Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Finishes season with 11 sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt recorded three solo tackles, including one sack, in Sunday's 24-22 loss to the Browns.

Tuitt saw a significant snap count in the Steelers' regular-season finale, and he recorded a sack for the fourth time in the past five weeks. The 27-year-old generated 45 tackles (33 solo) during the regular season. Tuitt also had 11 sacks, by far the highest mark of his career. He'll enter the final year of his contract during his age-28 season in 2021.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Good to go Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt (back) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Colts, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

The 27-year-old sat out the first two practices of the week due to the back issue, but he was able to practice with no limitations Friday to avoid the questionable tag. Tuitt has a career-high nine sacks in 13 games this season.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Managing back injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt (back) did not practice Wednesday, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

The Steelers are facing a short week of practice ahead of Sunday's game against the Colts, so it's possible that load management is playing a role in Tuitt's absence. The starting defensive end will have two more chances to resume practicing before the Steelers assign him a Week 16 injury designation.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Activated off COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt (undisclosed) has officially been activated off the Steelers' reserve/COVID-19 list, Mark Kaboly of The Athletic reports.

It remains unclear if Tuitt actually tested positive for the illness or simply had close contact with somebody who has. Barring any setbacks, he is now on track to resume his usual role at defensive end in Monday's matchup with the Washington Football Team.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Lands on COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Steelers have officially placed Tuitt on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

It is unclear whether Tuitt has actually tested positive for the illness or if he just had close contact with someone who has. The Steelers' game versus the Ravens has been pushed back until Tuesday, so he will need to be cleared prior to then for any chance at suiting up this week. He currently ranks fifth on the team in tackles with 31 (22 solo) to go along with six sacks.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Forces fumble against Jacksonville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt recorded a sack, a forced fumble and one defensed pass in Sunday's 27-3 win over the Jaguars.

Tuitt was the first of two Steelers to bring down Jake Luton in Sunday's win, and he forced a fumble on the play that was recovered by Jacksonville. The 27-year-old has now set his career-high sack total over the first 10 games of 2020.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Lives in Baltimore's backfield
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt totaled nine tackles (eight solo), two sacks and three tackles for loss in Sunday's 28-24 win over the Ravens.

Tuitt was a disruptive force, often forcing negative plays in Baltimore's backfield and laying three hits on quarterback Lamar Jackson. He has six sacks in seven games, leaving Tuitt just half a sack short of tying the career high he set back in 2015.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Notches 1.5 sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt recorded five tackles and 1.5 sacks in Sunday's 38-29 win over the Eagles.

Although his tackle count is low, Tuitt's off to a hot start this season with 3.5 sacks and 11 quarterback pressures through four games. The 2014 second-round pick is second to T.J. Watt for the team lead in sacks as well. Tuitt has played at least 70 percent of the defensive snaps in every game this year, so this production is sustainable if he can stay healthy.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Another sack Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt totaled four tackles (two solo) including a sack in the Steelers' 28-21 Week 3 win over the Texans Sunday.

With two sacks in three games, Tuitt is on pace to shatter his career-best 6.5 sacks during the first full season and only the second of his career. Pittsburgh trailed at halftime for the first time this season, but the defense held Houston to just 51 yards and two first downs after the break.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Back to work Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt (Achilles) was a full participant for Thursday's practice, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.

Tuitt popped up on the injury report Wednesday with an Achilles issue that he may have suffered in Week 1 against the Giants. Now healthy, expect the veteran to handle his normal starting duties at defensive end.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Can't go Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt (Achilles) did not practice Wednesday, Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazzette reports.

Tuitt notched one tackle and a single sack during Monday's 26-16 win over the Giants, but he also appears to have picked up an Achilles issue during the contest. The starting defensive end will have two more chances to up his level of practice activity before Sunday's game against the Broncos.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt (undisclosed) is not listed on Thursday's injury report, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.

Tuitt has fully recovered from the undisclosed injury he managed during training camp. The veteran defensive end is on track for Monday's game against the Giants, though his lack of consistent upside as a pass rusher leaves him without a safe fantasy floor in IDP formats.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Sidelined during practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt (undisclosed) didn't participate in Saturday's practice, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Tuitt missed the final 10 games of the 2019 season due to a torn pectoral muscle, and now he's hampered by another injury. Nothing signals that this injury is related to his pectoral injury, but it's worth keeping an eye on Tuitt's progress, as he's in line to start at defensive end again this season.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Back for 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt (pectoral) should retain his starting spot at defensive end for 2020, Tim Benz of the Pittburgh Tribune-Review reports.

The 27-year-old had a strong start to the season with 3.5 sacks through six games, but he suffered a torn pectoral Week 6 and required season-ending surgery. Tuitt should play a significant role up front for the Steelers in 2020, especially with the offseason departure of Javon Hargrave.

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.
