10/09/15CBCortez AllenKneeQUESTIONABLESteelers cornerback Cortez Allen was a full participant for practice Friday.

Allen is on track to make his first appearance since Week 1 after going down with a knee injury. The Steelers will likely need all the help they can get in the secondary with Phillip Rivers and the rest of the Chargers set to face off Monday night.

10/09/15DTDaniel McCullersKneePROBABLEThe Steelers have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday night's Week 9 matchup with the Ravens: cornerbacks Ike Taylor (forearm) and B.W. Webb, safety Ross Ventrone (hamstring), quarterback Landry Jones, nose tackle Dan McCullers, guard Christopher Hubbard and wide receiver Justin Brown.
10/09/15QBBen RoethlisbergerKneeQUESTIONABLESteelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (knee) is more likely to miss six weeks than four, per Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

Roethlisberger has a timetable of 4-6 weeks, which is typical for a sprained MCL. The concern is that he's also dealing with a nasty bone bruise that might actually take longer to heal than the sprain. However, recovery from the bone bruise is largely about pain management, and Roethlisberger's on-field toughness is beyond reproach.

10/09/15LBRyan ShazierShoulderPROBABLESteelers linebacker Ryan Shazier (shoulder) was a full participant at practice Friday.

Shazier missed the previous two games with a shoulder injury, prompting some frustration from the 23 year old, according to Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. While his status for Monday will likely be decided by head coach Mike Tomlin, early indications seem to suggest Shazier should be able to suit up against the Chargers.

10/09/15TEMatt SpaethHandPROBABLESpaeth (hand) practiced fully Thursday.

Spaeth is off the fantasy radar, but his likely return to action this week will bolster the team's depth at tight end behind starter Heath Miller.

10/09/15SRoss VentroneHamstringPROBABLESteelers cornerback Cortez Allen (thumb) and safety Ross Ventrone (hamstring) are active for Monday's game at Tennessee after being listed as probable.
10/09/15WRMarkus WheatonAnklePROBABLEWheaton (ankle) practiced fully Thursday.

Wheaton should be fine for Monday night's game against the Chargers, though the impending return of Martavis Bryant caps Wheaton's Week 5 fantasy upside in the Steelers' Mike Vick-helmed passing offense.
