Bills starting DTs hobbling

Both of Buffalo’s starting defensive tackles are hobbling with knee injuries, but the chances of them playing might not be as dire as it looks.

Both Kyle Williams and Marcus Stroud did not practice due to knee injuries. Williams is three weeks removed from suffering a grade two plus MCL sprain. It’s not all the way, but it’s close. Williams did some light work on the side.

“I thought they went pretty good,” said Williams. “Better than it was on Monday. It’s not fully there yet, but it felt pretty good. I feel encouraged over it. There are still some positions that I get in that are pretty vulnerable for the ligament, but all in all it felt pretty good. Hopefully it’ll continue to progress and heal as quickly as it has.”

Stroud sustained his knee injury in the Tennessee game according to interim head coach Perry Fewell. But Fewell is optimistic Stroud will be ready to play on Sunday.

“With Marcus just I think (it happened) last Sunday in the ball game,” said Fewell. “It’s nothing that we were shocked by. He’s played a lot of snaps. So it’s just day to day with him. I feel strongly that Marcus will be ready, but it’s day to day.”
