Williams questionable for Sunday

Posted Nov 19, 2010

One of Buffalo’s top three  tacklers on defense is questionable for Sunday’s game at Cincinnati. Defensive tackle Kyle Williams was given the 50-50 designation along with FB Corey McIntyre and OL Cordaro Howard after Friday’s practice by head coach Chan Gailey.

“All of them are questionable, but I have faith that all three have a decent chance of playing on Sunday,” said Gailey.

Williams suffered a hamstring injury in Wednesday’s practice and was unable to practice Thursday. On Friday however, the interior defender was moving around well giving the impression that he’s likely to suit up Sunday in Cincinnati.

McIntyre, who is dealing with an ankle injury has improved as the week has gone on as he recovers from an ankle injury suffered in last week’s win over Detroit. He did not practice Wednesday, was limited on Thursday and practiced again on Friday.

If for some reason McIntyre can’t go, Buffalo would presumably need to make a roster move to replace the lone fullback on the roster.

“We’ll have to look and see,” said Gailey. “If Corey can go 100 percent there’s a good chance that we won’t have to make a move.”

McIntyre is also the team's second leading tackler on special teams.

Cordaro Howard is still working his way back from a shoulder injury suffered in Week 9. Mansfield Wrotto is expected to start at right tackle, with Howard to serve in a reserve capacity at best.
