Kasen Williams has successful surgery, out 2-4 months

Washington coach Steve Sarkisian said after Wednesday’s practice that receiver Kasen Williams had successful surgery Wednesday on the broken fibula in his left leg, as well as a damaged ligament in his foot.

Sarkisian said he expects Williams to miss somewhere between 2-4 months, though he said a more specific timetable will likely emerge as the healing process takes place.

“They took care of what needed to get taken care of on his leg,” Sarkisian said. “I think it is what it is. We’re probably looking at realistically a couple two, three months before he’s back on the field, which is kind of what we expected. We won’t rush it. We’ll get him completely healthy and get him back going for us.” Read more »
