WR Mike Williams says his hamstring is full go for start of training camp


Bills veteran receiver Mike Williams, acquired in the offseason trade with Tampa Bay, said he is fully healthy to start training camp. Williams sat out the later stages of spring practices to rest a hamstring that had undergone surgery last year. He landed on the injured reserve list in Week Nine last season due to the torn hamstring.

"I’m fully ready to go," Williams said after Saturday's conditioning workouts on the St. John Fisher College training camp fields. "I trained this whole offseason. There was really no offseason for me. I kinda had to get my leg better. I had to get back to feeling like Mike again, like my mom always tells me. Today running that conditioning test made me feel like I was Mike again."

"At the start of camp, just did the conditioning test and I feel real good," Williams said. "I feel great. I feel I got an A-plus, if there was a grade for it. I feel I’m ready to go."

Williams, the Buffalo Riverside High product, averaged 64 catches for 910 yards his first three NFL seasons. The Bills are counting on him to add size and quality to the receiving corps.
