Bills defensive end Mario Williams revealed after their loss to the Jets on Sunday that his poor performance was due to a wrist injury he suffered a few weeks back.

Buffalo Bills defensive end Mario Williams apparently suffered a wrist injury two weeks prior to the team's season-opening loss against the New York Jets, but it was not disclosed until after Sunday's game. That injury offers an explanation to why Williams performed poorly on Sunday.

When speaking to the local media, Williams commented about his injury:

"I had a little bit of a freak deal a couple of weeks ago," Williams said. "Unfortunately, it was right before the regular season. Like I said, by any means necessary. I've got to take care of it, put everything to the side, and try to get to the quarterback."

Williams said to relax, it's only one game. He'll get to the quarterback. The Bills will get their sacks, by whatever means necessary. "I appreciate everybody pointing the fingers, and they should be," he said.

Williams is the highest paid defensive player in the league and with that come high expectations. With Williams fully participating in practice last week, as well as this week, the wrist injury must not be all that serious.
