Shortly after speculation rose on whether or not $100 million dollar defensive end, Mario Williams, would have surgery on his wrist, it has been released that Williams underwent a procedure to alleviate pain that he was suffering. The Buffalo Bills are not releasing much information but it seems like they are attempting to downplay the situation by calling it a “procedure” rather than a surgery.
Bills head coach, Chan Gailey, announced today that procedure has been completed and that Williams is expected to practice next week. While little has been clarified in detail, all we know is that Williams was not at the facility today for the team’s only practice this week. The wrist injury that Williams has been complaining about is something he suffered in training camp and pre-season. The $100 million man has not lived up to expectations so far this season, recording only 3.5 sacks this season. His primary goal was to get to great quarterbacks like Tom Brady, but right now he can’t seem to get to Matt Hasselback, let alone Brady.
Many are hoping that this really will solve the problems surrounding Williams in Buffalo and now we wait and wonder whether or not Williams will be available next Sunday to face his former team, who seems to be doing just as well without him, the Houston Texans. While it seems practical to have a procedure take place during a bye week, critics will be all over this and claiming it as an attempt to hide his way out of making the trip with the team. I would be lying if I said the thought didn’t cross my mind, and you would be lying if you said it didn’t cross your mind either.
