Steelers' Vince Williams: Cleared of concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams cleared the league's concussion protocol and will be eligible to return to Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Williams was taken to the locker room during the first half of Sunday's tilt after suffering the head injury, but he'll likely be back in action following halftime.

Steelers' Vince Williams: Being evaluated for possible concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams is being evaluated for a possible concussion and his return to Sunday's game against the Jaguars is considered questionable.

Williams, who posted a career-best 89 tackles during the 2017 regular season, was escorted to the locker room in the first half of Sunday's contest after suffering a head injury. Williams may be able to return to the game if he clears the league's concussion protocol, but L.J. Fort and Tyler Matakevich could see increased roles at inside linebacker.

Steelers' Vince Williams: Finishes season with career high in sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams, who recorded four tackles (three solo), including a sack in Sunday's win over the Browns, finishes up the 2017 season with 89 tackles (69 solo), including eight sacks in 16 games.

This year was Williams' best by far, after totaling just 2.5 sacks in his previous four seasons. The Pittsburgh defense, which allowed just 19.3 points per game, will be a huge factor in how far the team advances in the post season.

Steelers' Vince Williams: First career interception in disappointing loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams totaled three tackles (all solo) and an interception in Pittsburgh's 27-24 loss to New England on Sunday.

The fifth-year linebacker intercepted a Tom Brady pass intended for Rob Gronkowski that set up a touchdown five plays later for a 24-16 lead. However, the Patriots scored 11 unanswered points in the fourth quarter for the come-from-behind win, ending Pittsburgh's eight-game winning streak and gaining the inside track for home field advantage in the AFC playoffs.

Steelers' Vince Williams: Leads defense in dominating second half
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams recorded nine tackles (four solo), including a sack in Pittsburgh's 23-20 win over Cincinnati on Monday.

For a second straight week the defense got off to a slow start, and failed to record a turnover or sack in the first half. Trailing 17-3 at halftime, the Steelers did not get to quarterback Andy Dalton until Williams sacked him at the 10:02 mark of the fourth quarter. Still, the defense held the Bengals to just three points in the second half, allowing the offense to comeback for the win. Williams is second on the team in tackles, behind Ryan Shazier, who suffered what appeared to be a devastating spinal injury that forced him from the game. No word yet on the severity of that injury.
