Steelers' DeAngelo Williams: Could fill in early on
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With Le'Veon Bell potentially facing a four-game suspension to start the 2016 campaign, Williams could head the Steelers' backfield early on this season.

Previous question marks surrounding Bell had revolved around the health of his surgically-repaired knee, but now the more pressing issue appears to be his potential four-game suspension. With that in mind, Williams' fantasy value gets at least a temporary boost, especially considering how capably the 33-year-old filled in last season for Bell, who missed 10 contests due to injuries, as well as a suspension.

Steelers' Le'Veon Bell: Facing four-game suspension
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Bell (knee) could be given a four-game suspension by the NFL for missing a recent drug test, according to Dan Graziano of ESPN.

The report clarifies that Bell did not fail a test, but simply did not show up for one recently, and the reason a suspension hasn't been announced is because he is appealing the punishment. Bell was suspended for the first three games of last season, which was then reduced to two, for a violation of the league's drug policy, and if he is forced to sit out again, DeAngelo Williams will likely start in his place.

Steelers' DeAngelo Williams: Past his foot injury
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Williams reiterated Tuesday that he is past the foot injury that sidelined him at the end of last season, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

With that in mind, Williams -- who turned 33 in April -- declared Tuesday that "I am in the best shape I have ever been in my entire life." Williams -- who recorded 200 carries for 907 yards and 11 TDs in 16 games (including 10 starts) for the Steelers in 2015 -- appears destined to work in a complementary role this coming season, with top back Le'Veon Bell (knee) slated to return to the mix. That said, given the success Williams enjoyed in a Steelers' uniform last year, we'd expect the team to keep him involved in the offense, with an eye toward keeping Bell fresh. Per Bell, "there are definitely going to be packages where me and (DeAngelo) are going to be out there at the same time...I'm ready for that."

Steelers' Mike Mitchell: Ahead of schedule in recovery from shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Mitchell is ahead of schedule in his recovery from shoulder and hand surgeries, The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Mitchell hasn't missed a game in either of the past two seasons, but underwent a pair of surgeries to repair lingering injuries this offseason. The veteran went under the knife after the Steelers were knocked out in the divisional round by the Broncos, and initially planned on taking his rehab slow in order to avoid any setbacks before training camp. However, he quickly progressed ahead of schedule in his recovery and fully participated in June's minicamp just over four months removed from surgery. Mitchell should be full-go for the commencement of training camp on July 28.
