Bills DT Williams eager to take 2 steps forward after operation to repair right foot

Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams is finally looking forward to standing on his own two feet pain-free.

Saying he's already noticing more flexibility in his surgically repaired right foot, Williams expects to be cleared for the start of training camp in July. Williams has been held out of the Bills' spring minicamp sessions after having an operation in February to remove bone spurs in his right foot.

The surgery was similar to one the seventh-year player had on his left foot a year earlier to correct an injury that forced him to miss the final 12 games of the 2011 season. The issues with his left foot were far more severe, because the spurs were tearing into his Achilles tendon, which also had to be repaired during the operation.
