The Bills have lost two of their last three games, falling into a three-way tie for the AFC East division lead and having defensive tackle Kyle Williams in the lineup would be a good way to turn things back around.
They may not have that chance, though. Williams has missed the last three games with a foot injury and coach Chan Gailey said Monday that Williams will miss this weekend’s matchup with the Cowboys as well. Gailey also said that Williams will head to see a foot specialist in the Carolinas this week to get another opinion on his foot. Joe Buscaglia of WGR 550 radio surmises that is likely Dr. Robert Anderson, the North Carolina doctor who is also consulting with Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw.
“That is a possibility, I’m not going to say it’s not,” Gailey said in response to a question about whether Williams could miss the rest of the season.
In their two losses without Williams, the Bills have struggled to stop the running attacks of the Giants and Jets. With three straight road games coming up, including a visit to the Jets in Week 12, Buffalo needs to shore up that issue if they are going to remain alive in the AFC East race. That’s not their only problem right now, but it is a big one for their hopes of making good on their 4-1 start to the season.
