GP, to think that I'm trying to aid not only a Steelers fan, but also a fantasy league foe. Here's the latest I've seen. It was from the local Cincinnati Enquirer.
Injured Williams participates in Bengals practice

The Bengals practiced again this afternoon – with one unexpected addition – in preparation for the game Sunday night at Jacksonville.
Free safety Madieu Williams (shoulder), though questionable, was in shoulder pads at the start of practice. He did drills early in practice on the sideline under a trainer’s supervision. The injury report, which would tell if Williams had been upgraded, would not be ready until after practice at about 4 p.m.
Tailback Rudi Johnson (knee) and right tackle Willie Anderson (back) did participate early in practice. They were listed as probable on Wednesday.
Center Rich Braham (knee) and wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh (hand) did not practice. They were questionable.
The Jaguars, 2-2, are a two and a half-point favorite over the Bengals. Home teams normally get three points in a game that is too close to call.
To add to this, I've heard that Madieu is saying that he will try and play this Sunday, experimenting with wearing a protective brace and "dealing" with the pain. For perspective, Landon Johnson had a very similar injury early on last year and was able to finish the year, opting for the surgery after the season. As a fan, I'm dying for Madieu to play. In the offseason, Marvin was quoting as naming Madieu the best player on the defense.
