He must be a Falcons fan!

TAMPA, Fla. – 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.

Williams has been in trouble with the law recently. He faces trespassing and criminal mischief charges after an incident in December and has had multiple domestic problems, including damaging neighbor's property.

His off-the-field issues have caught the attention of the Buccaneers' new head coach, Lovie Smith.

"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."

"Have I been disappointed in Mike Williams? Of course," Smith added. "There's a standard. We're just not going to put up with it, no matter who it is. You have to be good on the field and off the field. Simple as that. And if you're not doing what you need to do one or the other, you have problems and that's where Mike has to take care of a few things."

Williams signed a $40 million contract last offseason

Lovie is a class act. He is one of the few coaches that actually develops great relationships with his players. Alot of his previous players and assistant coaches have come crawling back at an opportunity to work with him again. He isn't going to put up with this, but I also think he is one of the few coaches that can be of great help in mentoring him. Cutting him..probably wont happen. Largely restricting his playeing time..yes
