Bills coach Sean McDermott announced that Williams would return to the team in 2017, ESPN.com's Mike Rodak reports.

EDGE Analysis

There was some thought that Williams, who will turn 34 in June, could opt for retirement this summer, but after turning in another productive campaign in 2016, the Bills' long-time run stuffer will be back for another season. Williams will carry a hefty $8.3 million cap hit in 2017, but after he churned out 64 tackles and five sacks in 15 games while playing through injury a season ago, it's a price the Bills are likely willing to pay.

Williams (back) did not practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Williams has been working through the injury for several weeks, but rallied to play the last two games. However, the Bills' playoff hopes are officially over, so the team could decide to take it easy with him for this week's finale.

Williams (back) is questionable for Saturday's game against Miami, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Williams missed some practice time this week but was able to return on Thursday and isn't expected to sit out Week 16. He'll look to help shore up the Bills defensive line against the Dolphins running game, who went for 256 yards in the teams' first matchup with one another earlier in the year.

Williams (back) has returned to practice Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

While he's far from fully healthy, we'd be surprised if the veteran didn't play Sunday against the Dolphins. The Bills have a flicker of playoff hopes left, and they'll try to get it right this time against Jay Ajayi, who ran for 214 yards the last time these two teams met.

Williams (back) did not practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Given the time of the season and the balky back that Williams is playing through, we'd be more surprised if he did practice this early in the week. Williams was able to play Sunday in the win over the Browns, and we expect him to practice -- at least on a limited basis -- Thursday or Friday and go at it again Saturday against the Dolphins.

Williams (back) is active for Sunday's game against Cleveland.

EDGE Analysis

The Bills got tore up the entire afternoon by Le'Veon Bell last week without Williams, so his presence after a one-week absence will certainly help as the Bills try to avoid becoming the first team to allow the Browns to flip that season-long "0" to a "1" in the win column.

Williams (back) will likely be a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Browns, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Williams was able to practice on a limited basis Friday, and he remains hopeful to play in Week 15. He figures to rest his back on Saturday before testing the issue prior to game time on Sunday.

Williams (back) is hopeful and plans to play in Sunday's game against the Browns, Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Williams did not practice Wednesday but said that he remains on track to play Sunday barring any immediate setback. And the Bills will really need him back after the Steelers ran all over the Buffalo defense last week for 240 yards. Expect Williams' status to be more clear by Friday.
