  • Steelers' Alex Highsmith: Gets back into sack column

    Highsmith recorded eight tackles (five solo), including 1.5 sacks, in Sunday's 24-10 loss versus the Cardinals.

    Highsmith's tackle total in Week 13 was a season high, and he registered in the sack column for the first time since Week 9 versus the Titans. He's had a down year compared to his fantastic numbers in 2022, but Highsmith and T.J. Watt still make for a formidable pass-rushing duo.

  • Steelers' Alex Highsmith: Pair of sacks in win

    Highsmith recorded four tackles and two sacks in Thursday's 20-16 win over the Titans.

    Highsmith entered the game with only 2.5 sacks across his first seven games of the campaign. He nearly doubled that mark in Thursday's contest, as he took down Will Levis twice for a combined minus-10 yards. Highsmith will look to use this contest as momentum to get to the quarterback more consistently across the second half of the season. The Steelers meet the Packers in Week 10.
