Mario Williams added to list of injured Bills

The Bills have had a lot of injury issues on defense to overcome this season and they got worse on Sunday when cornerback Leodis McKelvin, defensive tackle Marcell Dareus and defensive end Alex Carrington had to leave the 27-20 loss to the Jets early.

Those absences were added to running back C.J. Spiller’s early exit on offense and could be overshadowed by injury news about defensive end Mario Williams. Williams wasn’t on the field much down the stretch, but coach Doug Marrone said after the game that he wasn’t aware of any specific health problem that had knocked the end out of the game.

Tim Graham of the Buffalo News reports that Williams was “limping mightily” after the game and that he was headed for an x-ray, although what body part was set for a scan remains unknown. Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports that a Bills official later confirmed that Williams was undergoing treatment and that he would not have a comment for the media.

Without further information, it’s impossible to know what, if any, impact this will have on the Bills defense. Even if Williams is fine, however, the Bills are losing players at a rapid rate on defense and they’ll need some of them to return to the lineup in order to offer any serious resistance in the coming weeks.

  1. It’s Groundhog Day in Buffalo. Same thing with injuries every season. They aren’t good enough to overcome such massive losses that keep decimating the team. It sure is amazing how some teams can remain relatively healthy, while others simply can’t…

  2. hey, he hate me, how does Mario getting hurt have anything to do with bills mafia. that makes no sense, you tried to be funny, but you just showed your education level. total idiot

  3. baltimoron you should be more concerned about the Ravens offense than the Bills. I was at the game yesterday and without a pick 6 and PR touchdown that’s a different game. Their offense is terrible and no one cares about the Ravens or the perceived lack of respect. I hope the Bills win.

  4. I wish the bills mafia would go away. these guys are a bunch of clowns who give the rest of the fanbase nothing but shame. not to mention it’s a really stupid name. this is coming from a bills fan. shut up until we have a .500 season.

    Talk about Football, not the Fans. The Fans have no control over how the players or their favorite team plays. Show some respect kid.
