Coach Rex Ryan says Williams (knee) has a 50-50 chance to return this season. Williams is a Pro Bowl player and he's always been worth every bit of those honors, so it'd be a big loss for the defense if he's unable to return this season. Fortunately, the Bills have three other very capable and healthy linemen in Marcell Dareus, Mario Williams, and Jerry Hughes, though it looks like the hope of the foursome being the league's best this season may be fading thanks to Kyle Williams' injury.
Williams (knee) did not participate in Thursday's practice, Chris Brown of Buffalobills.com reports. Head coach Rex Ryan didn't think Williams would be able to play this week against the Patriots, saying on Tuesday he doesn't believe "there's any chance" the defensive tackle will be able to suit up. The 32-year-old has missed the previous three games due to a knee injury.
Williams, who has missed the last three games due to a knee injury, is not looking good for the team's next game against the Patriots, BuffaloBills.com reports. Said coach Rex Ryan on his weekly radio appearance with WGR550, "I don't think he's going to be ready to go this week." If there were one game on the schedule where Williams would return if he could, it'd be a game against the undefeated Patriots. However, that looks like it won't be the case. Williams is having an awful season compared to his Pro Bowl standards, with just 14 tackles and a sack through six games played.
Williams (knee) is expected to miss the Bills' next two games, The Buffalo News reports. Williams suffered a significant knee injury during the Bills' Week 6 loss to the Bengals, and although he's eventually expected back, the veteran is still expected to miss at least Buffalo's next two games. Given that timetable, Williams could be in line to return in Week 11 against the Patriots, but his status will have to be revisited around that time.
Williams suffered a knee injury during Sunday's loss to the Bengals. A source has told ESPN's Adam Scheffer that Williams has already been ruled out for next week's game in London. Williams, who put up 16 sacks when you combine the last two seasons, has really struggled in Rex Ryan's new defense, but he's still one of the leagues better interior linemen and the team will certainly feel some pain until he's able to return.
