    08/15/16QBCarson WentzRibQUESTIONABLEWentz (ribs) is on track to return for Thursday's preseason finale against the Jets, Dave Spadaro of the Eagles' official site reports.

    Although he isn't playing in Saturday's exhibition, Wentz threw passes on the field before the game, hinting at progress since earlier this week when he was held out of practice. If he does indeed suit up, Wentz could get an extended look in Thursday's game, as starter Sam Bradford will presumably be rested.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/09/16WRJordan MatthewsKneePROBABLEMatthews (knee) will not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Colts, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Matthews hasn't practiced since suffering a bone bruise Aug. 5, but he did increase his activity level the past week, and he promised he'll be ready for Week 1. Once healthy, Matthews will be the Eagles' clear-cut top wideout, with Nelson Agholor, Rueben Randle, Dorial Green-Beckham and Josh Huff all jostling for position behind him. With Mathews sidelined, Huff is expected to join Agholor in Saturday's starting lineup.

    08/09/16RBWendell SmallwoodQuadPROBABLESmallwood left Saturday's preseason contest at Indianapolis in order to be evaluated for a head injury.

    Smallwood has spent the majority of his first preseason tending to a quadriceps injury but was cleared to take the field Saturday. The rookie was faring well prior to his departure, recording two carries for 11 yards, one reception for five yards, and one kick return for 30 yards. If he's indeed diagnosed with a concussion, Smallwood's chances of supplanting fellow running back Kenjon Barner from the third spot on the depth chart would be hindered, to say the least.

    08/27/16DLCameron HeywardAnklePROBABLEHeyward (ankle) said he expects to be ready for Week 1, despite suffering a high ankle sprain in Friday's preseason game against the Saints, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    While not completely unheard of, two weeks would represent a very quick recovery from a high ankle sprain. In all likelihood, Heyward will be no better than questionable for Week 1, perhaps even needing to miss the first few games of the season. It would be a big loss for Pittsburgh's defense, though the unit does boast improved depth in the front seven this year.

    08/15/16QBBruce GradkowskiHamstringOUTGradkowski, who is dealing with a left hamstring injury, is going to be out for "a number of weeks," per coach Mike Tomlin, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    The veteran QB could miss the rest of the preseason and in Gradkowski's absence, Dustin Vaughan figures to see added practice reps behind Ben Roethlisberger and Landry Jones.

    08/11/16RBLe'Veon BellSuspensionSUSPENDBell (suspension) gained 21 yards on three carries and 37 yards on five receptions (five targets) in Friday's preseason game against the Saints.

    Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown only made brief appearances, but Bell played deep into the second quarter, perhaps because he uncharacteristically lost a fumble early in the game. Regardless, Bell appeared to be in mid-season form, showing no signs of the knee injury that brought his 2015 campaign to an early end. After he serves a three-game suspension to start the season, Bell should slide right back in as the premiere asset at his position. DeAngelo Williams figures to handle a heavy workload in his absence, with Fitzgerald Toussaint and/or Daryl Richardson occasionally mixing in.

    08/02/16DBSenquez GolsonFootDOUBTFULGolson (foot) claims he is a targeting a return to practice seven weeks from now, Dale Lolley of the Observer-Reporter reports.

    Golson underwent Lisfranc surgery roughly two weeks ago, but the former second round pick from 2015 is already mapping out his return to action. Just 23-years-old, Golson possesses tremendous upside and the Steelers remain optimistic that he can still carve out a role with the defense at some point in the season.

    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.
