Williams rehab right on schedule

---Bills defensive coordinator and assistant head coach Dave Wannstedt said Thursday that defensive tackle Kyle Williams is on schedule to return from a bone spurs injury to his left foot. Williams, who said he should be ready by training camp, missed most of last season due to the injury.

"Kyle was in town last week and he came back just for his checkups and everything is right on schedule,'' said Wannstedt, who spoke to the media on Thursday at One Bills Drive. "There has not been a setback in any form or fashion. When he’s going to be cleared to do something and how much, I don’t know, but we’re looking forward to him having a great year, we really are.''

Wannstedt also gave an update on cornerback Terrence McGee (knee), who the coach said might take a little bit longer to return than Williams, but a source told The News that McGee expects to receive medical clearance by May.

"No negative reports, when (McGee) will be cleared," Wannstedt said. "I think Kyle will probably be a little bit ahead of him because of the timing and the type of injury but really with the good news was the injuries that we had were relatively early in the year for the most part and it gave us some extra time from a recovery standpoint in the offseason so that we have not had any negative reports, by that I mean if the guy is behind schedule or had setbacks that might prevent him from being ready."
