Steelers' DeAngelo Williams getting second opinion on foot

BY foxsports • January 11, 2016

Pittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams is heading back to Charlotte, N.C. to get a second opinion on his injured foot Monday.

Williams, who missed the Steelers' dramatic 18-16 victory over the Bengals in the Wild Card round on Saturday, will visit with noted foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson, according to ESPN's Jim Trotter. Anderson has advised quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Drew Brees, both of whom battled torn plantar fascias. 

Williams, a nine-year member of the Carolina Panthers, is hoping to play in Sunday's second-round matchup in Denver, but the fact that he is getting a second opinion isn't too promising. If he is unable to play, Fitzgerald Toussaint and Jordan Todman will once again carry the load as they did in Cincinnati. Toussaint tallied 138 total yards on 21 touches, catching four passes for 60 yards. Todman was even more effective on the ground with 65 yards on 11 carries.
