The bad news is the report about a broken foot but he should be healed in time for training camp later in July.
#Jets DL Quinnen Williams broke a small bone in his foot and likely will have surgery that’ll sideline him 8-10 weeks, sources tell me and @MikeGarafolo. That means no OTAs or minicamp for Williams, but he should be healthy in time for training camp.

Here are some additional details courtesy of the AP.
New York Jets standout defensive lineman Quinnen Williams broke a bone in a foot and is expected to have surgery and be sidelined eight to 10 weeks, according to a person with knowledge of the injury.
Williams was hurt last week during on-field workouts at the team’s facility in Florham Park, New Jersey, the person told The Associated Press on Tuesday on condition of anonymity because the Jets didn’t announce the injury.
NFL Network first reported Williams’ injury. He is expected to miss organized team activities and minicamp, but should be healthy in time for the start of training camp in late July.
The 23-year-old Williams had a breakout second NFL season as one of the team’s few standouts during a miserable 2-14 campaign. The No. 3 overall draft pick in 2019 led the Jets with seven sacks, 14 quarterback hits and 10 tackles for losses to go along with 55 total tackles and two forced fumbles. He missed the final two games with a concussion and neck injury.
