For the first time in three years Bills Pro Bowl DT Kyle Williams will enter the offseason with a clean bill of health. After back-to-back offseasons of Achilles surgery, Williams has no surgical procedures this winter. That has him confident that his ninth NFL season will be one that he’ll enter the healthiest come next spring.
“I feel good,” said Williams. “The thing is I’m going to have a full offseason for the first time in three years, which I’m excited about. Coming into next year is probably going to be the healthiest I’ve ever been.”
Bills head coach Doug Marrone lightened Williams’ practice load during the season with the intent to keep his veteran DT from over working the surgically repaired achilles. According to Williams the timetable for the achilles to be full strength went through to the end of the season.
“I took Wednesdays off this year because the full healing on the surgery I had is nine to 10 months,” he said. “Well I went to training camp at six (months) and I’m at the 10-month point now to where it should be fully healed. I put a season of work on it and get an offseason of training and rehab on it I should be full strength and as healthy as I’ve ever been going into my ninth year, which gets me excited about it.”
Williams is expected to play in the Pro Bowl on Jan. 26th.
