Williams, who played 45 defensive snaps and logged a tackle in his first-ever playoff game Sunday in a 12-season NFL career, is undecided about his future, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. "I don't have one," the veteran said about his timetable for a decision. "We'll meet with the people who need to be met with, and discuss it and we'll see where we go."
Williams was the heart and soul of the Bills' surprising run to the playoffs and can still play at a high level, but there's a lot of wear and tear on his body after all this time in the league, plus there's something to be said for finally reaching the playoffs and helping the team snap a 17-season drought. It seems unlikely he'd start fresh with a new team, so we'll see if he wants to come back for one more go-round with Sean McDermott's process.
Williams (groin) is active for Sunday's contest against the Patriots.
Williams only registered one limited practice this week, but there wasn't much doubt about the veteran lineman's ability to play come Sunday. He's expected to see his normal role along the starting defensive line.
Williams is enough of a veteran that he could probably go the entire week without practicing and still play capably Sunday. With his career winding down and without a single playoff game on his fine resume, there's no way Williams is missing Week 16.
Williams has been muddling through this for several weeks, but given this could be the final season for the long-time veteran there's almost no way he's going to miss the last two weeks as the Bills try to fight for a playoff spot, something Williams has never been a part of in his otherwise successful career.
Williams (groin) doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
Williams was upgraded to a full participant in Friday's practice, which was enough for him to avoid missing his first game of the season. The five-time Pro Bowler has seen his play slip in 2017, as he's tallied only 33 tackles and two sacks in 13 contests, both of which are well behind his 2016 pace.
