Williams, 28, has suffered a “small fracture” to a bone in his foot and will not play for Huddersfield at Burnley on Saturday (Watch live, 10 a.m. ET online via NBCSports.com).
UPDATE: Pro Soccer Talk understands Williams’ injury will keep him out of action for about 2-3 weeks.
Speaking to reporters ahead of the trip to Turf Moor, Wagner gave some more information on Williams’ injury.
So, it doesn’t seem like a long-term injury but after Williams battled to start his first-ever start in the Premier League against Leicester City last week in a 1-1 draw, this knock has come at a very frustrating time for the German-American midfielder as he established himself at his new club.
Williams has battled hard to get into Huddersfield’s starting lineup after his free transfer from Reading over the summer.
Some USMNT fans were also calling for Williams to get a recall from Bruce Arena ahead of the U.S. national teams crucial 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Panama and Trinidad & Tobago next month.
The combative midfielder now faces an anxious wait about the severity of his injury.
