Outside of possibly being without their starting running back for Saturday’s Wild Card game against the Cincinnati Bengals, the Pittsburgh Steelers appear to be a healthy team heading into the postseason.
On Wednesday, the Steelers released their first official injury report of the week and as expected, running back DeAngelo Williams (foot) failed to practice. Also sitting out Wednesday was linebacker Vince Williams (illness), but he should be good to go by the time Saturday rolls around.
DeAngelo Williams isn’t expected to practice this week as he continues to rehab a foot injury that suffered in the first half of Sunday’s win over the Cleveland Browns. He was still wearing a protective boot on his right foot Wednesday morning, but is now reportedly out of it.
Should Williams be unable to play against the Bengals, backup Fitzgerald Toussaint is expected to start in his place with Jordan Todman serving as his backup.
Wide receiver Martavis Bryant (neck) also was listed on the Steelers Wednesday injury report after practicing fully earlier in the day. Bryant, who has just two catches for 6 yards in the Steelers last two games, left Sunday’s game against the Browns early with a neck injury that he suffered while attempting to make a tackle following an interception.
Cornerback William Gay (Not Injury Related), linebacker James Harrison (Not Injury Related) and tight end Heath Miller (Not Injury Related) were all given their customary veteran days off Wednesday.
The Steelers will travel to Cincinatti on Friday.
