Vince Williams Says He’s ‘Full Go’ To Play Vs Bengals

Some good news on the Pittsburgh Steelers’ injury front. Vince Williams, who suffered a hip injury in last week’s win, says he’s “good to go” and practiced fully today. This comes via the PPG’s Ray Fittipaldo.

Williams had missed the previous two days of practice, casting doubt on his availability but today’s news certainly makes things look much more positive.

If he is still unable to go, Tyler Matakevich will fill-in. The Steelers will issue their injury report later this afternoon.

Williams picked up a pair of sacks a week ago, giving him four on the season. That’s the most on the Steelers and leads all off-ball players league-wide.

Asked about that by the AP’s Will Graves, Williams said that comes with the territory.

    I really hope VW plays. Don’t want too see TM full time at all.

    I’m very happy for Vince Williams leading the team in sacks. I’ve been rooting for him ever since Law Dog left. I mean, the dude’s locker is in between James Harrison & Antonio Brown – he has to be a hardworker in between those two.

    Quietly rooting for him to make the Pro-Bowl alongside Ryan Shazier.

    Vince Williams is one tough dude. You KNOW he’s not 100% But he’s battling through the pain.

    No way he would miss this AFC Match up with the Bungles !! A home game, can do wonders to someone’s injury.. Rest up big guy.. can’t wait to see you lay the wood

    Ok, great win. Don’t matter how it happened, they got the W. Now it’s on to the next one. And that is how it should be. Many fans look for individual talents because they play those fantasy or betting games, which is cool and all, but it just does not interest me. I said it does not interest me.

    They would not have let Timmons go if they did not have just as much faith in VW.

    The man can flat out ball. Tyler can as well. Two different player, and yet two very good players.

    Am glad Vince can play but would not mind seeing TM spell Vince a few series. Tyler seems to be around the ball a lot and is a good tackler.
