Bucs wideout Mike Williams stabbed in thigh by brother

Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith was already disturbed about the pattern of behavior by wide receiver Mike Williams.

Now he has to worry about Williams’ health.

According to Bobby Lewis of WTSP, Williams remains in St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa after being stabbed in the thigh by his brother.

A spokeswoman from the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said Williams was stabbed at his home on Sunday afternoon. Police are still looking for the brother in question.

There hasn’t been any comment from the Buccaneers at the moment, as they continue to gather information.

Another incident might not sit well with them a year after he signed a $40 million contract, but they now have to be concerned about his physical condition.

UPDATE 8:48 p.m. ET: Right on cue, the Bucs issued the statement that doesn’t really say anything:

“We are aware of the situation that occurred at the residence of Mike Williams and are working with him and the authorities to get additional information. While we have limited knowledge at this time, our primary concern is for the safety and well bring of all involved. We will refrain from further comment until we can get a better understanding of the situation.”

    Couldn’t imagine hurting a close family member like that

    Ouch… time to draft Mike Evans.

  4. pftaddict says: Mar 23, 2014 8:43 PM

    The Bucs need to cut their losses on Williams and cut him from the team. He is never going to be as good as he was a couple of years ago.

  5. gdive says: Mar 23, 2014 8:44 PM

    Sounds like Williams may be getting an apple and a bus ticket soon from the Bucs.

  6. thereisalwaysnextyear says: Mar 23, 2014 8:44 PM

    Office said Williams was stabbed in the at his home on Sunday afternoon

    As much as you criticize players who “we thought were already retired” you sure are sloppy. Try proof reading your posts. You have more mistakes than my 7 year old.

    yay for Florida..

  8. bittersmuggs says: Mar 23, 2014 8:45 PM

    I heard he was in danger of being cut, but this isn’t what I had in mind…

  9. 4grammarpolice says: Mar 23, 2014 8:46 PM

    Doesn’t happen to baseball players. Just saying.

  10. thevikesarebest says: Mar 23, 2014 8:46 PM

    And notice how the vikings don’t have these problems?

  11. Mind Explorer says: Mar 23, 2014 8:49 PM

    I guess he’s not his brothers keeper.

  12. mrdownslider says: Mar 23, 2014 8:50 PM

    Is there any way to find out the statistics of NFL players arrested/involved in violent crimes vs the rest of the population??

  13. 6250claimer says: Mar 23, 2014 8:50 PM

    Pretty clear what probably happened here. Brother wanted money. MW said no. Figure out the rest, it’s not complicated.

  14. thepftpoet says: Mar 23, 2014 8:50 PM

    Condolences to Mike Williams and his loved ones.

    Hope he’s alright.

    His brother must have had Witchita State in his brackets

  19. thepftpoet says: Mar 23, 2014 8:56 PM

    Cordarelle Patterson and Greg Jennings never have any off the field troubles.

    I just met Greg Jennings recently in Minnesota when he was volunteering.

    Maybe Mike should spent time doing things that help society.

    ouchsies!

  22. mitybuc says: Mar 23, 2014 8:57 PM

    He’ll be a very good receiver for some team.

    It’s a Very bad time to be anything other than squeaky clean, and very talented at one Buc place right now.

  23. officialgame says: Mar 23, 2014 8:59 PM

    Desean is looking better and better.

  24. jacobslatter says: Mar 23, 2014 9:00 PM

    I didn’t know Mike’s brother was Ray Lewis.

  25. jonkoethe says: Mar 23, 2014 9:02 PM

    Bye bye Mike Williams’ thigh
    he was cut by his brother who’s a hotheaded guy
    and all those Buccanear fans look at each other and cry
    Saying 40 million the GM was high

  26. anonymous135 says: Mar 23, 2014 9:02 PM

    He must have bet his brother front row 50 yard line TB season tickets if Duke lost to Mercer and welched…

  27. sportnorcal says: Mar 23, 2014 9:07 PM

    “Keep your friends close. Keep you family farther.”

    Seriously – hope he is OK. Insane.

    Methinks he just got cut twice.

    LOL

  36. vegaskid21 says: Mar 23, 2014 9:25 PM

    Well that just made Lovie’s job on whether to cut him or not easier. No pun intended.

  37. jacksonjames4 says: Mar 23, 2014 9:25 PM

    this isn’t surprising to anyone who is from buffalo and knows the garbage riverside area that hes from. just because these losers get millions doesn’t mean they will have class. he’ll get cut, loose all his money because he’s ghetto and be looking for work in a few years

  38. bennyb82 says: Mar 23, 2014 9:34 PM

    The brother reportedly wants legal leniency due to the fact that he did not strike any vital organs.

  39. mcmccii says: Mar 23, 2014 9:35 PM

    There is probably a woman at the root of this.

  40. rsellersus says: Mar 23, 2014 9:36 PM

    So, is it wrong to find humor in the Bucs “cutting” Williams?

  41. bart15np says: Mar 23, 2014 9:38 PM

    Ouch town population you bro!

  42. officialgame says: Mar 23, 2014 9:38 PM

    As opposed to a classy guy uptown guy named jacksonjames who just created the longest run on sentence humanly possible.

  43. thegonz13 says: Mar 23, 2014 9:45 PM

    The guy already had red flags coming out of college and now he has a few more in the pros.

    Time to cut -no pun intended- your losses, Tampa!

  44. metalhead65 says: Mar 23, 2014 9:47 PM

    they may as well cut him and trade their other wide out. they will not be used much since Lovie smith is the coach and no matter who he has running it you will not have a NFL offense.

  45. taintedsaints2009 says: Mar 23, 2014 9:50 PM

    So which Mike Williams receiver is this?

  46. staffordsyear says: Mar 23, 2014 9:50 PM

    Looks like a Roy Williams kinda catch.. err non catch.

  47. hawkstradamus says: Mar 23, 2014 9:52 PM

    I’m guessing they didn’t spend the morning in church.

  48. donnymacjack says: Mar 23, 2014 9:52 PM

    release him and move on. He has trouble written all over him.

  50. maestro1899 says: Mar 23, 2014 9:55 PM

    This post leaves out part of the story…

    Mike actually slipped on a bag of McDonald’s and landed on his brother’s knife.

    Totally harmless. Nothing to see here.

    Brothers man, just because you share the same blood as an individual doesn’t mean mean you have to have any feelings or attachement towards them.

    Hence why I cut off my brothers from my life as early as I turned 18(no pun intended, not literrally) because they are poison and I don’t care for them.

    Mike you can be keeping people around that are going to hamper you, even if it’s blood.

    Adrian Peterson would like to know if he’s able to babysit.

  59. stevemad says: Mar 23, 2014 10:52 PM

    Get rid of his butt! His attitude made a major change one he got the big bucks. He’s now a wanna be rapper. Get him off this team and let him rap all he wants down the road. We need folks on this team that hold a high standard. Cut’em Lovie!

  60. stevemad says: Mar 23, 2014 10:57 PM

    Was thinking we need Khali Mack as our number one draft pick. But with William’s turning into a “gangsta”…we need to draft Sammy Watkins and cut our ties with Williams.
    For those wanting DeSean Jackson…wasn’t he the one riding around with $50,000 in cash in the front seat of his car? If so….something ain’t right there either

  61. realfootballfan says: Mar 23, 2014 11:15 PM

    For those loosely throwing around insulting descriptions of DeSean Jackson, this is the guy who is really all of those things.

  62. randomcommenter says: Mar 23, 2014 11:39 PM

    If they didn’t trade Revis already, he probably would have used this incident to demand more money.

  63. vikinganswer says: Mar 24, 2014 12:10 AM

    It could be any brother or bro

  64. mrneto72 says: Mar 24, 2014 12:25 AM

    I’m guessing the brother is not invited to Mike’s birthday piñata this year

  70. jayquintana says: Mar 24, 2014 4:13 AM

    They got rid of Revis, how hard will it be to get rid of this guy?

  71. lennymoorerules says: Mar 24, 2014 4:37 AM

    Talk about sibling rivalry! Regardless of what happened, a team like Tampa Bay cannot afford to put up with this type of craziness. Lovie Smith has invested a great deal in the future but I do not think that he envisions Williams to be part of it.

  72. cylondetector says: Mar 24, 2014 6:03 AM

    Actually that was Ed Reed that had $50k in the front seat of his car.

    That wasn’t Desean Jackson. It was Ed Reed.

  81. dublindemonszfl says: Mar 24, 2014 8:49 AM

    All this talk about cutting Williams. I’m sure his brother is a stand up guy, never been in trouble and was just there trying to get Mikey to go to church with him.
