing a few snaps.

It’s unclear how severe the latest injury is, but if there’s no other damage, there’s a chance he could play again in these NFL Playoffs.

More importantly, this shouldn’t be an injury that keeps Williams sidelined for long in the offseason. After all, next season is the final year of Williams’ contract, so it’s good to see this injury probably won’t linger into offseason workouts or even training camp.


The Cincinnati Bengals have declared Jonah Williams out.

The Cincinnati Bengals offensive line can’t seem to catch a break.

Coming into the NFL Playoffs, Cincinnati had recently lost right tackle La’el Collins and right guard Alex Cappa to injuries. Collins is for sure out for the rest of the season after tearing his ACL, while Cappa is expected to miss the entire postseason due to an ankle injury.

So of course, in the Bengals’ Wild Card matchup with the Baltimore Ravens, another lineman went down with an injury.

This time, it was left tackle Jonah Williams, who was down on the field following Hayden Hurst’s second quarter catch and fumble.

After being examined by trainers on the field, Williams got up and walked to the medical tent without any assistance. Williams would eventually exit the tent and head to the locker room for further testing.

The Bengals have since announced Williams has a knee injury, and his return is questionable.

For now, it looks like Jackson Carman will be the left tackle.

We will update this story as more details come out.
