    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.

    08/05/16DBMarqueston HuffSuspensionSUSPENDHuff has been suspended one game for a violation of the NFL's Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.

    Huff has played 63 and 81 percent of the special teams snaps for the Titans in his first two professional campaigns, respectively. Along the way, the safety has accrued 33 tackles (22 solo), four passes defended, one interception for a touchdown, and one sack in 30 career games. After missing the Titans' season opener on Sept. 11 against the Vikings, Huff will be eligible to play in Week 2 at Detroit.

    08/04/16WRKendall WrightHamstringQUESTIONABLEWright (hamstring strain) is expected to miss Saturday's preseason game against the Raiders, the Tennessean reports.

    Wright, who has been running on a side field of late during practices, is thus a candidate to see some action in the Titans' preseason finale against the Dolphins next week. On the plus side, the Tennessean report notes that Wright, who posted career-lows in catches (36) and yards (408) in 10 games last season, has "drawn praise from the coaching staff for the work he's done while injured." Once his health is re-established, look for Wright to remain a presence in the slot for Titans, with Rishard Matthews and Tajae Sharpe appearing on track to start on the outside for the team.

    08/01/16LBAaron WallaceAnkleQUESTIONABLEWallace (ankle) returned to practice Friday, Jim Wyatt of Titans Online reports.

    Wallace suffered a high ankle sprain during practice in early August, forcing the rookie to the sideline for a matter of weeks. The Titans take on the Panthers in their second preseason contest Saturday, but Wallace may not be ready to return to game action at this point. His next opportunity to play would be the following Saturday in Oakland.

    04/27/16WRAndrew TurzilliSuspensionSUSPENDTurzilli is dealing with both a groin and thumb injury, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports.

    It's unclear exactly when he suffered the injuries, but it's likely going to keep him limited for the time being. The Titans face off with the Panthers on Saturday in the team's second preseason outing, so it remains questionable whether or not Turzilli will be available. Turzilli is suspended for the first four games of the season for his use of performance-enhancing substances, making the injury just another hit to his chances of making the final roster.
