Mario Williams injury: Bills DE says wrist to blame for struggles

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

Buffalo Bills defensive end Mario Williams is dealing with a wrist injury, and he cites it as a reason for lacking play this season.

Buffalo Bills defensive end Mario Williams says that a nagging injury to his left wrist has contributed to his struggles thus far in 2012, according to Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News. Short of saying word-for-word that his wrist injury is the only reason for his lacking performance, Williams said that it's contributed to hesitation.

Hesitation, for a defensive player who makes his living on his ability to get to the backfield, can be a truly hampering thing, to be sure. Williams said, regarding the hesitation, "It's on me. That's fine. I know I gotta change that. Believe me, I don't need anybody to tell me that."

Still, in 56 defensive snaps against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, Williams made just two tackles and was virtually invisible on the football field. The Bills lost that game 35-34, and certainly could have used a big game from some players on defense.

The piece quotes defensive end Chris Kelsay, who says that he has no doubt Williams is bothered by a wrist injury, but that he has to "find a way to get healthy." To this point, Williams has not missed any time in practice or in a game because of the injury, which has been known about since Week 2.
