by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilbert is considered questionable to return to Monday's game against the Bengals due to an ankle injury, Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The severity of Gilbert's injury is unknown at his time. Should he ultimately not be able to return, look for Tegray Scales to see some more snaps backing up Marcus Allen and Avery Williamson at linebacker.

Steelers' Ulysees Gilbert: Activated from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilbert (back) was activated from injured reserve Saturday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Gilbert is returning to the lineup at an optimal time, as Robert Spillane (knee) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, opening up a starting inside linebacker job. Avery Williamson appears to be the favorite for the gig, but Gilbert is certainly a contender. His first chance to claim that role is Sunday's matchup against the Bills.

Steelers' Ulysees Gilbert: Practice window opens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilbert (back) was designated to return from injured reserve Wednesday, Curt Popejoy of USA Today reports.

Gilbert returned to practice Wednesday, opening his 21-day window to be activated from IR. The 23-year-old linebacker played mainly on special teams through his only two games this season, but he'd bolster the team's depth at the second level, where it has already lost Devin Bush and Bud Dupree for the season due to torn ACLs.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Steelers' Ulysees Gilbert: Unavailable against Ravens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilbert (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Ravens, Chris Adamski of the Tribune-Review reports.

Gilbert sat out practice Thursday and Friday, so he'll predictably be sidelined for Sunday's AFC North showdown. It's tough to tell when Gilbert picked up this injury, but he did finish the 2019 season on IR. He'll aim to return next week against the Cowboys.

Steelers' Ulysees Gilbert: Chance to earn backup job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilbert (back) should have the opportunity to earn the backup job at inside linebacker in training camp, Joe Rutter of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

The 2019 sixth-round pick totaled only five tackles in seven games before being shut down with a back injury, but the offseason departures of Mark Barron and Tyler Matakevich create an opening on the depth chart. Gilbert likely will be in competition with Robert Spillane, John Houston and Leo Lewis.

Steelers' Ulysees Gilbert: Forgettable rookie season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilbert (back) finished the season on injured reserve.

A back injury limited the rookie linebacker to just five tackles in seven games playing exclusively on special teams in 2019. Gilbert is under contract until 2023 and will likely play a similar role in 2020 if healthy.

Steelers' Ulysees Gilbert: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilbert (back) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Teresa Varley of reports.

Gilbert, who was selected by the Steelers in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, was bothered by a nagging back injury in recent weeks. The issue forced him to miss a Week 8 win over the Dolphins, though he was able to return and log 15 snaps on special teams Sunday. In a corresponding roster move, Pittsburgh promoted fellow inside linebacker Robert Spillane from the practice squad with Gilbert on his way to IR.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Steelers' Ulysees Gilbert: Won't play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilbert (back) is inactive for Monday's game against Miami, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Gilbert popped up on the injury report late in the week Saturday and won't be able to take the field Monday. His absence likely won't effect the defense, however, and Jayrone Elliott could be in line to see an uptick in special teams snaps for the contest.

Steelers' Ulysees Gilbert: Surfaces late on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilbert (back) was a limited participant during Saturday's practice.

Gilbert's injury didn't show up until Saturday, which is usually a negative sign for a player's ability to suit up at game time. Gilbert mainly works on special teams, and his status will come down to 90 minutes before Monday's 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff.

Steelers' Ulysees Gilbert: Makes impact on D
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilbert totaled three tackles (two solo), including 1.5 sacks in the Steelers' 30-28 preseason win over the Buccaneers on Friday.

The sixth-round draft pick recorded his sacks in the fourth quarter, along with a big interception of a two-point conversion attempt to help preserve the win. Pittsburgh has depth at the linebacker position but games like this may help Gilbert's case to make the team and give him opportunities beyond just special teams.

Steelers' Ulysees Gilbert: Drafted by Steelers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Steelers selected Gilbert in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 207th overall.

Where Gilbert slots into the linebacking corps may be a point of contention after the Akron product never missed a game throughout his four-year collegiate career. Gilbert has the speed to be a sideline-to-sideline linebacker, but lacks the prototypical size to be a pure edge rusher. The Steelers will likely wind up utilizing Gilbert as a special teams ace early on, particularly with recent additions such as Mark Barron and Devin Bush clogging up most of the snaps at inside linebacker.
