Williams ailing

Bills nose tackle Kyle Williams did not practice Thursday after injuring his hamstring the day before. It is not known how badly he's hurt. Coach Chan Gailey said there is a chance Williams could practice Friday, but Gailey didn't sound overly optimistic about that.

Williams has been the Bills' most effective defensive lineman, so losing him would be a major blow against a Cincinnati Bengals team looking to get their running game going. His potential absence would mean more playing time for rookie nose tackle Torell Troup, but the team's depth would take a hit because they have no other nose tackles behind Troup.

The Bills' D-line is already going to be short-handed with backup end Spencer Johnson out with his own hamstring injury.
