  • Steelers' Diontae Johnson: Idle for another practice

    Johnson (knee) was a non-participant in Thursday's practice, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.

    With two missed practices to begin Week 3 prep, Johnson is seemingly trending in the wrong direction ahead of Sunday's game against the Bengals. The Steelers haven't officially ruled Johnson out for the contest, but he'll most likely be headed for an inactive status if he fails to log any practice activity Friday. Should Johnson sit out Sunday, James Washington would likely be the top candidate to see added snaps alongside starting receivers JuJu Smith-Schuster and Chase Claypool.

  • Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Back at practice

    Roethlisberger (left pectoral) returned to a limited practice Thursday, Chris Adamski of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

    Roethlisberger's return to practice, albeit in a limited capacity, bodes well for his chances of suiting up for Sunday's game against the Bengals. For his part, the QB noted Wednesday that he plans to do "everything he can" to be available this weekend, Brooke Pryor of ESPN reports. Friday's final injury report of the week will reveal whether or not Roethlisberger (whose top backup is Mason Rudolph) will approach Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff carrying a Week 3 injury designation.

  • Steelers' Joe Haden: Practicing in full Thursday

    Haden (groin) returned to full practice Thursday, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.

    Haden's poised to make his return against the Bengals in Week 3 after missing last week's loss to the Raiders. The veteran cornerback will have his hands full against Cincinnati's talented young receiving corps, led by Tee Higgins and Ja'Marr Chase on the outside.

  • Steelers' Devin Bush: Practices without restrictions

    Bush (groin) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

    Bush was held out Week 2 due to a groin injury, but he now looks back to full health and on track for Sunday's divisional matchup against the Bengals. However, fellow linebacker T.J. Watt (groin) was limited Wednesday and is looking iffy for Week 3.

  • Steelers' T.J. Watt: Limited in practice

    Watt (groin) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

    Watt was forced out of Pittsburgh's matchup against the Raiders in Week 2 early due to a groin strain, and he wasn't able to retake the field, but it appears that he still has a shot to suit up Week 3. The star linebacker will have two more chances to ramp up his practice activity before Sunday's divisional clash against the Bengals.

  • Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Misses practice

    Roethlisberger (pectoral) didn't practice Wednesday.

    The Steelers expect Roethlisberger to play in Sunday's game against the Bengals, though he'll presumably be dealing with pain and discomfort in his left pectoral. It's unclear if that will impact his arm strength or accuracy, and the Steelers likely will limit his workload even if he returns to practice Thursday and/or Friday. Roethlisberger said Wednesday that he'll do "everything he can" to play in Sunday's game, adding that he doesn't yet know if the injury will impact his throwing motion, per Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com.

  • Steelers' Diontae Johnson: Not practicing

    Johnson (knee) didn't practice Wednesday.

    After Johnson was injured on the final play of last week's loss to the Raiders, head coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that the wideout is "looking better, not to be confused with great," per Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com. Johnson's status thus appears shaky for Sunday's game against the Bengals, with Thursday and Friday representing his remaining two chances to return to the practice field. James Washington should step up as the No. 3 receiver if Johnson is ruled out this week, with the Steelers potentially using more multi-tight end looks as well.

  • Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Should be able to play

    The Steelers expect Roethlisberger (pectoral) to play in Sunday's game against the Bengals, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    While he's expected to play through the injury to his left pectoral, Roethlisberger likely will be limited in practice to start the week. Steelers wideout Diontae Johnson (knee) is also expected to appear on Wednesday's injury report, with his status for Week 3 in serious question.
