Former Ohio State and current Alabama wide receiver Jameson Williams suffered a non-contact left knee injury in the second quarter of Monday evening’s College Football Playoff National Championship against Georgia.
The former four-star prospect from St. Louis caught a 40-yard pass on the Crimson Tide’s first drive of the second quarter but fell awkwardly to the turf at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis as he attempted to avoid a tackle.
Williams was helped off the field and into the medical tent by Alabama’s training staff, at which time ESPN sideline reporter Holly Rowe said he was unable to put any weight on his leg. He then walked to the locker room under his own power, where he’ll be evaluated further.
Williams – who transferred from Ohio State to Alabama last May – was one of three finalists for this year’s Biletnikoff Award, as he caught 75 passes for 1,507 yards and 15 touchdowns heading into tonight’s game. He had four catches for 65 yards before the injury.
