Bills GM Doug Whaley says that Karlos Williams suffered a concussion against the Giants

Whaley went on WGR this morning and announces the team is down another running back.

The health of the Buffalo Bills running back corps took another hit this weekend, according to General Manager Doug Whaley:

Whaley said that Karlos Williams has entered the concussion protocol set up by the NFL and the NFL Player's Association to appropriately deal with head injuries. This came during Sunday's demise to the New York Giants. The independent medical supervision could potentially rule him out of this Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans. 

This setback comes on the heels Sunday's reports that LeSean McCoy may have suffered further damage than what was sustained in the preseason.

The injury situation will certainly cause a backlash against Whaley, who traded fan favorite Fred Jackson and released Bryce Brown in September. Many media members were critical of these moves, given the fact both McCoy and Williams missed significant reps in the preseason. 

With some early success in the first 4 weeks of the season, Williams helped allay concerns with McCoy's apparent reinjury. Now the Bills are scrambling, reportedly trying out some free agent running backs such as Trent Richardson as of Tuesday:

If the roster remains unchanged, Anthony Dixon and Cierre Wood would step into the halfback role in the absence of the two hampered runners.
