Rex Ryan said Thursday there are “long term concerns” about the recent neck injury suffered by safety Aaron Williams.
His family, apparently, agrees.
Aaron’s father Anthony told the AP that his son will wait until after the season to determine when he will play football again.
Aaron’s entire family will be involved to “make the best decision that’s right for him.”
Williams missed all but three games in 2015 and had neck surgery in the offseason after getting hurt the second game of that season.
The most recent injury was the result of an illegal crackback block by Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry Sunday.
Landry was penalized 15 yards in the game. According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, he was also fined $24,309 by the NFL this week for the hit. He will not be suspended.
None of the reported parameters of the punishment would be a surprise.
