Mario Williams Injury: Bills DE Confirms Wrist Tear

After Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey begged ignorance to an ESPN.com report claiming that defensive end Mario Williams had a torn ligament in his left wrist, Buffalo's $100 million man confirmed that he does, indeed, have that tear.

"The doctor said there’s a slight tear," Williams said on Wednesday (via WGR 550). "I don’t know the severity of it, but obviously it was something that caused me not being able to use it, but you have to ask for exact verbiage from the training staff."

What isn't made clear is whether or not Williams' bye week surgery was conducted to repair said small tear, or simply to alleviate symptoms caused by the tear. Williams insists that the wrist continues to feel better - even as the team has resumed playing games and practicing - but one would think that if a tear still exists, the chances of a more severe injury surfacing increase dramatically.

Somehow, this Williams wrist situation has festered, and remains a situation worth monitoring.
