DeAngelo Williams has ankle sprain, considered day to day

Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams will be considered day to day due to a sprained ankle, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette tweeted Monday night.

Williams was injured while being tackled by Browns defensive lineman John Hughes Sunday. He was carted to the locker room and though he soon returned to the sideline, he did not return to the game and left the stadium wearing a protective boot.

Williams had an MRI Monday, but Dulac’s report indicates it revealed no serious damage. The Steelers play at the Bengals Saturday night.

Williams, 32, has been an important and productive player for the Steelers offense this season, running for 907 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Fitzgerald Toussaint replaced Williams in Cleveland.

    11 touchdowns and he was the backup. I hope he stays.

    Name a better free agent signing during the last off-season in terms of value for the dollar.

    DeAngelo Williams represents everything that is good in football. He has quickly become one of my favorite players. With an ankle injury though he will not be effective on a short week against the Bengals. Hopefully the Steelers can get by without him and he has another 8 days to heal before the next game.

    Steelers better sign Ben Tate just in case.

    If Williams plays Burfict will twist him up and send him to the side line. Who’s next?

    @cruisekid… Let’s see… Who’s next you say? Could be mccarron, aj green, eiffert etc… Worry about the bungles team bro, your team is underdog in this game at your own stadium with a team that has a better record! Sad very sad!

    I am guaranteeing that the Steelers lose against Cincinnati this week. Not because the Bengals are better, they aren’t. But because Mike Tomlin can’t win games by game planning or actual coaching. He wins them by luck. Without Bell or Williams he can’t plan his way out of a paper bag or luck his way into a divisional playoff game.

    Come revisit this article/comment in a week to see my I Told You So.

    Williams was a magnificent signing for the Steelers this year. It seems like every time the Steelers have a playoff game, they have RB issues! That puts pressure on the passing game to do it all, which leads to a couple mistakes that hurt. Hopefully that won’t happen this Saturday night. Even without a strong running game, the Steelers don’t need to take stupid chances in the passing game to score enough points to win.

    Just the excuse Steelers fan-boys were looking for to explain away this years 1 and done.

  19. crownofthehelmet says: Jan 5, 2016 9:58 AM

    Rest him this week so he’s ready for the SB run. Whoever we trot out at RB this Saturday will be adequate. Cincy will be too distracted with all the monkeys on their backs to tackle anyone.

    Lets hope the steelers D steps up this weekend steelers will be ok
