John McClain: Mario Williams Will Have Surgery And Is Lost For Season

Question the source all you want, but here's the report:

Outside linebacker Mario Williams is out for the season with a torn pectoral muscle that will require surgery this week.

Rookie Brooks Reed, a second-round pick, will take his place.

Williams had just recorded his fifth sack of the season, a first-quarter takedown of Oakland quarterback Jason Campbell for a 1-yard loss. But one play later, on third down, Williams was running off the field at Reliant Stadium, hardly moving his arms.

There will be time to reflect on the impact of Super Mario's loss. For now, share your reaction in the Comments below.
