The Buffalo Bills won't be getting defensive tackle Kyle Williams back this season. Ty Dunne of the Buffalo News reported on Friday that Rex Ryan stated that Williams is likely headed to the IR because his knee hasn't responded to treatment.
The defensive tackle said the following on his injury:
Williams added that the injury is meniscus related and that he should be ready to play next season and has no intention of retiring.
While Williams plans to come back in 2016, the question of whether the Bills should keep him on their roster needs to be asked. He was struggling this season in Rex Ryan's defense and Williams will be 33 years old. Spotrac recently had an article about possible cap casualties and this is what they wrote regarding Williams:
"Williams has been excellent when healthy, but the Bills simply might need to get younger and cheaper in some facets to keep their recent success going. Especially if Tyrod Taylor needs to be extended. Buffalo can clear $5M in space per his release."
Williams has been with the Bills since the team drafted him in fifth round of the 2006 NFL draft, but it may be time for both sides to move in 2016.
