    04/27/16DBBrandon FlowersKneePROBABLEFlowers was placed on injured reserve Saturday, ESPN's Eric Williams reports.

    The injuries just keep coming for the Chargers. Flowers, a key cog in the team's defense, will join Corey Liueget on the sidelines after the team opted to place both players on IR. Steve Williams or Greg Ducre will likely get the start in place of Flowers.

    04/27/16RBMelvin GordonKneePROBABLEGordon (knee) recently admitted he was "terrible" during his rookie season, but he's confident that the year of experience will help him in 2016, ESPN.com reports.

    The 15th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, Gordon posted an ugly 184-641-0 rushing line (3.5 YPC) in 14 games as a rookie, eventually missing the final two contests with a meniscus injury. He should recover from early-January surgery before the start of training camp, and he'll likely get most of the first-team snaps, albeit with Danny Woodhead handling third-down duties. As he admitted, Gordon was a big part of the problem during his rookie season, but it obviously isn't his fault that the San Diego offensive line was ravaged by an unusual number of injuries.

    04/27/16WRSteve JohnsonGroinPROBABLEAfter missing the final four games of the regular season, Johnson finished 2015 with 45 catches for 497 yards and three touchdowns in ten games.

    Johnson missed a total of six games because a hamstring injury caused him to miss Weeks 5 and 6 in addition to missing the last four games of the year due to a groin injury. When he was healthy, he was a productive slot receiver who would typically make four or five catches per game on a good passing team. Johnson should be back for more of the same in 2016.

    04/27/16DLCorey LiugetFootPROBABLELiuget (foot) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, ESPN's Eric Williams reports.

    Liuget recorded 34 tackles (28 solo) and 3 sacks before injuring his foot in a Week 13 contest against the Broncos -- an injury that will end his season. The team activated defensive lineman Darius Philon (hip) from the injured reserve/designated to return list to replace Liuget.

    04/27/16RBBranden OliverToePROBABLEOliver -- who is dealing with turf toe -- was on crutches, with his right foot in a protective boot Monday, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    If Oliver is forced to miss time, Melvin Gordon and Danny Woodhead should pick up some extra snaps in the Chargers' backfield, with Donald Brown a candidate to be activated for next Monday's game against the Bears.

    (Updated 11/02/2015)
    04/27/16DBJason VerrettHamstringPROBABLEVerrett (hamstring) has begun working out with fellow Chargers teammates, ESPN's Eric D. Williams reports.

    Verrett, who missed the Chargers final game of the regular season due to a hamstring injury, was spotted working out with a few members of the secondary at a training facility in California. San Diego's leader in interceptions last year, Verrett is expected to take over more of a leadership role on defense with veteran captain Eric Weddle widely expected to sign with another team during the offseason.

    Pittsburgh Injuries

    04/27/16RBLe'Veon BellKneeQUESTIONABLEBell -- who tore his MCL in Week 8 of the 2015 season -- is pleased with the work he has been doing of late with Owens Recovery Science, ESPN.com reports.

    Per the report, Owens "focuses on maintaining muscles around a rehabbing knee using a treatment called blood flow restriction." Though Bell's injury rehab appears to be progressing in the right direction, at this stage the Steelers don't have a precise timetable for the running back's return, but Bell does hopes to be back in time to be ready for Week 1 of the upcoming season.

    04/27/16DBSenquez GolsonShoulderPROBABLEThe Steelers made a slew of roster moves Monday, including placing offensive tackle Mike Adams on the PUP list to begin the season.
    04/27/16TELadarius GreenAnklePROBABLEGreen, 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.

    04/27/16DBMike MitchellShoulderPROBABLEMitchell 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.

    04/27/16KShaun SuishamKneeQUESTIONABLESuisham (knee) will have to fend off competition for the Steelers' kicking job, Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

    Susiham suffered a torn ACL in his non-kicking knee in August, causing him to miss the entire 2015 season. Rookie replacement Chris Boswell filled in more than capably, converting 36 of his 39 field-goal attempts and 27 of his 28 extra-point attempts between the regular season and playoffs. Suisham was excellent from 2012 to 2014, so he should at least have the opportunity to win back his job. Even if Boswell wins the battle, Suisham might find a landing spot with a different team.

    (Updated 02/16/2016)
    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.
