While doctors have told Bills S Aaron Williams that he can return from his neck injury and continue his NFL career, he told reporters that he plans to mull his future this offseason.
“Yeah, they said I can come back and play. But, they told me that last year and this same thing happened,” Williams said, via WKBW ABC7. “So what happens if I say, ‘yeah, I’m going to play next year,’ and I get the same hit? Will I be here talking to you guys again? Will I be walking? It’s those thoughts that — I don’t sleep. I mean, my mind runs a thousand miles an hour thinking about what I’m going to do.”
Meanwhile, Bills DT Kyle Williams also said he plans to “evaluate everything over the next couple of weeks.”
“As far as a timeline, I don’t really have one,” Williams said, via the Buffalo News. “We’ll kind of go with the flow.”
