Orchard Park (WKBW.com) - Bills Defensive End Mario Williams says he feels "way better" after having surgery to address his ailing left wrist. Williams, who had the procedure last Tuesday in Alabama, says he will play against his former team the Houston Texans this Sunday.
"I'm not missing anything", said Williams. "That's why I did it. This is to get better. This is to have healing occur. Which wasn't happening before."
Williams has been bothered by the wrist since the final preseason game and after talking to the Bills training staff decided to address the injury during the teams bye week.
"The biggest thing mentally is knowing that it's not getting any worse. I can use it. Range of motion is already better", said Williams.
"I just had it cleaned up. Whenever I got injured earlier in the year a bunch of junk was in there. That is the reason why I didn't have any motion", continued Williams
Williams has been widely criticized for what has been a slow start to the season. The defensive end was added to address the pass rush but has only 3.5 sacks after signing a 100-million dollar contract.
"Criticism is Criticism. The biggest thing for me are my expectations. Nobody wants me to do better more then me.", said Williams.
"I know this isn't me. I've said that before. I've never had something where it's lingered this long. This has almost been nine weeks now. The biggest thing for me is just being able to rebound in the second part of the season and get after it."
