Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams has a torn hamstring and may be shut down for the rest of the season, according to Dan Hanzus of NFL.com.

Previous reports indicated that the Bucs were concerned about Williams' health and how it would affect his availability going forward in the season. Williams says that the original injury occurred against the Cardinals in Week 4 of the season, but he played in two more games before the tear was discovered.

King: Mario Williams, distraction-free, realizing his potential as top pass rusher Williams signed a six-year extension with Tampa Bay this offseason worth $40 million dollars.
