Top Darrius Heyward-Bey News

  • Steelers' Darrius Heyward-Bey: Worst season of career

    Heyward-Bey was not targeted during Sunday's 16-13 win over Cincinnati.

    Heyward-Bey played just 76 offensive snaps all season, finishing with one reception (on two targets) for nine yards in 14 games. He also ran once for minus-7 yards. These were all career lows for the 10-year veteran. Heyward-Bey turns 32 this offseason and is likely to receive little interest on the open market as an unrestricted free agent.

  • Steelers' Darrius Heyward-Bey: First reception this season in blowout win

    Heyward-Bey caught his lone target for nine yards during Thursday's 52-21 win over Carolina.

    DHB entered the contest without a catch on the season and only one reception dating back to Week 8 of 2017. Now in his 10th season in the league, Heyward-Bey is an unrestricted free agent next season.

  • Steelers' Darrius Heyward-Bey: Full participant Thursday

    Heyward-Bey (ankle) was a full participant at practice Thursday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

    Heyward-Bey missed Pittsburgh's last three games due to his ankle injury, but the team's Week 7 bye appears to have afforded him enough time to recover. He'll be expected to return to his role as a depth receiver for this week's matchup with Cleveland.

  • Steelers' Darrius Heyward-Bey: Limited in practice again

    Heyward-Bey (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

    Heyward-Bey appears to have progressed in his recovery during the team's Week 7 bye but hasn't completely recovered from a lingering ankle issue. The depth wideout's availability for Sunday's game against the Browns will be determined by his participation in practice as the week continues.

  • Steelers' Darrius Heyward-Bey: Practices on limited basis

    Coach Mike Tomlin said Heyward-Bey (ankle) was a partial participant in Monday's practice, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

    The Steelers won't hold their first official practice of Week 8 until Wednesday, but the team reconvened for a workout Monday coming off a Week 7 bye. The week off looks like it has done Heyward-Bey some good, as he was unable to practice in any capacity in Week 6 before sitting out the Steelers' 28-21 win over the Bengals. He should have a good shot at being available for Sunday's game against the Browns, though Heyward-Bey's standing as the fifth or sixth man on the depth chart at receiver means he's not guaranteed to dress for the contest even if healthy.

  • Steelers' Darrius Heyward-Bey: Ruled out for Week 6

    Heyward-Bey (ankle) will not play against the Bengals on Sunday.

    Going into last week's matchup against the Falcons, Heyward-Bey was listed as doubtful but ultimately didn't play. The Maryland product was unable to practice in any capacity this week. Heyward-Bey will have the next two weeks to recover, as the Steelers have their bye in Week 7.

  • Steelers' Darrius Heyward-Bey: Doubtful for Week 5

    The Steelers are listing Heyward-Bey (ankle) as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports.

    Heyward-Bey was sidelined throughout the week of practice after exiting Sunday's loss to the Ravens with the ankle injury. He's logged just 16 offensive snaps through the Steelers' first four games, so his expected absence won't have much impact on the team's passing game.

  • Steelers' Darrius Heyward-Bey: Exits with ankle injury

    Heyward-Bey left Sunday's game against the Ravens with an ankle injury and won't return, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

    Heyward-Bey logged 11 snaps on offense and 54 on special teams through the first three weeks of the season, after catching just two passes in 16 games last year. He's merely used as an emergency option in the Pittsburgh offense.

  • Steelers' Darrius Heyward-Bey: Runs for score in win

    Heyward-Bey was not targeted, but ran once for a 29-yard touchdown in Sunday's 28-24 win over the Browns, finishing the 2017 season with two catches (on three targets) for 47 yards. He also ran two times for 32 yards and the one touchdown playing in all 16 games.

    The two receptions were the fewest in a season during DHB's nine-year career, and only the second time in his career without a touchdown reception, while the rushing touchdown was his second in two seasons. Although he is under contract until 2019, Heyward-Bey is only guaranteed $400,000, so his future with the Steelers may be in question.

  • Steelers' Darrius Heyward-Bey: Returns to game

    Heyward-Bey returned to Sunday's game against the Colts after injuring his foot, Burt Lauten of the Steelers' official site reports.

    Heyward-Bey was only out for a series before he was deemed healthy enough to get into the game. He'll return to his role as a depth receiver with special teams upside.

  • Steelers' Darrius Heyward-Bey: Hurts left foot

    Heyward-Bey injured his left foot Sunday against the Colts and is questionable to return, Burt Lauten of the Steelers' official site reports.

    Heyward-Bey plays a bulk of his snaps on special teams, so fantasy owners likely won't notice his absence. However, with Justin Hunter also inactive Sunday, the Steelers are down to just four healthy wideouts.

  • Steelers' Darrius Heyward-Bey: Hauls in first catch this season

    Heyward-Bey caught his only target for 44 yards during Sunday's 29-14 victory over the Bengals.

    The pass, thrown by Robert Golden on a fake punt, was Heyward-Bey's first target of the year so, unless Golden takes over at quarterback for Ben Roethlisberger, there is no reason to consider adding Heyward-Bey to your fantasy roster.

  • Steelers' Darrius Heyward-Bey: Gets first touch of season

    Heyward-Bey ran once for three yards in Pittsburgh's 26-9 win over Baltimore on Sunday.

    The veteran receiver still has no receiving targets through four games this season and serves almost exclusively as a special-teams player. If he's on your roster, feel free to cut him loose.

  • Steelers' Darrius Heyward-Bey: Sits out practice Wednesday

    Heyward-Bey is dealing with an illness and didn't practice Wednesday.

    It's unclear if Heyward-Bey is expected to miss any more practice time this week, but he's mostly off the fantasy radar at this point, regardless. The 30-year-old has played 39 snaps through the Steelers' first two games, but all but three have come on special teams.
