SALT LAKE CITY – Former Utah Utes and current Baltimore Ravens defensive back Marcus Williams is “feared” to have torn his pectoral muscle during Week 1 of the season, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

The NFL insider reported on Williams’ injury on Sunday, September 10.

Williams left Baltimore’s opener early after suffering an injury.

After the game, Rapoport provided an update on the former Ute’s status.

“#Ravens standout DB Marcus Williams is feared to have torn his pec in today’s game, source said. He’ll have an MRI to confirm. Another major injury for Baltimore,” Rapoport posted on X, formerly known as Twitter.

The major injury like a torn pec could potentially end Williams’ season.

“Marcus Williams has full movement and the pain is limited, but it’s very swollen, source said. The MRI will tell the story,” Rapoport added in an additional post.

In Week 1, the Ravens beat the Houston Texans, 25-9.

Midway through the contest, Williams was ruled out after he first exited the contest with what was initially called a shoulder injury.

Before leaving the contest, Williams had four total tackles, three solo tackles, and a pass breakup.

Last year, Williams spent time on Baltimore’s injured reserve list after he dislocated his wrist.
