Buccaneers’ Mike Williams stabbed by brother: Report

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams went to St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa after a spokeswoman with the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office says Williams was stabbed in the thigh at his home.

Cristal Bermudez Nunez says it happened Sunday afternoon and the football player's brother is suspected of stabbing him.

The Buccaneers released the following statement in response to his hospitalization:

We are aware of the situation that occurred at the residence of Mike Williams and are working with him and the authorities to get additional information. While we have limited knowledge at this time, our primary concern is for the safety and well-being of all involved. We will refrain from comment until we can get a better understanding of the situation.

This has not been a good past few months for Williams — who has made headlines for running a party house in the gated community of Avila and is already facing trespassing and criminal mischief charges for another incident in December. He has had multiple domestic problems, including damaging neighbor's property in the past.

Another incident might not sit well with the organization a year after he signed a $40 million contract.

The Buccaneers new coach Lovie Smith already expressed concern about Williams wild behavior.

"There's a pattern here and it's disturbing. No one is bigger than this football team," Smith said in February. "He has to understand that.”
