Breece Hall | ACL tear / Meniscus tear | Season-ending injury
Video didn't clearly show Hall's injury but Robert Saleh told reporters after the game the team believes Hall tore his ACL.
Hall will have an MRI on Monday but imaging almost always confirms the medical examination. Expect Hall to have reconstructive surgery and miss the rest of the season. If there are no associated injuries, Hall should be ready for training camp next summer.
Monday update: The Jets and multiple national reporters confirmed Hall's torn ACL diagnosis. Hall also likely has a meniscus injury. He'll need surgery to reconstruct the ACL and 8-9 months recovery time.
DK Metcalf | Left knee injury | Week-to-week | Doubtful Week 8
Metcalf injured his left knee and was carted to the locker room. Pete Carroll told reporters Metcalf "came down on his knee in an odd way" and the extent of the injury was still undetermined.
Video angles are possibly consistent with an ACL injury but other diagnoses are possible. The team elected to do x-rays in the stadium after the injury -- which suggests the field exam did not suggest an ACL tear. I'll update after Monday's MRI.
Monday update: Pete Carroll told reporters Metcalf "hurt his patellar some" but the MRI report was more reassuring than the team expected. Carroll refused to rule Metcalf out for Week 8. Whether Metcalf suffered a low-grade patellar tendon strain or a partial dislocation of his kneecap is unclear. Regardless of the specific diagnosis, swelling and stiffness will make it very unlikely he'll improve enough to play this week.
Mike Williams | Right high ankle sprain | Week-to-week | Bye Week 8
Williams told reporters he suffered an ankle sprain. Video clearly showed evidence of a high ankle sprain. The Chargers will further evaluate with an MRI on Monday. Although the Chargers have a Week 8 bye, it's possible Williams will still miss time.
Monday update: Brandon Staley confirmed Williams will miss multiple weeks with his ankle sprain. Don't expect Williams to return until Week 10 at the earliest.
