Jamaal Williams, the running back from Green Bay Packers was injured in the last night game against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Packers team rushed to the 24-year-old RB and he was taken off the field on a stretcher. There are no reports on the extent of the injuries yet but Williams won’t be getting back for a long time.
Eagles vs Packers game was intense and the Packers were leading for the first half but when Williams was injured and taken out, the game scores changed. The Eagles won by 34-27 only because Williams was retired from the game. Jamaal Williams was taken to a local Green Bay hospital and by the looks of his injuries, retirement for the running back is imminent.
Jamaal Williams is Seriously Injured
Jamaal Williams was hit multiple times during the Eagles vs Packers Week 4 Thursday night football game. The Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham was holding the face mask of Williams when defensive end Derek Barnett came in flying and hit him on the helmet from his own helmet. Williams was just standing there when Barnett threw himself over the running back and the hit on the helmet resulted into a serious injury.
🙏 for Jamaal Williams.

That reminded me a lot of Danny Trevathan's cheap shot on Davante Adams on Thursday night in 2017. Whistle was already blown, but Derek Barnett came in and blew up Jamaal Williams. There's no place for that kind of shit.

Packers announced Jamaal Williams has feeling and movement in all extremities. He has been ruled Out for the rest of the game.

Jamaal Williams has been evaluated for neck and head injuries which are very serious for the time being. There are also reports of Williams having restricted movement in his extremities and everything will only be clear after the doctor’s report.
Jamaal Williams out of Packers for 2019 Season
The Packers running back was in good form and played amazing in all the three 2019 NFL games. Jamaal Williams has 26 carries for 87 yards and seven catches for 55 yards and a touchdown in the current season. Green Bay and Aaron Rodgers will now replace Williams with rookie Dexter Williams for the future games.
The injury was so extreme that Barnett from Eagles came in and apologized to Williams when he was carried on the stretchers. NFL injuries to such extent are very dangerous and can end the career of players. If the medical reports show some serious damage, the Packers can retire Jamaal Adams for the 2019 NFL season.
