Williams recorded four tackles (three solo), including a sack, and returned an interception for a touchdown during Thursday's 52-21 win over Carolina.
Williams came up with a huge play on a pick-six to give the Steelers their first lead of the game. Two drives later, he took down Cam Newton, giving him 1.5 sacks in the past two weeks. He'll look to add to that total in Week 11 against Jacksonville, which has allowed 22 sacks this season, including 16 in its last four games.
Williams had four tackles (three solo) including a half sack during Sunday's 23-16 win over Baltimore.
Although he is among the team leaders in tackles Williams has managed just 1.5 sacks this season, a huge drop from the 11.5 sacks in recorded in 2017. While Pittsburgh's defense has played well as a whole, Williams has been a bit of a disappointment. The Steelers play on Thursday in Week 10 and lead the series against the Panthers 5-1-0, winning the last five meetings.
Williams led the defense with seven tackles (six solo) including a sack during Sunday's 28-21 win over Cincinnati.
The Steelers had three sacks in the game including the first of the season for Williams, who had a career-high eight sacks last year. He also has 36 tackles to trail Jon Bostic by one for the team lead heading into a Week 7 bye.
Williams (hamstring) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports.
Williams' practice without limitation suggests he's in line to play in Sunday's game against the Bengals. Barring any setbacks, Williams figures to slide back into his role at starting inside linebacker.
