Report: Ravens receiver LaQuan Williams injured hamstring against Rams

LaQuan Williams injured his hamstring early against the Rams Thursday night, according to the Baltimore Sun. - Douglas Jones-USA TODAY Sports

According to the Baltimore Sun, the third-year receiver was injured early against St. Louis.

With Marlon Brown, Tandon Doss and Aaron Mellette all having standout games Thursday night, one receiver seemed lost in the shuffle.

That would be third-year receiver LaQuan Williams, who did not record a catch against the Rams. There were two initial schools of though: Either the Ravens considered Williams a lock or they knew he was out of town.

Then there was a third option. He hurt himself.

That seems to be what happened, as Aaron Wilson at the Baltimore Sun reported that Williams injured his hamstring early in Baltimore's 24-21 loss Thursday night.


Hamstring injuries can be nagging, but unless it's torn, it can be something a player can recover from in a couple of weeks. For this to be considered injured reserve worthy, it would have to be deemed a six-week injury that a doctor could sign off on. At the same time, as long as Williams can prove he was injured on the field for his job, the Ravens can't cut him without reaching an injury settlement, which would seem unlikely in Williams' case, considering he's been on all four first team special teams units this preseason.

Williams had a great performance against Tampa Bay in the preseason opener, catching two passes for 32 yards and a touchdown, as well as recovering a muffed punt and a blocked punt for a touchdown. He ended the preseason with three total catches for 43 yards and a touchdown.
