The Steelers are not expected to re-sign free agent RB DeAngelo Williams.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette believes that "ship has sailed." Williams did a great job filling in for Le'Veon Bell the past couple seasons, but Bouchette expects Pittsburgh to address running back in the draft and get younger there. Turning 34 next month, Williams hasn't drawn an ounce of known interest but could be waiting for training camp to sign. Mar 22 - 9:50 AM

DeAngelo Williams contributed 34 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries while absorbing all seven of his targets for 51 yards Sunday in the Steelers' AFC Championship Game loss to the Patriots.

Williams took over as the lead back after Le’Veon Bell went down with a groin injury late in the first quarter. D-Will offered a handful of nice runs including a five-yard touchdown dash in the second quarter, but was mostly bottled up against a stout Patriots’ run defense. He fell flat in the second half, recording just 10 yards on six carries after halftime. Williams made up for his lack of rushing success by playing an important role in the passing game, though none of it was enough to top a New England team that came ready to play on Sunday. It’s unclear what the future holds for Williams. He’s the oldest back in the NFL at age 33, but showed he still has something left in the tank by rushing for 258 yards during Bell’s three-game suspension earlier this season. The impending free agent may have one year left in him.
Jan 22 - 11:18 PM

DeAngelo Williams rushed 23 times for 67 yards and one touchdown in the Steelers' Week 17 win over the Browns.

With Le'Veon Bell resting for the playoffs, Williams out-carried Fitzgerald Toussaint 23-3. Coming into the regular-season finale, Williams had played just 12 offensive snaps since Week 5 after undergoing a knee scope. Williams will head back to sparingly-used No. 2 duties in the Wild Card round.
Jan 1 - 7:10 PM

ESPN Steelers reporter Jeremy Fowler reports DeAngelo Williams could see a "healthy" workload this week against the Browns.

Williams returned to the field in Week 16, but he only played one snap, his only action since Week 9. It would make sense for the Steelers to get the veteran a little more rest before the playoffs, but Fowler thinks they will give him a "tuneup" after missing so much time. If Williams does get the start, he will be a great play in both season long and DFS. Fitzgerald Toussaint should also see some snaps.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said he fully expects DeAngelo Williams (knee) to return against the Ravens in Week 16.

Williams had some fluid buildup in his surgically-repaired knee last week, which was why he was inactive for Sunday's win over the Bengals. Even if he returns to play the Ravens on Christmas Day, Williams won't see more than a handful of touches behind MVP candidate Le'Veon Bell.

DeAngelo Williams experienced swelling in his surgically-repaired knee Sunday morning.

It explains why he was inactive despite being left off the final injury report on Friday. He could be limited this week after suffering the setback. Le'Veon Bell should be the unquestioned workhorse the rest of the way.

DeAngelo Williams (knee) is inactive for Week 15 against the Bengals.

It is a big surprise after Williams was left off the final injury report Friday. It is unclear if he suffered a setback this weekend or the Steelers just like Fitzgerald Toussaint more in the backup role. The latter seems unlikely. Pittsburgh also declared Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot), S Shamarko Thomas (concussion), QB Zach Mettenberger, WR Demarcus Ayers, RB Daryl Richardson, and OT Brian Mihalik inactive for Week 15.
Sun, Dec 18, 2016 11:34:00 AM

DeAngelo Williams (knee) was not listed on the final injury report.

Williams looks set to return after undergoing knee surgery just over a month ago. He will at best see a handful of carries behind Le'Veon Bell.
Fri, Dec 16, 2016 06:46:00 PM

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said DeAngelo Williams (knee) has a "legitimate" chance to return against the Bengals in Week 15.

Tomlin said the same thing last week and Williams still didn't play. With Le'Veon Bell having a year for the ages, D-Will won't see much action even if he does get the green light for Week 15. Williams underwent arthroscopic knee surgery prior to Week 10.
Tue, Dec 13, 2016 12:22:00 PM

DeAngelo Williams (knee) is questionable for Week 14 against the Bills.

Williams underwent arthroscopic knee surgery about a month ago and has missed the Steelers' last four games. He practiced Wednesday, got the day off on Thursday and returned to a limited session on Friday. Williams will slide in as the No. 2 back behind workhorse Le'Veon Bell upon his return. Fitzgerald Toussaint has been filling that role for the past month.
Fri, Dec 9, 2016 02:34:00 PM

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said DeAngelo Williams (knee) could return to practice this week.

He and Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot) will both be evaluated on Tuesday. Williams had a knee scope about a month ago. For what it's worth, Tomlin said Williams has a better chance to return this week than Heyward-Bey.
Tue, Dec 6, 2016 12:23:00 PM

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said DeAngelo Williams (knee) is "perking up."

It sounds like he has a good chance of playing Sunday against the Giants. Of course, he'll merely be a handcuff for workhorse Le'Veon Bell. A knee injury has sidelined Williams since Week 10.
Tue, Nov 29, 2016 12:36:00 PM

Steelers declared RB DeAngelo Williams, WR Darrius Heyward-Bey, TE Xavier Grimble, QB Zach Mettenberger, OT Brian Mihalik, RB Daryl Richardson and S Shamarko Thomas inactive for Week 12 against the Colts.

Williams is still working his way back from a torn meniscus. He could return for next week's game against the Giants. The Steelers didn't have anyone listed as questionable this week.
Thu, Nov 24, 2016 08:34:00 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports DeAngelo Williams (knee surgery) could return in Week 13 against the Giants.

Williams had his meniscus trimmed 11 days ago, making it extremely unlikely he will be ready to play Thanksgiving night against the Colts. It looks like next week is a possibility, however. Williams will resume his duties as Le'Veon Bell's handcuff when he is healthy.
Mon, Nov 21, 2016 09:03:00 AM

Steelers declared RB DeAngelo Williams, QB Zach Mettenberger, S Shamarko Thomas, S Jordan Dangerfield, OT Brian Mihalik, TE Xavier Grimble and WR Darrius Heyward-Bey inactive for Week 11 against the Browns.

D-Will is week to week. Fitzgerald Toussaint will caddie for Le'Veon Bell in a windy game that should feature plenty of running.
