Adam Schefter of ESPN reports, via agent Hadley Engelhard, that the Bills will release WR Mike Williams from injured reserve. Williams was waived-injured earlier this month with a calf injury and reverted to injured reserve when he passed through waivers unclaimed.
Williams is eligible to be signed by a team now and he’ll remain eligible to be signed at any point should the season end without him finding a new team. That gives him a leg up on the impending free agents around the league, although his 2014 season may not have too many people lining up to give him a job. Williams was an occasional healthy scratch while playing in nine games and catching eight passes.
