ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The father of Buffalo Bills safety Aaron Williams tells The Associated Press his son intends to wait until the offseason to determine whether to continue playing after sustaining his latest neck injury.
Anthony Williams told the AP by phone Thursday that while the topic of retirement has yet to be broached, he intends to involve his entire family in a discussion to "make the best decision that's right for him."
Williams spoke after his son was blindsided and bowled over by a hit from Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry in a 28-25 loss at Miami on Sunday. Williams was taken to the hospital for evaluation, but cleared to travel home with the team.
It's the second consecutive season Williams has been sidelined by a severe neck injury. Coach Rex Ryan on Thursday said Williams is out indefinitely.
Cornerback Stephon Gilmore told the AP that Williams is experiencing numbness in one of his arms. Anthony Williams and the team would not confirm what Gilmore said.
