    The Cincinnati Bengals have likely lost their first-round pick for the season, again.

    On Tuesday, the team revealed that Jonah Williams underwent shoulder surgery and will likely miss his rookie season.


    Per Bengals.com:

    The club confirmed that rookie left tackle Jonah Williams underwent left shoulder surgery Tuesday to repair a torn labrum that is likely to sideline him for the entire season, but he is expected to make a full recovery. He sat out the June 11-13 mandatory minicamp after getting injured the week before in practice.

    And here is a statement from Zac Taylor:

    “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. We’re confident in our offensive line personnel as we head into training camp, and we believe they can do their part in helping this team achieve its goals.”

    Bengals first-round picks are officially cursed. Williams will almost certainly join the likes of John Ross, Billy Price, William Jackson and Cedric Ogbuehi as top picks that end up missing part, if not all of their rookie seasons due to injury.

    Alas, the Bengals will now rely on Cordy Glenn at left tackle. Glenn briefly moved to left guard after Williams took over the left side during OTAs.

    Losing the 11th overall pick before he plays a down of football is never ideal, but we’re all used to it by now since the Bengals have the worst luck when it comes to their top picks missing significant time as rookies.

    We are coming into that time of year when we too may get an unexpected injury. Let's keep our fingers crossed that we can get through camp and preseason with no major injuries to any of our guys.
    From the 2010-2018 season, (An 8 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks. Our history has been defined by what we do in the postseason; not the regular season.

    This. Injuries always suck. But, I always feel for young guys who miss entire seasons.

    Other than Shazier the Steelers generally do a decent job finding replacements for injured players.
    ... course that depends on whether it happens early or late season.

    Whole season injuries really suck though.

    Fingers crossed
