Mario Williams Blames Slow Start On A Sore Left Wrist

Bills defensive end Mario Williams says the reason behind his slow start this season has been due to a lingering sore left wrist, per Sal Maiorana of the USA Today.

“I’m a hands-on player and it’s all about power in my game,” he said. “It’s just been a little odd having a little nick or whatever and not being able to use it to the full extent, but you know, you gotta play. When you’re out there on Sunday, you gotta play regardless of what’s going on.”

After signing a mega-deal this offseason with the Bills, it was expected that Williams would be a fierce pass rusher like he was when he was with the Texans. With only nine tackles and 1.5 sacks in four games this season, Williams performance has been on the side of disappointing. Williams should have an easier time finding the quarterback this week as the Bills take on the 49ers, who have given up 12 sacks so far this season.
