AFC Notes: Browns, Texans, Bengals, Jets

Browns cornerback K’Waun Williams told his team that he was experiencing headaches recently, and the second-year player was ultimately diagnosed with his third concussion in two years. As the NFL looks to fight off head injuries, Tom Reed of says it’s a positive step that the youngster took the initiative to report the injury.

Many of his teammates stand by Williams’ decision, including cornerback Joe Haden:

“Yeah, definitely man, because that’s your head, and K’Waun, he’s a young dude,” Haden said. “He hasn’t been in the league that long, so if he’s messed up like that, he felt like he needed to go get himself checked out and make sure everything’s okay, then, I’m all in support for him just making sure he’s okay.”

Let’s take a look at some more notes from around the AFC…

  • Texans offensive lineman Jeff Adams is out for the season with a torn patellar tendon in his right knee. Still, the 26-year-old isn’t discouraged, even though he may have missed out on a payday when he reached free agency following the season. “€œYeah, that’€™s kind of how it works,”€ he told Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. “€œYou just focus on what you can control and that’€™s surgery and rehab…Yeah, you just put all the effort into the season and focus on things one day at a time. It’s how I’€™m trying to take it right now.”
  • Following the extension signed by Bengals lineman Andrew Whitworth, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer believes (via Twitter) it’s still too early to tell whether Andre Smith will stick around. The former first-rounder will reach free agency next summer, and Dehner says he could be back for the right price.
  • All signs are pointing to a divorce between the Jets and Muhammad Wilkerson following this season, and Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News believes the organization could use that extra cash to pursue a veteran quarterback.

Today’s minor signings, cuts, and other moves..

  • Washington has released cornerback David Amerson, according to John Keim of Amerson was taken No. 51 overall in 2013 and was the next cornerback taken off the board after Jonathan Banks.

  • Texans tackle/guard Jeff Adams is done for the year with a knee injury, as John McClain of the Houston Chronicle tweets. After Adams went down on Sunday, it was widely reported that Adams was IR-bound.
