In a move that serves only to highlight the team’s failure to disclose Mario Williams’ wrist injury at any point during the first five weeks of the regular season, the Bills have disclosed Mario Williams’ wrist injury on both injury reports released for Week Six.
Williams, who hasn’t lived up to the expectations created by his big-money contract, injured the wrist in the preseason. He was listed as fully participating in practice despite the injury — something the Bills should have been doing all along.
“I always get doubled, get chipped or get tripled — it is what it is,” Williams recently said, via Pro Football Weekly. “The biggest thing that I have to do is to use my hands and overcome the whole wrist thing. That’s what I do — I’m a hands person.”
Though some would dispute that Williams is always getting double-teamed and most would say he’s not getting triple-teams, the reality is that Williams isn’t getting it done. And Bills fans don’t want to hear excuses, even if the excuses have merit. They want results.
Results may not be coming from defensive tackle Kyle Williams, who has missed practice this week due to an ankle injury. According to Tim Graham of the Buffalo News, the Bills are simply resting Kyle Williams in advance of Sunday’s game at Arizona.
