Perhaps the biggest piece of bad news to come out the New York Jets 28-18 victory over the Giants was Leonard Williams and his knee.

1authorrob3 - New York Jets' Leonard Williams Avoids Serious Knee DamageRyan Fitzpatrick, Eric Decker, Brandon Marshall, Chris Ivory, and the rest of the New York Jets offense looked fantastic Saturday night in their 28-18 victory over the New York Giants.

The defense too, looks great. Smiles were spread throughout the sidelines due to their splendid play.

That was, until, rookie beast of a No. 6 overall draft pick Leonard Williams was forced to leave the game due to an apparent knee injury.

Luckily, the tests came back positive on the kid.

On Sunday morning the Jets received word that there is no ligament damage in the knee. It’s simply a muscle strain behind the knee.

What’s amazing is how stacked this defensive line looked once Williams was drafted last spring. But due to Sheldon Richardson’s off-the-field issues and Muhammad Wilkerson’s troublesome hammy, Williams has stepped into the role as No. 1 guy for the moment.

The Jets can now breathe a huge sigh of relief after this epic scare.
