Santonio Holmes blasts Lucas Oil Stadium turf following Jameson Williams injury
Santonio Holmes can relate to what happened to Alabama star wide receiver Jameson Williams, who suffered an apparent serious knee injury during the national championship on Monday night.
The former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver tweeted during the game that, “I ended my career playing on that bull$shit. Turf is trash, worst thing to ever happen to football.”
Williams suffered the injury in the second quarter, as he went down with a scary-looking leg injury on a non-contact play.
Williams had 4 catches for 65 yards before he left Monday’s contest, as he caught a 40 yard pass from Young on the play where he suffered the injury. He finished his junior year with 79 receptions for 1,572 yards and 15 touchdowns.

Williams suffered the injury to his left knee and didn’t return, as he joined fellow 1,000-yard receiver John Metchie III on Alabama’s injured list.
“J-Mo was a great player for us all year,” Alabama coach Nick Saban said. “He made a lot of explosive plays. And I think anytime you lose players like him and John Metchie, it certainly has some impact on how you can perform offensively.”
