Some good news, although there has been no official word from the Bills.
Kyle Williams’ knee injury, according to reports, might not have been as bad as it looked awhen he went down in second quarter of Friday night’s win over the Browns.
Williams’ right knee and leg were rolled up during a 19-yard run by Carlos Hyde.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Saturday morning Williams’ ACL was spared and he could return this season.
While the #Bills await test results for veteran DL Kyle Williams, who suffered a knee injury last night, the early word is that his ACL was spared. If the MRI confirms, it would mean Williams could return this season.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 18, 2018
After suffering the injury, the veteran defensive tackle walked off under his own power and was seen leaving the stadium with his right leg in a walking brace. Head Sean McDermott will likely provide an update when he meets with the media on Sunday.
That’s when we’ll also likely get a clearer picture as to how much time quarterback AJ McCarron will miss after he suffered a broken collar bone in Cleveland.
The #Bills did, in fact, lose AJ McCarron to a hairline fracture, throwing their QB battle into flux. He’s going to miss several weeks, but no exact timeline https://t.co/sLNAdhghbI— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 18, 2018
Punter Cory Carter suffered an ACL tear, after getting run into on a punt in the fourth quarter of Friday’s win over the Browns.
