Report: Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams (foot) to miss AFC wild-card game Saturday
Friday January 8th, 2016

Pittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams is likely out for the team's wild-card game against the Cincinnati Bengals with a foot injury, reports Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. 

Williams underwent an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of the injury, which was considered an ankle sprain after he was carted off the field in Pittsburgh’s 28–21 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

The Steelers play the Bengals in the first round of the playoffs at 8:15 p.m. ET on Saturday. Should they advance to the divisional round, there is a chance Williams could play, Rapoport reports.
