DT Williams on solid road to recovery -

"I’ve had a bone spur in my heel, under my Achilles (tendon) since college," Williams said. "It’s been there for years. Over time, it’s just gotten bigger and bigger and worse and worse. The last couple years it’s just been pretty steady in the sense of hurting. This year it just came to a head. It was eating away at my Achilles."

Choice eager to make good with Bills -
"I had to run with a purpose Sunday and that’s how I am and finally being healthy is the main thing," he said. "I went from starting, to getting hurt, to bouncing around to a couple of places still injured. Now being healthy and being somewhere where I can go out and perform… I understand what they expect of me and they know what I do, which is play with all I’ve got. Now it’s time to play."

"I talked to Aaron ( Rodgers)," Harrell told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. "He told me I should stay. Maybe that was a selfish reason because he and I get along so well and he's pretty comfortable right now. I trust him and he wouldn't advise me in the wrong direction. I'm excited to be here. Having him definitely helps, not only because we get along so well, but he's such a great player and he can do everything he can to teach you. It's a great place to learn and develop."
