New York Jets defensive tackle Quinnen Williams underwent surgery Thursday to repair a broken bone in his foot, NFL Network reported Friday.

Dr. Robert Anderson performed the procedure and the expected recovery time is 10 to 12 weeks, per the report.

The timeline means Williams, 23, will miss OTAs and minicamp but should be healthy in time for training camp in late July.

The 2019 first-round pick (third overall) broke a small bone in his foot working out last week at the Jets’ facility.

Williams made 13 starts last season and recorded 55 tackles and a team-high seven sacks. His career totals include 83 tackles, 9 1/2 sacks, 20 quarterback hits, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery in 26 games (22 starts).
