After one day absence, Bills? Mario Williams returns
As the Buffalo Bills got back on the field for their fifth session of Organized Team Activities, they saw the return of their highest-paid player on the field. Defensive end Mario Williams, who head coach Doug Marrone said was getting checked out on Tuesday, returned to practice on Wednesday.
Although he did not take part in any team drills throughout the day, Williams was back in uniform going through the paces during the positional portion of practice. He had a procedure on his hip during the offseason that has slowed him down at the start of OTAs.
Williams was not the only Bills player to return in some capacity, the team also got back two running backs for practice. Both Bryce Brown and Ronnie Wingo each participated throughout the entirety of practice after missing the last couple of sessions with undisclosed injuries.
A quartet of players worked to the side with trainers during Wednesday’s workout. Linebacker Kiko Alonso, wide receiver Marcus Easley, guard J.J. ‘Unga and cornerback Darius Robinson all could not join the team through the usual paces of work due to injuries.
For the first time, the Bills were without starting left guard Chris Williams at an OTA session. He was joined by defensive tackle Marcell Dareus, defensive end Manny Lawson, defensive tackle Alan Branch and tight end Mike Caussin as those that were not visible on the field Wednesday.
Dareus and Caussin each missed their second straight day, while Lawson and Branch have yet to attend any portion of the team’s offseason workouts over the past month and a half.
The Bills resume practice on Thursday morning for their final one of the week. They’ll have the weekend off before reconvening for the final four days of OTAs next week.
