Rex concerned about Kyle’s availability

DT Kyle Williams did not practice Friday due to back problems and is questionable for Sunday’s game. Head coach Rex Ryan admits the defense may not have their veteran leader this weekend.

“I’m concerned. I think it was last night it locked up on him,” said Ryan. “We’ll have to see how that goes, but that’s obviously a big concern.”

If Williams cannot go it’s likely that Jerel Worthy steps in for him on run downs and Leger Douzable on pass downs.

“Luckily we have Marcell back. We have Douzable. We’ll be fine with that group,” said Ryan. “Worthy will have to step up in a role. We activated Coleman last week, so he’ll be up too. We’re fortunate that we’re pretty healthy in that spot. It’s hard to replace Kyle, but we’ll do the best we can if we have to.”

Kyle Williams is currently fourth on the team in tackles and tied for second in tackles for loss.

Brandon Spikes did not practice on Friday due to illness and is also questionable.
