Williams suffered a suspected concussion in Thursday's practice, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW reports.

EDGE Analysis

This comes as a sigh of relief for Bills fans, as it originally appeared like Williams suffered a neck injury. However, the team will is still likely to be cautious with their veteran defensive tackle if he did indeed suffer a concussion. Don't expect him back on the field until all of his symptoms have passed.

Williams was activated off the PUP Monday and is expected to practice, Chris Brown of Buffalobills.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bills GM Doug Whaley said from the start that he felt Williams could be ready for Week 1, and with this activation, that looks to be the case. Buffalo's defense struggled in the 10 games Williams missed with injury last season, and should he stay healthy this time around, his presence should help elevate the team's young defensive unit in 2016 back to the level it once was.

Williams will start camp on the active/physically unable to perform list after undergoing season-ending knee surgery last season., ESPN's Mike Rodak reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Buffalo defense suffered a significant drop-off in the 10 games Williams missed last season due to various injuries. While he's on the tail end of a fine career, the team could really use his veteran presence and relentlessness to help a young D try to turn things around. Bills GM Doug Whaley feels Williams can be ready for Week 1 with some limited practice time this season. said the team's priority is to get Williams healthy and ready for Week 1.

Williams (knee) will not be participating in OTA practices this week and won't be on the field for mandatory minicamp, BuffaloBills.com reports. "You know I think we're just going to kind of gradually build on every day through OTAs, even into training camp," said Williams. "The main goal circled is making sure we're ready to go in September. How much or how little of training camp? I don't know. I don't think that plan has been totally put together yet. But definitely gearing toward getting ready to play when it matters."

EDGE Analysis

Williams is expected to start at right defensive end as he enters his 11th NFL season. However, his age, unfamiliarity in Rex Ryan's 3-4 defense, and the fact that he'll be coming off a major injury all work in unison to drive down his previously high IDP value. At best, he'd be a healthy, productive member of an improved defense, but probably a guy that gets his play time monitored or subbed out in certain packages.

Williams, about to enter his 11th season, says his surgically repaired knee has healed, BuffaloBills.com reports. "It's going great. I'm getting back into full-fledged working out," Williams told the John Murphy Show. "It was slow going at the beginning. But it's moved along well and now I'm getting ready for a football season now rather than rehabilitation. That's always a good thing."

EDGE Analysis

Even though Williams struggled in Rex Ryan's new defense, the Buffalo defense had a hard time when he went down with an injury. They'll welcome him back as an experienced starter with strong leadership skills - another area where the team missed Williams - but he's far enough along in his career where the Bills may make a high draft choice to boost the defensive line.

Williams (knee) will return to the Bills on a restructured deal, The Buffalo News reports.

EDGE Analysis

A knee injury cost Williams the last 10 games of the season in 2015 and may have cost the Bills a legitimate shot at their first playoff season since 1999. The longest-tenured Bill will turn 33 this summer, but he's still one of the league's better interior linemen when healthy and may be the team's best locker room presence. His ability to adapt to Rex Ryan's defense remains in question, however.

The Bills placed Williams (knee) on injured reserve Tuesday, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Williams will miss the season due to a surgical procedure on his knee, so the Bills decided to place him on injured reserve to open up a roster spot, which was filled by fellow defensive tackle T.J. Barnes. It remains to be seen if Williams will play for the Bills again next season, as the team could opt to cut him to save some cap space.

Williams is slated to undergo season-ending left knee surgery, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Williams, who hasn't played since Oct. 18, has been slow to recover from a meniscus injury and will thus turn to a procedure that should enable him to return to the playing field well in advance of the 2016 season.

Williams (knee) is likely headed for IR.

EDGE Analysis

While such a move has yet to be officially made by the Bills, given that this comes directly from coach Rex Ryan, it seems a likely outcome. In six games this season, Williams has recorded 14 tackles and a sack, modest IDP numbers, but the DT's expected absence moving forward nonetheless represents a big hit to the Bills' overall team D.
