    10/23/16TMarcus GilbertANKLEOUTThe Steelers created $6.2 million in cap space by restructuring two contracts, according to a report from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
    10/23/16DECameron 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.

    10/23/16QBBen 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

    Wallace hasn't stepped on the field this season and it's still unclear when he may be able to.

    10/23/16WRMarkus WheatonSHOULDEROUTWheaton (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.

    10/23/16RBDeAngelo WilliamsKNEEOUTWilliams (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.

    10/23/16TETyler EifertBACK, ANKLEQUESTIONABLEThe Bengals plan to have Eifert (back/ankle) make his season debut Sunday against the Browns, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

    It's unclear how many snaps he'd see, and in any event, you should check back before kickoff to confirm, but it looks likely Eifert will at least see some action this week.
