Vince Williams returns to Steelers practice; L.J. Fort sits

| Wednesday, October 10, 2018 4:18 p.m

Three days after missing a game because of injury for the first time in his NFL career, Vince Williams returned to Pittsburgh Steelers practice Wednesday. But one of the inside linebackers who replaced him last week did not practice.

Williams was listed as a full participant on the official practice report for Wednesday after he did not practice last week or play Sunday against Atlanta because of a hamstring injury.

Fort and Tyler Matakevich filled Williams’ spot at left inside linebacker against the Falcons. Fort missed Wednesday’s practice because of an ankle injury.

Also practicing was rookie safety Terrell Edmunds, who sustained a calf injury Sunday.

Others who did not practice because of injury were safety Morgan Burnett and receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey. Burnett has missed the past three games because of a groin injury; Heyward-Bey (ankle) did not play against the Falcons.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
