Shazier was listed as a full practice participant Friday, but the questionable designation suggests that his Week 12 status must still be verified in advance of Sunday's 4:25 ET kickoff. The linebacker remains on the IDP radar, having notched 47 tackles, three sacks and two forced fumbles in six games to date.
Brown followed his 284 yard outing in Week 9 with another stellar performance, and how has 79 receptions for 1,141 yards and five touchdowns on the season. At this pace, he would finish with a career-high 1,826 yards. Fantasy owners huge lineup hole to fill with the Steelers on a bye in Week 11.
The fumble recovery was the first of his career, and came in Pittsburgh territory just two plays after Ben Roethlisberger had been intercepted by David Amerson. Jones will face the Browns, who are minus four in turnovers, and have lost four straight and six of their last seven games, in Week 10.
Tackle Marcus Gilbert and safety Mike Mitchell had tweaks made to their contracts that won't affect their income for the 2015 season. However, the money they were slated to make from their salaries and roster bonuses are being applied as signing bonuses to free up cap space for the upcoming league year.
The restructured signing bonuses will be prorated and affect their cap number for future seasons.
The restructured deals were likely done to help free up money to re-sign linebacker Jason Worilds, linebacker Arthur Moats and cornerback Brice McCain.
Gordon and Kettani have both previously spent time with the Patriots, while Fort was on the practice squads of the Seahawks and Bengals in 2014. Pataiali’l was on both the Ravens and Browns practice squads last season.
With his team-leading fourth sack of the season. Dupree tied LaMarr Woodley for the third-most sacks by a Steelers rookie since sacks became an official statistic in 1982. Dupree currently trails only Kendrell Bell (9.0) 2001 and Keith Gary (7.5) 1983. He'll look to add to that total in Week 9 against the Raiders, who have allowed just one sack in their last two games.
Harrison didn't practice all week, so this news doesn't come as much of a surprise. The 37-year-old will miss his first game of the season, but with the Steelers slated for a bye next week, Harrison will have plenty of time to recuperate for the next matchup against the Seahawks in Week 12.
Murphy was brought up in the likely event that Ben Roethlisberger is unable to return from his knee injury to play Sunday against the Chiefs, with Landry Jones getting the start after Michael Vick was ruled out with a hamstring injury. Murphy, who isn't likely to see the field if Jones avoids an injury, played quarterback at Florida and Boston College during his collegiate years, but after going undrafted he signed as a free agent with the Steelers, who were trying to develop him into a wide receiver.
Used primarily as a blocker and on special teams, the catch was the first for Spaeth, and only his second target of the season. Even if Heath Miller were to miss significant playing time, Spaeth is not worth a spot on fantasy rosters.
Allen hasn't been able to play since Week 1, so his questionable status is certainly an improvement over previous weeks. That being said, Allen will likely fill-in as a third or fourth corner back if he plays, so his fantasy value will likely be limited in IDP leagues until he can regain a starting role.
Pittsburgh was in need of a backup quarterback after Gradkowski dislocated a finger in his left hand, requiring surgery.
Vick played in 10 games for the Jets last season. He passed for 604 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions.
With four-and-a-half sacks, the second-year defensive end leads the team, and is on pace for seven sacks after recording just one in his rookie season. He'll look to add to is total after a Week 11 bye when Pittsburgh faces Seattle, which has yielded 31 sacks this season.
The Steelers announced it's a three-year deal.
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).
Fantasy owners had high expectations for Williams against the league's worst run defense, but he was a non-factor in the offense until late in the game. In fact, heading in to the fourth quarter, Williams had rushed eight times for just one yard. It may not get any easier for Williams, as the Steelers head to Seattle in Week 12 after their bye.
Beachum fell to the ground during a running play in the second quarter, and was helped off the field.
With 73 tackles on the season, Timmons is on pace 117 on the season. He is also on pace to record four sacks, which would be his best season since 2012. On a day when the Steelers lost their quarterback in the first four minutes and the running game struggled to get anything going, Timmons and the entire Pittsburgh defense came up big, recording 6 sacks and 3 turnovers.
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.
While Bell will miss the rest of this season with MCL/PCL injuries in his right knee, head coach Mike Tomlin said Bell's ACL remains intact, so he is not facing a recovery timetable that would cost him more games next year. It's not clear when Bell will be 100 percent again, but a more definitive timeline for his recovery will be known after the Steelers' medical staff decides whether or not he needs surgery to repair the damage in his knee.
With Vick inactive Sunday, NFL.com indicates that Ben Roethlisberger -- who is dealing with a foot issue -- is in line to back up Landry Jones on Sunday.
Blake now leads Pittsburgh with 48 solo tackles, and his 58 total tackles is second only to Lawrence Timmons (63) on the team. Blake also had a forced a fumble, the second of his career, and will look to add to that total in Week 10 against Cleveland, which has a league worst 12 fumbles this season.
Toussaint will replace fellow running back Isaiah Pead on the team's roster and is now in line to work behind DeAngelo Williams and Jordan Todman in the Steelers' backfield.
DHB has now gone three straight games without a reception and just three targets. Even with Ben Roethlisberger (knee) back under center, Heyward-Bey is not worth a spot on fantasy rosters.
Boykin was a fourth-round pick in 2012 and has seven interceptions in his Eagles career.
Bush has not played in 2014 and averaged 3.1 yards per carry in 2013. His best season occurred in 2011 when he rushed for 977 yards and scored seven touchdowns for the Raiders.
The eight tackles were the most in a game for Heyward this season, and his best effort since a 10-tackle game in Week 14 of the 2013 season. Although he, and the rest of the defense, failed to add to their sack total, they did force five fumbles, recovering three, and have one interception. They rank seventh in the league both in takeaways (15) and turnover differential (4).
Making his first career start, Golden had a solid game. Still, with no sacks or interceptions, and just one fumble recovery in his career, Golden offers little fantasy value.
Taylor, Polamalu and Palmer were all listed as questionable to play Sunday but none of the three will be available for the regular-season finale. The three players listed as probable to play in Week 17 are all active, including tackle Kelvin Beachum (back), tight end Matt Spaeth (elbow) and linebacker Vince Williams (ankle).
Pittsburgh is a 3 1/2-point favorite at home against Cincinnati.
Heading in to Pittsburgh's Week 11 bye, Miller is averaging just three receptions for 35 yards per game, and has only scored one touchdown. Fantasy owners should be looking at other tight end options in the final weeks of the season.
Warren joined the Steelers as an undrafted free agent in 2005 and has snapped in 149 regular-season games and 10 postseason games for the team. He appeared in every game for the Steelers in 2014.
Financial terms were not disclosed.
The Steelers are 3-point favorites.
The sack was the first of the season for Spence, and one of five on the night for the Steelers. As a unit, Pittsburgh is averaging three-and-a-half sacks per game, compared to just two per game in 2014.
The 11 tackles are a single-game record for Allen, who also forced the fourth fumble of his 12-year career. With 49 total tackles including a sack and one interception, the unrestricted free agent is having a solid season.
The journeyman played in six games for Washington last season.
Fantasy owners were not expecting Roethlisberger to play, but an ankle injury to Landry Jones forced Big Ben in to action. If he was feeling any ill effects from the injury that knocked him out of the game in Week 9 it didn't show, as he moved well, was sacked just once, and finished with his best effort of the season. At 6-4, the Steelers can now rest Roethlisberger as they head in to their bye week.
One week after missing his first field goal attempt of the season, Boswell missed his first extra point attempt. However, he still had a solid game and, with the offense racking up 68 points in their last two games, he should get plenty of scoring opportunities, especially since it appears that Ben Roethlisberger (foot) won't miss any time after the bye week.
But he did pay a visit to the end zone in the third quarter. His 1-yard blast began a second-half comeback that fell short.
Thomas worked with Polamalu last season and remains in touch with the safety in order to pick his brain for advice. Thomas' first two seasons have been limited due to injury and ineffectiveness, as he registered just five tackles in 11 games, mostly on special teams.
"I'm definitely sorry that Troy's gone, and I can't replace him,'' Thomas said. ''He's a Hall of Famer. I'm not worried about the job right now. I'm just out here trying to compete and trying to get involved with my team and just working hard."
Those on the offensive side of the ball are wide receivers Emory Blake, Austin Franklin and Justin Veltung, linemen Sean Hooey, Mitchell Van Dyk, Travis Bond and Brandon Washington, quarterback Garrett Gilbert and tight end Brad Smelley.
Defenders now gone are linemen Kourtnei Brown, Matt Conrath and Deantre Harlan, defensive backs Christian Bryant, Darren Woodard, Avery Cunningham and Greg Reid and linebackers Aaron Hill, Etienne Sabino, Phillip Seward and Lawrence Wilson.
The Rams also placed wideout Stedman Bailey on the reserved/suspended list.
Among those waived are: wide receivers Kadron Boone and B.J. Cunningham; tight ends Emil Igwenagu and Blake Annen; offensive lineman Michael Bamiro, Karim Barton and Donald Hawkins; linebacker Jake Knott; defensive backs Daytawion Lowe and Davon Morgan; defensive linemen Joe Kruger, Frances Mays and Alejandro Villanueva; and kicker Carey Spear.
The team still has to make one more cut before Tuesday.
Zumwalt registered three solo tackles during the first week of the preseason. He was able to play the final two weeks of the preseason.
Polamalu has missed the previous two games and four of the last seven due to numerous injuries. His teammates scoffed at the idea that the Steelers are better off without the services of Polamalu, after he was a surprise inactive in Week 17. However, Will Allen could cut into Polamalu's playing time on Saturday, per the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
Pittsburgh is a 3-point home favorite against Baltimore.
Both Taylor and Ventrone had been ruled out on the team's final injury report of the week, so their absence is not a surprise. All nine players listed as probable to play are active for Sunday's game.
Rogers, who is an undrafted rookie out of Louisville, was taking snaps with the second team offense on top of returning punts and kicks before suffering a right foot sprain during Monday's practice.
Bryant got off to a rough start with just one reception for five yards with Landry Jones (ankle) at quarterback, but he quickly became a factor in the offense under Ben Roethlisberger (foot). Bryant had receptions of 44 yards and 64 yards on Pittsburgh's next two possessions, and his 32-yard touchdown catch in the final minute of the first half gave the Steelers a commanding 21-3 lead. Bryant is a must-start for the remainder of the season once the Steelers return from their Week 11 bye.
