Position Listing
Ryan Harris
News
The Broncos have agreed to terms on a contract with offensive tackle Ryan Harris, according to a report from ESPN. 

This move is a necessity now that left tackle Ryan Clady is likely lost for the season due to a torn ACL that he sustained in practice on Wednesday.

This move brings Harris back to the organization he started his NFL career with as he played with the Broncos, which drafted him in the third round, from 2007-2010. 

Harris was with the Chiefs a year ago and started 15 of the 16 games he appeared in. 

Ryan Shazier
News
Shazier (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals, but should be healthy enough to play, The Observer-Reporter reports.

Shazier sustained a knee injury during Monday night's win over the Redskins, and although he didn't practice Wednesday, he was able to log a limited session Thursday. That progress apparently should continue and culminate in an active status Sunday, which would obviously be a positive development for the Steelers' defense. Despite exiting Pittsburgh's Week 1 contest early, Shazier logged six tackles (five solo), one interception and two passes defensed while starting alongside Lawrence Timmons at inside linebacker.

Antonio Brown
News
Brown agreed Tuesday to restructure his contract, increasing his 2016 pay from $6.25 million to $10.25 million, NFL.com reports.

The Steelers presumably converted $4 million of Brown's 2017 base salary into a signing bonus that will be paid either immediately or throughout the 2016 season. With 2017 standing as the final year of Brown's deal, Tuesday's move earned the Steelers some goodwill as they prepare to negotiate a massive extension with Brown next offseason. The 28-year-old is a mover than viable candidate to lead the NFL in receptions for a third straight year, especially with teammates Le'Veon Bell (suspension) and Ladarius Green (ankle) ruled out for the beginning of the season.

Jarvis Jones
News
Jones is favored to split reps with Bud Dupree (undisclosed) as starting outside linebacker this season, Mark Kaboly of TribLive.com reports.

Jones recored 29 tackles, two sacks, one interception, and one forced fumble last season and will now look to see an expanded role as a starter this year. The Steelers have several options at outside linebacker, including Jones, Dupree, James Harrison, and Arthur Moats. Its the young guns, Jones and Dupree, who defensive coordinator Keith Butler seems to be high on as preseason gets underway. Jones said about the rotation, "Get in the best shape you can because, me and Bud, it is our year, and they are looking for us to do big things. We aren't coming off the field unless we are tired."

Anthony Chickillo
News
Chickillo recorded two combined tackles during the Steelers' 38-16 blowout win over the Redskins on Monday.

With his leg injury no longer an issue, Chickillo will look to expand his role as depth linebacker for the Steelers. The second year pro played roughly 25 percent of defensive snaps at linebacker, but could be in line for an increased role as the season develops.

Marcus Gilbert
News
The Steelers created $6.2 million in cap space by restructuring two contracts, according to a report from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

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. 

Ross Cockrell
News
Cockrell had one tackle (solo) against Denver on Sunday.

Cockrell totaled 44 tackles (34 solo) in 2015. He also had two interceptions, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. Used sparingly, and mostly on special teams for Buffalo last season, Cockrell seems to have found his place in the Pittsburgh defensive backfield, playing nearly 62 percent of the snaps this season. Cockrell will likely return next season as he is an exclusive restricted free agent, meaning he cannot negotiate with other teams and must accept an offer from the Steelers at the three-year veteran minimum salary or leave the NFL. With seven other free agent defensive backs on the team, Cockrell's role could continue to increase, along with his value in IDP leagues.

Ricardo Mathews
News
Mathews played 16 snaps during Monday's season opener at Washington.

Mathews' neck injury appears to be a thing of the past. While the 29-year-old is unlikely to generate high-volume stats, his presence as a run-stopper will allow him to stay on the field during non-passing downs.

L.J. Fort
News
The Patriots announced they have signed four players Tuesday: linebackers L.J. Fort and Cameron Gordon, fullback Eric Kettani and defensive lineman A.J. Pataiali’l .

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. 

Brandon Johnson
Injury
Markus Wheaton
News
Wheaton (shoulder) is slated to play Sunday against the Eagles.

A full practice participant all week, Wheaton doesn't have any designation on the final injury report. He's thus slated to make his 2016 regular-season debut, though it's possible Sammie Coates will cut into Wheaton's work as the likely No. 2 wide receiver.

Bud Dupree
News
Dupree (abdomen) has the chance to return to the playing field this season, Ed Bouchette of The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Dupree landed on IR Sunday, but the Steelers remain hopeful that their 2015 first round draft pick will be able to return at some point this season. Although it seems that his muscle tear won't keep him sidelined the entire season, there is no guarantee that the 23-year-old will assume his starting role if he returns.

Injury
Abdomen - Injured Reserve
James Harrison
News
Harrison has been cleared of any steroid use following a meeting with NFL league officials, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.

Harrison, as well as Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers, were all subject to an interview with the NFL after they were linked to PED use in an Al-Jazeera documentary back in January. However, the whole group was cleared of any wrongdoing on Wednesday and collectively, will be eligible to play in Week 1. Harrison projects to be a depth option for the Steelers' linebacker core, likely coming in as relief for starter Jarvis Jones.

David Johnson
News
Johnson caught his only target for five yards in the Steelers' 24-16 win over the Bengals Sunday.

The one reception matches Johnson's total from 2015, and the five yards are the most he's put up in a season since 2013. In other words, unless your fantasy league rewards players for blocking, look elsewhere to fill your tight end needs.

Jordan Berry
No Updates
Valerian Ume-Ezeoke
Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Cortez Allen
News
Allen has been released by the Steelers.

Allen missed all of last season after suffering a knee injury in Week 1, but his release also comes after he signed a lucrative four-year extension with Pittsburgh in 2014. Now a free agent, Allen's absence further ensures the Steelers will address the cornerback position through the draft.

Injury
Bruce Gradkowski
News
The Steelers have placed Gradkowski on IR.

With Gradkowski headed for IR with his hamstring injury, the Steelers claimed Zach Mettenberger off waivers to give the team added QB depth behind Ben Roethlisberger and Landry Jones.

Injury
Hamstring - Injured Reserve
Justin Gilbert
News
The Browns traded Gilbert to the Browns on Saturday in exchange for a 2018 sixth-round pick, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The revolving door in the front office, coaching staff, and roster itself didn't help Gilbert's cause, but the 2014 first-round selection didn't come close to fulfilling his potential. With the move to a divisional rival, he'll have two opportunities per season to prove his former employers wrong.

Stephon Tuitt
News
Tuitt totaled four tackles (two solo) in Pittsburgh's loss to Denver on Sunday.

Tuitt recorded 54 tackles (39 solo), including 6.5 sacks and an interception this season. Despite playing in two fewer games than in his rookie season, the second year defensive lineman nearly doubled his snap count. As a result, he more than tripled his total tackles, and finished just one half sack behind Cameron Heyward for the team lead. Tuitt, who has one year remaining on his contract with Pittsburgh before becoming an unrestricted free agent, should continue to be a decent fantasy option in IDP leagues.

David DeCastro
News
The Steelers have decided to pick up the fifth-year option on offensive lineman David DeCastro's contract, reports 98.5 The Sports Hub.

DeCastro has started 31 games at guard for the Steelers over the last two seasons.

Zach Mettenberger
News
Mettenberger was claimed off waivers by the Steelers on Wednesday, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.

Mettenberger was released by the Chargers on Tuesday, but it took all of just one day for him to find a new home in Pittsburgh. The 25-year-old will likely have most of the team's final preseason game Thursday to make a case for the backup quarterback gig. Mettenberger will only have a few days to prove his worth over the likes of Bruce Gradkowski and Landry Jones as Saturday's 53-man roster deadline looms large.

Mike Mitchell
News
Mitchell tallied six combined tackles and added one pass defended during the Steelers' 38-16 win over the Redskins on Monday.

Mitchell was all over the field for the Steel Curtain on Monday. The 29-year-old came into the 2016 season nursing shoulder and hand ailments, but his performance Monday silenced any skepticism surrounding his health. After playing 98 percent of defensive snaps in Week 1, Mitchell figures to have cemented his spot in the Pittsburgh secondary for the 2016 campaign.

Cole Manhart
News
As expected, the Eagles signed center John Moffitt to a one-year contract on Monday, per Philly.com.

Moffitt was a third-round draft pick in 2011 and played two years for Seattle. He was traded to Denver and retired early in the 2013 season. 

He was arrested in 2014 on assault and drug charges, which were later dropped. 

To make room, the Eagles released undrafted rookie free agent Cole Manhart

Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Arthur Moats
News
Moats totaled three tackles (one solo), including a sack in Pittsburgh's 24-16 win over Cincinnati Sunday.

The Steelers' defense has held its first two opponents this season to 16 points each, despite recording just one sack and only a plus one turnover differential.

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).

Injury
Elbow - Limited Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 3 at Philadelphia
David Nelson
News
Nelson was released by the Steelers on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports.

The veteran wideout finished the season on IR and did not play a single snap for the Steelers prior to his release. It's unclear at this point if a team will take a flier on the oft-injured Nelson given that he's played in all of 18 games over the past three seasons, but his 6-foot-5 frame could be intriguing enough for a team to give him a shot in training camp.

Injury
Tyler Matakevich
News
The Steelers selected Matakevich in the seventh round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 246th overall.

Matakevich lacks the athleticism normally seen in starting NFL linebackers, but he'll get a long look from the league anyway thanks to his standout production on a strong Temple defense. Matakevich finished the 2015 season with 138 tackles (15 for a loss) and 4.5 sacks.

Roosevelt Nix-Jones
News
Nix (back) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's contest.

Nix is unlikely to suit up for Sunday's date with Philadelphia which means that he could be in line to miss a third consecutive game. On the bright side, it does appear that he will be able to play within the coming weeks regardless of his status for Sunday.

Injury
Back - Limited Practice on Friday. Doubtful for Week 3 at Philadelphia
DeAngelo Williams
News
Williams rushed for 94 yards on 32 carries, and added four catches for 38 yards and a touchdown on five targets in Sunday's victory over the Bengals.

This was a sloppy game on a ripped-up Heinz Field, which led to a heavy workload for the veteran running back. Williams continues to prove himself more than capable of stepping into a full-time role with Le'Veon Bell suspended, and he'll have the backfield mostly to himself again in Week 3 against the Eagles after finding pay dirt three times through two weeks. Enjoy this production while it lasts, because history suggests Bell's return will spell the end of Williams' heroics.

Jay Rome
Injury
RaShaun Allen
News
The Seahawks have signed 11 players to future contracts, the team announced Wednesday.

Running back Demitrius Bronson, wide receiver Douglas McNeil, tight end RaShaun Allen, tackle Justin Renfrow, guards Nate Isles and Drew Nowak, defensive ends Ryan Robinson and Julius Warmsley, defensive tackle Jimmy Staten, linebacker Mike Zimmer and safety Dion Bailey will look to compete for spots on the final 53-man roster in 2015.

Canaan Severin
Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Lawrence Timmons
News
Timmons and the Steelers are not expected to agree on a contract extension prior to kickoff on Monday, meaning he's slated to become a free agent following the 2016 season, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

Once the season begins, the Steelers are known to shut down all contract negotiations, so it appears Timmons will head to free agency following the season. Obviously that doesn't rule out Timmons from re-signing with the Steelers once the offseason is here, but it's at least notable that he'll have the option to explore other choices. Timmons has spent his entire 10-year career with the Steelers and hasn't missed a start in each of his last five seasons. He's coming off a 2015 campaign where he compiled 119 tackles, five sacks, one interception and one forced fumble and should remain one of the team's defensive leaders.

Cody Wallace
News
Wallace (knee) is ruled out for Week 3.

Wallace's unspecified knee injury will keep him sidelined for the third straight week. Luckily for the Steelers, Pittsburgh has one of the deepest offensive lines in the league.

Injury
Knee - Did Not Practice on Friday. Out for Week 3 at Philadelphia
Le'Veon Bell
News
Bell is among the Steelers' key players not slated to play in Thursday's preseason finale against the Panthers.

The same applies to DeAngelo Williams, who is set to fill in for Bell while he serves a three-game suspension to start the season. On Thursday, the team's depth backs will have an opportunity to make their cases for complementary roles heading into the regular season. Bell's next game action is slated to arrive on Oct. 2, when the Steelers face the Chargers at home in Week 4.

Injury
Suspension - Suspended until Week 4 vs. Kansas City
Fitzgerald Toussaint
News
Toussaint ran once for four yards, and caught his only target for nine yards in the Steelers' 24-16 win over the Bengals Sunday.

Toussaint now has four carries for 10 yards in a back-up role to DeAngelo Williams, and can expect to see even less action once Le'Veon Bell returns from his suspension after Pittsburgh's Week 3 game in Philadelphia.

Darrius Heyward-Bey
News
Heyward-Bey had one reception for seven yards in Pittsburgh's 24-16 win over Cincinnati Sunday.

The Bengals defense limited Ben Roethlisberger to just eight completions to wide receivers all game. Then again, DHB had just 21 receptions last season, so expectations should be tempered regardless of who the Steelers face.

Xavier Grimble
News
Grimble caught two passes for 26 yards and a touchdown in the Steelers' 24-16 win over the Bengals Sunday.

The rookie was targeted four times, recording his first career reception and touchdown. He and fellow tight end Jesse James may be in line for more targets with Ladarius Green (PUP-ankle) out for at least four more games.

Sean Davis
No Updates
Jesse James
News
James turned five targets into three catches for 29 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-16 win over the Bengals.

James has emerged as Pittsburgh's top receiving tight end with Ladarius Green (ankle) out for at least six weeks to open the season. While quarterback Ben Roethlisberger largely prefers to throw it to his bevy of talented receivers and running backs, he's still willing to look the 2015 fifth-rounder's way in the red zone. On a high-octane offense like Pittsburgh's, there should be enough chances in close to make James a serious scoring threat week in and week out.

David Cobb
News
Cobb signed with the Pittsburgh practice squad Wednesday, NFL.com Ian Rapoport's reports.

A fifth-round selection last year, Cobb fell out of the Titans' plans after the team traded for DeMarco Murray and drafted Derrick Henry. Given Pittsburgh's lack of proven talent behind Le'Veon Bell and DeAngelo Williams, it won't be surprising if Cobb eventually finds his way to the active roster. It would help his cause quite a bit if he could contribute on special teams.

Javon Hargrave
News
Hargrave (knee) was a full participant on Thursday after being limited earlier in the week.

Hargrave's injury was only described as a tweak, and if was never fully explained beyond that. He was likely kept out as a precaution and now appears to be full go for the season opener against the Redskins.

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.
Injury
Daryl Richardson
News
Richardson gained 20 yards on nine carries and four yards on one catch (one target) in Friday's preseason game against the Saints.

After Le'Veon Bell (suspension) and DeAngelo Williams played the first half, Richardson handled the third quarter and then split work with Fitzgerald Toussaint in the fourth quarter. No clear winner emerged in the battle for the No. 3 running back spot, as Toussaint was also ineffective on the ground, gaining eight yards on six carries and 18 yards on two receptions (two targets). With Bell suspended for the first three games, the Steelers may keep both Toussaint and Richardson on the final roster, extending the audition period through Week 3.

Cameron Heyward
News
Heyward (ankle) participated in full at the Steelers' Thursday practice.

Heyward has been limited since suffering a high ankle sprain in a preseason game. He said he expected to be ready for week one, which was seen as an optimistic recovery time, but he managed to do it and will play in the team's Week 1 contest against the Redskins.

Robert Golden
News
Golden recorded nine tackles (five solo) and a fumble recovery in the Steelers' 24-16 win over the Bengals Sunday.

The nine tackles were the most Golden has had in a game in his five-year career, and his 15 tackles through two games has him on pace to shatter his career best season total of 40 tackles set last year.

Al-Hajj Shabazz
No Updates
Cobi Hamilton
News
Hamilton caught four passes for 44 yards against the Eagles on Thursday.

Targeted a team-high seven times, Hamilton also led the Steelers in receptions and yardage. Pittsburgh has several receivers trying to earn a roster spot behind Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton, and Hamilton's performance may have drawn him even with Eli Rogers (four catches for 39 yards), although they are both still behind Sammie Coates and Darrius Heyward-Bey.

Vince Williams
News
Williams signed a three-year extension with the Steelers on Tuesday, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

After starting 11 games during his rookie season, Williams was moved back into a reserve role the past two years, but has been a reliable depth option for the Steelers. He's been rewarded with a three-year extension and is expected to continue to back up the likes of Lawrence Timmons and Ryan Shazier at inside linebacker. Williams is coming off a 2015 campaign where he posted a career-high 46 tackles, to go along with 0.5 sacks, so he'll look to continue to build on his recent success during the upcoming season.

Ladarius Green
News
Green (ankle) was transferred to the regular-season PUP list Tuesday, ruling him out for the first six games of the year, Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Green has recovered from January ankle surgery much slower than expected, with his continued absence from practice even stirring rumors that he's still bothered by symptoms from a concussion he suffered early last season. He recently shot down those rumors, speaking publicly for one of the few times since he signed a four-year, $20 million contract in March. The 26-year-old tight end did admit that is ankle is progressing slowly, as he only recently started bearing weight on the affected leg. The Steleers hope to have him back mid-season, but it does seem there's at least some chance Green ends up missing the entire year. 2015 fifth-round selection Jesse James has filled in as the starting tight end this preseason, with David Johnson and Xavier Grimble also picking up some first-team snaps.

Injury
Ankle - Physically Unable to Perform
Greg Warren
News
The Steelers announced that they resigned long-snapper Greg Warren to a one-year contract. 

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.

Caushaud Lyons
News
The lone injured player on the inactive list posted by the Steelers for their season opener Thursday night against New England is quarterback Landry Jones, who is dealing with a concussion.

Also inactive are tight end Jesse James, wideout Sammie Coates, cornerback Ross Cockrell, defensive ends Letterius Walton and Caushaud Lyons and offensive lineman Chris Hubbard.

William Gay
News
Gay has agreed to re-sign with the Steelers on a three-year contract, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Gay has yet to miss a game through nine seasons and has made 70 starts over the last five years. He was Pittsburgh's only reliable cornerback in 2015, and while he'll enter 2016 at 31 years old, Gay should be locked in as a starter for the next few seasons. The cornerback position should still be a priority for Pittsburgh in the draft.

Senquez Golson
News
Golson (foot) is ruled out for Sunday's contest with the Eagles.

Golson has not yet fully recovered from the Lisfranc surgery that he underwent in early August, but the 23-year-old is making tremendous progress. According to various reports, Golson is ahead of schedule and could be nearing a return to action in the coming weeks.

Artie Burns
News
Burns played just nine snaps during Monday's season opener at Washington.

Burns had been nursing a quadriceps injury for the majority of the preseason and the Steelers made a significant effort to ease his transition back to action. The highly-touted rookie is expected to see increased responsibilities in the Pittsburgh secondary as the season progresses.

Ben Roethlisberger
News
Roethlisberger completed 19 of 37 passes for 259 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions, and added a 14-yard scramble in Sunday's 24-16 victory over the Bengals.

Roethlisberger struggled to connect with top target Antonio Brown, but made up for it by taking deep shots to secondary receivers throughout the game. The veteran quarterback has a solid 6:3 touchdown to interception ratio through two games, and looks primed for another productive campaign if he can stay healthy. With No. 2 wideout Markus Wheaton likely to return from a shoulder injury next week, Big Ben's supporting cast should be even stronger against a beatable Eagles secondary.

Chris Boswell
News
Boswell made his lone field goal attempt (49) and converted all three extra point attempts in the Steelers' 24-16 win over the Bengals Sunday.

The Pittsburgh offense has been too efficient for Boswell owners, scoring eight touchdowns and attempting just two field goal attempts in their first two games. Still, as longs as they continue to fire on all cylinders, Boswell should get ample opportunities to score each week.

Jordan Dangerfield
News
The Steelers have signed safety Jordan Dangerfield to their practice sqaud, from which they released defensive end Ethan Hemer.

Dangerfield has yet to play in an NFL game.

Landry Jones
News
Jones for 111 yards, no touchdowns, and four interceptions on 12 of 20 passing in Thursday's shutout loss to the Eagles.

Jones was able to move the offense well, but his stagger total of four first half interceptions prevented the team from scoring on any drive. While the stat isn't great, his teammates and coaches did defend him, with some wideouts claiming they were at fault for the interceptions for poor route running and lack of aggression on jump balls. He's still the Steelers top backup quarterback as long as Bruce Gradkowski (hamstring) is sidelined.

Chris Hubbard
News
The lone injured player on the inactive list posted by the Steelers for their season opener Thursday night against New England is quarterback Landry Jones, who is dealing with a concussion.

Also inactive are tight end Jesse James, wideout Sammie Coates, cornerback Ross Cockrell, defensive ends Letterius Walton and Caushaud Lyons and offensive lineman Chris Hubbard.

Maurkice Pouncey
News
The Steelers decided to place offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey on their short-term injured reserve list, the team announced Sunday.

Pouncey suffered a broken fibula during a preseason game. He will miss the first eight weeks before being eligible to return.

Shamarko Thomas
News
Thomas (groin) practiced in full on Thursday.

Thomas had been out since injuring his groin against the Saints during the preseason, and he now appears to be healthy and ready to go for Pittsburgh's Week 1 tilt against Washington.

Steven Johnson
News
Johnson was signed by the Steelers on Sunday.

Johnson was signed after the team opted to place Bud Dupree on IR. The 28-year-old last played for the Titans in 2015.

L.T. Walton
News
Walton was a healthy inactive in Week 1.

Walton played in just six games as a rookie despite being on the active roster. He's one of the team's last options at defensive line and isn't likely to see much of any time this season.

Sammie Coates
News
Coates had two receptions for 97 yards, and one carry for six yards in Pittsburgh's 24-16 win over Cincinnati Sunday.

Coates, who led the team in receiving yards, was targeted five times by Ben Roethlisberger, second only to the 11 passes thrown to Antonio Brown. Coates is averaging over 38 yards per catch after two games, but doesn't get enough targets to merit serious fantasy consideration, and may see even fewer once Markus Wheaton (shoulder) returns to action.

Jerald Hawkins
Injury
Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Travis Feeney
News
The Steelers selected Feeney in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 220th overall.

Feeney was very disruptive at Washington -- 17.5 of his 56 tackles in 2015 were for a loss -- and he showed elite athleticism at the Combine by running a 4.50-second 40-yard dash at 6-foot-4, 230 pounds. He might have fallen this far due to durability worries.

Alejandro Villanueva
News
The Eagles trimmed their roster to 76 players Saturday, as they announced the waiving of 14 players.

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.

Dan McCullers-Sanders
News
McCullers (knee) was a full participant at Saturday's practice.

After practicing without any limitations Saturday, McCullers appears to be ready to go for Monday's matchup with Washington. McCullers appeared in 12 games for the Steelers last season.

Eli Rogers
News
Rogers managed just one catch for nine yards on three targets in Sunday's win over the Bengals.

Rogers came crashing down to earth after scoring in his debut, trailing Antonio Brown and Sammie Coates in production at the wide receiver position by a wide margin. The slot receiver will likely continue to hold on to that job moving forward, but he's about to have yet another opponent to jostle with for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's attention with Markus Wheaton (shoulder) due back next week. Pittsburgh doesn't lack for playmakers on offense, so it won't be easy for Rogers to carve out a consistent role every week.

Martavis Bryant
News
Bryant was never under consideration of being cut by the Steelers despite his recently imposed year-long suspension, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Bryant's multiple violations of the league's substance abuse policy triggered a minimum one-year suspension from the league, but the Steelers never considered releasing him, according to general manager Kevin Colbert. Instead, Pittsburgh will hope Bryant makes the necessary changes to his life to get reinstated next year, when he would have two years remaining on his contract with the team. With Bryant suspended, Steelers receivers Markus Wheaton and, more specifically, Sammie Coates, will be looked upon to take advantage of their increased opportunities this season.
