HOUSTON (AP) — Injured Texans OLB Mario Williams says he's healing "extremely fast" in his recovery from a torn chest muscle that will sideline him the rest of this season.
The 6-foot-6, 283-pound Williams left in the first quarter of Houston's 25-20 loss to Oakland on Oct. 9. He was placed on injured reserve and had surgery, his second operation in less than a year.
Williams says his recovery is "actually going too well," though he set no timeline on when he'd be able to restart football-related activities.
Williams, the franchise's all-time sacks leader, spoke Tuesday outside Houston Police headquarters near downtown, where he donated five Chevrolet Camaros to the department's traffic fleet. He says he's considering a career in law enforcement after his playing career is over.
