Buffalo Bills defensive end Mario Williams has returned to
practice. He participated in Buffalo’s defensive line drills during Saturday’s
training camp session, but he continues to be held out of contact drills as he
recovers from his foot injury, according to WGR550’s Joe Buscaglia and
Mario Williams went through the install portion of practice. A tiny step forward. #Bills

Contact Drills now. Mario Williams helmet off. Looks to be a spectator. Sore foot is a pain.

Williams had been away from the team for several days
following his foot injury. The extent of the ailment was unknown for some time,
as Bills head coach Doug Marrone had little to offer questioning reporters. It
was finally revealed that the injury wasn’t expected to be severe, as Dr. James
Andrews told Williams the ailment would recover with treatment and rest.
At this point, it seems like the Bills will take things slow
with Williams as they ease him back into full-contact drills. They could also
elect to sideline him through the start of the preseason in an effort to keep
him healthy for the start of the regular campaign.
