Buffalo defensive end Mario Williams is considering surgery to repair a left wrist injury that he claims has led to his slow start to the season (Credit: AP Photo) After signing a six-year, $100 million dollar contract this off-season with the Buffalo Bills defensive end Mario Williams has been nothing but disappointing. Earlier this season, Williams told reporters that he had an injury to his left wrist that was not allowing him to get to the quarterback. According to Tim Graham of the Buffalo News, Williams is considering trying to get surgery on his wrist to fix that problem during the team’s bye week. “I need to play better, and I need to get healthy,” Williams said after Sunday’s game. “It’s No. 1 on my point. “I can say this and you can take it however you want to take it, but it really don’t matter to me. I really don’t care what you think. At the end of the day I know I need to get physically back into things so I’m not hesitating.” Head coach Chan Gailey was vague when asked about whether or not the wrist injury is affecting his play “He’s the one that’s got to answer to that,” Gailey said. “I can’t tell you whether he’s being affected by it at all, or a little bit, or what it is. I can’t tell.” If Williams misses any time it could be more beneficial to the team in the long run. A healthy Williams over the rest of the season and the next five are important to Buffalo’s success as a defensive unit.
