Steelers' Karlos Williams: Signs with Steelers after suspension lifted
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams' 10-game suspension was rescinded Tuesday, after which the Steelers signed the running back to a reserve/future contract, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Williams impressed on the field as a rookie in 2015, spelling the Bills' LeSean McCoy to the tune of 517 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground in 11 games. Furthermore, Williams displayed some pass-catching acumen with 11 catches (on 14 targets) for 96 yards and two touchdowns. However, his first full offseason didn't go as swimmingly, as he showed up to spring workouts significantly overweight before he was handed a four-game ban for a violation of the substance abuse policy. After landing on the non-football illness list at the outset of training camp, he made a brief foray in drills after passing a physical but was cut loose a short time later on Aug. 20. Eventually landing on the Steelers' practice squad on Oct. 12, Williams was tabbed with a lengthier suspension in late November for another violation of the policy on substances of abuse. Although his career seemed to be hanging on by a thread entering the offseason, Thursday's development could be the jump start he requires to find his way in the NFL.

Steelers' Ladarius Green: Intends to return next season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green (concussion) is not considering retirement and hopes to return to the Steelers for the 2017 season, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports.

Green signed a four-year, $20 million contract with the Steelers last offseason, but went on to make just six appearances during the 2016 campaign due to ankle and concussion problems. While those issues limited the 26-year-old to 18 receptions for 304 yards and one score, his reported concussion history is the reason for most of the concern over his status in Pittsburgh going forward. For his part, Green said he's focused on bouncing back with an improved 2017 season, but it'll be interesting to see if both his body and the Steelers organization afford him that opportunity next term.

Steelers' Le'Veon Bell: Carried groin injury into Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell's groin was bothering him prior to Sunday's game against the Patriots, when he was forced into an early exit after aggravating the ailment further, Barry Wilner of The Associated Press reports.

Bell admitted after Sunday's defeat that he'd been internally micromanaging his injury in the buildup to Pittsburgh's AFC championship appearance, when he thought he'd be able to play through the discomfort he'd been experiencing. However, after his groin problem was aggravated by a tackle he took early on, Bell estimated he was about 50 percent healthy, resulting in him removing himself from the contest after be handed just six carries. With the Steelers' season now over, Bell should have plenty of time to return to full health this offseason, but his revelation that his groin was an issue prior to Sunday at least provides some extra context regarding his early exit.

Steelers' James Harrison: Planning to return in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Harrison plans to return for what will be his 14th NFL season in 2017, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Harrison will be 39 when the 2017 season begins. Despite his age, the veteran linebacker has continued to be productive, racking up 73 tackles, 7.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, and an interception while playing in 18 games (including playoffs) in 2016. Harrison could see a slight reduction in playing time as the team looks to keep him fresh and impactful at his age, but he's given no indications of slowing down and figures to be a quality defender for Pittsburgh once again next year.

Steelers' Darrius Heyward-Bey: Held catchless in championship game loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Heyward-Bey (illness) failed to catch either of his two targets in Sunday's 36-17 AFC championship game loss to the Patriots.

The veteran speedster was targeted deep on the two passes he saw -- including one in the end zone -- but Ben Roethlisberger misfired on both occasions. In relatively desperate need of offense after Le'Veon Bell exited early with a groin injury and with Tom Brady and his receivers hitting on all cylinders, the Steelers still curiously opted to primarily rely on the young and inexperienced trio of Eli Rogers, Cobi Hamilton and Sammie Coates alongside Antonio Brown as the principal wideout options. Heyward-Bey appeared to only receive a handful of snaps despite his play-making ability, a somewhat fitting end to a disappointing 2016 campaign. The former first-round pick tallied the second-lowest reception (six) and yardage (114) totals of his career while appearing in a career-low 10 games. Although he has two seasons remaining on his current contract at a modest yearly cap hit of approximately $1.3 million, Heyward-Bey's status for next season likely hinges on the continued development of Rogers, Hamilton, Coates and DeMarcus Ayers, as well as the potential return of Martavis Bryant (suspension).
