Bills Camp: Where's Mario Williams?

(WGR/AP)  Mario Williams missed his second day of practice, and wasn’t even at on the campus of St. John Fisher Monday
Williams complained of a sore foot and head coach Doug Marrone didn’t have much additional information, “He’s going to be evaluated by our doctors, so he’s off campus being evaluated and I have not heard any report back.”

Marrone has been very vague about this injury. He said, “I tend to get a little nervous about what I’m allowed to say, so I’ll give you guys as much information as I possibly can. It’s the same thing, his foot was sore, we’re not going to make any mistakes about it, we’re going to make sure that everything’s fine and where he is and where he goes, I’m not going to talk about that.”

Williams was motivated upon arriving at camp, saying he wanted to put behind his inconsistent first season in Buffalo, which came after he signed a six-year, $100 million contract with the team in free agency. Williams led the Bills with 10-1/2 sacks, but his performance was hampered in the first half of the season because of a left wrist injury that was surgically repaired in late October.  That injury was originally kept quiet for several days , resulting in a sanction fromt he league.

After acknowledging he was disappointed to miss the opening session, Williams then apologized that he couldn't say anything more.

Williams did not appear to be walking with a limp. He did not participate in any individual or team drills, and spent much of practice watching from the sideline with his helmet on. On several occasions, he was spotted bending over frontward to stretch out his back.

The foot injury came as a surprise after Williams did not indicate he was experiencing any health issues upon reporting to camp on Friday.
