Roosevelt Nix: Let go by Indy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nix was released by the Colts on Monday.

Nix spent five seasons with the Steelers and played in 60 games (nine starts) before joining the Colts this offseason. He was primarily used as a blocker, as he accumulated just four yards and one touchdown on four carries to go along with 12 receptions for 69 yards and a touchdown. However, he also contributed on special teams, as he recorded 34 tackles.The veteran is now set to look for a change of scenery, as the Colts are going in a different direction.

Colts' Roosevelt Nix: Set for usual role with Indy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nix (knee) will serve as a run blocker and special-teams player for the Colts, Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan reports.

It won't be much of a change for Nix after he garnered just four carries and 12 receptions in 60 games for Pittsburgh over the past five years. The 28-year-old should again have a heavy presence on special teams (300-plus snaps in 2017 and 2018) after missing most of last season with a knee injury.

Colts' Roosevelt Nix: Joining Indy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nix (knee) is expected to sign with the Colts on a one-year deal, Jordan Schultz of ESPN reports.

Though not necessarily an offensive presence, Nix is an exceptionally good blocker. The 28-year-old played five seasons as the Steelers' starting fullback, during which he earned one Pro Bowl nod. The veteran is also widely regarded as a special teams menace, compiling close to a dozen or more tackles each of the past three seasons. Nix could be a significant boost to the team's rushing attack, namely aiding incumbent running back Marlon Mack in obvious rushing scenarios. Nix missed all but three games in 2019 with a knee injury, but is reportedly on track for the start of the season.

Roosevelt Nix: Let go by Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Steelers released Nix (knee) on Wednesday.

Nix is recovering from a knee injury which caused him to spend all but three games of the 2019 season on injured reserve. The Steelers telegraphed NIx's release one day earlier, when they agreed to a three-year deal with another fullback in Derek Watt.

Steelers' Roosevelt Nix: Two touches in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nix (knee) finished the season on injured reserve having played just 35 offensive snaps.

After playing in all 16 games each of the past two seasons, Nix suffered a knee injury that limited him to just three games in 2019, finishing with two receptions (on three targets) for four yards. With just four carries for four yards and a touchdown and 12 catches for 69 yards and another score over his five-year career, Nix is primarily valued for his blocking abilities. If healthy, he will resume that role in 2020, as he has two years remaining on his contract.

Steelers' Roosevelt Nix: Designated for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Steelers announced Thursday that Nix (knee) has been designated for a return from injured reserve.

Nix was placed on IR in mid-November due to a knee injury. He'll likely return to practice Thursday, but he won't be eligible to play for another two weeks. With that in mind, the fullback isn't available to play until at least the divisional round of the postseason, should the Steelers make the playoffs and advance that far.

Steelers' Roosevelt Nix: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Steelers placed Nix (knee) on injured reserve Thursday, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.

Nix appeared in just three contests this season due to a lingering knee injury. He contributed as a blocker and special teams asset. With Nix done for the season, the Steelers no longer have a healthy fullback on the active roster.

Steelers' Roosevelt Nix: Will miss seventh game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nix (knee) is ruled out for Thursday's matchup against the Browns, Missi Matthews of the Steelers' official site reports.

Nix's absence may not concern fantasy gamers, but the Steelers will need to adjust their gameplan as they play without a fullback for a second consecutive week. James Conner is set up to be the lead back after missing Week 10 with a shoulder issue.

November 11, 2019 12:32 PM
Steelers' Roosevelt Nix: Status uncertain for TNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Mike Tomlin said Monday that he isn't optimistic about the chances of Nix (knee) suiting up against the Browns on Thursday, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.

Nix missed Sunday's win over the Rams and wasn't able to practice in any capacity last week. He's facing a quick turnaround for Thursday's divisional match against the Browns. Nix plays a key role in Pittsburgh's offense as a blocker, and he also serves as a core special-teams player.

Steelers' Roosevelt Nix: Won't face Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nix (knee) is ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Rams, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Nix managed to play through his lingering knee injury during Pittsburgh's last two contests, but he wasn't able to practice in any capacity this week and won't suit up Sunday. With Nix unavailable as a blocker and James Conner (knee) and Benny Snell (knee) both ruled out, the Steelers' rushing attack could struggle versus Los Angeles.

Steelers' Roosevelt Nix: Active Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nix (knee) is active for Sunday's contest against the Colts, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Nix had his reps capped during Friday's practice due to a lingering knee injury, but it won't stop him from taking the field Week 9. The fullback stands to play his usual role as a blocker and special-teams contributor versus the Colts on Sunday.

Steelers' Roosevelt Nix: Officially listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nix (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts, Brian Batko of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Nix was limited in Friday's practice due to a knee injury. He suited up for Monday's contest against the Dolphins but had missed the previous five games due to a lingering knee issue. Nix is a key special-teams player for the Steelers, and he also contributes as a blocker on offense.

Steelers' Roosevelt Nix: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nix was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Nix is officially practicing without limitations coming off Pittsburgh's bye. The starting fullback has been sidelined since Week 1 due to a knee issue, but he's on track to retake the field versus Miami on Monday.

Steelers' Roosevelt Nix: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nix (knee) was a full participant at Monday's practice, Ray Fittipaldo of the Post Gazette reports.

Nix has been sidelined since injuring his knee in the Steelers' season opening loss to the Patriots. Typically a core special teams player, he could see an increase in usage at full back with the offense missing Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) for the remainder of the season. More clarity will be brought to his status when the Steelers release their first injury report on Thursday.

Steelers' Roosevelt Nix: Not returning Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nix (knee) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.

Nix hasn't seen the field since suffering the knee injury in the season opener against the Patriots. The 27-year-old reportedly had a chance to make his return for Week 6, but he ended up not taking the practice field.

Steelers' Roosevelt Nix: May return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nix (knee) has a chance to return for Sunday's game versus the Chargers, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

The Chargers allowed just over 200 rushing yards to the Broncos in Week 5, so Nix could contribute to a similar effort by paving the way for James Conner and Benny Snell since Jaylen Samuels (knee) is out. He may still take it easy throughout practice, but the best-case scenario is that he'll be a full participant by Friday.

Steelers' Roosevelt Nix: Out for fourth straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nix (knee) is ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Ravens, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.

Nix didn't practice at all this week ahead of his fourth straight missed game. The Steelers used James Conner and Jaylen Samuels heavily last week without Nix, and they may use a similar approach against the Ravens.

Steelers' Roosevelt Nix: Sitting out MNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nix (knee) won't play in Monday's game versus the Bengals.

Nix hasn't played since Week 1. His absence doesn't directly affect the fantasy realm, but it could shorten the playbook for James Conner and Jaylen Samuels. Still, the Bengals' defense has allowed the second-most rushing yards per game (168.7) this year so it shouldn't be a dramatic effect.

September 25, 2019 01:52 PM
Steelers' Roosevelt Nix: Won't play Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Mike Tomlin said Wednesday that Nix (knee) won't play Week 4, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Nix will miss a third consecutive contest due to his knee injury. It appears that the Steelers will proceed without a fullback once again as the team prepares to face off against the Bengals on Monday.

September 17, 2019 08:48 PM
Steelers' Roosevelt Nix: Will sit Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nix (knee) will sit out of Sunday's matchup with the 49ers, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

This doesn't come as a surprise for Nix, who's slated to miss at least a couple of weeks with this knee injury. The 27-year-old originally sustained the injury in the Steelers' season opener against New England. Nix is the only fullback on Pittsburgh's roster, and it doesn't seem like the team will bring in another, as it decided to go without a fullback for the game against Seattle in Week 2.
