Mario Williams says foot “not that serious”

Mario Williams AP

Bills defensive end Mario Williams was back on the field, sort of, this morning.

And he said the foot injury that’s kept him off the field so far this camp wasn’t anything to worry about.

It’s not that serious,” Williams said, via Mike Rodak of ESPN.com. “This is precaution. I’m just following orders.”

Williams left camp to get a second opinion on his sore foot, and was limited to riding a stationary bike when he came back. He offered no more specifics about his condition, and said he wasn’t concerned it would linger like the wrist injury he had surgically repaired last year during the bye week.

Bills coach Doug Marrone said Williams had been told by doctors to rest his foot, saying he was “day to day.”

After yesterday’s outburst, it’s good to see Marrone can update the injury report without incident.

    This isn’t his first foray into foot problems. He had a bad case of plantar faciatis (sp?) when in Houston. He played through it but was far less effective.

    ====================================
    Like they knew he had this a year ago?
    1/ He didn’t have this injury then.
    2/ This regime didn’t bring Mario here
    3/ If it was the regular season he could play.
    4/ He has better support players around him.
    5/ Take your hatin’ back to Oakland or whatever rock you crawled under from.

    It amazes me to read all the hater’s comments regarding Mario Williams. Yes, he signed a huge contract and registered 10.5 sacks in his 1st year with a new team, coach and system. IMO that is an excellent start. Can’t wait to see what he doest this year.

    It will be interesting this year to watch Reggie Bush with the Lions and Mario Williams with the Bills.

    We’ll see who has the better year….

    Just to clarify Mario’s 10.5 sacks… every sack was made during garbage time AND 3 sacks against a worthless Miami team.

    He had ZERO productivity again teams with winning records. This is exactly why you can’t just look at stats…

    To be fair, almost all of last season was garbage time.

    Pretty much everything you said here is wrong. He had 3 sacks against Indianapolis, not Miami.
    Also, look at when his sacks happened.

    Cleveland (1.5 sacks) – 1 sack in the 2nd quarter, 0.5 sack late in the 4th.

    Arizona (2 sacks) – 1 sack in the 1st quarter, 1 sack in the 3rd quarter with Bills down 1.

    Houston (1 sack) – 1 sack in the 2nd quarter

    Miami (1 sack) – 1 sack in the 2nd quarter

    Indianapolis (3 sacks) – 1 sack in the 1st quarter, 1 sack in the 3rd quarter, 1 sack in the 4th with the Bills down 7.

    Jacksonville (1 sack) – 1 strip/sack in the 2nd quarter.

    St. Louis (1 sack) – 1 sack in the 1st quarter.

    So only 0.5 a sack came in garbage time (against Cleveland)

    Oh ok, in that case, lets add up ALL THE DEFENSIVE END AND LBS “garbage time” sacks and compare. Pretty sure Mario will still hold up.

    PLUS & more importantly, there’s really no such thing as a GARBAGE TIME sack. Does the OT let up since they are leading or time is ticking? Get real.
