Whaley: Karlos Williams sustained concussion

It wasn’t fully recognized by even Karlos Williams himself, but late Sunday night the Bills running back wasn’t feeling well. After an examination on Sunday evening and then again Monday it was discovered that Williams sustained a concussion in the Bills loss to the Giants Sunday. GM Doug Whaley announced the news Tuesday morning in his weekly appearance on Bills flagship station WGR Sportsradio 550.

“We found out late yesterday afternoon that Karlos Williams suffered a concussion,” said Whaley. “He’ll go through that concussion protocol this week. He told our trainers several hours after the game he wasn’t feeling well and our medical staff took a look at him. They put him through further evaluations Monday afternoon and determined that he had a concussion. We’re going to see how he proceeds throughout the week. With the concussion you just don’t know how they’re going to respond.”

Whaley said that Williams is going through the league’s concussion protocol. Williams status for playing on Sunday is certainly up in the air and with starting RB LeSean McCoy also a major question mark for the Titans game, the Bills have just Boobie Dixon and Cierre Wood as healthy running backs.

“We have confidence in the guys that we have in Boobie Dixon and Cierre Wood, who have been here,” said Whaley.

Whaley admitted they will take a look to see what is out there to find replenish the depth at the position. Former Bills RB Bryce Brown is an available free agent and Whaley admitted that he would be a possibility.

Buffalo’s GM did not rule Williams out for Sunday’s game.

“Karlos with that concussion protocol we’ll monitor him day to day and hopefully he’ll be in there at the end of the week,” Whaley said.
