Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Plays just six games this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt (pectoral) was off to a strong start in 2019 with 3.5 sacks through six games before suffering a season-ending injury.

On pace for a career-best nine sacks before getting hurt, Tuitt finished the 2019 season with 22 tackles, including 3.5 sacks. Under contract until 2023, he is expected to assume the starting left end position in 2020 if healthy. This would impact the playing time of Tyson Alualu and would be a significant upgrade to a defensive unit that already led the league in sacks and takeaways, while also allowing the fifth-fewest yards and points.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt (pectoral) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

It was already reported Monday that Tuitt would miss the remainder of the 2019 season with a torn pectoral, so Tuesday's transaction is simply a formality. Tyson Alualu will likely take over in Tuitt's absence for the remainder of the campaign.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Out for year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt will miss the rest of the season after an MRI confirmed he tore his pectoral in Sunday's loss to the Chargers, Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports.

Tuitt's injury will require surgery, and he will now set his sights on recovering for the 2020 season. Tyson Alualu took over in his absence following the injury and is presumably in line to start at defensive end going forward.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Will undergo additional tests
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt will have an MRI to determine the extent of his pectoral injury, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Tuitt exited Sunday's win over the Chargers during the first quarter and didn't return. He was off to a strong start this year with 3.5 sacks through six games. Tyson Alualu took over Tuitt's workload after he left, and he's in line to start at defensive end if Tuitt has a long-term injury, barring a trade or free-agent acquisition.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Will not return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt will not return to Sunday's game against the Chargers due to his pectoral injury.

The extent of Tuitt's injury is not yet known, but he will not see any more snaps Sunday night. He will have an extra week to recover from his injury with the Steelers on bye in Week 7.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Leaves with pectoral injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt suffered a pectoral injury of the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Chargers and is questionable to return, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

It's not clear how Tuitt suffered the injury, but his status will be updated further when either he returns to the game or more details become available.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Another sack in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt recorded 10 tackles (nine solo) including a sack in Sunday's 24-20 loss to San Francisco.

The defense dominated the first half of the game, forcing four turnovers and not allowing San Francisco to run a play from scrimmage over 10 yards. However, Pittsburgh's inability to get to Jimmy Garoppolo -- Tuitt's first-quarter sack was their only one of the game -- ultimately led to their defeat. He now has 2.5 sacks in the past two games and he'll look to add to that total in Week 4 against a Cincinnati offensive line that has allowed 11 sacks through three games. In two games against Cincinnati last season, Tuitt recorded 1.5 sacks.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Strong first half not enough
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt totaled four tackles (three solo) including 2.5 sacks in Pittsburgh's 28-26 loss to Seattle on Sunday.

The defense looked dominant in the first half, recording four sacks and holding the Seahawks to seven points. The second half was a different story, as they failed to record a sack and allowed 21 points to suffer their second loss this season. Tuitt and the Steelers will look to avoid their first 0-3 start since 2013 when they head to San Francisco in Week 3, but the 49'ers O-line has allowed just one sack in their first two games this season.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Records two sacks in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt totaled two tackles (both solo) for two sacks in Sunday's 18-6 preseason win over Tennessee.

Both sacks came on third-down plays for the Titans, with one forcing a punt. The other resulted in a safety when Tuitt overcame a block by Ben Jones and got Marcus Mariota on the ground in the end zone to give the Steelers a 2-0 lead. Tuitt looks to be in regular-season form and eager to help the defense in their quest to lead the league in sacks for a third consecutive season.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Has contract restructured
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Steelers converted $5.195 million of Tuitt's $6 million base salary into a signing bonus Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Tuitt originally signed a five-year, $60 million dollar deal in September of 2017. The reworking of his contract ultimately created $3.9 million in 2019 cap space for Pittsburgh. Through 14 games last season, Tuitt recorded 45 total tackles, 5.5 sacks and four pass breakups.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Adds to sack total in season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt recorded three tackles (two solo) -- including a half-sack -- during Sunday's 16-13 win over Cincinnati.

Minor injuries have forced Tuitt to miss two or more games in each of the past four seasons, but he continues to make his presence felt by finishing the 2018 season with 45 tackles -- including 5.5 sacks -- in 14 games. His tackle and sack totals were his best since 2015 and, with three years remaining on his current contract, Tuitt should return as part of a Pittsburgh defensive unit that tied for the league lead with 52 sacks and a league-best 108 sacks over the past two seasons.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Records sack in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt recorded two tackles (one solo) -- including a sack -- during Sunday's 31-28 loss to New Orleans.

The sack was his second in three games, giving him five for the season. Tuitt needs 1.5 sacks in Week 17 to match his career high set in 2015. He had one sack against Cincinnati earlier this season.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Notches fourth sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt had three tackles (two solo) and a sack in Sunday's loss to the Raiders.

Tuitt missed two games with an elbow injury but has been able to take up his usual starting workload at defensive end the last two games. The 25-year-old has 37 tackles (22 solo) and four sacks through 11 games this season.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt (elbow) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Tuitt was limited in practice to begin the week, but he had his participation upgraded to full Thursday. The fifth-year pro appears to have returned to full health after sitting out two straight games, and he's on track to retake his starting role during Sunday's primetime tilt against the Chargers.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Limited in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt was limited in Wednesday's practice due to an elbow injury.

Tuitt has missed two straight games due to a hyperextended right elbow. The five-year pro's limited participation in Wednesday's practice is encouraging, given that he did not suit up for practice a single time last week, but his chances of playing against the Chargers on Sunday are still murky. If Tuitt is unable to go, expect Tyson Alualu and Daniel McCullers to once again see an uptick in defensive snaps.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Ruled out again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt (elbow) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Tuitt was unable to practice in any capacity this week and will miss his second straight game due to a hyperextended right elbow. Both Tyson Alualu and Daniel McCullers will see an uptick in defensive snaps as long as Tuitt remains sidelined.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt (elbow) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Tuitt suffered a hyperextended right elbow in last Thursday's win over the Panthers and did not practice this week, despite his initial expectation to play at Jacksonville. Tyson Alualu should slot into the starting spot at right defensive end for the Steelers.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: No practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt (elbow) did not practice Wednesday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Tuitt was able to suit up against the Panthers in Week 10 despite his lingering elbow issue, but does not appear to have fully recovered from the injury. The starting defensive end's status for Sunday's tilt against the Jaguars seems to be in question, and if Tuitt is unable to play, expect Tyson Alualu to receive an increased defensive workload.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Expects to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt (elbow) noted that he hyperextended his right elbow in last Thursday's win over Carolina but expects to play Sunday against the Jaguars, Gerry Dulac of The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Tuitt suffered the injury when teammate Terrell Edmunds ran into his arm, however, the defensive end was able to finish the contest. Tuitt underwent an MRI on Tuesday and could see a limited workload in practice this week if the Steelers decide to exercise caution. However, his expectation of suiting up Sunday is a favorable sign.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Third straight game with sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt had just one tackle (solo) for a sack during Sunday's 23-16 win over Baltimore.

After failing to record a sack in his first five games this season, Tuitt has had one in each of his last three games. He'll look to keep that streak alive in Week 10 against the Panthers. Although a fixture on the preseason schedule, Pittsburgh has not faced Carolina in a regular-season game since 2014.
