Steelers Injury Report: DeAngelo Williams and six other players ruled out vs. the Patriots in Week 7

The Pittsburgh Steelers are going to be without seven players in Week 7 against the New England Patriots, one of them being DeAngelo Williams.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are already in dire straits regarding the injuries on the team, and they were dealt a few more body blows as they prepare for the Week 7 game against the New England Patriots. Check out who has already been ruled out for the game this Sunday at Heinz Field.

The full list is OT Marcus Gilbert (ankle), DT Cameron Heyward (hamstring), Ben Roethlisberger (knee), Cody Wallace (knee), Markus Wheaton (shoulder) and DeAngelo Williams (knee).

The lone shocker on the list is running back DeAngelo Williams. Williams, who has been hampered by a swollen knee this week, won't be suiting up for the Steelers, which means an extended workload for Le'Veon Bell, as well as an increased role for Fitzgerald Toussaint.

The other good news regarding the final injury report for the Steelers is all players who were limited participants earlier in the week, Ryan Shazier, Robert Golden and Mike Mitchell, are all slated to be playing in their normal positions Sunday.
