Ok, it always amazes me how professional athletes seem to get these issues by walking through college dorms.  The report is out ... Mario Williams held out of practice because the poor multi-millionaire has a sore foot.  WHERE IN THE WORLD did he pick that up?  Were they playing kick the can in the dorms?  So big Mario your toes are hurting you ... don't you think that you have an obligation to at least show your face on DAY ONE of training camp?  Aren't there some drills that you can participate with your foot in an ice bucket?  What about being supportive of your teammates?  This is not a good omen ... his poor little footsy.  My goodness ... how many of us go to work with some minor issues and then take care not to aggravate what ails us ... not Mario. http://blogs.buffalo...-has-sore-foot/

I saw him out there today. He was at least out there. Don't remember what drills if any he was in on but he was there and dressed for practice.

9/10 on the overreaction meter

Foster is doing the same thing for Houston.

Yawn.

With all of the day one injuries out there I'm just fine with Mario sitting safe and sound on the sideline.

Foot and toe injuries can be the worst kind for football players.  Jack Lambert's career ended because of turf toe.

I have no issues with MW sitting out the first practice of the entire preseason.

Bills fans who have been around a while should be used to our stud DE being AWOL at camp...as long as the results are there when the live bullets fly, I'm good.

I'm callin you're trolling.  There's no way you'd be stupid enough to compare an NFL defensive lineman "going to work" with a sore foot to someone sitting behind a desk.  And what is the sense in pushing a seasoned veteran through a sore foot the first day of training camp?  Frankly, I don't give a crap about training camp, especially on the defensive side of the ball.  My #1 concern is that the important players are all healthy on September 8th.

I'm with you on this.  I think it's ridiculous.  After a blockbuster contract, he had a lackluster year.  The story is he is coming back pissed and focused on football now with all the personal baggage taken care of and in the rear view.  Then on day one of training camp, he's sitting out.  That's garbage and not leadership.  My one concern is that his rookie year he had significant problems with foot injuries.

This is a really weak post. All of one's leg explosion depends upon having healthy toes, and turf toe can set players back in a serious way. Toe injuries really suck (plus they tend to be nagging), and Williams had some his rookie season in Houston.

What's the point of playing in camp if you're hurt and require rest to heal? How is it "leadership" to play in camp so that you're at 70 percent come the season opener?

YOu guys need to realize that him being held out might not have been his decision.  He probably reported it to a trainer as he should they notify the coaches and then they held him out.

We are all calling it a toe injury, but the report says foot... So that encompasses more than toes as well. I don't see why it matters he didn't practice. Now if he was put on the PUP list.... That would be a little scary
