Steelers' Tyler Matakevich: Contributes on special teams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matakevich had one tackle (solo) during Sunday's 16-13 win over Cincinnati.

The third-year linebacker finished the 2018 season with 16 tackles in 16 games. He played just 54 defensive snaps, spending most of his time on special teams and has one year remaining on his current contract.

Steelers' Tyler Matakevich: Favored for starting ILB job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matakevich (shoulder) is healthy and now the frontrunner to be starting ILB for the Steelers after OTAs, ESPN.com reports.

The Steelers signed Jon Bostic, who had 97 tackles (57 solo) for the Colts last season, but it's Matakevich who stole the show during offseason workouts. Matakevich played with an edge while showing off his football instincts, and that combination makes him the likely replacement for Ryan Shazier (spine). The 2016 seventh-round pick has never played more than 60 defensive snaps in a season, however, so a solid preseason will be needed to solidify his role.

Steelers' Tyler Matakevich: Hopes to be back for offseason workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matakevich (shoulder) hopes to be fully recovered in time for offseason workouts, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Matakevich underwent surgery in January to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder. Even with Ryan Shazier (neck) ruled out for the entire 2018 season, a healthy Matakevich isn't considered a realistic candidate to step into the first-string lineup since the Steelers signed veteran Jon Bostic to step in next to incumbent starter Vince Williams.
