Buffalo Bills safety Aaron Williams has been released from the hospital after suffering a neck injury in the third quarter against the Patriots and being taken off the field in an ambulance on Sunday.
Williams’s father, Anthony, tweeted around 4:30 p.m. that his son has “full movement in all his extremities” and offered a thank you for prayers. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Williams underwent a CT scan and an MRI.
Bills coach Rex Ryan said Williams was taken to the hospital as a precaution.
Williams went airborne trying to keep receiver Julian Edelman out of the end zone.
Edelman caught a short pass from quarterback Tom Brady and ran 22 yards for the touchdown with 3:24 left in the third quarter.
About a 12-minute delay for the Aaron Williams injury. No idea what happened to him. Really hope he's ok— Ben Volin (@BenVolin) September 20, 2015
Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor expressed concern for Williams after the game.
“I actually didn’t even get a chance to see the play but prayers up to him and I’ll definitely keep him in my prayers,” he said.
Patriots safety Devin McCourty sent along his best wishes for Williams as well.
