Williams ran eight times for just 29 yards and a touchdown, but caught all seven of his targets for 88 yards in Sunday's 39-30 loss at Seattle. Williams has been very effective this season, but he's struggled as a runner over the last two games (25 carries for 83 yards), although the Seahawks defend the rush well. QB Ben Roethlisberger left Sunday's game late with a concussion, so the offense could take a hit next week against the Colts if he's forced to miss action. In any case, Williams is clearly the Steelers' workhorse back, as no other runner carried the ball Sunday, so he'll continue to see the majority of touches.
Williams had 17 carries for 54 yards and once reception for 15 yards in Pittsburgh's 30-9 win over Cleveland on Sunday. Fantasy owners had high expectations for Williams against the league's worst run defense, but he was a non-factor in the offense until late in the game. In fact, heading in to the fourth quarter, Williams had rushed eight times for just one yard. It may not get any easier for Williams, as the Steelers head to Seattle in Week 12 after their bye.
Williams (foot) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Browns. As long as his foot holds up, Williams' Week 10 matchup looks pretty good on paper, with the Browns' run defense ranked 32nd in the NFL, surrendering an average of 147.6 rushing yards per game to date.
Williams (foot) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Browns. Foot inflammation kept Williams out of practice Wednesday, but the running back practiced fully both Thursday and Friday and is thus poised to head the Steelers' Week 10 rushing attack Sunday, regardless of who the team starts at QB. To date, the Browns have allowed a league-high average of 147.6 rushing yards per game.
Williams (foot) practiced fully Thursday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. After sitting out Wednesday's practice, Williams' full participation Wednesday presumably puts him on track to play Sunday against the Browns, an outcome that would be solidified by a probable injury designation upon the release of Friday's injury report.
