Steelers' Mike Hilton: Paces defense, records sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilton led the defense with eight tackles (all solo), including a sack, in Sunday's 26-21 win over the Broncos.

The eight tackles were one shy of matching his career best of nine, which came in the second game of his rookie 2017 season. Hilton also recovered a fumble following a Bud Dupree sack of Drew Lock -- the first of seven by the Steelers -- with the other six coming against backup Jeff Driskel. Overall, the Pittsburgh defense was credited with 19 quarterback hits.

Steelers' Mike Hilton: Inks tender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilton signed his second-round contract tender with the Steelers on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Hilton is now locked in with Pittsburgh for at least the 2020 campaign, though he's reportedly still looking to garner a long-term extension with the club. The 26-year-old played all 16 regular-season games for the Steelers last season (eight starts), accumulating 65 total tackles, 1.5 sacks and an interception. His 11 defended passes were a career-high mark.

Steelers' Mike Hilton: Receives second-round tender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Steelers are giving Hilton a second-round tender, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Hilton has missed just one game since being drafted by the Steelers in 2017. He started eight of 16 games last season and accumulated 65 tackles (44 solo) in the process. The 26-year-old also added 1.5 sacks and an interception.

Steelers' Mike Hilton: Rare sack in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilton had three tackles (two solo) including a half sack in Sunday's 28-10 loss to the Ravens.

The restricted free agent finishes the season with 65 tackles including 1.5 sacks. Hilton also had an interception, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery in 16 games. The Steelers will need to make salary cap room if they want to retain Hilton's services -- he is one of 19 free agents heading in to 2020.

Steelers' Mike Hilton: Leads team in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilton totaled eight tackles (five solo) in Pittsburgh's 16-10 loss Sunday.

This was arguably Hilton's best game but still offered little fantasy value outside of IDP leagues that recognize tackles. The loss now means that the Steelers need help to make the playoffs and must also win against the Ravens in Week 17.

Steelers' Mike Hilton: Records first sack of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilton totaled six tackles (all solo) including a sack in Sunday's 26-24 win over the Colts.

Hilton had been relatively quiet on defense the past few games, but his season-high six tackles put him on pace to match his career-best 64 tackles from his rookie season in 2017, while the sack was his first of the year. Since dropping the first three games this season and allowing opponents to score an average of more than 28 points per game, the defense has stepped up, and Pittsburgh has won four of the last five games, holding the opposition to an average of less than 17 points per game. Week 10 presents a challenge against a Rams offense that scores nearly 27 points per game.

Steelers' Mike Hilton: No limitations in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Hilton appears back to full health coming off Pittsburgh's bye week. With Steven Nelson and Joe Haden both also healthy, Hilton is set to play a reserve role versus the Dolphins on Monday.

Steelers' Mike Hilton: Dealing with calf injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilton is still recovering from a calf injury sustained during Week 6, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Hilton apparently sustained the injury during the latter stages of the win over the Chargers, and he's still managing the injury after the bye week. Coach Mike Tomlin indicated Steven Nelson (groin) is nearing his return, which could be especially important should Hilton be unable to play Monday against the Dolphins.

Steelers' Mike Hilton: Ready for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilton (foot) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Chargers, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.

The 25-year-old was added to the injury report Thursday as a limited participant, but he practiced fully Friday to avoid the questionable tag. Hilton could see increased defensive reps Sunday if Steven Nelson (groin) is unable to suit up.

Steelers' Mike Hilton: Added to injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilton was limited in Thursday's practice due to a foot injury, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.

Hilton wasn't listed on the injury report Wednesday, so his foot issue appears to be a new development. It's encouraging that he wasn't held out of Thursday's session entirely, but it remains to be seen whether his status for Week 6 is in any jeopardy. The extent of Hilton's participation in Friday's practice will shine some light on the matter.

Steelers' Mike Hilton: Ends drought with interception
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilton recorded four tackles (all solo) and an interception in Sunday's 26-23 overtime loss to the Ravens.

Hilton earned his first interception this season -- and his first in his last 17 games dating back to last season -- grabbing a Lamar Jackson pass intended for Seth Roberts. While Hilton has struggled to do much when on the field, the Pittsburgh defense is tied for the league lead with 12 takeaways this season.

Steelers' Mike Hilton: Tendered to contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Steelers tendered Hilton to a one-year contract Thursday, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Hilton was an exclusive-rights free agent and the Steelers' act of tendering him to a contract effectively puts him under Pittsburgh control for 2019. The Ole Miss product will look to compete for a rotational role at cornerback this offseason.

Steelers' Mike Hilton: Quiet finish to season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

The second-year defensive back experienced a slight decline over his rookie year, but still finished the 2018 season with 57 tackles -- including one sack -- adding two fumble recoveries and one interception in 15 games. Hilton is an exclusive restricted free agent and his play the past two years should merit consideration from the Pittsburgh front office for him to be re-signed.

Steelers' Mike Hilton: Leads team in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilton had a team-high six tackles (all solo) during Sunday's 31-28 loss to New Orleans.

The second-year defensive back has put together a string of four solid games during which he has recorded 27 tackles and a sack. He'll look to keep the momentum going in Week 17 against the Bengals, whom the Steelers defeated 28-21 earlier this season.

Steelers' Mike Hilton: Another solid effort in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilton recorded seven tackles (five solo) during Sunday's 17-10 win over New England.

The win snapped a three-game losing streak for Pittsburgh, allowing them to retain their divisional lead over Baltimore. Despite never trailing, the win wasn't assured until the defense ended Tom Brady's comeback attempt in the final minute of the game. The Steelers face the Saints in Week 16.

Steelers' Mike Hilton: Best game this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilton logged a team-high eight tackles (six solo), including a sack, and also recovered a fumble during Sunday's 24-21 loss to Oakland.

The sack was Hilton's first this season, and his eight tackles were one shy of matching his single-game high. It still wasn't enough to avoid extending Pittsburgh's losing streak to three games. Week 15 won't be any easier against New England, a team the Steelers last defeated in 2011.

Steelers' Mike Hilton: Practices Thursaday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilton (elbow) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Hilton did not suit up during Pittsburgh's Week 4 loss to Baltimore, but he now appears fully recovered from a hyperextended elbow. The cornerback seems to be trending towards playing against the Falcons on Sunday.

Steelers' Mike Hilton: To practice this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilton (elbow) is expected to practice this week, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Hilton was inactive Sunday against the Ravens after hyperextending his elbow in Week 3. Though he's expected to practice this week, his status for Sunday's matchup with the Falcons remains up in the air.

Steelers' Mike Hilton: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilton (elbow) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Hilton was sidelined during Friday's practice, so the backup cornerback's lack of availability is no surprise. The 24-year-old's injury should not require an extensive recovery, and Hilton will attempt to suit up for the Steelers in Week 5.

September 28, 2018 04:08 PM
Steelers' Mike Hilton: Doubtful for Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilton (elbow) is doubtful to play in Sunday's game gainst the Ravens, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Hilton, who hyperextended his elbow in last Monday's game against Tampa Bay, missed practice Friday and is unlikely to suit up this weekend. His absence will open up snaps for both Cameron Sutton and Coty Sensabaugh.
