Collarbone
April 19, 2021
The Bulldogs are preparing for Williams to miss up to a month of action after he was diagnosed with a fractured collarbone following his departure from Saturday's 118-56 win over the Suns.
ANALYSIS
Williams already had surgery to address the injury, which he sustained in the third quarter of Saturday's match. For now, the Bulldogs are projecting Williams to miss 2-to-4 weeks, so he could be ready to return to the field by early May if he ends up making a rapid recovery from surgery.

Williams has seen his production drop in every week since Round 1 and he recorded 14 disposals and one mark before picking up this injury against the Suns. He'll have to get his shoulder checked out before his status can be confirmed in Round 6.

Williams signed a two-year contract extension with Western on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
Williams will remain with the team through 2023. The defender played in all 18 games in 2020 and won the Tony Liberatore Most Improved Player Award. Through the first three rounds in 2021, averaging 22.3 disposals and six marks per contest. He'll look to remain a stout member of the defense for the next two seasons.

July 29, 2020
Williams scored one behind and collected 23 disposals (14 kicks, nine handballs) and made five marks during Wednesday's 90-49 loss to Richmond.
ANALYSIS
Williams was one of the few to make an impact in this match, and has steadily improved his game with at least 20 disposals in the last two matches. He'll need to keep up his efforts against an even stronger opponent in Port Adelaide.
