The New Orleans Saints have placed RB Jamaal Williams on injured reserve due to a hamstring injury he suffered in last week’s game against the Carolina Panthers.

This means that Willams will miss at least the next four games. The earliest that he will be eligible to return will be in Week 7, when the Saints will face the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday, October 19th. This move is not that surprising because Saints head coach Dennis Allen said at Tuesday’s press conference that Williams could be out some time because of the injury. So, it makes sense to place Williams on IR while he is recovering and free up his roster spot to bring up a player from the practice squad.
