Williams suffers minor injuries
Williams' vehicle was the only one involved in the accident about three miles from Ralph Wilson Stadium, police said. Emergency crews used the jaws of life to extricate him from the truck.
Williams was taken to Erie County Medical Center in Buffalo, where he was to remain for observation.
Police did not know the cause of the accident and said Williams was the only person in the pickup truck. Bills spokesman Mark Dalton had no comment and was awaiting further details.
Williams has been the Bills' starting right tackle since the team selected him fourth overall in last year's draft. He has started all nine games this season and 23 overall.
Backup Marcus Price took over as starter.
Williams is the second NFL player to be involved in a car accident prior to a game in three weeks. Cincinnati running back Corey Dillon was in an accident on his way to the Bengals' home game against Seattle on Oct. 26. Dillon was not hurt but did not play.
The Bills also played Sunday without leading receiver Eric Moulds, who is nursing a slight groin tear. Moulds, hurt against Cincinnati on Oct. 5, missed two games before returning to play in parts of Buffalo's last two games.
Moulds didn't practice all week but wasn't placed on the Bills' injury report until Friday, when he was listed as questionable.
Third-string receiver Bobby Shaw was elevated to a starter.
Moulds leads the team with 41 catches for 542 yards, but has managed only 11 catches for 85 yards in his last two games.
