Williams Ruled Out
Sunday, Jan. 3
The Bills announced Williams' season is over as he cannot return to the matchup with the Jets.
Williams Emerged As Valuable Backup in Rookie Season
Williams had performed admirably in a backup role with the Bills this season, rushing for 493 yards and six touchdowns.
Although Buffalo acquired former Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy in an offseason trade, Williams had been a part of the offense since day one.
The rookie scored at least one touchdown on the ground or through the air the first six games of his career, tying an NFL record.
He’s obviously got a lot of special qualities about him. He’s a great kid, too, by the way. But number one he’s an explosive athlete who has size, speed, vision, burst. He’s got all of that. You don’t luck into six straight games with a touchdown. You don’t luck into that. This guy has got receiving skills. He’s got a couple of touchdowns out of the backfield, but he just blows by guys. He sets them up.
This is the second injury for Williams. He missed three games earlier in the season after suffering a concussion in Week 4.
Mike Gillislee and Bobbie Dixon will see increased carries with Williams and McCoy out.
