  • Leonard Williams Returns To Action

    New York Giants defensive end Leonard Williams (knee) has returned to Thursday's game against the Dallas Cowboys. The stud pass rusher exited during the third quarter due to an undisclosed knee issue. It seems like Williams was dealing with cramps or a minor injury.

  • Leonard Williams Heads To The Locker Room

    New York Giants defensive end Leonard Williams (knee) was forced to exit early during Thursday's game against the Dallas Cowboys. The 28-year-old exited with the medical staff due to an undisclosed injury. It sounds like it could've been a cramp, so hopefully he won't miss the rest of the game. This will certainly be a blow to the Giants defense.

  • Wan'Dale Robinson, Leonard Williams Active Sunday

    New York Giants wide receiver Wan'Dale Robinson (knee) and defensive lineman Leonard Williams (knee) are both active for Week 6 against the Baltimore Ravens. Robinson, a rookie, will play for the first time since Week 1 when he caught one pass for five yards. His return is huge for a Giants team that has been destroyed by injuries at the wide receiver position. Meanwhile, the return of Williams, who hasn't played since Week 2, will solidify the Giants' efforts to slow down Lamar Jackson and the Ravens' fast-paced offense.

  • Leonard Williams Likely To Suit Up In Week 6

    New York Giants defensive end Leonard Williams (knee) is expected to play in Sunday's Week 6 matchup against the Baltimore Ravens.

He finished with 81 tackles and 6.5 sacks through 17 games last season. The Giants defense will get a major boost with Williams back in the mix for this contest.

    New York Giants defensive lineman Leonard Williams (knee) is officially inactive for Week 4 against the Chicago Bears.

  • Leonard Williams Doubtful For Week 3

    New York Giants defensive lineman Leonard Williams (knee) is officially listed as doubtful for Week 3 against the Dallas Cowboys, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. The 28-year-old suffered an MCL sprain last Sunday and will now have to wait at least one week before returning to game action. As a result, Nick Williams finds himself positioned to see increased snaps.

  • Leonard Williams Suffers Sprained MCL

    New York Giants defensive tackle Leonard Williams (knee) suffered a sprained MCL in the Week 2 win over the Carolina Panthers, according to a source. Williams might miss some time, but it's not expected to be much. Head coach Brian Daboll said Williams' injury was "better than it could be." The 28-year-old is considered day-to-day, but he'll be questionable, at best, to suit up on Monday night in Week 3 against the Dallas Cowboys, making him extremely risky in IDP leagues at the defensive line position this week. In the first two weeks of the 2022 season, Williams has seven tackles (five solo). In the season-opening win over the Tennessee Titans, he played 82 percent of the defensive snaps.

  • Leonard Williams Ruled Out Sunday

    New York Giants defensive lineman Leonard Williams (knee) suffered a knee injury and has been ruled out for the remainder of Week 2 against the Cleveland Browns. He managed to log two tackles before exiting early. According to the Giants' depth chart, Nick Williams is the next man up at the defensive tackle position. Leonard Williams totaled 6.5 sacks and two forced fumbles last season, so Giants fans will hope that his injury isn't too serious and he can return to the field in Week 3.

  • Leonard Williams Expects To Be Ready For Week 1

    New York Giants defensive end Leonard Williams (arm) is wearing a bulky brace on his left arm for an undisclosed injury, but he said he'll be ready to go for the Week 1 regular season opener against the Tennessee Titans. The arm issue is the reason why he was limited in training camp this summer. The 28-year-old former first-round pass-rusher also dealt with a triceps injury in 2021, but he still managed to play 17 games. When healthy, Williams is a top-10 defensive lineman in IDP fantasy leagues. Williams was a Pro Bowler back in 2016 with the New York Jets, and he had a career-high 11.5 sacks in 16 games in his first full season for the G-Men in 2020. Last year, he racked up a career-high 81 tackles (34 solo), five tackles for loss, 14 QB hits, 6.5 sacks and two forced fumbles.
