Looked like Spillane went down when I had it on in the background. Now might be his chance!

The Steelers traded for Avery Williamson back in November. I’m sure he will get the start now that Spillane will be out. Ulysees should be able to help in some situational downs where the Steelers defense has been struggling. Hope to see him return.

The Steelers made several roster moves on Saturday, including activating linebacker Ulysees Gilbert III to the 53-man roster.

 

Gilbert, who played in two games this season, was placed on the Reserve/Injured List on Nov. 4 with a back injury. He returned to practice on Dec. 9 and the team had 21 days to activate him or he would have had to remain on the Reserve/Injured List all season.

I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do tomorrow. No Bush, Williams or Spillane.. he should get some decent time

I hope to see him as well. For some reason, the Steelers have this fascination with Marcus Allen (converted safety), don't be surprised to see #27 at LB as well. Maybe I'm wrong (I don't get to see practices) but I have to think UG3, if healthy, has more potential in this defense at the LB position than Marcus? Both have only played LB in the dime, so I'm wondering if that won't be their base package tonight. Williamson has played against the Bills twice this season when he was with the Jets, so I expect he will see the most time. Seems like a disaster waiting to happen, I hope I'm wrong.

I agree. They might luck out with the Bills having some issues with the ground game this year. We'll see! Go UGIII

Ulysees GIlbert III’s Back Is Feeling Good as He Gets 3rd Shot with Steelers

 

“My back’s feeling good,” Gilbert said after practice this week. “I have a routine every day that I continue to do to keep my back healthy and feeling good. So, I’m excited man. I’m thankful for the opportunity that is ahead of me and thankful for the opportunity to just be out here every day.”
