Bills WR Mike Williams 'fully' healthy for start of training camp

Saturday July 19th, 2014

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Mike Williams declared himself "fully ready to go" for training camp," Mark Gaughan of The Buffalo News reported on Saturday. Williams went on injured reserve last season in Week 9 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers due to a torn hamstring.

The four-year veteran, who is a Buffalo native and played collegiately at Syracuse, caught 215 passes for 2,947 yards and 25 touchdowns for Tampa Bay before he was traded to the Bills in the offseason for a sixth-round pick.

"I’m fully ready to go," Williams said after Saturday's conditioning workouts at St. John Fisher College. "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. 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 didn't miss a game his first three years in the league and averaged 64 catches for 910 yards and eight touchdowns those seasons.
