Ravens safety Marcus Williams will miss ‘a significant amount of time’ after dislocating wrist vs. Bengals

Ravens safety Marcus Williams suffered a dislocated wrist during Sunday night’s 19-17 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals and will miss “a significant amount of time,” coach John Harbaugh said.

“We’ll know more tomorrow and through the week,” Harbaugh added.

It’s unclear when Williams’ injury occurred, but he was ruled out at the start of the fourth quarter.

Williams’ injury is huge for Baltimore, as he has been one of the team’s best defensive players thus far this season. Williams is tied for second in the league in interceptions with three and has 33 tackles, five pass deflections and a fumble recovery.

After playing five seasons with the New Orleans Saints, Williams signed a five-year, $70 million contract in March. Williams was a playmaker during his time in New Orleans, as the former second-round draft pick recorded 320 tackles, 38 pass deflections and 15 interceptions in 76 games.

Fortunately for the Ravens, they have depth at safety with veteran Chuck Clark, first-round pick Kyle Hamilton and third-year player Geno Stone. Stone essentially replaced Williams on Sunday, with Hamilton rotating in for different situations.
