Steelers' Vince Williams: Two tackles in playoff win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Williams totaled two tackles (both solo) in the Steelers' 30-12 playoff win against the Dolphins on Sunday.

Williams finished the regular season with 47 tackles (37 solo). He has been the model of consistency over his four-year career, averaging 47 tackles per season, but he stepped up his game slightly, recording two sacks after having just a half sack in his previous three seasons.

Steelers' Vince Williams: Will play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Williams (shoulder) will be active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Williams was evaluated for a shoulder injury earlier in the week, but ultimately will be able to play in the Steelers' wild-card matchup. He's set to back up Lawrence Timmons at inside linebacker.

Steelers' Vince Williams: Being evaluated for shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to head coach Mike Tomlin, Williams is being evaluated for a shoulder injury, Dale Lolley of the Observer-Reporter reports.

Look for more information to come once practice reports are released later this week. The reserve linebacker has played primarily on special teams for the second half of the season, so his absence from the field wouldn't have a major impact on the defensive game plan. Should he be ruled out, L.J. Fort would see increased action Sunday against the Dolphins.

Steelers' Vince Williams: Having trouble in Miami heat
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Williams is experiencing heat-related cramps and is considered questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

With Ryan Shazier (knee) inactive, seventh-round rookie Tyler Matakevich stands to see a significant uptick in playing time should Williams not return.

Steelers' Vince Williams: Leads Steelers with nine tackles on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Williams had a team-high nine tackles (eight solo), including a sack in Sunday's 31-13 win over the Jets.

After an embarrassing loss to the Eagles in Week 3, the Steelers' defense has been dominant. Led by Williams' 25 tackles, including three sacks, in this past two games, they'll continue their three-game swing against AFC East teams when they visit the struggling Dolphins in Week 6.
