Bills All-Pro defensive tackle Kyle Williams is expected to miss the rest of the 2011 season, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.
Williams sustained a foot injury in Week 5 that has kept him out for the last three games.
According to Skurski, the LSU product is believed to have bone spurs that are irritating his Achilles’ tendon.
A 2010 Pro Bowler, Williams signed a four-year, $30 million contract extension in August. That extension included $14.75 million in guaranteed money, $7 million of which in 2012-13 that is guaranteed for injury only.
In 83 career games, Williams has 301 tackles and 13.5 quarterback sacks.
In addition to Williams, Skurski adds that kicker Rian Lindell is expected to miss four-to-six weeks with a right shoulder injury incurred while tackling Jets kick returner Joe McKnight at the start of the second half on Sunday.
Lindell was available to kick a 24-yard field goal, but punter Brian Moorman handled the kickoff duties for the rest of the game.
Lindell has played in 180 consecutive games, the second-longest streak among active NFL kickers.
