    10/24/16DLCameron 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.

    10/24/16QBBen RoethlisbergerKneeOUTRoethlisberger (knee) did some individual work at Tuesday's practice, saying afterward that he hopes to rejoin his teammates at some point next week, ESPN.com's Jeremy Fowler reports.

    Roethlisberger had surgery last Monday to repair a torn meniscus, with his estimated timetable of two-to-three weeks subsequently referred to as a "best case" scenario by Steelers president Art Rooney II, who said the real expectation is anywhere in the range of two-to-six weeks. Roethlisberger threw some passes to tight ends at Tuesday's practice, but it doesn't mean much that he's able to make throws while standing still. Real information regarding his potential Week 9 availability probably won't be available until next week. The Steelers are currently on bye ahead of a matchup with the rival Ravens.

    10/24/16DBShamarko ThomasGroinQUESTIONABLEThomas (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)
    10/24/16WRMarkus WheatonShoulderQUESTIONABLEWheaton (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)
    10/24/16RBDeAngelo WilliamsKneeQUESTIONABLEWilliams (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.

    10/27/16CBPerrish CoxCONCUSSIONOUTCox (concussion) did not practice Wednesday and has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Jaguars.

    Cox remains under the league's concussion protocol and will therefore be unavailable for Thursday. Brice McCain is next in line for an expanded role at cornerback for the Titans.

    10/27/16LBKevin DoddFOOTQUESTIONABLEDodd (foot) is active for Sunday's Week 7 game against the Colts, John Glennon of The Tennessean reports.

    After shaking off the foot injury, Dodd should be cleared to assume his usual depth role at outside linebacker behind starters Derrick Morgan and Brian Orakpo. Dodd has recorded four tackles and one sack over six appearances this season.

    (Updated 10/23/2016)
    10/27/16SRashad JohnsonNECKOUTJohnson (neck) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Jaguars.

    Johnson wasn't able to practice throughout the week due to the neck issue, and will therefore be unable to play in the Titans' Week 8 matchup. Kevin Byard figures to get the start at free safety in Johnson's absence.

    (Updated 10/26/2016)
    10/27/16WRTajae SharpeKNEEQUESTIONABLESharpe (knee) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Jaguars.

    The status of Sharpe, who the Titans listed as a limited practice participant both Tuesday and Wednesday, will need to be monitored as Thursday's 8:25 ET kickoff approaches, though his fantasy output has typically been modest since his seven-catch, 76-yard effort in Week 1. Sharpe did, however, bounce back from a zero-catch Week 6 to haul in four of six targets for 59 yards this past Sunday against the Colts.
