Good morning, GGN! Jets players are dropping like flies. Quinnen Williams is done for the year. Ryan Griffin is on the COVID Reserve List. Harvey Langi is done for the year. The hits just keep on coming. The loss of Williams for the final two games is the headliner. Williams had a tremendous second season, and he probably deserved to be named to the Pro Bowl. But Pro Bowl berths tend to operate with a one year lag. Guys tend to deserve a Pro Bowl nod a year before they make the team, and on the other end guys tend to get their final Pro Bowl nod a year after the last year their play merits it. Whatcha gonna do?

Williams would have been a key player in any bid for an upset of the Browns on Sunday. Williams being out makes a Jets win that much tougher. For those still rooting for the Jets to win, Williams’ injury is a tough pill to swallow. For those in full tank mode, Williams’ misfortune is your good fortune.
