TAMPA, FL (WFLA) - Investigators say Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams was stabbed in the thigh while possibly horsing around with his brother.  Now there's an arrest warrant out for his brother, Eric Baylor, 23, of Buffalo, NY, for aggravated battery and domestic violence.

Williams was rushed to St. Joseph's Hospital for treatment Sunday night.  He was later released.

The incident occurred about 5 p.m. at Williams' rental home at 17027 Candeleda de Avila in Lutz, Hillsborough Sheriff's Spokeswoman Cristal Bermudez Nunez said. Eyewitnesses told authorities Williams and Baylor were playing around when Williams was stabbed.  Baylor was gone by the time deputies arrived.

The Buccaneers organization issued this statement:

"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 further comment until we can get a better understanding of the situation."

The Bucs did not comment on the extent of Williams' injury.

Just last month, Williams was involved other off-field incidents.  He faced criminal mischief and trespassing charges.  There was also a complaint filed by one of his neighbors about loud parties and noise coming from his rental home.

Williams signed a six-year, $40 million extension with the Bucs last year.
