Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams needed a cart to head to the locker room after injuring his knee in Sunday afternoon’s loss to the Bengals, but early word is that he’ll miss weeks rather than months as he recovers.

Sal Capaccio of the 550 WGR Bills radio team reports that the initial diagnosis for Williams is that he injured his posterior cruciate ligament during the game and that the injury isn’t believed to be of the season-ending variety. Williams, who was injured with just about five minutes to play, will have further tests to make sure that there isn’t a more serious injury.

If it is a PCL sprain, Williams will likely miss several weeks but should be able to return to the lineup before too much of the season has passed. He’s started every game for Buffalo this season and was credited with one tackle before getting hurt on Sunday.

The Bills head to London to face the Jaguars next weekend and then have their bye week, which will leave Williams with ample time to recover if he isn’t going to make the trip across the pond.
