DE WILLIAMS, UNDERWENT SURGERY ON LEFT WRIST
Mon, 29 Oct 2012 10:41 AM EDT

Mario Williams is not expected to miss any games after the Bills high-priced defensive end had what the team called “a procedure” to relieve pain in his wounded left wrist.

Coach Chan Gailey provided the update, saying he expects Williams to return practice once the Bills return from their bye weekend. Gailey otherwise was short on sharing specifics relating to the standing of the NFL’s highest-paid defensive player.

Gailey wouldn’t reveal what the process was, where or when it took place — “I think it was yesterday,” he revealed — and even who determined it was mandatory.

“I don’t know all that,” Gailey announced in talking about the team’s underperforming star who signed a 6-year, $100 million contract in free agency in March. “They told me what happened and said he’d be ready next week. That is all I know.”

That might be all that counts for the Bills (3-4), who stumbled into their bye week having lost 3 of 4. They get a chance to rest, recover and regroup before going to play at Houston — Williams’ former team — on November 4.

Williams missed practice and did not attend team conferences. He hasn’t been spotted at the Bills’ facility since he talked with reporters after a 35-34 loss last Sunday to Titans.

He has been worried by the injury since being hurt in the final week of the preseason. Though Williams hasn’t revealed the actual nature of the injury, he’s blamed it on influencing his performance by limiting his ability to use his left hand in shedding blockers.

His production has been spotty at the best and ended in Williams taking the brunt of criticism for lots of the defense’s lacks this season. Football odds

Buffalo has allowed an NFL-worst 1,238 yards rushing – that is just 986 yards short of the team’s total last season – and that includes handing over a combined 937 yards rushing in its past 4 games.

Williams is a 2-time Pro Bowl selection who in 6 seasons in Houston set the Texans’ franchise record with 53 career sacks.

In Buffalo Bills, he’s 2nd on the team with 3½ sacks. And that’s down from last year in Houston, where he had 5 sacks in 5 games before landing on the season-ending injured reserve list due to a chest injury.

“I’m hesitant,” he had said, after being credited with 2 tackles. “I do not know if it is just me generally, but that’s on me and that’s fine. I know I have to switch that, listen to me. I don’t need any person to tell me that. I look at it just like everyone else does.”

Williams’ injury has proved high-priced for the Bills. The NFL fined Bills $20,000, ruling that Williams should have been on the team’s injury report since the start of the season even though he hadn’t missed a practice.

Gailey first revealed to reporters Sept. 10 that Williams had been playing hurt in the Bills’ season-opening 48-28 loss to the N.Y Jets.

Williams recognized he was hurt a couple of days later, saying, “I had a little freak deal one or two weeks ago.”
