The Buffalo Bills announced that they’ve officially placed S Aaron Williams on short-term injured reserve and signed S Josh Bush.
Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports that the Bills are planning to place S Aaron Williams (neck) on injured reserve, possibly with the designation to return.
- Garafolo adds that Williams still has some lingering effects from the injury he suffered against the Patriots a few weeks ago.
- Williams is still being evaluated, which is why short-term injured reserve remains a possibility.
During the Bills’ Week 2 game, Williams was taken off on a stretcher after suffering a neck injury. He was later released from the hospital, but it appears as though there are still some concerns about him moving forward.
Should Buffalo elect to place Williams on short-term injured reserve, it would cost him eight weeks.
Williams, 25, is in the second year of his five-year, $26,077,844 million contract that included $14.625 million guaranteed. He stands to make base salaries of $1.375 million (2015), $2.575 million (2016), $3.6 million (2017), and $3.8 million (2018) over the remainder of the contract.
This season, Williams has recorded 15 tackles, one interception and three pass defenses for the Bills over the course of three games.
