He was targeted five times and finished with three catches for 59 yards, averaging 19.7 yards per grab.

Brown has compiled 173 receiving yards and a touchdown through three preseason games.

No Updates

Vince Williams
News

Defensive lineman Cameron Heyward (knee), linebacker Vince Williams (concussion) and defensive back Ike Taylor (concussion) are all active for Sunday's game. 
Michael Palmer
News
The Steelers issued a list of four players who will not be in uniform for the team's first preseason game Saturday against the Giants. The following players will sit out the opener:  Ryan Shazier, Michael Palmer, Darrius Heyward-Bey and Steve McLendon.
Markus Wheaton
News
Steelers wide receiver Markus Wheaton had a bad drop and endured some communication issues with Ben Roethlisberger Thursday night against the Eagles in preseason action, per the NFL Network. Wheaton finished the first half without a grab and caught passes for 10 and 14 yards in the third quarter. He caught half of his four targets for 24 yards.

"It looked bad. We'll go watch the film, it could be 'this here is wrong, that is wrong,' you fix it and you get rolling," Wheaton said, per the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Heath Miller
News
Steelers tight end Heath Miller looked like his old self during Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles in Philadelphia.

Miller played deep into the third quarter with the first-team offense. He came down with a 27-yard touchdown grab late in the third quarter. He finished five catches for 53 yards and a touchdown, averaging 10.6 yards per grab.

Matt Spaeth
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.
LeGarrette Blount
News
There is no chance the Steelers will suspend running backs Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount for their arrests last week on charges of marijuana possession, reports Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The team will let the legal process play out, then wait for the NFL to impose discipline -- a process that could take a year.

"So the idea that either the Steelers will act on their own or that the wheels of NFL justice will move so quickly Bell and Blount could lose a game to suspension anytime soon is folly," Bouchette wrote.

The Steelers won't do anything to hurt their chances of winning Week 1, Bouchette continued. In addition, he asserted the collective bargaining agreement prohibits teams from imposing suspensions in these kinds of cases.

Bell also was charged with DUI in the incident a week ago.

Brett Keisel
News
The deal signed by Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel is for two years, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Caplan, who is further reporting it's for $3 million with $500,000 guaranteed.

Keisel started 12 games last year and aided on 29 tackles with four sacks.

Cortez Allen
News
Steelers cornerback Cortez Allen would like to become a shadow corner and follow around the opposing team's best receiver, reports the official team website. He would be replacing Ike Taylor in that role if it happens in 2014. 

"Of course," Allen said. "I've always liked to challenge myself. I've always wanted that challenge just to see how I match up. And it's always fun to go against talent like that. Ike's done it before me. Hopefully, one day I'll be in that position to be the level of player that he is. It's a day-by-day process. I'm just trying to learn as much as I can from him and the guys around me. Wherever I am in the defense, wherever they see fit, what's best for the team, then that’s where I'll be. I've never been a guy who said, 'I want to play on this side or that side.' We’re both capable of playing either side. And we're both capable of playing anybody we face. It's always us. It's never them."

William Gay
News
Nickel cornerback William Gay is "underrated and underappreciated but not by the Steelers," according to the team's website. The site expects Gay, who's owed $1.5 million in 2014, to stick on the roster because "he is precisely the kind of player a team needs to contend."

Gay, 29, had 63 tackles, nine passes defensed, two forced fumbles, an interception return for a touchdown and a sack last season.

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.

News
Steelers linebacker Sean Spence is expected to sit out the team's final preseason game while recovering from a sprained knee ligament, ESPN.com reports.

Spence hopes to be ready for the start of the regular season Sept. 7.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for Week 1 vs. Cleveland

Landry Jones
News
Quarterback Landry Jones has shown very little to justify the Steelers taking him in the fourth-round last year, reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, which expects Jones to be a third-stringer again in 2014. If the Steelers could redo that draft pick, the paper said, "they'd draft a cornerback or another safety or a tight end, anything but a quarterback in that fourth round."

Ben Roethlisberger did not miss a snap last season and veteran backup Bruce Gradkowski is signed through 2015.

Christopher Hubbard
News
Seven Steelers who finished the season on the practice squad have been signed by the team to futures contracts.

He's expected to receive a misdemeanor battery charge for allegedly hitting a club patron as part of a larger brawl. 
Shamarko Thomas
News
Troy Polamalu has been a staple in the Steelers secondary since being taken with a first-round pick in the 2003 draft. But reporter Ron Cook with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette says his "best guess" is that this will be Polamalu's last season

Cook brought up the issue when writing about safety Shamarko Thomas, one of many second-year players expected to contribute for the Steelers. Thomas figures to be the top backup safety in 2014. 

Polamalu is under contract through the 2016 season. 

Ramon Foster
News
The Steelers are in great shape offensively heading into their clash in Cleveland on Sunday. All players on their Friday injury report on that side of the ball are probable.

Included are tight end Heath Miller (not injury related), guards Fernando Velasco (knee), Kelvin Beachum (hip) and Ramon Foster (ankle) and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (foot).

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.

Justin Brown
News
Steelers receiver Justin Brown has quietly been making a name for himself through the spring. This week he started taking first-team reps, working in the slot in place of Lance Moore, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported. While rookie Martavis Bryant got a little bit of work with the starters before getting pulled, Brown stayed in and spent a lot of time catching passes from Ben Roethlisberger. 

Brown's height (6-foot-3) and experience in the slot at Penn State (before he went to Oklahoma and played on the outside) are giving him an advantage in the race to land prominent playing time this season. 

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
Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor told The Jim Rome Show that he was "pissed off" about taking a pay cut to stay with the team this season. He gave back $4.25 million in salary. 

"I'm pissed off about it, still am pissed off about it and I'm going to be pissed off until the end of the season about it," Taylor said. "Did it hurt me? Hell yeah. Does it still hurt? Yeah, it hurts, but hopefully I can go in and bounce back this year, do what I need to do on the field and we will see what happens after."

Taylor added that he considered leaving the Steelers when asked to take a pay cut but noticed that other players who didn't take pay cuts struggled after getting released. 

"I didn't want to leave Pittsburgh, point blank, period," Taylor said. "I've got a lot of relationships -- I have a lot of friends, I gained a lot of business relationships in Pittsburgh. Just hearing from other guys coming from other teams and being on the team with Pittsburgh, they say it's like no other; it's like day and night, so I'll listen."

B.W. Webb
News
The Steelers have claimed cornerback B.W. Webb .
