Head coach Doug Marrone said he expected the excused Marcell Dareus to be back on campus at St. John Fisher Monday evening. How soon he’ll be able to pass the team’s conditioning test to be cleared for practice is yet to be determined. What is certain is his teammate Mario Williams is eager to get him back alongside him on Buffalo’s defensive line.
“Extremely anxious,” said Williams. “He’s a heck of a player. He’s just a young guy, but at the same time we hold him accountable just like anybody else. Whether you’re in here for 12 or 15 years, a coach, whatever we’re going to hold each other accountable.”
Mario said Dareus has shown he can be accountable before though he would not provide an example to the media.
When asked if he has faith that Dareus will come around and be the Pro Bowl caliber player he can be, Williams answered in the affirmative.
“I can’t speak for everybody else, but I have faith in him,” said Williams. “I can’t put words in somebody else’s mouth on the team, but I have all the faith in him.”
