  • Steelers' T.J. Watt: Limited by injury in 2022

    Watt tallied 39 tackles (27 solo), including 5.5 sacks, along with two interceptions, five pass defenses and a forced fumble over 10 games in 2022. Watt earned Defensive Player of the Year honors in 2021 by racking up a career-high 22.5 sacks, tying Michael Strahan's record. However, he sustained a knee injury in Week 1 of the 2022 campaign and missed seven games after undergoing arthroscopic surgery. The 2017 first-rounder was limited to a career-low 5.5 sacks but will be able to recover during the offseason and will attempt to return to dominance in 2023.

  • Steelers' Terrell Edmunds: Remains effective in 2022

    Edmunds generated 70 tackles (41 solo), including two sacks, along with five pass defenses over 15 games in 2022. Edmunds missed two games due to injury in 2022, but he logged at least 70 tackles for the fourth time over his first five professional seasons while also posting a career-high mark in sacks. The 25-year-old is slated to become an unrestricted free agent during the offseason, but it wouldn't be surprising to see the Steelers express interest in bringing him back given the impact he's had over his five seasons with the team.

  • Steelers' Alex Highsmith: Posts career-high sack mark in 2022

    Highsmith totaled 63 tackles (38 solo), including 14.5 sacks, along with five forced fumbles and a pass defense over 17 games in 2022. Highsmith's tackle mark was slightly down in 2022 after he posted 74 tackles over 16 appearances in 2021, but he posted career-high totals in sacks and forced fumbles during his third professional season. The 25-year-old finished the year on a high note but matched his second-highest tackle total of the season while logging his second-highest sack total of the year during the Steelers' Week 18 win over Cleveland. Highsmith should continue to see plenty of work for Pittsburgh in 2023.

  • Steelers' Cameron Heyward: Productive to close out season

    Heyward racked up 74 tackles (39 solo), including 10.5 sacks, along with four pass defenses, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery over 17 appearances in 2022. Heyward appeared in every game for the fourth time in the last five seasons and posted the second-highest sack total of his career during his age-33 season. He tallied 5.5 sacks over the final four weeks of the season and logged a season-high eight tackles during the Steelers' Week 18 win over Cleveland. He has a significant cap hit over the final two years of his contract with the Steelers, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him remain with the team given how productive he's been over the last several seasons.

  • Steelers' Devin Bush: Quiet finish to 2022 season

    Bush recorded 81 tackles (44 solo) and two pass defenses over 17 games in 2022. Although Bush appeared in every game this season, his workload significantly decreased over the final two games of the year, as he was limited to just nine defensive snaps during that time. He had his highest mark in tackles since he racked up 109 tackles during his rookie season in 2019, but it was discouraging to see his decreased snap count late in the year. The 2019 first-rounder is slated to hit unrestricted free agency during the offseason, and it's possible he seeks out another team in hopes of getting a fresh start.

  • Steelers' Minkah Fitzpatrick: Productive during 2022 campaign

    Fitzpatrick logged 96 tackles (56 solo), six interceptions, 11 pass defenses and a touchdown over 15 games during the 2022 season. Last season, Fitzpatrick matched the second-lowest mark of his career with two interceptions, but he bounced back with a career-high six interceptions in 2022 while nearly posting 100 tackles. The 26-year-old had double-digit tackles on three occasions this year and should remain a prominent member of the Steelers' secondary in 2023 since he signed a four-year, $73.6 million deal with Pittsburgh in June of 2022.

  • Steelers' Myles Jack: Tops 100 tackles once again

    Jack recorded 104 tackles (61 solo) and three pass defenses over 15 games during the 2022 season. Jack was limited by a groin injury over the final few weeks of the season and appeared in just 15 games this year, but he still managed to top 100 tackles for the fourth time in the last five seasons. The 27-year-old has been incredibly consistent despite playing no more than 15 games in any of the last four seasons, and he'll enter the final year of his two-year, $16 million contract with the Steelers next season.

  • Steelers' Minkah Fitzpatrick: Will play Sunday

    Fitzpatrick (ankle) is active Sunday against the Browns. Fitzpatrick closed out the week with a limited practice Friday, which set the stage for him to take the field Sunday. The star safety's ability to suit up is certainly good news for the Steelers, as they look to increase their chances for a playoff spot with a win against Cleveland.

  • Steelers' Myles Jack: Ready to go Sunday

    Jack (groin) is active Sunday against the Browns. Jack missed Week 17 and closed out the week as a limited participant in practice Friday. However, he's feeling well enough to return to action and will suit up Week 18.

  • Steelers' Tre Norwood: Unavailable Sunday

    Norwood is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Browns. Norwood will now be sidelined for a second consecutive matchup due to the hamstring issue that's caused him to miss two practices this week. The second-year pro has primarily been limited to a special-teams role since Week 7, so his absence isn't expected to alter Pittsburgh's defensive game plan.

  • Steelers' James Pierre: Set to play Sunday

    Pierre (concussion) has cleared league protocol and is expected to play Sunday versus the Browns, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports. Pierre was a full participant at practice all week and looks likely to return to the the Steelers' secondary for their regular-season finale against Cleveland. The 26-year-old will be back in his role as a depth option in the secondary behind the likes of Cameron Sutton and Arthur Maulet at cornerback.

  • Steelers' Myles Jack: Gets questionable tag

    Jack (groin) was a limited participant at practice Friday and is considered questionable to play Sunday versus the Browns. Jack missed last week's win over the Ravens as he continues to deal with a groin issue, and his status still remains up in the air for the Steelers' regular-season finale Week 18. The 27-year-old opened this week with two absences at practice before returning in a limited capacity Friday. If the linebacker remains unavailable Sunday, Robert Spillane will likely draw the start in his place against Cleveland.

  • Steelers' Minkah Fitzpatrick: Receives questionable tag

    Fitzpatrick (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns. The star safety was sidelined for the Steelers' first two Week 18 practices, but his ability to put in a limited session Friday leaves the door open for him to play in the regular-season finale. Given that the Steelers can clinch a playoff berth with a win and losses by the Dolphins and Patriots this weekend, Fitzpatrick has some incentive to play through the injury at less than 100 percent health. He's played all but two of the Steelers' defensive snaps in each of the past seven games, totaling 41 tackles, five pass breakups and three interceptions during that stretch.

  • Steelers' Myles Jack: Sitting out practice with injury

    Jack (groin) was listed as a non-participant on the Steelers' injury report Thursday. Jack aggravated a lingering groin injury in Sunday's win over the Ravens, causing him to be ruled out in the third quarter. While he has now failed to suit up for the first two practices during Week 18 prep, the 27-year-old said he was able to do some sprints and change-of-direction exercises after Thursday's sessions. Jack will now have one more opportunity to improve his status before Friday's final injury report, which should provide the clearest outlook for availability heading into this Sunday's regular-season finale versus Cleveland.

  • Steelers' Minkah Fitzpatrick: Sits out practice again Thursday

    Fitzpatrick (ankle) did not participate in the Steelers' practice Thursday. Fitzpatrick was forced out for three defensive snaps after he picked up an ankle injury in the third quarter of Sunday's win over the Ravens. While the star safety has now sat out each of the first two practices during Week 18 prep, coach Mike Tomlin said Thursday the team is not "overly concerned" about the issue affecting his availability moving forward. Fitzpatrick will now have one more opportunity to increase his activity before the Steelers must assign him an official game status Friday ahead of the regular-season finale against Cleveland this Sunday.

  • Steelers' William Jackson: Designated to return

    The Steelers designated Jackson (back) to return from injured reserve Wednesday, per the team's official site. Jackson, who's been on injured reserve with a nagging back issue since Nov. 12, returned to practice Wednesday, ultimately opening the 21-day window for the Steelers to activate him to the active roster. The 30-year-old was acquired by Pittsburgh via a trade with Washington prior to the team's Week 9 bye, but he has yet to make his Steelers' debut.

  • Steelers' James Pierre: Logs full practice

    Pierre (concussion) was a full participant in practice Wednesday. Pierre suffered a concussion Sunday against the Ravens. His ability to log a full practice is certainly good news for his potential availability Week 18 against the Browns. However, it doesn't necessarily mean he's cleared the league protocols, so he's currently questionable against Cleveland.

  • Steelers' Minkah Fitzpatrick: Picks off pass in Week 17

    Fitzpatrick tallied nine tackles (four solo) and one interception during Sunday's 16-13 win over the Ravens. Fitzpatrick tied Robert Spillane with a team-high nine tackles and picked off his sixth pass of the season, setting a new career high. The 2018 first-round pick will look to maintain his strong play against the Browns in Week 18.

  • Steelers' T.J. Watt: Another disruptive outing

    Watt totaled four tackles (three solo) and one sack during Sunday's 16-13 win over the Ravens. Two of Watt's four tackles went for a loss, including a 10-yard sack of Tyler Huntley in the third quarter, and the superstar pass rusher also tallied three QB hits. Watt's overall numbers aren't as prolific as previous years due to a seven-game absence earlier in the season due to a pectoral injury, but the 2017 first-round pick is still a premier defender and will look to keep the Steelers' playoff hopes alive with a strong performance against the Browns in Week 18.

  • Steelers' Robert Spillane: Notches eight solo tackles in win

    Spillane notched nine tackles (eight solo), including one for loss, during Sunday's 16-13 win over the Ravens. Spillane tied Minkah Fitzpatrick with a team-high nine stops, marking the former's second-highest mark this season. Spillane has played every single defensive snap over the past three weeks, totaling 28 tackles during that stretch.
