    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.

    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.

    10/24/16TEEric EbronKneeQUESTIONABLEEbron (ankle/knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

    Although he was spotted running on a side field Wednesday, the third-year tight end still hasn't practiced since injuring his knee in Week 4. The Detroit offense hasn't relied on his replacements at tight end, instead looking to WRs Anquan Boldin and Golden Tate to fill the void in the short passing game. Tight ends accounted for just one of the Lions' 51 targets the past two weeks, with Clay Harbor drawing the sole look. Considering pass-catching back Theo Riddick (ankle) will also be absent, Boldin and Tate could be busy again.

    10/24/16LBDeAndre LevyQuadricepsOUTLevy (quadriceps) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

    Having not played since the season opener, Levy still hasn't participated in practice either and remains without an estimate for return.

    (Updated 10/21/2016)
    10/24/16DLHaloti NgataShoulderQUESTIONABLENgata (shoulder) will not play Sunday against the Redskins, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

    Ngata was given a 2-3 week timetable for return prior to missing last week's game. Thus, there's evidently optimism he could return in Week 8.

    10/24/16RBTheo RiddickAnkleQUESTIONABLERiddick (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Washington, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

    Absent from practice for a second straight week, Riddick never seemed to have much shot at making his return. Dwayne Washington (ankle) is listed as questionable after logging limited practices all week, suggesting he at least has some chance to join a Detroit backfield that was led by Zach Zenner and Justin Forsett in last week's win over the Titans.

    (Updated 10/21/2016)
    10/24/16RBDwayne WashingtonAnkleQUESTIONABLEWashington (ankle) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Redskins.

    Joining Theo Riddick (ankle) on the sideline, Washington will again yield the backfield to Zach Zenner and, to a lesser extent, Justin Forsett.

    (Updated 10/23/2016)
    09/11/16LBJosh BynesKneeOUTBynes (knee) reached an injury settlement, and was cut by the Lions on Saturday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Bynes had been placed on the injured-reserve with a knee injury. The severity of his knee injury is still unknown. He had originally projected to provide linebacker depth for the Lions this season.
