Mike Williams of the Buccaneers Stabbed in the Leg at His House, Police Suspect His Brother Did It


Mike Williams, the Tampa Bay Bucs wide receiver, was stabbed in the leg this weekend, and police suspect his brother did it. From the WTSP in Tampa:

"Williams was stabbed in the thigh at his exclusive home in the gated community of Avila at 17027 Candeleda De Avila. Cristal Bermudez Nunez says it happened Sunday afternoon and the football player’s brother is suspected of stabbing him. Nunez is not releasing the brother’s name at this time but says they are looking for him this evening."

Williams, a 4th round pick from Syracuse in 2010, had a strong first three years in the league, but only played in six games last year. He was terrific as a rookie, racking up 964 yards and 11 touchdowns, and caught nine TDs in 2012. But he caught a career low 22 passes during an injury-plagued 2013 campaign.

It hasn’t been the best offseason for Williams. [via WTSP]
