Former Notre Dame Fighting Irish star Kyren Williams had his dream season hit the brakes quite hard as he’ll spend some time on the IL.
Just one week after Kyren Williams seemingly announced his present to the NFL with authority, he’s on the shelf. The former Notre Dame Figthing Irish star was placed on the IR on Saturday.
The ankle injury occurred during Williams’ career-best performance against the Arizona Cardinals and he missed every practice of the week. It was a given that the Rams would be without him against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The trip to the IR means that he’ll miss at least the next four weeks. It also halts a dream season for the ex-Golden Domer, who was starting to look like one of the better backs in the NFL.
Williams rushed 20 times for 158 yards and a touchdown in a 26–9 win over the Cardinals but left the game early with an ankle injury, and his status was immediately put in doubt. Now we know he’s going to miss some time.
