Steelers' Sammie Coates: Reveals groin surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coates (hand) revealed he has undergone groin surgery this offseason, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Coates' well-documented hand surgery has been the focus of his offseason activity thus far, but it appears he's been dealing with a lower-body ailment as well. It isn't clear when he went under the knife, but this latest procedure only complicates the receiver's timeline for a return. At this point, Coates appears truly questionable to be ready for the start of team workouts in April.

Steelers' Sammie Coates: Undergoes successful surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coates (hand) underwent successful surgery to repair fractures and tendon damage in his left hand, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

Coates spent the majority of the season dealing with the injuries in his fingers, derailing a productive campaign that began with 421 receiving yards and two touchdowns in the first five games. The remainder of the season, the wideout recorded just two receptions for 14 yards. With surgery out of the way, Coates can shift his focus to rehabbing, as he hopes to be ready for offseason workouts with the team. Look for more updates on his status to come throughout the offseason, as he competes for a top spot on the Steelers' depth chart.

Steelers' Sammie Coates: Surgery not ruled out
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Coates will have his left hand evaluated over the next few weeks to determine whether he needs surgery, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports.

Coates' 2016 campaign was derailed after he suffered a fractured thumb and a laceration that required stitches on his left hand early in the season. Although Coates downplayed his hand problems, the clearly affected him as the year unfolded nd he must still be carrying some complications if surgery hasn't been ruled out. While any potential procedure should leave him enough time to be ready once the Steelers reconvene for next season, it'll nonetheless be worthwhile to see whether Coates ultimately needs an operation to fix his troublesome left hand.

Steelers' Sammie Coates: Available for playoff opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coates (hamstring), who was in uniform for the Steelers' Week 17 in over the Browns, but did not play, will be available for Sunday's playoff game against the Dolphins, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Coates, who finished up the regular season with 21 catches (on 49 targets) for 435 yards and two TDs in 14 games, displayed some big play ability out of the gate in 2016, but his production has essentially dried up since Week 5, when the wideout logged a 6/132/2 stat line.
