    09/26/16DBSenquez GolsonFootOUTGolson (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.

    09/26/16RBRoosevelt Nix-JonesBackQUESTIONABLENix (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.

    07/29/16WRMartavis BryantSuspensionSUSPENDBryant 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.

    09/29/16TETyler EifertANKLEDOUBTFULEifert (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Thursday's game against the Dolphins, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

    Assuming Eifert is inactive Thursday, look for the tight end to target a return to action in Week 5, when the Bengals travel to Dallas for an Oct. 9 matchup against the Cowboys. In the meantime, Tyler Kroft and C.J. Uzomah are in line to handle the team's tight end duties in Week 4.

    09/29/16CBDre KirkpatrickHAMSTRINGDOUBTFULKirkpatrick (hamstring) is considered doubtful for Thursday's game against the Dolphins, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

    Kirkpatrick's likeliness to play Thursday isn't very optimistic at this point after having missed practice throughout the week. If he's unable to play, Chris Lewis-Harris is slated to fill in at starting cornerback.

    09/29/16SDerron SmithCHESTQUESTIONABLESmith (chest) did not participate in Monday's practice, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Smith finished Sunday's loss to the Broncos with two tackles. He also came out of the contest with a chest injury. The Bengals are currently facing a short week, so his status for Thursday's matchup against the Dolphins is currently up in the air.
