ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Buffalo Bills safety Aaron Williams has been released from the hospital after having a series of tests to determine the severity of a neck injury.

The Bills provided the update on Sunday, about three hours after Williams was hurt during a 40-32 loss to the New England Patriots. Williams was loaded into an ambulance on the field and taken to the hospital for what coach Rex Ryan called a “cervical precaution.”

Williams was hurt while making a diving attempt to tackle Julian Edelman on a 22-yard touchdown catch late in the third quarter. The safety’s head bounced as it connected with Edelman’s back and both players hit the turf, leaving Williams skidding face down on the left sideline.

Williams was able to move his body and was talking with trainers as he was put on a stretcher. His body was immobilized before being loaded onto the ambulance.
