Buffalo Bills' Mario Williams battling plantar fasciitis

Ian Rapoport was on NFL Network’s GameDay Morning show and reported that the Buffalo Bills defensive end Mario Williams is suffering from plantar fasciitis. Williams has missed roughly a week of training camp to get his foot examined by Dr. Robert Anderson. Plantar fasciitis is painful and the same injury that safety Jairus Byrd is dealing with.

This comes on the heels of reports that his foot was “expected to be fine.”

Williams was practicing this week as well.

Plantar fasciitis is painful injury but one that can be played through. Williams is expected to play through the pain for the Bills today but it will be interesting to watch how it affects his productivity on the field.

The Bills are opening the season against the New England Patriots and that matches up left end Williams with right tackle Sebastian Vollmer.
