    05/18/16RBLe'Veon BellKneeQUESTIONABLEBell (knee) said Tuesday he will be 100 percent healthy for the start of training camp, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Bell is already doing individual work, including running and cutting, at the first round of OTAs. Although the Steelers will likely take things slow, Bell is nearly seven months removed from tearing his MCL, which should give him more than enough to get ready for camp. Despite suffering season-ending injuries the past two years, he has a strong argument to the first running back drafted, offering an unparalleled combination of running ability, receiving skills and team context.

    04/08/16TELadarius GreenAnkle Green, who underwent ankle surgery following the 2015 season, expects to be ready in advance of training camp, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Green dealt with some ankle issues last season, but the situation was addressed by the procedure. The Steelers put the tight end through a physical before inking him to a four-year, $20 million deal, so evidently there's no real injury concerns on their part. In any case, Green fills a big need for the Steelers at the tight end position following the retirement of Heath Miller, who caught 60 passes for the team in 2015. While Miller -- a long-time fixture in the Pittsburgh offense -- isn't an easy act to follow, Green is viewed as a player with untapped potential, after having worked behind Antonio Gates in San Diego over the past four seasons.

    03/14/16WRMartavis 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.

    02/19/16DBMike MitchellShoulder Mitchell confirmed Friday that he's had surgery on his left shoulder and left hand this offseason, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

    Mitchell has been afflicted by injury throughout his two seasons with the Steelers, but no DNPs dot his game log during that stretch. In 2015, he racked up a career-high 80 tackles (58 solo), while contributing three interceptions, two forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries. It's unclear if he'll be ready for the start of the offseason program in April, but his availability for the 2016 season doesn't appear to be in peril.

    05/18/16RBJamaal CharlesKneeQUESTIONABLECharles (knee) will take part in individual drills at Tuesday's minicamp practice, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

    Charles has been present at offseason practices for rehab and off-field work for the past few weeks, but he's yet to make an on-field appearance alongside his teammates. Tuesday thus marks a significant step in his recovery from the torn ACL suffered in Week 5 last year, with all reports to date suggesting that Charles is on/ahead of schedule. There is some thought that Charles, even if he returns to full health, might lose touches to Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West, who formed an effective duo in the superstar's absence last season. Prior to the injury, Charles was handling a huge workload while playing the vast majority of offensive snaps; he had 71 carries, 21 receptions, 541 scrimmage yards and five touchdowns in just 4.5 games.

    04/27/16LBJustin HoustonKneeQUESTIONABLEHouston (knee) won't be ready for the start of next month's training camp, ESPN.com reports.

    The Chiefs still do not have a concrete timetable outlined for Houston, who underwent ACL surgery in February, though GM John Dorsey maintains that the linebacker will play for the team at some point this coming season. With that in mind, Dorsey noted of Houston, "I don't know how much he's going to do in camp. But, listen, he's where he needs to be right now and he's a hard worker. He's bound and determined to get back. We'll just see how it works out. There is no timetable. It's just when he's right, he's right and we'll roll." Houston, who racked up 22 sacks in 2014, is coming off a 2015 campaign in which he recorded 30 tackles and 7.5 sacks in 11 games.
