Report: DeAngelo Williams seeing foot specialist Monday

When running back DeAngelo Williams was ruled out for Wild Card weekend, word was that he’d have a chance to rejoin the Steelers’ lineup for the divisional round if they beat the Bengals.

The Steelers did beat the Bengals on Saturday night and Williams is reportedly getting another opinion on what’s been called either a foot or ankle injury on Monday. Jim Trotter of ESPN reports that Williams is visiting with Dr. Robert Anderson, the foot specialist who has also seen Drew Brees and Peyton Manning as they’ve dealt with torn plantar fascias this season.

Williams’ status for Sunday’s game against the Broncos is still uncertain, per Trotter, but going for a second opinion isn’t a big confidence builder for his chances of playing.

Fitzgerald Toussaint and Jordan Todman filled in well for Williams in the win over Cincinnati. Toussaint had 58 rushing yards and 60 receiving yards while Todman ran for 65 yards on 11 carries.

    Williams’ status is irrelevant until we know if Ben and Brown are able to go.

    It’s the Vikings’ Blair Walsh who should be seeing the foot specialist!

    Never a good sign. Seeing a specialist = out for a significant time

    Yeah, this development is not good at all for Steeler Nation.

    It surprises me that with the blank check NFL teams and players have for state-of-the-art medical diagnoses of the highest precision and importance — that we see crap like this at the most critical time of the season in a $10,000,000,000 industry.

    I don’t even want to get into all the anti-biotic-resistant staph infections that have ruined careers throughout the NFL (the latest being NYG TE Daniel Fells).

    Everybody just calmdown. The second tier running backs did a great job last week. They’ve got the “fresh legs” anyway. Get Vick ready to backup cause he’s got the big arm and Jones is totally useless! And our recievers are so deep we can win without AB. So, Just calm down! GO STEELERS!!
