“Former Bucs receiver Mike Williams is on life support in ICU at St. Joseph’s Hospital due to injuries sustained in a construction accident last week, the mother of his 8-year-old daughter said.”

“They were waiting on me and (his daughter). We’re here and still trying to figure it out,” said Lyle, standing outside of St. Joseph’s Hospital.

“He was asleep when we went in there and he woke up when he heard our voices and his daughter’s voice,” Lyle said. “And he looked around, and he blinked and he was crying but he can’t move.”
