McCarron to get second opinion on injured shoulder

Buffalo Bills quarterback AJ McCarron will get a second opinion about his injured throwing shoulder, and defensive tackle Kyle Williams could miss the start of the regular season because of a knee injury, coach Sean McDermott said Sunday.

He spoke Sunday before practice but did not provide many details. Both players were injured in the first half of the Bills’ 19-17 preseason win against the Cleveland Browns on Thursday.

McCarron initially was diagnosed with a hairline fracture of his collarbone, but McDermott said subsequent tests on his right shoulder weren’t “totally conclusive.”

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero reported Saturday that McCarron was expected to miss several weeks. In his absence, the starting quarterback job, at least initially, will go to either first-round draft pick Josh Allen or incoming backup Nathan Peterman. The three have been locked in a competition for the top spot.

As for Williams, he was injured when a Browns player rolled up on the back of his right leg. He had trouble putting weight on his leg as he walked off the field, but he was spotted Sunday during practice walking without a noticeable limp. A black wrap covered most of his right leg, however.
