ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Buffalo defensive end Mario Williams will not play in the Bills' preseason game Friday against the Minnesota Vikings.
Williams complained of soreness after practice Wednesday and joins receivers TJ Graham (groin) and Stevie Johnson (left hamstring) on the sideline. Also not in uniform are corner backs Leodis McKelvin, Justin Rogers and Crezdon Butler, as well as defensive end Kourtnei Brown and offensive lineman Keith Williams.
The Vikings are missing fullback Jerome Felton, who underwent an emergency appendectomy Wednesday and did not travel with the team. Defensive tackle Christian Ballard and corner back Jacob Lacey are also not in uniform.
