Seahawks WR Williams has successful surgery but out for 2011

RENTON, Wash. -- The Seattle Seahawks placed wide receiver Mike Williams on season-ending injured reserve Tuesday, two days after he suffered a broken left ankle during a 38-14 victory over the Chicago Bears.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Williams underwent successful surgery Tuesday.

Williams was hurt during the third quarter Sunday when he was tackled after making his second catch of the game. The injury capped a disappointing season for Williams, who had a breakout 2010 before struggling in 2011. Williams finished the season with 18 catches for 236 yards and one touchdown. He had 65 receptions a year ago.

The Seahawks signed cornerback Phillip Adams to the active roster out of concern that backup Kennard Cox might not be ready for Saturday's game against the San Francisco 49ers.
