Steelers' Xavier Grimble: Inching toward a return to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimble (wrist) is expected to return to practice this week and has a chance to play in Sunday's divisional showdown against the Browns, Ray Fittipaldo of The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

There's no official word on Grimble's availability for Week 1 yet, but a return to the practice field is an encouraging development for his chances of playing. Still considered to be the third option at tight end behind Vance McDonald and Jesse James, Grimble holds minimal fantasy value to open the season.

Steelers' Xavier Grimble: Goes under knife
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimble underwent surgery on his thumb/wrist and may be ready for Week 1 but will likely miss the rest of the preseason, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

Grimble will be cutting it close to being ready for the season opener Sept. 9 against the Browns. He'll be the No. 3 TE behind Vance McDonald (foot) and Jesse James when he returns. In that role, Grimble's had just 16 receptions for 150 yards and three touchdowns over his first two seasons in the league.

Steelers' Xavier Grimble: Latches on for another year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimble signed a one-year contract extension with the Steelers on Monday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Grimble snagged just five receptions for 32 yards and one touchdown in 2017, and he was used mainly for his run-blocking abilities. As long as Jesse James and Vance McDonald are ahead of him in the depth chart, Grimble isn't expected to produce much more than that. This contract will take Grimble through the 2018 season.

Steelers' Xavier Grimble: Quiet finish to even quieter season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimble caught one pass (on two targets) for two yards in Sunday's 28-24 win over the Browns, finishing the 2017 season with five catches (on 10 targets) for 32 yards and one touchdown in 15 games.

There just doesn't seem to be enough balls to go around with all the weapons on Pittsburgh's offense, so when you're the third tight end on the depth chart expectations shouldn't be too high. Grimble is an exclusive-rights free agent, so his future remains to be seen.

Steelers' Xavier Grimble: Scores first TD this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimble caught his lone target for a one-yard touchdown in Pittsburgh's 31-28 win over Green Bay on Sunday night.

The good news: Grimble has caught every pass thrown to him this season. The bad news: His reception against the Packers was just his second target in the nine games he has played. Entering training camp, Grimble might've had a chance to challenge Jesse James, even after the signing of Vance McDonald. Unfortunately for all three, the tight end position has been an afterthought in the offense, totaling just 35 receptions, compared to 61 catches by running backs and 155 by wide receivers.
