Quinnen Williams' season is over according to Adam Gase, as the Jets plan to place the 2019 No. 3 overall pick on IR after suffering a concussion and neck injury last week against the Los Angeles Rams.

"I'm assuming they will [put him on IR] at some point, I think he's got to clear the concussion protocol first," Gase said during a Zoom call Wednesday morning.

Williams exited late during Sunday's win over the Rams after taking a kick to the head. He was seen being looked at on the field around his neck area before moving to the tent on the sidelines. On his way to the locker room, Williams had to hold himself up while bending over with his hands on his knees.

He had four combined tackles, a tackle for loss, and sack in the game against the Rams before exiting.

The DL finishes his second year on a bittersweet note, with the placement on IR ending what's been a stellar season for Williams.

In 13 games this year, Williams stuffed the stat sheet with 7.0 sacks, two forced fumbles, three passes defended, 10 tackles for loss, 14 QB hits and 55 total tackles (32 solo). 

"He's done a good job. ... had a good run of games. Felt like his consistency was pretty good," Gase said. "This year I felt like for a high majority of the games that you felt him. If you were on the other team, you felt him, whether you were playing quarterback or in the run game."
