Bills Place LG Chris Williams on IR

The Buffalo Bills will be without starting left guard Chris Williams for the remainder of the season. Williams signed a 4 year contract with the Bills in the off-season.

Chris Williams' first season with the Buffalo Bills is officially over. 

On Saturday, the Bills placed Williams on the injured reserve. Williams came into the season as Buffalo's starting left guard. He started the first three games of the season for Buffalo before reinjuring his back. Williams had missed time in training camp and the preseason with back problems. In the offseason, Williams signed a 4 year/$13.15 million contract. 

Rookie Cyril Richardson has started the last two weeks in Williams' place. The guard out of Baylor has struggled in his first two starts, but the extra experience will certainly help him.

Buffalo filled the vacant roster spot by promoting safety Kenny Ladler from the practice squad. The undrafted free agent had a strong training camp and may see time on special teams. Buffalo's starting safeties, Aaron Williams and Da'Norris Searcy, were both on the injury report this week, so it makes sense to add depth at the position.
