    05/18/16RBLe'Veon BellKneeQUESTIONABLEBell (knee) said Tuesday he will be 100 percent healthy for the start of training camp, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Bell is already doing individual work, including running and cutting, at the first round of OTAs. Although the Steelers will likely take things slow, Bell is nearly seven months removed from tearing his MCL, which should give him more than enough to get ready for camp. Despite suffering season-ending injuries the past two years, he has a strong argument to the first running back drafted, offering an unparalleled combination of running ability, receiving skills and team context.

    04/08/16TELadarius GreenAnkle Green, 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.

    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.

    02/19/16DBMike MitchellShoulder Mitchell 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.

    04/27/16DBNolan CarrollAnklePROBABLECarroll (leg) has agreed to re-sign with the Eagles on a one-year contract, ESPN reports.

    Carroll started the first 11 games of last season before suffering a broken fibula in a Thanksgiving loss to the Lions. He may have to compete for a starting job in 2016, as the Eagles traded away Byron Maxwell but did sign Leodis McKelvin. 2015 second-round selection Eric Rowe also figures to compete for a starting spot on the outside.

    04/27/16DLBennie LoganCalfPROBABLELogan (calf) was placed on IR on Saturday, Philadelphia Inquirer writer Jeff McLane reports.

    Logan is a fine run-stopping interior lineman and his absence leaves Philadelphia a bit more vulnerable at the nose tackle position against the Giants.

    (Updated 01/02/2016)
    04/08/16DBRon BrooksNeck Brooks (neck) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

    Neck and shoulder issues cost Brooks time recently, even forcing him into the concussion protocol, though it's not entirely clear whether his placement on IR is related or due to a new injury. Brooks played primarily on special teams this season, recording 12 total tackles (11 solo).
