Bills defensive end Mario Williams has been bothered all season by pain in his wrist, and today the team confirmed that Williams had surgery that is expected to relieve the pain — and not expected to cause him to miss any games.
“The update on Mario is he had a procedure done to relieve some discomfort in his wrist and we expect him back for practice this week,” Bills coach Chan Gailey said today. “That’s all I know at this point.”
The Bills are on their bye this week, and Williams is expected to be with the team at practice on Monday.
“They told me what happened and said he’ll be ready next week,” Gailey said. “He’ll be at practice next week. That’s what I understand. That’s what I was told.”
After signing the most lucrative contract for a defensive player in NFL history this year, Williams is off to a disappointing start, and the Bills’ defense is off to a disastrous start. Getting Williams healthy could go a long way toward a better second half of the season, both for Williams and for the Bills.
