    10/01/16WRKevin NorwoodHipQUESTIONABLENorwood (hip) was released from the Panthers' injured reserve list on Friday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

    Norwood, a 2014 fourth-round selection by the Seahawks, has been nursing a hip pointer since Carolina's fourth preseason contest. He's now eligible to sign elsewhere.

    08/20/16DBTravell DixonChestQUESTIONABLEDixon left Saturday's preseason matchup with an apparent chest injury and is questionable to return, Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer reports.

    In his NFL debut last week, Dixon tallied three tackles against Baltimore. The Washington product has taken reps at both cornerback and safety for Carolina in the early going, but with a lot of uncertainty surrounding Dixon and his injury, it remains to be seen if he'll be able to squeak onto the roster by preseason's end.

    07/28/16DBLeonard JohnsonAchillesOUTJohnson (Achilles) was placed on the Panthers' reserve/NFI list on Monday, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

    Johnson also began training camp on the active/NFI list after undergoing offseason surgery to repair an Achilles injury suffered last season with the Patriots. Although no timetable was provided for his return, Johnson could theoretically resume playing after the first six weeks of the regular season.

    Pittsburgh Injuries

    10/24/16DLCameron HeywardHamstringOUTHeyward is expected to miss 2-to-3 weeks due to the hamstring injury he suffered Sunday, NFL.com's Aditi Kinkhabwala reports.

    Heyward's injury is not considered serious, but the results of Monday's MRI unfortunately suggested it could keep him sidelined until Pittsburgh's Week 8 bye. That would mean missing Week 7's top-heavy tussle against the Patriots. A Steelers team captain, Heyward boasts 17 tackles, three sacks and a fumble recovery so far this season.

    10/24/16QBBen RoethlisbergerKneeOUTWhile acknowledging that Roethlisberger -- who had surgery Monday to repair a torn meniscus -- could miss up to six weeks, Steelers president Art Rooney II noted Wednesday that the "best case" for the QB's return to action is two-to-three weeks, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. "I think that two-to-three is what you can characterize as best-case, but that's what we're hoping for," Rooney relayed to NFL Network on Wednesday. "Two-to-six is probably a fair range that somebody can put on it."

    Roethlisberger has already been ruled out this week and the Steelers are on bye in Week 8, which takes care of the first two weeks of his recovery. Beyond that, we'll consider the veteran QB week-to-week, with Landry Jones slated to start in his place in the meantime

    10/24/16DBShamarko ThomasGroinQUESTIONABLEThomas (groin) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Patriots.

    Thomas suffered a groin injury in Week 5 and hasn't participated in practice since.

    (Updated 10/21/2016)
    10/24/16WRMarkus WheatonShoulderQUESTIONABLEWheaton (shoulder) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Patriots.

    Wheaton didn't practice after missing last Sunday's game due to a shoulder injury, which will cost him his fourth contest of the year this weekend versus New England. His continued absence figures to benefit Eli Rogers and Sammie Coates, although the latter wideout's fractured thumb could impact his involvement to some degree.

    (Updated 10/21/2016)
    10/24/16RBDeAngelo WilliamsKneeQUESTIONABLEWilliams (knee) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Patriots.

    Williams' knee injury prevented him from practicing at all this week, so Le'Veon Bell should be prepared for an even heavier workload Sunday versus New England. In Williams' absence, Fitzgerald Toussaint embodies the Steelers' lone healthy running back behind Bell, who was already expected to see his usage increased in wake of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's (knee) injury.

    07/29/16WRMartavis BryantSuspensionSUSPENDBryant was never under consideration of being cut by the Steelers despite his recently imposed year-long suspension, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

    Bryant's multiple violations of the league's substance abuse policy triggered a minimum one-year suspension from the league, but the Steelers never considered releasing him, according to general manager Kevin Colbert. Instead, Pittsburgh will hope Bryant makes the necessary changes to his life to get reinstated next year, when he would have two years remaining on his contract with the team. With Bryant suspended, Steelers receivers Markus Wheaton and, more specifically, Sammie Coates, will be looked upon to take advantage of their increased opportunities this season.
