Williamson posted 14 tackles (nine solo) and a sack in Sunday's 28-24 win over the Colts. Williamson made his first start for the Steelers in Week 14. Over the three games as a starter, Williamson has posted 32 tackles and a sack. He'll look to cap off a successful run in the regular-season finale against the Browns.
Williamson recorded 11 tackles (nine solo) across 67 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Bills. Williamson led the team in tackles Sunday, as he now has 20 tackles over the past two weeks. Sunday was by far Williamson's highest snap count on defense (89 percent) since being traded to the Steelers. He'll now shift his focus to a primetime matchup with the Bengals.
Williamson finished with a team-high nine tackles (six solo) and a tackle for loss in Monday's 23-17 loss to Washington. Williamson filled in admirably as the starting inside linebacker with Robert Spillane (knee) out. The trade deadline acquisition from the Jets should continue to start for as long as Spillane is sidelined.
Williamson is expected to take over the starting inside linebacker role in replace of the injured Robert Spillane (knee), Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports. After being traded to the Steelers in November, Williamson will have the opportunity to start at inside linebacker because of the knee injury Spillane suffered Monday. The veteran had essentially been insurance for the Steelers' linebacking corps, recording just three tackles with the Steelers prior to Monday, but if the loss against Washington is any indication, expect Williamson to be a worthy IDP option as the full-time starter (nine tackles).
Williamson had his roster exemption lifted Saturday, and he's officially on the Steelers' 53-man roster, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports. The Steelers traded for Williamson earlier in the week, and he's passed the necessary COVID-19 protocols to join the team for Sunday's game versus the Cowboys. Williamson handled a starting role with the Jets this year, as he posted 59 tackles, three pass breakups and an interception through seven games. However, the veteran is expected to serve as an inside linebacker Robert Spillane's backup in Pittsburgh.
