    05/17/16RBArian FosterAchillesQUESTIONABLEFoster (Achilles) visited the Dolphins on Tuesday but left without a contract offer, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. Afterward, Miami executive Mike Tannenbaum told Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald that Foster is "a little bit away" from being healthy.

    Foster is five months removed from tearing the Achilles in his right foot, so it's no surprise that he remains in the midst of rehabilitation. Coming off a three-year span in which he appeared in 25 of a possible 48 games, an incentive-laden deal is likely in the 29-year-old's future, but a team such as the Dolphins could use his veteran presence to groom 2015 fifth-round pick Jay Ajayi with Lamar Miller poised to serve as Foster's replacement in Houston. While other organizations are sure to inquire about Foster, his status for the 2016 campaign remains in limbo.

    04/27/16LBJadeveon ClowneyFootPROBABLEClowney says he is 100 percent healthy as the Texans begin OTAs, ESPN.com reports.

    Clowney missed Week 17 and the Texans' wild-card playoff loss after suffering a Lisfranc injury last season, but fortunately didn't require surgery over the offseason. As a result, Clowney is fully healthy going into the upcoming campaign and participated in Monday's start of OTAs. Still just 23 years old, the former No. 1 pick certainly made strides over the course of his 13 games played last season, finishing with 40 tackles and 4.5 sacks, and will look to build on that success this term.

    James has been playing with a foot injury the past few weeks and it finally caught up with him.

    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.

    04/27/16DBMike 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.

    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.
