The Jets performed well on the field last night as they beat the Giants 28 – 18 in the Snoopy Bowl. The goal in the preseason is to improve but a big part of that is staying injury free. The Jets had a big concern last night as Leonard Williams suffered a knee injury. Sheldon Richardson is suspended for the 1st four games of the season, so the Jets were counting on Williams to contribute early.
Leonard Williams will have an MRI tomorrow on his knee. Todd Bowles said he doesn't know severity. #nyj

X-Rays on Leonard Williams' knee were negative. Jets think it's just bone bruise and he will be fine but getting MRI done Sunday to be sure.

If Schefter’s report is accurate and this is precautionary that is great news. We won’t speculate beyond those tweets but we will keep you updated. As more information becomes available we will post it. In the meantime be sure to check our New York Jets message board for updates on Leonard Williams.
EDIT: It has been reported that the MRI results were negative.
