The Steelers on Saturday placed LB Robert Spillane on IR with his knee injury. That means he'll miss at least the next 3 games. Spillane's absence also moves Avery Williamson into the starting lineup. Williamson led Pittsburgh with 9 tackles (6 solos) in just 53% playing time vs. Washington last week, the game Spillane left early. Williamson looks like a nice IDP option over the final 3 weeks of most fantasy seasons.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that Steelers LB Robert Spillane won't need surgery on the left knee he injured Monday night against Washington. But Spillane is expected to miss time. Avery Williamson got a playing-time boost vs. Washington with Spillane leaving early. He managed a team-high 9 tackles (6 solo) on just 53% of the defensive snaps. Expect Williamson to climb at least into the 70-80% range of snap share and deliver solid-to-good tackle numbers for as long as Spillane is sidelined.

Steelers ILB Robert Spillane left in the 3rd quarter of Monday night's game against Washington after hurting his left knee. Pittsburgh deemed him questionable to return.
