According to Adam Schefter, Williams suffered a torn ACL against Georgia, but he’s expected to make a full recovery after getting surgery in the near future.

Schefter’s report matches up with what Nick Saban told Kirby Smart following the game. The seven-time national champ was picked up on camera speculating Williams injured his ACL.

This is obviously a tough blow for Williams. Nobody wants to see anyone get hurt, especially in the national title game.

You never want to see anyone go down in this fashion. I don’t care who you cheer for. It’s never a good thing.

Now, Williams will have a long road to recovery ahead of him. I’d guess he’s still headed to the NFL, but you probably won’t see him on the field for at least the first couple months of the season.

He’s a major prospect, and I’d still expect him to go in the first round, but having a torn ACL will certainly give some teams pause.

Let’s all hope Williams is able to bounce back in a major way. He’s a hell of a player, and you never want to see a guy like him go down.
