  • Heyward (pectoral) is listed as the starting left defensive end ahead of this week's preseason matchup with the Falcons, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports. Heyward has been dealing with a pectoral injury that has kept him out since November of last year, but given his status as a projected starter two days ahead of the Steelers' second preseason contest, it appears he's ready to make his return. The team will likely remain cautious with Heyward to ensure his health for the start of the regular season.

  • Steelers' Cameron Heyward: Recovery on track
    By RotoWire Staff

    Heyward (chest) is on track to be ready for the regular season, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Heyward suffered a pectoral injury in November of last season that was expected to require a six-month recovery timeline. The team is opting to exercise caution with the veteran, as it has avoided placing him in full offensive and defensive drills in the offseason program. Although the Steelers are not showing a sense of urgency to implement him fully into their organized team activities, he's on track for a healthy start to the 2017 season. The 28-year-old tallied three sacks in seven games prior to the injury last season.
