    10/08/15CBCortez AllenKneeQUESTIONABLEAllen (knee) practiced fully Thursday.

    Allen seems likely to suit up Monday against the Chargers for the first time since Week 1, when he recorded six tackles in a loss to the Patriots.

    10/08/15DTDaniel McCullersKneePROBABLEThe Steelers have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday night's Week 9 matchup with the Ravens: cornerbacks Ike Taylor (forearm) and B.W. Webb, safety Ross Ventrone (hamstring), quarterback Landry Jones, nose tackle Dan McCullers, guard Christopher Hubbard and wide receiver Justin Brown.
    10/08/15QBBen RoethlisbergerKneeQUESTIONABLESteelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (knee) is more likely to miss six weeks than four, per Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

    Roethlisberger has a timetable of 4-6 weeks, which is typical for a sprained MCL. The concern is that he's also dealing with a nasty bone bruise that might actually take longer to heal than the sprain. However, recovery from the bone bruise is largely about pain management, and Roethlisberger's on-field toughness is beyond reproach.

    10/08/15LBRyan ShazierShoulderPROBABLESteelers linebacker Ryan Shazier (shoulder) practiced fully Thursday.

    We'll track Shazier's status as the week rolls along, but his full practice participation bodes well for his chances of suiting up Monday night against the Chargers.

    10/08/15TEMatt SpaethHandPROBABLESpaeth (hand) practiced fully Thursday.

    Spaeth is off the fantasy radar, but his likely return to action this week will bolster the team's depth at tight end behind starter Heath Miller.

    10/08/15SRoss VentroneHamstringQUESTIONABLESteelers cornerback Cortez Allen (thumb) and safety Ross Ventrone (hamstring) are active for Monday's game at Tennessee after being listed as probable.
    10/08/15WRMarkus WheatonAnklePROBABLEWheaton (ankle) practiced fully Thursday.

    Wheaton should be fine for Monday night's game against the Chargers, though the impending return of Martavis Bryant caps Wheaton's Week 5 fantasy upside in the Steelers' Mike Vick-helmed passing offense.
