Bengals First-Round Pick OT Jonah Williams Likely Done for 2019

The Bengals have likely lost first-round pick Jonah Williams for the entire 2019 season.

The team announced Tuesday that the rookie offensive tackle had left shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum.

“Williams likely will miss the 2019 season, but is expected to make a full recovery,” the Bengals said.

Williams joined the Bengals as the No. 11 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. The Alabama product was expected to begin the season as the Bengals’ starting left tackle, before picking up the shoulder injury during OTAs.

He sat out during minicamp due to the injury.

“We look forward to Jonah being a major contributor in the future, and know that he won’t let this injury deter him from still being an important part of this team,” Bengals coach Zac Taylor said.

“We’re confident in our offensive line personnel as we head into training camp, and we believe they can do their part in helping this team achieve its goals.”
