Bills could activate Mike Williams this week


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) The Bills could activate receiver Mike Williams for Week 7, according to ESPN.

Williams was a surprise scratch last weekend, and was expected to be a healthy scratch again. That could change after receiver Marquise Goodwin injured himself during Thursday's practice. The extent of Goodwin's injury is not known at this time. 


Report: Bills WR Mike Williams earns first-team reps this week


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Embattled Bills wideout Mike Williams, who was a healthy scratch on Sunday, has received first-team reps in practice this week, according to the team website.

Williams, who has expressed discontent over a lack of playing time and has received permission to seek a trade, had been a productive player earlier in his career with Tampa Bay. But he has just eight catches for 142 yards and one touchdown so far this season. He has gained 11 yards or less through the air in three of the five games in which he's played.


Mike Williams says he wants to stay with Buffalo


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2014) Bills wide receiver Mike Williams said Wednesday his agent took it upon himself to seek permission to explore a trade after Williams was a healthy scratch Week 6 against the Patriots.

"I always wanted to be here," Williams said, per the team's official website. "This is my hometown. It’s somewhere where I always wanted to be. I just have to fight to be one of the top 46 right now."

Williams said he was "disappointed" he was inactive last week, but added it has given him the incentive to prove to the coaches he should be active Week 7 against the Vikings.

"I keep on playing for the Bills, keep on practicing hard. Try to win scout team player of the week," Williams said. "I won scout team player (two weeks ago), I would’ve won it if we won this past week. I’ll try to win it this week. I was on scout team again (Wednesday). I didn’t change my routine. I got on the scout team because I wanted to be on scout team. I wanted to do it. They didn’t put me on scout team. I just wanted to be on all the scout team if I’m not going to be getting that many reps (on offense)."

Williams was inactive Week 6 against the Patriots, and after expressing his disappointment over the decision via social media, his agent, Hadley Engelhard, called the team to request permission to seek a trade.

"When that stuff happened and it went down on Saturday, Mike was disappointed as any player would be. But I thought he handled it very professionally, in my conversations with him," Marrone said. "I just heard about it coming down -- because I've been in meetings all day -- about his agent called. Mike hasn't communicated anything like that to me. I've had zero problems with him."

Mike Williams says he's fully recovered from hamstring injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/19/2014) Bills receiver Mike Williams underwent conditioning drills at the start of training camp without any reported setbacks. The newly acquired receiver told the Buffalo News on Saturday that he's fully recovered from his hamstring injury.


"I'm fully ready to go," Williams said. "I trained this whole offseason. There was really no offseason for me. I kind of had to get my leg better. I had to get back to feeling like Mike again, like my mom always tells me. Today running that conditioning test made me feel like I was Mike again."

Williams finished the season with the Bucaneers on injured reserve because of hamstring surgery and was held out of offseason training activities with his new club after the trade. Williams, who is two years removed from a 1,000-yard campaign, will fight to be the team's No. 3 receiver.
