Report: Bills rookie RB Karlos Williams could miss several weeks

BY foxsports • August 18, 2015

The Buffalo Bills have sustained several injuries at the running back position, depleting what was a big group of talented backs. Fred Jackson and Bryce Brown are both out with hamstring injuries, while Anthony Dixon will miss a significant amount of time with a calf ailment.

Now, the Bills will have to add promising rookie Karlos Williams to the long list of injured backs.

Williams was mysteriously absent from Monday's practice with what was an undisclosed issue that landed him in the hospital. While the Bills did not say what was wrong with the rookie, one source according to the Buffalo News says it is "serious" and could cause him to miss several weeks.

This is the last thing that the Bills want to hear after the way Williams has played in camp and in the team's first preseason game. He was on track to take over the No. 2 running back spot with the other veterans sidelined, but that will be put on hold for now. After their game against the Carolina Panthers, Ryan said Williams was "better than OK in the game" and that he's been "impressed with him throughout camp."

To counteract the devastating injury, the Bills signed running back Ricky Seale on Tuesday.
