The Buffalo Bills announced Tuesday that they’ve placed S Aaron Williams on injured reserve and signed WR Percy Harvin to a contract.
Bills HC Rex Ryan admitted that there could still be some long-term concerns for Williams after he took a brutal hit from Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry and was later transported to a hospital.
Williams’ father told the Associated Press that his son will wait until the offseason to determine whether he will continue his NFL career after sustaining his second severe neck injury in as many seasons.
Williams’ father said his son will “make the best decision that’s right for him.”
Williams, 29, is a former second-round pick of the Bills back in 2011. He’s currently in the third year of his five-year, $26,077,844 million contract that includes $14.625 million guaranteed and stands to make a base salary of $3.6 million for the 2016 season.
This season, Williams had appeared in seven games and recorded 20 tackles, a fumble recovery returned for a touchdown and five pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 48 safety out of 85 qualifying players.
