    Bills' Aaron Williams: Believed to be healthy

    Bills general manager Doug Whaley said Williams (neck) is healthy, Tyler Dunne of the Buffalo News reports. A neck injury limited Williams to three appearances in 2015, with his most recent outing coming on Oct. 11. The Bills placed him on IR/designated to return, but he was later ruled out for the remainder of the season once a playoff appearance was out of the question. Williams also dealt with a neck injury the previous season, so while he's seemingly on track to jump back in as the starting free safety, there are still some serious questions about his long-term future in football.

    Bills' Aaron Williams: No return in 2015

    Williams (neck) will not return for the Bills' last two games, The Buffalo News reports. "He (coach Rex Ryan) knows that I really want to play this year, but unfortunately the outcome is a lot different than I expected," said Williams. "All I can do is really just get ready for next year." Williams has been saying all along he plans to play next season, but given the type of injury he's dealing with, the team won't really know his long-term ability to play until he sees game action. Thus, it may be hard to count on him as the starting free safety heading into a full season, though we'll note the team does have a decent amount of depth at the position.

    Bills' Aaron Williams: Not ready to return

    While Williams (neck) continues to practice, he's not yet ready to return to game action and hasn't been cleared for contact, BuffaloBills.com reports. "Still not real sure on that," said coach Rex Ryan in reference to whether or not Williams will be activated from injured reserve. "I like the fact that he's out here practicing and he's moving well, but it's the contact. It's hard to say absolutely and things like that because right now he's not ready for contact." Williams still isn't 100 percent sure he's going to be OK for the long term until he tests things out in a real game. We'll see if the Bills try to make that happen in one of the last two games, as he will not be activated for Sunday's game in Washington.

    Bills' Aaron Williams: Out for Sunday vs. Washington

    Williams, who recently returned to practice following neck surgery, will not play Sunday in Washington, BuffaloBills.com reports. "He's been practicing so I think that's good," said coach Rex Ryan. "Do I expect him to play? No I don't. We will err on the side of caution with that type of injury with the neck. So that's a given." Even though the team has a banged-up defense, it probably wouldn't be smart to rush a player back that's had so much trouble with his neck area that he was nearly forced to retire. Williams maintains that he'd like to return in one of the team's last two games.

    Bills' Aaron Williams: Unlikely comeback?

    Williams returned to practice Thursday, BuffaloBills.com reports. He's been out since Week 5 after having neck surgery. "This morning, I got the green light," said the veteran. "I've never been so excited to practice. Being gone from the game for so long, you get that urge, that itch to get back out there. It just felt good." Even recently, Williams was worried his playing career might be over, but it sounds as if the surgery really worked wonders and he's confident he can play again this season. It's almost a certainty the team's starting free safety will sit this week, however, though it'd be a nice boost to have him back - even on a limited basis - given his ability as well as the banged-up defense's need for healthy bodies.

    Bills' Aaron Williams: Could be shut down for season

    Bills general manager Doug Whaley said Williams (neck) may be shut down for the season, Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News reports. The Bills want to see Williams practice before they make any decisions, so he does still have a shot to get on the field. He was placed on IR/designated to return in mid-October, with Week 14 representing his earliest possible date for a return. Baccari Rambo has filled in capably the past few weeks, making up for his mistakes with a handful of big plays.

    Bills S Aaron Williams placed on IR with designation to return

    Bills safety Aaron Williams has been placed on injured reserve, with a designated to return label. Williams had neck troubles Sunday against Tennessee, but returned to action. The scary part is he was taken off the field on a stretcher in Week 2 against the Patriots. We'll assume for now this is all related, while the Buffalo defense takes a hit because Williams is superior to the guys that filled in for him last time.

    Bills' Aaron Williams: Returns to action Sunday against Titans

    Updating an earlier report, Williams (neck) returned to action Sunday against the Titans, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW reports. Good news for the Bills as they'll have their starting strong safety back in the lineup. They'll be stronger in the middle of the field with his return.

    Bills' Aaron Williams: Questionable to return against Titans

    Williams (neck) is questionable to return Sunday against the Titans. While Williams sits out, Bacarri Rambo will likely take over duties at strong safety. Titans tight end Delanie Walker may find a little more room to operate in the middle of the field.

    Bills' Aaron Williams: Active Sunday

    Williams (neck) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Titans. Williams, who racked up 76 tackles in 15 games in in 2014, is out there if you need him Sunday, but we'd like to see him get a full and productive game in before endorsing him as a fantasy lineup option.
