    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

    10/23/16SShamarko ThomasGROINOUTThomas (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)
    10/23/16CCody WallaceKNEEOUTWallace (knee) has been ruled out of Sunday's matchup with the Patriots.

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

    (Updated 10/21/2016)
    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.

    (Updated 10/21/2016)
    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.

    San Francisco Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    10/23/16DTGlenn DorseyKNEEQUESTIONABLEDorsey (knee) will play Sunday against the Bills.

    Dorsey was questionable heading into the matchup but will give it go this Sunday. Should he see his reps monitored, look for Mike Purcell to see increased action.

    (Updated 10/16/2016)
    10/23/16RBCarlos HydeSHOULDEROUTHyde (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.

    As expected, the 49ers' workhorse will miss at least one game, leaving the team's backfield in the hands of Mike Davis and Shaun Draughn, with DuJuan Harris getting a call up from the practice squad. Hyde doesn't believe the injury is a long-term concern, and with the 49ers on bye in Week 8, it's quite possible he'll only miss the one game. Davis is the favorite to lead the team in carries on Sunday, after replacing Draughn as the No. 2 running back in last week's loss to the Bills. Draughn is still the favorite for passing-down work, and he could also end up getting more carries if he outplays Davis early in the game.

    (Updated 10/21/2016)
    10/23/16CBRashard RobinsonCONCUSSIONQUESTIONABLERobinson sustained a concussion Sunday against the Bills and will not return, ESPN's Nick Wagoner reports.

    With Jimmie Ward (quadriceps) inactive for the game, JaCorey Shepherd and Dontae Johnson are likely in line for additional playing time.

    (Updated 10/16/2016)
    10/23/16WRTorrey SmithBACKQUESTIONABLESmith (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.

    A mid-week addition to Thursday's injury report, Smith still managed to log limited practices both Thursday and Friday. His participation in any capacity suggests he should be able to play, but if not, Rod Streater and/or Aaron Burbridge would join Quinton Patton and Jeremy Kerley in three-wide sets. Even in a favorable matchup, the San Francisco passing game offers little cause for excitement.

    (Updated 10/21/2016)
    09/20/16DLIan WilliamsUndisclosedOUTWilliams was placed on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    This move was made to make room on the roster for offensive lineman Anthony Davis who was reinstated by the league from retirement Saturday. It remains to be seen when Williams will play again.

    (Updated 07/30/2016)
    09/05/16WRDeAndre SmelterHamstringQUESTIONABLESmelter (hamstring) was added to the 49ers' practice squad, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports.

    Smelter was cut by the 49ers prior to the season after suffering a hamstring injury during training camp. Prior to the injury, the 2015 fourth-round pick had light breakout potential due to his size and athleticism. It is unclear if and when the 49ers will give Smelter a chance on the 53-man roster, or even if his hamstring injury has fully healed. While he is definitely not a player worth picking up right now, there is still potential for a late-season appearance where the team tries to get a better look at their former top receiving prospect on a team devoid of reliable options at that position.
