Steelers' L.J. Fort: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fort (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Fort has not seen the field since Week 5 due to a lingering ankle injury, but appears to be nearing a full recovery. If the rotational linebacker is able to continue practicing without limitations as the week continues, he should be expected to suit up for Sunday's game against the Browns.

Steelers' L.J. Fort: Inactive Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fort (ankle) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Fort did not practice this week and was listed as doubtfu, so this was to be expected. Matthew Thomas could see increased snaps on special teams and serve as Jon Bostic's backup at inside linebacker.

Steelers' L.J. Fort: Doubtful for Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fort (ankle) is considered doubtful for Sunday's matchup against the Bengals.

Fort was unable to log a practice in any capacity this week. The 28-year-old sustained the injury last week against the Falcons. If Fort misses playing time, Matthew Thomas could get more snaps.

Steelers' L.J. Fort: Sits out Wednesday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fort was held out of Wednesday's practice with an apparent ankle injury, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports.

Fort allegedly sustained the ankle injury during Sunday's win over the Falcons. His absence during Wednesday's session raises real concerns regarding his status for Sunday. More certainty pertaining to his availability should become apparent as Sunday inches closer. If he can't play, Matthew Thomas could be asked to play a bigger role for the divisional tilt.

Steelers' L.J. Fort: Scores first career touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fort totaled six tackles (all solo) including a sack and recovered a fumble for a touchdown during Sunday's 41-17 win over the Falcons.

With Vince Williams (hamstring) inactive, the seldom-used Fort took advantage of an increase in playing time and recorded his most tackles in a game since October 2012. The sack was his first of the season, and his recovery of Matt Ryan's fumble in the end zone was his first career touchdown. If Williams can't go in Week 6, Fort will get another opportunity when they visit the Bengals, whom they have beaten the last five meetings.
