Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams is looking forward to the team's long-awaited bye weekend.

It will give Williams an opportunity to put his feet up - his surgically repaired yet still sore right foot in particular.

''I need it,'' Williams said Monday, a day after playing a key role in a 37-14 win over the New York Jets.

Williams normally gets Wednesdays off each week to rest his foot. Now he'll get an entire seven days before Buffalo (4-7) returns to practice next week to prepare to host Atlanta in the Bills' annual ''home'' game at Toronto on Dec. 1.

Coach Doug Marrone is on board with giving his players a break. He's limited the schedule to conditioning sessions and team meetings before the players depart Wednesday.
