Mike Williams Injury: Bucs receiver has partially torn hamstring, could miss several weeks

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Mike Williams' injury is more serious than previously disclosed.

According to Ira Kaufman of the Tampa Tribune, Mike Williams has a torn hamstring. It is presumably a partial tear, given the fact that Williams has not been ruled out for the season and did not appear to pick up any additional injuries against the Carolina Panthers. Greg Schiano today noted that Mike Williams' injury is a "condition" that would be a game-to-game issue. JoeBucsFan reported that the receiver could miss several weeks or even all of the remaining season.

Mike Williams has been battling his hamstring injury for weeks and has not looked very effective during that time. Still, the Bucs' scheme relies heavily on their receivers winning jump-ball battles and without Williams, they will be limited even further as a passing offense. If Williams can't go, Chris Owusu and Tiquan Underwood are likely to get the bulk of the receiving work.

In other news, this season is somehow getting worse every week. Oh joy.
