Williams out 2-4 months for Washington

SEATTLE (AP) — Washington wide receiver Kasen Williams will be sidelined up to four months after surgery to repair a broken bone in his lower left leg and an injury to his foot.

Washington coach Steve Sarkisian announced the timeline on Williams after practice on Wednesday.

Williams was injured in the second quarter of Washington’s 41-17 win over California last Saturday. Williams underwent surgery on Tuesday and Sarkisian said the expectation is the recovery will be between two and four months.

A more specific timeline will emerge during his recovery, Sarkisian said.

Williams had 29 catches for 321 yards and one touchdown before getting injured. He led Washington in receiving a year ago with 77 receptions for 878 yards and six touchdowns.
