CINCINNATI (AP) Bengals rookie offensive tackle Jonah Williams is expected to miss the season after surgery for a torn labrum in his left shoulder.
The team said in a statement that Williams is expected to make a full recovery. He was injured at a practice earlier this month.
The Bengals drafted Williams at No. 11 overall in April, looking to upgrade an offensive line that has been a longstanding problem. They also took guard Michael Jordan in the fourth round and drafted center Billy Price in the first round last year. Cordy Glenn, last year's left tackle, is expected to return to his former spot.
''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,'' coach Zac Taylor said in a statement.
