Alabama WR Jameson Williams tore his ACL in title game

The knee injury sustained by Alabama wide receiver Jameson Williams during the College Football National Playoffs was discovered on Tuesday as an ACL tear, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Williams, who was screened as the top receiver in the 2022 NFL Draft, fell ahead of contact with a Georgia defenseman on Monday night after hitting a 40-yard pass down midfield. After being helped on the sidelines and checked in the medical tent, Williams made his way to the locker room on his own.

He did not return to the game, although Alabama coach Nick Saban said Williams wanted to return.

“He actually wanted to play in the second half and the medics wouldn’t let him, which I think was smart because he has a future as a football player,” Saban said at a post-match press conference.

Williams began his college career with the Ohio State Buckeyes and transferred to Alabama after his second season. In his first year with the Crimson Tide, Williams caught 79 passes for 1,572 yards and 15 touchdowns. He also returned two kickoffs for touchdowns.
