Mario Williams among Bills' ironmen

December, 26, 2013
For NFL players, staying healthy and avoiding injuries is a difficult task. Anything from poor preparation to bad luck can affect a player's durability, so when he is able to play a full 16-game season, something is going right.

With one game remaining, the following Bills players are set to cross the finish line unscathed. They have started all 15 games to this point:

T Cordy Glenn
T Erik Pears
G Kraig Urbik
C Eric Wood
DE Mario Williams
DT Kyle Williams
LB Kiko Alonso

There are several other players who have played in all 15 games so far, including some appearances as a reserve:

RB Fred Jackson
WR Marcus Easley
WR Chris Hogan
WR T.J. Graham
TE Scott Chandler
TE Lee Smith
T Thomas Welch
DE Jerry Hughes
DT Alan Branch
DT Marcell Dareus
LB Nigel Bradham
LB Arthur Moats
CB Nickell Robey
S Jim Leonhard
S Da'Norris Searcy
S Duke Williams
K Dan Carpenter
LS Garrison Sanborn

Overall, 25 Bills have appeared in every game this season. That ranks third in the division, behind the New York Jets (28) and the Miami Dolphins (27). The New England Patriots have the fewest "ironmen" in the AFC East -- 20 are set to finish a full season Sunday.
