Injury Bug slowly hitting the Bills
Big Mike leads the list
Big Mike leads the list

Bills right OT Mike Williams, fined last week by the team for missing a training camp session, missed practice again Tuesday.

Though this time it's different as he was held out of practice because of an apparent injury.

Williams was wearing a protective boot on his right foot Tuesday. Coach Mike Mularkey claimed that the offensive lineman had sustained a strained arch that occured during stretching.

This just adds to the problems for Mike Williams who looked like he was turning the corner after a bad first week of camp. As Williams had started working part-time with the Bills' first-string offense after being demoted on the first day of camp. For more on Williams' problems feel free to read the related story on him being the early story of training camp.

Others missing time were linemate Chris Villarrial (though why he did is not known at this time), LB Dominique Stevenson (knee), CB Mark Graham (hamstring) and RB Joe Burns (ankle) have also been sidelined with injuries in recent days.

On the bright side DT Sam Adams has been back on the field after missing time last week with a hamstring injury. Fellow DT Justin Bannan sustained a broken hand in the practice against the Browns but has been working through it, as he could be on the bubble of making the team's final 53 after the additions of Oliver Gibson and Tim Anderson in the offseason.
