It was almost close to a year since Avery Williamson has been on the sidelines after tearing up the ACL in his right knee in a preseason match, which is almost unreasonable, in Atlanta.
The injury, which occurred in the late second quarter of the match, has seen the player on the sideline ever since Williamson was seen to be the only first-team starter on the pitch in the match before seeing a teammate crash on his knee in the end zone. Seeing a fault in his tactics or his terrible loss, Head Coach Adam Gase took the blame for leaving the 28-year-old inside linebacker on the pitch and claimed that he felt awful about it, choiceonlinecasino online casino offered impressive odds regarding the match too.
After seeing C.J Mosley opt out of the 2020 campaign, the New York Jets are now desperate to see Williamson return to the team as soon as possible. Claiming to be over the trauma that came with the ACL injury last year, Williamson told the media he will be fit for the season in the coming weeks.
Speaking via Zoom on Wednesday, Williamson said to media: “At the end of the day, if you hold onto stuff like that it’s just going to eat away at you, I had my moments where I was in some dark places and didn’t want to talk to anybody. I feel like I moved past it and just the fact that I’m running and able to move and closer to being on the field, that’s the happiness that I want to have.”
Despite being on the “physically unable to perform” list, the Jets are expecting the 28-year-old inside linebacker to be cleared in training camp and be fit to play in Week 1. As expected, Williamson is not the only one agitated about his return to the team or the pitch as his coach Adam Gase is also immensely excited and with several online gambling websites available for fans to place odds on the upcoming matches to be played.
Speaking in a Wednesday conference about Williamson’s injury, Gase said: “It’s one that I take a lot of responsibility on, I was kind of kicking myself thinking, ‘He should have never been on the field. This should have never happened. We should have had him for the season.’
“He was great about it. He knew how I felt about it. He focused on getting better. I know he’s excited about getting out there. I’m going to be extremely excited to see him going again and see where he’s at. I just want to see him get in pads and just be able to start playing football again. That’s going to be a good day for me personally. I know for him it will be a great day.”
