The Pittsburgh Steelers were dealt a tough blow when they saw DeAngelo Williams go down with injury in the team's Week 17 game against the Cleveland Browns Sunday. Williams, who has filled in nicely for Le'Veon Bell, was diagnosed with a right ankle injury, and was held out of the remainder of the game.

When the Steelers win was iced, and the team saw the Buffalo Bills defeat the New York Jets to help punch their ticket to the AFC Playoffs, it didn't stop Williams from celebrating the win with his teammates as they came off the field.

There was no update on Williams' injury from head coach Mike Tomlin after the game, but the hope is Williams' injury isn't serious enough to keep him out of the team's AFC Wild Card game next week. More information on the injury will be updated when Mike Tomlin meets with media for his Tuesday press conference.

The Steelers' next game will be announced when the Top 6 seeds have been decided, which will likely happen later Sunday.
