Original story: There was a scary moment during the Buffalo Bills game this afternoon. With a few minutes remaining in the third quarter, starting safety Aaron Williams was taken off the field in an ambulance after suffering what the team called a neck injury. He was transported to a local hospital according to the CBS broadcast.
Williams dove in an attempt to stop a touchdown score from New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman. He landed on top of Edelman and immediately looked like he was in pain. He took off his helmet and CBS cameras were able to get a close look at him talking to trainers. It was not immediately apparent that it was a serious injury.

Williams was replaced in the lineup by Bacarri Rambo. Obviously, we wish Williams the best in his recovery.
