Trill Williams carted off with leg injury

The Dolphins tampering with Tom Brady while they already had Tua Tagovailoa wasn't a great look, but they appear to be committed to the young QB heading into the 2022 NFL season.

Dolphins cornerback Trill Williams played only one game last season. But he had worked his way up the depth chart and was expected to contribute as a top backup this season.

Williams, though, was carted to the locker room late in Saturday night’s preseason game, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

With 1:52 remaining, Williams tackled Deven Thompkins for a 5-yard loss on a throw from Kyle Trask. Williams immediately grabbled his left knee after the open-field stop.

He appeared to be in tears as he left the field.

The Dolphins did not provide an immediate update on Williams.

UPDATE 11:03 P.M. ET: Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel said there is concern for Williams’ “lower extremity” injury, but the team will know more Sunday after further medical testing.
