Mario Williams emerges from Miami debut with a concussion

After racking up 38 sacks between 2012-14, Williams had just five sacks in 909 snaps last season. He was released by the Bills following a disappointing year playing linebacker in Rex Ryan's 3-4 system. Miami is banking on Williams being more comfortable in the 4-3, but Williams' best days could be in the past.    (AP Photo/Phelan M. Ebenhack, File) AP

In his first game with the Dolphins, defensive end Mario Williams had a sack. He also, however, suffered an injury.

According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, Williams has a concussion.

He’ll be required to pass an independent neurological exam before returning to practice. He then will be required to pass a separate exam before he’ll be able to play.

The Miami defense had three sacks of Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. On one of them, Wilson injured his ankle.

    Mario played a great game as did the entire Miami D. Its a shame he was not able to play in that entire last drive

    The Fins D really missed him after he went out

    So much for all the talk about him loafing or slow. He was a beast! They really needed him on that final drive. The Dolphins let this one slip away. I hope he revovers quickly. Why can’t the 4 players who took a knee during the Anthem get a concussio? Maybe they already have one? What a disgusting choice they made. I am embarrassed to be a Dolphins Fan today and not because of their play and even more so than when they went 1-15.

    The dolphins played a heck of a game and should’ve won that game. Tannehill and Foster played great and the defense played spectacular. I knew this game was going to be a lot harder than most made it seem. The dolphins will make some noise this year!

    If you hold the Seahawks to 12 points in Seattle, you should win. I thought the offense was supposed to be the strength of the team.

    Williams was a beast all day. I still can’t believe Stills missed that wide open touchdown pass. That, a blocked filed goal, and not trying for a field goal on 4th down were the difference in blowing out Seattle and limping home with a loss. I hope Mario is good again soon, and Stills finds his hands.

    Miami have been bad for so long I am afraid losing games like that is not surprising and in that way. We keep talking about missed opportunities but is the excuse of teams without a winning mentality. It’s easy to lose and a lot less hassle to lose. It’s not about putting a shift in or playing hard because all teams do this even though us as fans think they don’t when we consistently lose. It’s all about having a winning mentality and the only to get it is you guessed it is by winning regularly something we don’t do.
