The news spread quickly late Tuesday evening when Tim Graham of the Buffalo News reported that Buffalo Bills defensive end Mario Williams is contemplating wrist surgery. Citing a source Graham writes that Williams is considering having it done while the Bills are on their bye week.
Williams was signed this offseason for six years in a deal that could earn him up to $100 million, making him the highest-paid defensive player in league history. He’s hardly made close to the impact the Bills have hoped so far, picking up 3.5 sacks and 17 total tackles in seven games. How much his wrist has affected him isn’t clear, an injury which Williams said he hurt late in the preseason.
The Bills other big ticket free agent Mark Anderson has missed the past two games and expected out for multiple more following knee surgery.
We should find out more details on Williams today when head coach Chan Gailey speaks to the media. Good scoop here by Graham.
