Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Four tackles, fumble recovery against Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Tuitt recorded four tackles (two solo) and a fumble recovery in the Steelers' 30-12 playoff win against the Dolphins on Sunday.

The fumble recovery off a James Harrison strip sack inside Pittsburgh's red zone preserved a 20-6 halftime lead from which Miami never recovered. This season, Tuitt was on the field for 73 percent of all defensive snaps (more than any other Steelers' defensive lineman), despite spending the last two games of the regular season on the sideline nursing a sprained knee. He recorded 37 tackles (28 solo), including four sacks this season, which was a bit of a step backward after he totaled 54 tackles (39 solo), including 6.5 sacks in 2015.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Practices in full Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt (knee) practiced in full Wednesday.

After practicing in full Wednesday, it seems like a safe bet that Tuitt will suit up for Sunday's playoff game with the Dolphins. Earlier this week Tuitt indicated that he'd play and it appears his confidence was validated during Wednesday's practice.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Wants to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt (knee) said he will play Sunday against the Dolphins, Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Tuitt seems confident in his ability to take the field Sunday, but he'll still have to get the approval of the team. He has spent the last two games on the sideline nursing a sprained knee. Look for more updates to come once practice reports are released later this week.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Ruled out Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Tuitt (knee) will not play in the Steelers' season finale Sunday versus the Browns.

Tuitt will miss his second consecutive game due to a troubling knee issue. With Sunday's game representing the conclusion of the regular season, the third-year defensive lineman will finish his disappointing 2016 campaign with 38 tackles, three sacks and zero interceptions, with each number representing a drop from the prior season's figure.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Held out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Tuitt (knee) didn't participate in practice Wednesday.

Tuitt hasn't played or practiced since injuring his knee in Week 15. The Steelers already are locked into the No. 3 seed for the playoffs and may look to rest Tuitt to ensure his health for next week. If he's held out again expect Ricardo Mathews and Leterrius Walton to see some extra snaps.
