A few weeks ago, Ryan said that Williams was a “50/50” to return this year, but it became clear that it was unlikely he would be able to return.
Williams sustained a PCL injury close to a month ago that was expected to keep him out of the lineup for 3-4 weeks.
Williams, 32, signed a three-year, $22.95 million contract with the Bills back in March. He stands to make base salaries of $4.8 million (2015), $7 million (2016), and $10.5 million (2017) over the remainder of the contract.
This season, Williams recorded 14 tackles and a sack for the Bills’ defense over the course of six games. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 30 defensive tackle out of 67 qualifying players.
