Position Listing
Ryan Shazier
News
Steelers rookie linebacker Ryan Shazier, who's missed four straight games with a sprained knee, is expected to suit up Week 8 against the Colts, reports ESPN.com.
Injury
Knee - Missed Week 7 vs. Houston
Antonio Brown
News
Steelers wideout Antonio Brown did his usual damage as a receiver Monday against the Texans, and he also threw his first career touchdown pass on a trick play. Late in the first half, Brown took a toss, reversed field and fired a 3-yard strike to Lance Moore in the end zone.

Brown also had a touchdown grab called back when it was ruled his toe came down out of bounds.

Brown drew a team-high 13 targets, catching nine balls for 90 yards. It was his 23rd straight game with at least five catches and 50 receiving yards. He'll face the Colts in Week 8.

Jarvis Jones
News
The Steelers put outside linebacker Jarvis Jones on Injured Reserve/Designated to Return following wrist surgery, reports NFL Network. Jones will be eligible to return Week 13 against the Saints.
Injury
Wrist - IR. Designated for return
Jordan Sullen
News
The Bears have signed guard Conor Boffeli and receiver Rashad Ross to the practice squad, according to WSCR 670.

In order to make room on the practice squad, the team parted ways with cornerback Jordan Sullen . Ross had been with the Bears this season, but was waived a few days ago. The club decided to bring him back as a member of the practice squad. 

Cam Thomas
News
The Steelers signed Cam Thomas to play defensive end in their 3-4 scheme, reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Thomas primarily played nose tackle for the Chargers. He could still see snaps at the nose in Pittsburgh, the report said.
Marcus Gilbert
News
Steelers right tackle Marcus Gilbert has a concussion and won't return to Monday's game against the Texans. Mike Adams will continue to fill in.
Markus Wheaton
News
Wide receiver Markus Wheaton didn't impress through the first six weeks of the season, so the Steelers saw fit to give someone else a chance Week 7 against Houston. Active for the first time this season, Martavis Bryant had as productive a day as any pass catcher not named Antonio Brown or Le'Veon Bell, hauling in two passes for 40 yards, including a 35-yarder in the back of the end zone for a touchdown. His five targets were third-most on the team, and no one after him had more than two.

That includes Wheaton, who was among those with two targets, going without a catch. He actually played 48 percent of the Steelers' snaps compared to Bryant's 34 percent, which makes his lack of production even more discouraging. Considering he's been up around 80 percent most of the year, he may be in danger of being overtaken.

Of course, Wheaton probably wouldn't disappear completely, and because Antonio Brown is still the go-to guy in the Steelers passing game, Bryant probably wouldn't have the opportunity for big numbers in his place. But in leagues deep enough that Wheaton is relevant, Bryant is now, too.

James Harrison
News
Recently returned Steelers linebacker James Harrison has a message for those who claim that NFL offenses have passed defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau by: "Bull."

The Steelers have struggled defensively all season and some believe the current unit is soft. Harrison, however, strongly disagrees.

"A lot of people are saying he's old," Harrison told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "That's bull. The defense works. Players have to play the defense. Period. It's on the players.

"Let's be plain and honest: let's cut out all the bull -- it's about you dominating your man, period. That's all there is to it."

The Steelers are yielding 23.2 points per game, which ranks 19th in the NFL. But they have given up 26 points or more in four of their six games.

Matt Spaeth
News
Steelers linebacker Sean Spence (knee), tight end Matt Spaeth (hamstring) and long snapper Greg Warren (knee) are all on pace to play the season opener. All three players practiced and were listed as probable for Week 1 against the Browns.
Cortez Allen
News
Steelers cornerback Cortez Allen, who was burned several times in the Week 6 loss to Cleveland, has apparently lost his starting job to Brice McCain, according to ESPN.com. Defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau indicated as much in his Thursday press conference.

Allen was beaten twice for long gains by Browns tight end Jordan Cameron, including one on a 51-yarder that resulted in a touchdown.

Bruce Gradkowski
News
The Steelers have signed quarterback Bruce Gradkowski to a three-year deal. The Pittsburgh native, who once led the Raiders to an improbable win at Heinz Field, will back up Big Ben.
Terence Garvin
News
Linebacker Terence Garvin, who made his first start in Week 16, won't make his second on Sunday. He is the lone Steelers player ruled out for the game against the Browns. Fellow linebacker Jason Worilds (abdomen) is questionable while the other injured are probable.

They are guard David DeCastro (back), linebacker Jarvis Jones (illness), defensive end Brett Keisel (foot) and wide receiver Markus Wheaton (foot). All were full participants in Friday practice.

Stephon Tuitt
News
The Steelers and rookie second-round pick defensive tackle Stephon Tuitt have agreed to a four-year deal, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported. The 6-foot-5, 303-pound Tuitt will compete for playing time along the D-line in camp this summer. 
David DeCastro
News
Linebacker Terence Garvin, who made his first start in Week 16, won't make his second on Sunday. He is the lone Steelers player ruled out for the game against the Browns. Fellow linebacker Jason Worilds (abdomen) is questionable while the other injured are probable.

They are guard David DeCastro (back), linebacker Jarvis Jones (illness), defensive end Brett Keisel (foot) and wide receiver Markus Wheaton (foot). All were full participants in Friday practice.

Mike Mitchell
News
All the Steelers who were probable on the injury report are active for Monday's game against Houston. The list includes defensive end Cameron Heyward (ankle), running back Will Johnson (illness), defensive end Brett Keisel (knee) and safety Mike Mitchell (knee).
Howard Jones
News
The Steelers signed receivers C.J. Goodwin and Derek Moye, offensive lineman Alejandro Villanueva, defensive backs Shaquille Richardson and Ross Ventrone, defensive linemen Josh Mauro and Nick Williams, running back Josh Harris, tight end Rob Blanchflower and linebacker Howard Jones to their practice squad.
Mike Adams
News
The Colts are in fine shape as they prepare for their Week 7 game against visiting Cincinnati. Only defensive back Darius Butler has been ruled out. The lone questionable is defensive tackle Arthur Jones. Both are dealing with ankle problems.

The probables are safety Mike Adams (ankle), tackle Gosder Cherilus (knee) and offensive linemen Jack Mewhort (ankle) and Hugh Thornton (back).

Arthur Moats
News
The Steelers DST enjoyed itself Sunday night in Carolina, producing three sacks, two turnovers and a touchdown in a 37-19 win.

The biggest play came early in the fourth quarter when the Panthers' Philly Brown fumbled on a punt return and safety Robert Golden recovered in the end zone. It was one of two fumble recoveries for Pittsburgh, which got a sack-fumble from outside linebacker Jarvis Jones.

Linebacker Arthur Moats and nose tackle Steve McLendon also sacked Cam Newton. Pittsburgh allowed just 42 rushing yards in what was easily its top defensive performance this year.

The Steelers DST has a chance to dominate again Week 4 against the lowly Buccaneers.

Ramon Foster
News
As expected, the Steelers have ruled out cornerback Ike Taylor (forearm) and linebacker Ryan Shazier (knee) for their Sunday game in Jacksonville.

The other players on their injury report submitted Friday are probable. They are wide receivers Martavis Bryant (illness) and Markus Wheaton (groin), linebacker James Harrison (illness), guard Ramon Foster (ankle) and tackle Marcus Gilbert (ankle).

Brad Wing
News
Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said recently-signed punter Brad Wing has matured.

“It's a no-lose situation for us,” Colbert told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “He got married recently and has a child, and players mature as the years go. If we weren't comfortable with (his) character, we don't sign him.”

Incumbent punter Mat McBriar is a free agent.

Kelvin Beachum
News
Steelers guard Kelvin Beachum is ready to roll Sunday at Green Bay. He has been given the green light after being listed as probable.
Ike Taylor
News
The Steelers declared cornerback Ike Taylor (forearm), linebacker Ryan Shazier (knee), safety Shamarko Thomas (hamstring), nose tackle Steve McLendon (shoulder), quarterback Landry Jones, guard Christopher Hubbard and wideout Justin Brown inactive for Monday's game against the Texans.
Injury
Forearm - Missed Week 7 vs. Houston
B.W. Webb
News
The Steelers declared running back Dri Archer (ankle), wideout Martavis Bryant (shoulder), quarterback Landry Jones, nose tackle Dan McCullers, offensive lineman Wesley Johnson, guard Ramon Foster (ankle) and cornerback B.W. Webb inactive for Sunday night's game in Carolina.
Ross Ventrone
News
Safety Ross Ventrone has been promoted by the Steelers from their practice squad to their live roster. To make room, the team has waived center Wesley Johnson.

Ventrone is in his second season with Pittsburgh, but has yet to play a down.

Adam Gettis
News
The Redskins released guard Adam Gettis and cornerback Bryan Shepherd.
Lawrence Timmons
News
Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons made significant contributions to the win Sunday at Green Bay. He tied for the team lead with 10 tackles, added a sack and TFL, and twice put a lick on Packers quarterback Matt Flynn.
Cody Wallace
News
The Steelers will go into Week 2 with all of their stud offensive players. 

A number of important players entered the week listed as probable on the injury report. Nearly all of them are active Week 2 against the Steelers. Le'Veon Bell, Antonio Brown, Heath Miller, Ben Roethlisberger, Cody Wallace and Markus Wheaton were all cleared to play. While they were all on the injury report, only Wallace was dealing with an injury. The rest missed practice for non-injury reasons. 

On defense, the Steelers will have Brett Keisel, Steve McLendon, Troy Polamalu, Ike Taylor, Shamarko Thomas and Vince Williams. Wallace was dealing with an ankle issue, but the rest were listed for non-injury reasons. 

Shaun Suisham
News
Steelers kicker Shaun Suisham improved to 14 of 15 on field goals by drilling three in Monday's win over Houston. Suisham connected from 44, 30 and 40 yards and added three PATs for a 12-point night.

He'll face the Colts in Week 8.

Le'Veon Bell
News
Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell averaged 4.7 receptions per game through his first six games, but because he was involved in the passing game only intermittently as a rookie, you had reason to wonder if you could rely on him for that long-term.

But then he went and caught eight passes for 88 yards and a touchdown against the Texans in Week 7, putting him second among all running backs with 36 receptions, behind only Matt Forte (who remains in a class of his own). In PPR leagues, he's also third among running backs, behind Forte and DeMarco Murray, in Fantasy points to date.

Even better, his touchdown came from the 2-yard line -- a situation where the Steelers may have gone to LeGarrette Blount earlier in the season. Only one of Blount's seven carries even came in Texans' territory in this one.

Bell's touchdown total seven weeks into the season may be disappointing, but in terms of his receiving ability and role on offense, the verdict is in. If we were re-drafting today, he might be one of the first five running backs off the board.

Antwon Blake
News
The Steelers haven't said how long starting cornerback Ike Taylor will be out due to his broken forearm, but the injury typically requires six to eight weeks to heal, reports the Pittsburgh Tribune Review. The paper expects William Gay and Antwon Blake to fill in for Taylor.
Nick Williams
News
The Steelers signed receivers C.J. Goodwin and Derek Moye, offensive lineman Alejandro Villanueva, defensive backs Shaquille Richardson and Ross Ventrone, defensive linemen Josh Mauro and Nick Williams, running back Josh Harris, tight end Rob Blanchflower and linebacker Howard Jones to their practice squad.
Darrius Heyward-Bey
News
Cornerback Ike Taylor and linebacker Ryan Shazier are out, but the Steelers are otherwise in good shape for their Sunday clash against visiting Tampa Bay. Only one other player on their Friday injury report has been designated any worse than probable. That is guard Ramon Foster (ankle), who is questionable.

The probables are running back Dri Archer (ankle) and wideout Darrius Heyward-Bey (ankle). Standouts such as quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, tight end Heath Miller, safety Troy Polamalu and defensive end Brett Keisel are all probable with non-injury related issues.

Brice McCain
News
Steelers cornerback Cortez Allen, who was burned several times in the Week 6 loss to Cleveland, has apparently lost his starting job to Brice McCain, according to ESPN.com. Defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau indicated as much in his Thursday press conference.

Allen was beaten twice for long gains by Browns tight end Jordan Cameron, including one on a 51-yarder that resulted in a touchdown.

Jason Worilds
News
Steelers linebacker Jason Worilds isn't complaining about being used in pass coverage - just stating what he sees as the truth. And he's not thrilled about losing opportunities to perform his specialty - rushing the quarterback.

"I would think they understand that," Worilds told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "I would hope they know that I rush the passer, so if they put me out of position, they do it knowing that they're taking me out of position to make plays.

"Some of the things that we're doing, some of the positions that they're playing [us] is kind of to help the defense, more so than from, I guess, a schematic standpoint with me individually rushing. ... It if helps the defense ... I'm going to do that for my team."

The Steelers have struggled defensively, however. They rank fourth-last in the AFC with 139 points allowed. They rank 23rd in the league with just nine sacks. Worilds has two sacks this season after recording eight in 2013.

Lance Moore
News
Steelers No. 3 receiver Lance Moore caught a touchdown pass for the second straight game Monday, hauling in a 3-yard bullet from fellow wideout Antonio Brown on a trick play. Moore caught both his targets for 12 yards, and his two catches represented a season high.

He'll play the Colts in Week 8.

Rob Blanchflower
News
The Steelers signed receivers C.J. Goodwin and Derek Moye, offensive lineman Alejandro Villanueva, defensive backs Shaquille Richardson and Ross Ventrone, defensive linemen Josh Mauro and Nick Williams, running back Josh Harris, tight end Rob Blanchflower and linebacker Howard Jones to their practice squad.
Cameron Heyward
News
All the Steelers who were probable on the injury report are active for Monday's game against Houston. The list includes defensive end Cameron Heyward (ankle), running back Will Johnson (illness), defensive end Brett Keisel (knee) and safety Mike Mitchell (knee).
Robert Golden
News
The Steelers DST enjoyed itself Sunday night in Carolina, producing three sacks, two turnovers and a touchdown in a 37-19 win.

On defense, the Steelers will have Brett Keisel, Steve McLendon, Troy Polamalu, Ike Taylor, Shamarko Thomas and Vince Williams. Wallace was dealing with an ankle issue, but the rest were listed for non-injury reasons. 

Michael Palmer
News
Steelers tight end Michael Palmer finally recorded his first catch of the season Week 5 at Jacksonville, and he made it count in a 17-9 win. Palmer's lone reception Sunday was a 1-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter, which gave Pittsburgh a 10-3 lead.

The touchdown catch was the fourth of Palmer's career and first since 2012 with the Falcons. The Steelers are back in action Week 6 at Cleveland.

Heath Miller
News
The Steelers got a variety of offensive contributions in their 30-23 win over the Texans. Among them, running back LeGarrette Blount ran seven times for 9 yards and caught an 8-yard pass. Running back Dri Archer carried twice for 7 yards.

Tight end Heath Miller secured his only target for 13 yards, while wideout Markus Wheaton was targeted twice without a catch. They'll all play the Colts in Week 8.

Josh Harris
News
The Steelers announced their final round of cuts to trim the roster to 53 players Saturday, as they parted ways with 22 players.

The Steelers released defensive backs Isaiah Green, Dayonne Nunley, Shaquille Richardson and Ross Ventrone, linebackers Chris Carter, Howard Jones and Dan Molls, and defensive linemen Ethan Hemer, Josh Mauro, Roy Philon and Nick Williams on the defensive side of the ball. On offense, the team cut tight ends Rob Blanchflower, Bryce Davis and David Paulson, running backs Josh Harris and Stephen Houston, wide receivers Derek Moye and Lanear Sampson, offensive linemen Graham Pocic, Will Simmons and Guy Whimper, and quarter Brendon Kay.

Sean Spence
News
Steelers linebackers coach Keith Butler told linebacker Sean Spence that Spence will start Sunday against the Bucs in place of the injured Ryan Shazier, according to ESPN.

"The tunnel was dark for me for a long time, but I stayed positive and Steelers Nation stayed behind me," said Spence, who shredded his left knee in a 2012 preseason game and dislocated his knee cap while also sustaining nerve damage. "I finally get to get some good quality reps on defense."

Will Allen
News
The following players will not dress for the Steelers against the Bills Saturday night: Will Allen, Devin Smith, Shaquille Richardson, Will Johnson, Jordan Zumwalt, Greg Warren, Matt Spaeth and Jarvis Jones.
Troy Polamalu
News
The Steelers unveiled their injury report for Week 6 at Cleveland, and it's pretty cut and dry. Out of seven players listed on the report, four of them have been ruled probable for Sunday. The other three were ruled out for the game.

Safety Shamarko Thomas (hamstring), cornerback Ike Taylor (forearm) and linebacker Ryan Shazier (knee) were labeled out for Sunday.

Safeties Troy Polamalu and Mike Mitchell, tight end Heath Miller and Brett Keisel were all deemed probable despite receiving a rest day on Wednesday. Polamalu was the only player out of the group to miss back-to-back days of practice before returning for Friday's session.

Ben Roethlisberger
News
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw multiple touchdown passes for the first since Week 4, completing 23 of 33 throws for 265 yards and two scores Monday against the Texans. Roethlisberger did not toss an interception but lost a fumble while getting sacked.

It was a nice bounceback for Roethlisberger, who had accounted for two touchdowns and two turnovers in Weeks 5-6.

Roethlisberger found rookie Martavis Bryant for a 35-yard touchdown and running back Le'Veon Bell for a 2-yard score in a 24-point onslaught right before halftime. He had a touchdown pass called back when it was ruled Antonio Brown did not get both feet down.

Dan McCullers
News
As expected, linebacker Ryan Shazier (knee), cornerback Ike Taylor (forearm) and strong safety Shamarko Thomas (hamstring) are all on the injured list released Sunday by the Steelers for their clash in Cleveland.

Their healthy scratches are quarterback Landry Jones, wideout Martavis Bryant, nose tackle Daniel McCullers and tackle Chris Hubbard.

Josh Mauro
News
The Steelers signed receivers C.J. Goodwin and Derek Moye, offensive lineman Alejandro Villanueva, defensive backs Shaquille Richardson and Ross Ventrone, defensive linemen Josh Mauro and Nick Williams, running back Josh Harris, tight end Rob Blanchflower and linebacker Howard Jones to their practice squad.
Martavis Bryant
News
Getting his first NFL action Monday, Steelers rookie wideout Martavis Bryant made his presence felt in the second quarter. He ran past Texans rookie corner Andre Hal and hauled in a 35-yard touchdown, dragging his left toe for the score.

Bryant caught another 5-yard pass later, giving him two catches on five targets for 40 yards. He likely earned more playing time Week 8 against the Colts.
