After being drafted early in the first round with the idea of being the blindside for Bengals’ QB Andy Dalton, news broke today that the talented rookie had surgery today to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder.
Bengals announced that rookie OT Jonah Williams had left shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum. Williams likely will miss the 2019 season, but is expected to make a full recovery.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) June 25, 2019
What does that mean for the Bengals offensive line this season?
Losing first-round pick Jonah Williams to a likely season-ending torn labrum will shake up Bengals’ offensive line. Cordy Glenn – who was projected as starting left guard – now could move back to left tackle and recently-signed left guard John Jerry could become new starter.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) June 25, 2019
Dalton for his part missed 5 games last year due to injury, and was the main beneficiary of the Williams pick. Another Dalton injury could lead to new coach Zac Taylor drafting his handpicked replacement.
