Knee injury never had Kyle thinking retirement

He missed the last 10 games of the season and eventually underwent knee surgery. It wasn’t the first time Kyle Williams went under the knife. After 10 seasons in the league however, his latest rehab and recovery never led him to think once about retirement.

In an appearance on Bills flagship station WGR Sporstradio 550, Williams said retirement never crossed his mind.

“This offseason has been tough,” he said. “It’s been hard, but I can’t (retire). I’m such a day-to-day guy. I worry about what I can do today to get better. There are dark days in every rehab where you hit plateaus and you’re thinking you’re not getting any better, but you keep grinding and building and building and building. It hasn’t crossed my mind yet, and as soon as it does I will (retire) because if it crosses your mind that you don’t want to play anymore or you’re done, and you just keep going you’re either going to get yourself hurt or you’ll be a discredit to your teammates.

“I’m not there yet. I don’t plan on being there for a little bit. So I just plan on working and hopefully help this team get to the playoffs and do some special things because I want to be on that field when it happens. That’s what I’ve worked for.”
