Predicting the Steelers’ Week 6 inactive list vs. the Bengals

Predicting the Steelers’ Week 6 inactive list vs. the Bengals

Other than the return of Vince Williams, the inactive list should have a similar look. Week 6 is shaping up to be the most predictable inactive list of 2018. For the first time since opening weekend, players have already been ruled out before game day. Game Status Out: S Morgan Burnett (Groin) WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (ankle) Doubtful: LB L.J. Fort Here are the possibilities to end up inactive for Week 6: Definitely: S Morgan Burnett- his last action came in Week 2, so it makes sense to hold Burnett out until after the bye. WR Darrius Heyward-Bey- Coach Tomlin said the was a chance Hey-Bey...
Is it time for the Steelers to bench Vince Williams?

Is it time for the Steelers to bench Vince Williams?

With L.J. Fort shining in Vince Williams’ absence, it’s time to think about giving Fort starting time Vince Williams was just awarded a new contract before the start of this season, and he was the obvious starting ILB heading into the preseason. Jon Bostic was the one who was thought to be on the hot seat at ILB, but with Bostic playing at a high level, there’s no way you can sit him without the defense taking a huge hit in the middle. Unfortunately for Williams, he’s been average at best — but on passing downs, he’s been particularly suspect. The Steelers love to run...

All of the names listed as doubtful by the Steelers on Friday will miss the game against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. The Pittsburgh Steelers injury report has once again had a significant impact on the list of inactives for Sunday, with all the of the players designated as doubtful on Friday among the names sitting against the Atlanta Falcons. Vince Williams will miss a game for the first time in his professional career because of an injury, snapping a streak of 83 consecutive regular season games played.

In all facets, the Steelers’ 3-pronged ILB rotation is a disaster waiting to happen

In all facets, the Steelers’ 3-pronged ILB rotation is a disaster waiting to happen

With Vince Williams out, the Steelers have said they’ll employ a 3-ILB council in his place — quite the disastrous idea. Well, it seems the Steelers indeed will be without Vince Williams against the Atlanta Falcons at home on Sunday. Williams has been an incredibly underwhelming presence on the defense, and I dare say he’s currently playing himself right out of a starting job, should one of his three understudies step up. But that would imply this experiment might possibly prove to be a positive. After all, there are three hungry linebackers who want their shots at getting more snaps...

Steelers Injury Report: Vince Williams sits out practice while Morgan Burnett was limited

Chris Boswell also joined the names sitting out of practice towards the end of the session after he was forced to end training early because of a foot injury. The Pittsburgh Steelers’ first injury report of the week might appear to feature a long list of names, but more than half of the players sitting out practice on Wednesday were the beneficiaries of a coach’s day off. The key injury concerns heading into Week 5 appear to be Vince Williams and Morgan Burnett, with Chris Boswell and Darrius Heyward-Bey making a surprise appearance on the list to start the week. Steeers injury...
Matthew Thomas could be in the mix to see snaps on Sunday if Vince Williams cannot play

Matthew Thomas could be in the mix to see snaps on Sunday if Vince Williams cannot play

Mike Tomlin acknowledged the Steelers could choose to play Matthew Thomas at inside linebacker on Sunday if Vince Williams is sidelined by injury Having suffered a hamstring injury in Week 4, the status of Vince Williams is in some doubt for the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday after Mike Tomlin was unable to offer any positive updates about his condition on Tuesday. If he cannot play, there should be a legitimate debate about who might start in his place. L.J. Fort was the first player off the bench to replace Williams against the Baltimore Ravens, even though Tyler Matakevich is the one...

Steelers see 3 players forced to leave the game early against the Ravens

After losing Darrius Heyward-Bey in the first half, Nat Berhe and Vince Williams were also forced from the game later in the contest. The Pittsburgh Steelers will have at least three new injury concerns to worry about as they prepare to face the Atlanta Falcons in Week 5 after Vince Williams, Darrius Heyward-Bey and Nat Berhe were all forced to leave the game early on Sunday night. #88 Darrius Heyward-Bey has been downgraded to OUT (ankle).— Pittsburgh Steelers (@steelers) October 1, 2018 Suffering what appeared to be ankle injury during an attempted punt block in the second...

Matthew Thomas received reps with the first-team in practice in preparation for the Ravens game

Having only played on special teams through the first three games, Matthew Thomas might yet make his debut on defense this Sunday Despite a number of standout performances for the Pittsburgh Steelers during the preseason, very little has been seen of Matthew Thomas since he made the opening day roster. Of the 30 snaps the undrafted free agent has seen so far in 2018, all of them have come on special teams. Vince Williams and Jon Bostic have dominated the available time at linebacker, while Morgan Burnett, Terrell Edmunds and Mike Hilton have been the first names off the bench on passing...
