Brandon Williams Injury Is Not Long-Term, Won't Require Surgery

DT Brandon Williams

Head Coach John Harbaugh didn't elaborate on the nature of Brandon Williams' knee injury, but did share the good news.

It does not look like Williams will have an extended absence.

"I think we'll see this week. It's not a long-term injury for sure," Harbaugh said Monday. "It's not going to be a surgery or anything like that. I don't even know if I want to categorize it because it's just something he has to deal with."

Williams was surprisingly added to the injury report Saturday and didn't play in the Ravens' 40-25 loss to the Cleveland Browns a day later. It was just the fifth game he's missed over the past six seasons.

Although it wasn't the only reason for the Ravens' struggles, Williams' absence hurt Baltimore's run defense, which yielded 165 rushing yards and three touchdowns to Browns running back Nick Chubb.

Harbaugh also said the good news is that the Ravens came out of the Browns game "really pretty darn healthy," including tight end Mark Andrews, who has been dealing with a foot injury.

"It's not like we came out of this thing and lost and got beat up. We didn't," Harbaugh said.
