Bills CB Williams Hopes to be Back in 1-2 Weeks
It was a scary moment for fans of the Buffalo Bills, and certainly moreso for the man donning the number-23 jersey.
Rookie cornerback Aaron Williams had to be taken off the field on a stretcher during the Bills' game against New England in Week Three.
"It lets you know how important the game is, and how fast it can be taken away from you," said the cornerback on Wednesday. "That let me know you must cherish every moment, every play, every game, every practice, because you never know when it might be your last."
That's really been the last we've seen of Williams up until Wednesday when he was riding on the stationary bike during practice to warm-up for some work with the trainers.
With the newest progress, Williams said after practice he's getting closer, and hopes for a return fairly soon.
"Right now, I'm hoping next week, but in actuality it'll probably be around two weeks," said the rookie. "You never know with your body. Your body may say 'Hey, I need another week to get back to where my strength is.'"
That timetable isn't set in stone, however. There are some things that Williams' has to have happen before he gets back out on the practice field.
"There's still some aspects of what I need to do before I start practicing. Getting my strength back, especially my conditioning," he said. "There's still some stuff that's pretty painful, but you've gotta work the pain and soreness out to get where you were before. I just have to keep working at it and go every day 100-percent."
Williams went through a 10-to-15 minute workout with trainers on Wednesday, and said it was pretty painful throughout the session but is going to take it day-by-day.
