Bills' Mike Williams limited by leg injury during workouts

Throughout all of the Organized Team Activities and the three-day minicamp, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Mike Williams wasn’t getting as many reps during practice as was expected for a player with his talent level. The reason for his slow start has now been unveiled.

“We started off where, they threw me out there and I was just going every rep, and then the leg started getting to me,” Williams said, referring to a previous injury. “Then they started holding me back more and more, but then I started getting my leg back, they were giving me more reps. It was really the leg, but I should be 100-percent by camp.”

The injury that ended his season prematurely in Tampa Bay during the 2013 season was a torn hamstring, and one that he had a procedure on. Now with a substantial amount of time off from practices, Williams is hoping for his leg to get back in order by the time training camp rolls around.

“I'm almost there. I keep telling them I'm at 80-percent, they're telling me I'm at 70-percent. We're going back and forth, but, I think I'm getting there,” he said. “With this month right now until camp, I think I'll be 100-percent coming into camp.”

Williams had been seen in recent weeks losing out on some first-team reps after starting out with the top unit at the beginning of OTAs. On Thursday, the team’s final mandatory minicamp practice, the Buffalo-native was sprinkled into a few first-team reps during three wide receiver sets.

The Bills acquired Williams this offseason from Tampa Bay for a sixth-round pick.

another one of "Those"
looks like more trouble than he is worth? what was Marrone thinking of when he wasted a draft pick on this Bum? I'd take anyone else like a Hogan who shows "heart" when he plays -Buffalo has tooo many "good" players but they arenot productive- let's hope Williams can prove he is worth the time and trouble

Low risk and high reward for Williams. I suspect he will be fine by preseason camp and expect him to have a bigger and better season then Stevie Johnson.

What an ignorant comment
Remember the movie Rudy? Rudy had heart, but like Hogan, lacked the skill to play at the next level. We need skill players with actual skill, nor just heart. Otherwise all that "heart" will lead to"heartbreak".
