    Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey scores touchdown in Week 4 loss

    Steelers wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey caught four passes for 31 yards and a touchdown on five targets in Thursday's 23-20 overtime loss to the Ravens. Heyward-Bey was more productive than Markus Wheaton in the absence of Martavis Bryant, who is set to return from a four-game suspension for Week 5 against the Chargers. Bryant was expected to open the season as the No. 3 wide receiver, but Wheaton has probably handed his more talented teammate the No. 2 job. With Wheaton showing so poorly this season, Heyward-Bey may still be in the mix for the No. 3 role. Of course, the role will likely come with a modest volume of targets even after Ben Roethlisberger (knee) returns, as the Steelers need to feed Le'Veon Bell, Antonio Brown and Bryant.

    Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey catches three passes Sunday

    Steelers wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey caught all three passes thrown to him for 19 yards in Pittsburgh's 12-6 win over St. Louis Sunday. Heyward-Bey has done an adequate job filling the hole created by the absence of Martavis Bryant (suspension). Through three games, DHB has caught 11 of 15 targets for 155 yards and a touchdown, and will have one more week before Bryant returns to action.

    Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey nets four catches, scores TD

    Steelers wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey caught 4 of 5 targets for 71 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the 49ers. The whole Steelers offense was clicking throughout this game, but it was nice to see Heyward-Bey garner the second-most wide receiver targets behind only Antonio Brown en route to an effective game. Martavis Bryant still has two games left on his four-game suspension, and it seems like Heyward-Bey will continue to act as the team's No. 2 receiver at least until Bryant gets back.

    Steelers strong physically for game against Buccaneers

    Cornerback Ike Taylor and linebacker Ryan Shazier are out, but the Steelers are otherwise in good shape for their Sunday clash against visiting Tampa Bay. Only one other player on their Friday injury report has been designated any worse than probable. That is guard Ramon Foster (ankle), who is questionable. The probables are running back Dri Archer (ankle) and wideout Darrius Heyward-Bey (ankle). Standouts such as quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, tight end Heath Miller, safety Troy Polamalu and defensive end Brett Keisel are all probable with non-injury related issues.
