Kyle Williams Injury Could End His Season, Per Report

We've been waiting for bad news regarding Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams and his foot injury, and per a Buffalo News report, that bad news may soon be delivered.

The News reports that, per team sources, Williams is likely going to miss the remainder of the 2011 season with an injury believed to be bone spurs in his left heel. Those bone spurs are apparently bothering his Achilles tendon. Williams is scheduled to see a specialist regarding the injury in the next day or two.

Coming into the new year, Williams had missed just two games over the first five years of his pro career. He has already missed three games this year - he hasn't played since Buffalo's Week 5 win over Philadelphia - and, if the report turns out to be true, he could be on his way to missing eight more.

Williams, widely considered Buffalo's best defender, made his first Pro Bowl last season after recording 77 tackles and 5.5 sacks in 2010. If his 2011 season is really over, he'll finish it with just nine tackles and a batted pass.
