Washington expects Williams to miss rest of season

TIM BOOTH, AP Sports Writer

SEATTLE (AP) — Washington wide receiver Kasen Williams is expected to miss the rest of the regular season and will undergo surgery on Tuesday to repair a fracture in his lower left leg and an injury to his left foot.

Washington coach Steve Sarkisian said Monday that Williams was scheduled for an MRI later in the day but a timeline on how long Williams will be out won’t be known until after the surgery.

Williams was injured in the first half of Saturday’s 41-17 win over California. Williams attempted to adjust to an underthrown pass and had his left leg pinned underneath the defensive back as he came down.

Williams was Washington’s leading receiver last season but he had been less of a factor in the Huskies offense this year.
