Rick Stewart/Getty Images(ORCHARD PARK, N.Y.) — Buffalo Bills defensive end Mario Williams had arthroscopic surgery on his sprained left wrist and now expects to play in Sunday’s game versus his former team the Houston Texans.

“Oh, I’m definitely, definitely [playing]. I’m not missing anything,” he said. “It uplifts me tremendously… I’m definitely excited. This is a great week.”

Williams signed a six-year, $100 million contract with the Bills this past off-season. The Bills currently rank 31st in the NFL in yards allowed per game and Williams has received much of the criticism for it. Williams has 3 1/2 sacks in seven games, but says now that his wrist has been fixed, he feels much better.

“Nobody wants me to do better than me. So definitely, with this procedure, it’s definitely given me a lot of hope and a different mindset,” he said. “I feel like I was stagnant. That’s why I’m very excited to have been able to go clean it out and being optimistic about things.”

The 27-year-old Williams has 56 1/2 sacks for his career.
