Sean McVay Announces Rams Rookie Kyren Williams Suffered Broken Foot
Rams’ rookie running back Kyren Wilkins broke her foot during practice last week.
The former Notre Dame standout had already undergone surgery to repair the injury. McVay stated that he expects the ballcarrier back in the first part of training camp in July.
“He had surgery, everything went great,” the Rams coach said during a press conference Tuesday .. “And we expect him back at some point during the earlier parts of training camp. But he’s gonna attack the rehab the right way and it’s an unfortunate setback and he’s gonna attack his rehab the right way and be back sooner than later.”
Los Angeles selected the 21-year-old Williams in the fifth round of the 2022 NFL draft out of Notre Dame with the No. 164 overall pick. Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson Jr. led a running backroom that included ballcarriers such as Raymond Calais, Jake Funk, and Xavier Jones.

Williams spent three years in South Bend, earning the starting job in the backfield during the 2020 and 2021 seasons. He was named second team All-ACC and ACC Rookie of the Year in his sophomore campaign after rushing for 1,125 yards and 13 touchdowns.
Williams followed up that stout performance in 2021, when he broke the 1,000-yard barrier once more, in addition to racking up 359 receiving yards and 17 total scores.
