    09/25/16TETyler EifertAnkleOUTEifert (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Broncos.

    Eifert logged three consecutive limited practices this week, but was not expected to suit up despite the fact that he was never officially ruled out. A return next week for Thursday's matchup with Miami remains a possibility, but for the time being, C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Kroft stand to see the majority of tight end snaps for Cincinnati. Despite the short week ahead, a Week 4 return for Eifert has been the target since late-August.

    07/29/16LBVontaze BurfictSuspensionSUSPENDIn a media luncheon on Tuesday, head coach Marvin Lewis confirmed, "I am not going to play Vontaze Burfict in the preseason," Paul Dehner Jr. of Cincinnati.com reports.

    Burfict is suspended for the first three games of the regular season but is still eligible to play in the preseason by league rules. However, Lewis would rather play it safe and keep his star linebacker on the sidelines, keeping him safe from injuries and any on-the-field issue that could extend his suspension. Lewis said, "There's no reason for us to risk him getting hurt. It's hard because he's so competitive we have to continue to hold him back. One day he gets it the next day he wants to fight me on it. That's it. There's no reason to expose him to injury because he's too valuable." With Burfict out of the rotation, more reps will be allocated to young Bengals' linebackers.

    09/25/16DBSenquez GolsonFootOUTGolson (foot) is ruled out for Sunday's contest with the Eagles.

    Golson has not yet fully recovered from the Lisfranc surgery that he underwent in early August, but the 23-year-old is making tremendous progress. According to various reports, Golson is ahead of schedule and could be nearing a return to action in the coming weeks.

    09/25/16RBRoosevelt Nix-JonesBackOUTNix (back) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's contest.

    Nix is unlikely to suit up for Sunday's date with Philadelphia which means that he could be in line to miss a third consecutive game. On the bright side, it does appear that he will be able to play within the coming weeks regardless of his status for Sunday.

    08/19/16RBLe'Veon BellSuspensionSUSPENDBell is among the Steelers' key players not slated to play in Thursday's preseason finale against the Panthers.

    The same applies to DeAngelo Williams, who is set to fill in for Bell while he serves a three-game suspension to start the season. On Thursday, the team's depth backs will have an opportunity to make their cases for complementary roles heading into the regular season. Bell's next game action is slated to arrive on Oct. 2, when the Steelers face the Chargers at home in Week 4.

    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.
