Williams didn't think the issue is a big deal.

"I don't care about that. Only thing that matters to me is that I am playing," Williams said. "It is still the same pretty much. That is why I have to cope with it. It is one of things you have to deal with."

A potentially more worrisome development is starting defensive tackle Kyle Williams being listed on the injury report as missing practice due to an ankle injury.

Without Anderson, more pressure will be placed on Mario Williams to perform up to his capabilities.

"It is going to be a huge challenge," Williams said. "Mark is a great player. Having him, his intensity, and his demeanor out on the field is definitely going to be a (challenge) for us. We have to be able to pick it up. Not just us needing to do it for ourselves, but to fill in his place and the injuries we have been faced with."

Buffalo (2-3), which plays at Arizona (4-1) on Sunday, has allowed a combined 97 points and 1,201 yards in its past two games.
