While he failed to practice on Wednesday because of some inflammation in the middle of his foot, Pittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams said Thursday during his talk with the media that he intends on practicing later in the day, according to Chris Bradford of the Beaver County Times.
Williams, who had an astounding 225 total yards from scrimmage in Sunday’s win over the Oakland Raiders, reportedly gave the impression on Thursday that he’ll be able to play this Sunday in the Steelers home game against the Cleveland Browns.

Williams carried the football 27 times in Sunday’s win and that was the second-most amount of carries that he’s had in a single game during his long career. The 32-year-old running back leads the team in touchdowns with 5 heading into Week 10 and goes into the game against the Browns with 450 yards rushing on the season on 90 carries.
Assuming he indeed plays against the Browns, Williams figures to be backed up once again by Jordan Todman. Todman has two carries on the season for 14 yards.
The Steelers Thursday injury report will be released later on in the day after the team wraps up practice.
