Buffalo Bills defensive back Aaron Williams has been released from the hospital after suffering a scary neck injury in Sunday's game against the New England Patriots. Williams was loaded onto a stretcher and into an ambulance on the field. The Bills announced that Williams suffered a neck injury, and was immobilized on the stretcher before being taken off.

Fortunately, Williams has full movement in all of his extremities, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Williams is still waiting the results of a CT scan and MRI. Williams' family confirmed that he had full motion.

Williams is the Bills' starter at free safety opposite Corey Graham. Bacarri Rambo is the primary backup, and was already getting some playing time as Williams was penalized twice in the game. Rambo has played in 18 games over the course of his career, with a pair of interceptions for Buffalo after he joined the team in 2014.

A second-round pick by the Bills in 2011, Williams has 227 tackles, two forced fumbles and seven interceptions in 50 career games with the team.
