The veteran limped off after a Cleveland Browns player rolled on his leg

Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams was injured in the second quarter of the team’s second preseason game. A Cleveland Browns player fell into Williams, who was engaged with an offensive lineman. The player rolled on Williams’s right leg. Williams remained on the ground for several minutes with trainers working on the leg before he limped off the field.

The Bills run defense has looked porous so far in tonight’s game, with Cleveland continuously gashing the Bills both inside the tackles and outside. Losing one of the team’s best defensive players for any length of time would be a blow to the unit, but losing a leader like Williams for any length of time would be especially problematic for the team.

Williams headed to the locker room, according to Joe Buscaglia. He was walking under his own power, but with a noticeable limp. When more is known regarding Williams and the injury, we will be sure to update you all. For now, we’ll just have to hope that it’s nothing serious.
