Williams (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Williams, who did not practice Thursday, returned to a limited session Friday, so he has a chance to be active Sunday. That said, the veteran running back doesn't carry fantasy lineup utility so long as No. 1 option Le'Veon Bell remains healthy.

Williams (knee) did not practice Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

After turning in a limited session Wednesday, Williams logged an absence Thursday, thus suggesting that the veteran back is not a lock to return to action Sunday against the Bills. More on Williams' status no later than Friday, after the Steelers release their final Week 14 injury report.

Williams (knee) did not practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Williams is inching toward a return to action, and when he is able to rejoin the Steelers' backfield mix, he'll supplant Fitzgerald Toussaint, who has been filling in as the team's top backup behind No. 1 running back Le'Veon Bell.

Williams (knee) could return to practice this week, Dale Lolley of the Washington Observer-Reporter reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lolley added that Williams has a better chance of returning to practice than teammate Darius Heyward-Bey (foot). Williams has been held out for a large chunk of the season with a knee injury that ended up resulting in a procedure. Once he is able to return, however, he will become one of the more attractive handcuffs out there, given starter Le'Veon Bell's proneness to injury and the tremendous job Williams has done in the past filling in as a feature back for the Steelers.

Williams (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

Williams (knee) did not practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, coach Mike Tomlin has noted that Williams, who is bouncing back from a knee scope, "is perking up, he's doing some good things," so it's possible that the running back could progress to the point that he'll be available to back up Le'Veon Bell on Sunday against the Giants.

Head coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday he believes Williams (knee) will be available Sunday versus the Giants, Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Over the last five games, Williams has appeared just once, earning one carry among his four snaps. In the interim, he's undergone a meniscus trim in order to alleviate his knee concern. Now approaching the end of his recovery, he's "perking up," per Tomlin. His ability to practice before week's end will shed light on whether he's trending toward a return.

Williams, who is bouncing back from a meniscus trim, could return to action as soon as Week 13, when the Steelers take on the Giants, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

Until then, Fitzgerald Toussaint will serve as the Steelers' top backup behind the team's undisputed No.1 running back Le'Veon Bell. It's an assignment that garnered Toussaint just two snaps on offense and zero carries in Sunday's win over the Browns. Once Williams returns to the mix, he's not likely to see a heavy workload, though if Bell misses any time down the road, Williams has proven to be a highly capable substitution in the team's offense..

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport relays that Williams reportedly underwent a knee procedure that could keep the running back out two to three weeks.

EDGE Analysis

We'll await confirmation of the report, along with further details, but for however long Williams is sidelined, Fitzgerald Toussaint would move up a peg on the Steelers' RB depth chart behind Le'Veon Bell.
