  • Bills' Dorian Williams: Will play vs. Jets

    Williams (knee) does not carry an injury designation into Sunday's game versus the Jets.

    Williams was limited at practice Wednesday and Thursday, but he was able to upgrade to full participation Friday to put himself on track to suit up in Week 11. He again projects to start at linebacker for Buffalo on Sunday.

  • Bills' Dorian Williams: Limited with knee issue

    Williams was listed as a limited participant at Wednesday's walkthrough session due to a knee issue, Chris Brown of the Bills Radio Network reports.

    The third-round rookie has been getting more time on defense following teammate Matt Milano's season-ending leg injury, but it hasn't yielded consistent enough playing time to put him on the IDP map. Following a noteworthy 10-tackle outing in Week 6, Williams has fluctuated between zero and 46 percent of the defensive snaps while totaling just 12 tackles over that four-game span. Williams has yet to record his first NFL sack.

  • Bills' Dorian Williams: Rookie shines in primetime

    Williams totaled 10 tackles in the 14-9 win over the Giants on Sunday night.

    The third-round rookie out of Tulane was the choice to take over for All-Pro linebacker Matt Milano, who was lost for the season due to a fractured leg in the Week 5 loss. Williams logged 84 percent of the defensive snaps and was complimented by the coaches after the game for stepping it up as well as for his athleticism. There's going to be a drop-off from Milano to anyone else the Bills might choose to replace him, but how narrow that gap is could determine how much a legit Super Bowl contender the Bills end up being. For now, consider Williams a starter in a young linebackers unit, while the style of defense the team plays gives him some IPD potential.

  • Bills' Dorian Williams: Sees extensive action Sunday

    Williams saw a season-high 29 defensive snaps during Sunday's 25-20 loss to the Jaguars in London, logging five tackles and one pass defensed.

    The rookie out of Tulane may soon be counted on at a whole new level, as teammate Matt Milano is likely out for the season with a broken leg. The Bills don't always have three linebackers on the field, but when they do, Williams has a good chance of being one of them. In any event, with Milano out for the long term, Williams and Tyrel Dodson are the two players most likely to see spikes in production.

  • Bills' Dorian Williams: Looking good for Monday

    Williams (calf) wasn't listed on Buffalo's injury report Thursday.

    The 2023 third-round pick was dealing with a calf injury suffered in late August, but it seems as if he's moved past the issue. Williams spent four years at Tulane, appearing in 43 games and recording 195 tackles, including 27 tackles for loss and 9.5 sacks. Expect the rookie to serve as an important component of the Bills' linebacker corps during the coming season.

  • Bills' Dorian Williams: Battling calf injury

    Williams (calf) didn't practice Wednesday, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

    Williams is expected to occupy at least a reserve linebacker role and contribute on special teams in 2023, though the 2023 third-round draft pick out of Tulane is competing for a starting spot on defense. His quest to win a starting job will be put on hold until Williams' calf heals. Williams' next chance to take the field will come in Saturday's preseason finale against the Bears.

  • Bills' Dorian Williams: Strong preseason debut

    Williams led the Bills with seven total tackles (six solo) in Saturday's preseason win over Indianapolis.

    The third-round rookie is no longer in the running for the open starting middle linebacker spot, but he has a chance to earn a meaningful role on the outside. Stud defender Matt Milano will man one of those spots on a full-time basis, but there's a role for Williams, even if it's as part of a rotation on the other side. Expect him to see a decent amount of action in the team's last two preseason games.

  • Bills' Dorian Williams: Focusing on outside for now

    Williams is expected to work at outside linebacker to start training camp, general manager Brandon Bean told Chris Brown of the Bills' official site Wednesday.

    Williams was the team's third-round pick out of Tulane and is believed to be versatile enough to play either outside linebacker or in the middle. For now, the middle spot is still up for grabs between Tyrel Dodson, Baylon Spector, Terrel Bernard and A.J. Klein. Matt Milano is a star and is guaranteed to start at one outside spot, so that will leave Williams fighting for a meaningful role at the other outside spot, where Klein and veteran pass rusher Leonard Floyd will likely see time as well.
