Cincinnati Bengals left tackle Jonah Williams and right guard Alex Cappa have been ruled out for Sunday’s divisional round playoff game against the host Buffalo Bills, coach Zac Taylor announced.
Williams sustained a dislocated kneecap in the second quarter of the Bengals’ 24-17 victory over the Baltimore Ravens last Sunday. Cappa is nursing an ankle injury that prevented him from playing in that wild-card game.
Jackson Carman replaced Williams last week and likely will get the start versus Buffalo. Max Scharping will get the nod in place of Cappa.
Williams, 25, started 16 games in the regular season and played every snap of those contests. He has started all 42 games in which he has played since the Bengals selected him with the 11th overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft.
Like Williams, Cappa also started all 16 games in which he has played this season. The 27-year-old has played in 68 games (62 starts) with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Bengals.
