Kyle Williams is slated to undergo season-ending left knee surgery, ESPN.com reports.
Williams, who hasn't played since Oct. 18, has been slow to recover from a meniscus injury and will thus turn to a procedure that should enable him to return to the playing field well in advance of the 2016 season.
Kyle Williams (knee) is likely headed for IR.
While such a move has yet to be officially made by the Buffalo Bills , given that this comes directly from coach Rex Ryan, it seems a likely outcome. In six games this season, Williams has recorded 14 tackles and a sack, modest IDP numbers, but the DT's expected absence moving forward nonetheless represents a big hit to the Bills' overall team D.
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 Buffalo 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.
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.
Kyle 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, Buffalo Buffalo Bills .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.
