The Bengals announced Tuesday that Williams is expected to make a full recovery from the surgery, which repaired a torn labrum in his left shoulder. He was expected to be their starting left tackle.
"We look forward to Jonah being a major contributor in the future, and know that he won't let this injury deter him from still being an important part of this team," Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said in a statement. "We're confident in our offensive line personnel as we head into training camp, and we believe they can do their part in helping this team achieve its goals."
Jonah Williams, the Bengals' top pick in the draft, likely will miss the 2019 season after having shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum. The team said he's expected to make a full recovery.
