Bills Notebook: Williams late addition to injury list

Defensive tackle Kyle Williams was a late addition to the Buffalo Bills' injury list Wednesday when he missed practice with a groin injury.

Williams joined quarterback Tyrod Taylor (knee), tight end Charles Clay (knee), defensive end Eddie Yarbrough (chest), running back Travaris Cadet (concussion), and guard John Miller (ankle) on the list of players who didn't take part in the first full workout as the Bills began preparing in earnest for Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin (knee), who has missed the last two games, and tackle Cordy Glenn (foot/ankle), who has missed the last four, practiced on a limited basis.

"I think me, the coaches, the training staff, we’re just going to come to a decision at the end of the week," Benjamin said. "We’re just taking it day by day, just taking it slow."

Coach Sean McDermott called Glenn's ability to work a step in the right direction.

"I’m very encouraged by it and, similar to the other guys, we’ll take it one day at a time," McDermott said.

Cornerbacks Tre'Davious White (concussion) and Leonard Johnson (knee), and running back Mike Tolbert (hamstring) also practiced on a limited basis.

McDermott acknowledged fact White was able to do limited work was encouraging. White wasn't permitted to speak with reporters because he is still in concussion protocol.

Running back LeSean McCoy (knee) and tackle Seantrel Henderson (back) were full participants.
