Mario Williams was chastised in the media for his lackluster performance in the season opener against the New York Jets.

But Williams apparently has been dealing with a minor wrist injury, according to what Coach Chan Gailey told the Buffalo News. The injury is minor enough that it isn't even listed on the injury report.

In talking about the injury, Williams said, "I had a little bit of a freak deal a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately, it was right before the regular season. Like I said, by any means necessary. I've got to take care of it, put everything to the side, and try to get to the quarterback."
