Steelers ILB Mark Barron left Sunday's game early with a hamstring injury. We'll see about his availability for the Week 6 visit to the Chargers. Barron's absence helped Vince Williams stay on the field long enough to collect a team-high 9 tackles, a sack and a pass breakup. Williams would likely start in Barron's place if te latter can't go next Sunday night.
Steelers ILB Vince Williams (toe) is doubtful for Sunday's finale against the Bengals. That likely means more playing time for L.J. Fort, but no Pittsburgh ILB has given us consistent enough playing time to be worth trusting in IDP lineups this week.
As expected, Steelers S Morgan Burnett (groin) and LB Vince Williams (hamstring) are inactive for today's game against the Falcons. Each player entered the day doubtful. Burnett's absence means a 3rd straight start for rookie S Terrell Edmunds. Anthony Chickillo looks likeliest to fill in for Williams, though Tyler Matakevich could also enter the picture.
The Steelers have ruled LB Ryan Shazier out for the 2nd straight game with a knee injury. That means LB Vince Williams will start in his place again after racking up 15 tackles in last week's win over the Chiefs.. We've added Williams to the Week 5 LB rankings.
