New York Jets defensive tackle Quinnen Williams will be sidelined until training camp with a foot injury, NFL Network reported Tuesday.

The 2019 first-round pick (third overall) broke a small bone in his foot working out last week at the Jets’ facility and will require surgery, putting him out of commission for 8-10 weeks.

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

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).
