PITTSFORD -- Buffalo Bills pass-rusher Mario Williams left training camp reportedly to get a second opinion on his injured foot, and the follow-up examination showed no significant problem.
ProFootballTalk.com and Fox Sports 1 reporter Mike Garafolo tweeted a few minutes ago Williams should be fine.

Second opinion on Bills' Mario Williams reveals no serious damage to his foot. Expected to be fine.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) July 30, 2013
NFL players are entitled to a second medical opinion if they inform the team in advance.
So what was the big deal? The Bills simply could have told reporters "Mario is getting a second opinion on his foot, and until the result from that examination comes back we're going to refrain from any comment about the injury."
