    04/27/16RBJamaal CharlesKneeQUESTIONABLECharles (knee) acknowledged that he probably won't participate in the Chiefs' OTAs, but is optimistic that he'll be back in time for training camp, Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports.

    Moreover, Charles relayed that at this time, he's at the stage of his rehab where he's running. The 29-year-old Charles suffered a season-ending ACL injury last October, but he appears on track to be ready to go in advance of Week 1, though if he were to experience any setbacks, fellow running backs Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware (who filled in for Charles last season) were both inked to contract extensions this offseason.

    04/27/16DBPhillip GainesKneePROBABLEChiefs CB Phillip Gaines suffered a sprained knee Monday, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports. 
    04/27/16LBJustin HoustonKneeQUESTIONABLEHouston (knee) will play in the 2016-17 season according to GM John Dorsey, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

    Houston went through ACL surgery back in February and was given a recovery timetable ranging from 6-12 months. The linebacker did not tear his ACL, but instead it was revealed that his ACL was not function properly. The 27-year-old missed the final five games of the regular season and saw limited action during the playoffs. Dorsey did not confirm a timetable for Houston's return or if he would be ready in time for the regular-season opener, but more information will arise as the Chiefs begin training camp this summer.

    04/27/16TEJames O'ShaughnessyFootPROBABLEO'Shaughnessy (foot) has been placed on season-ending injured reserve.

    O'Shaughnessy, a fifth-round rookie, had six catches for 87 yards in seven games. Now that he's done for the season, Demetrius Harris will serve as the No. 2 tight end behind Travis Kelce.

    04/27/16WRDe'Anthony ThomasConcussionPROBABLEThomas said he is still trying to recover from a concussion, the Kansas City Star reports.

    The Chiefs placed Thomas on the non-football illness list before Week 17, with head coach Andy Reid saying that the slot receiver's absence was not related to his concussion. Thomas apparently disagrees, hinting at significant discord between the player and organization. He still has two years remaining on his rookie contract, but it's no longer clear that Thomas will be back with the Chiefs in 2016.

    Pittsburgh Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    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.

    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.
