Consider this an early Christmas present from the Jets Thursday. Freshly-named Pro Bowl defensive tackle Quinnen Williams reportedly will play tonight against the Jaguars, per Connor Hughes on SNY.
Big news: #Jets DL Quinnen Williams WILL play tonight vs the #Jaguars, sources tell @SNYtv
Williams has team-high 11 sacks this year. Was just voted to Pro Bowl.
RB Zonovan Knight also good to go.

Williams was considered questionable with a calf injury but was listed as a full participant on Wednesday’s estimated practice report — the Jets held walkthroughs all week — which was a good sign that he would be able to play.
After clearly missing Williams against the Lions, the Jets will get a much-needed boost as they look to cool down a Jaguars team that has scored victories over the Titans and Cowboys over the last two weeks and make life miserable for Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence, who has finally started seeing everything click for him since coming into the NFL.
The Jets need to win to keep their playoff hopes somewhat manageable. A loss could soon signal the end of the line. Getting their Pro Bowl defensive tackle back is a huge help in that department.
