Steelers' Martavis Bryant: Misses practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant (undisclosed) missed practice Wednesday but is tentatively expected to return Thursday, Jeremy Fowler reports.

While the undisclosed injury apparently isn't serious, it could still keep Bryant out of Saturday's preseason game against the Colts if he doesn't return to practice Thursday. Given that he's only been with the team for two weeks following an absence of more than a year, the Steelers might take a slightly more aggressive approach than they typically would with a star player in the preseason. Bryant caught two of his three targets for 20 yards in Sunday's preseason game against Atlanta, making his first NFL appearance since January 2016. He's locked in as the team's No. 2 wide receiver, assuming he meets all the conditions for the league to fully reinstate him prior to Week 1.

Steelers' Le'Veon Bell: Plans to report Sept. 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell tweeted that he will report to the Steelers on Sept. 1, giving him a little over a week to prepare for the regular-season opener against Cleveland on Sept. 10, NFL.com's Edward Lewis reports.

Kansas City's Eric Berry missed the entire preseason in a similar situation last year, but he at least returned to his team before its final exhibition contest, which allowed for two weeks of preparation. Bell, on the other hand, seemingly doesn't plan to sign his franchise tender in time to join practice before Pittsburgh's preseason finale next Thursday. Given that teams typically get at least two days off before they start Week 1 preparation, Bell essentially will have only five or six days of practice before he suits up for the opener. It's a bit of a concern, but not nearly enough to remove him from the elite tier of running backs. He's been working out on his own in Florida, presumably staying in tip-top shape for the start of the season. His groin surgery from March isn't believed to be a concern.

Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger: Expects to play Saturday versus Colts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roethlisberger (ankle) plans to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Colts, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Roethlisberger has been hindered by a minor ankle injury since the beginning of August, but he's slated to make his preseason debut on Saturday. The Steelers' offense still won't be at full strength during their third preseason tilt, however, while running back Le'Veon Bell (groin) remains away from the team. Backup quarterback Landry Jones (abdomen) figures to return from his injury Saturday as well, and rookie Joshua Dobbs will also continue to provide depth behind Roethlisberger.

Steelers' Le'Veon Bell: Targeting Sept. 1 return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (groin) indicated on his Twitter account that he is planning to report to training camp Sept. 1.

Bell hasn't yet reported to training camp as he's sought a long-term contract with the Steelers, but it appears as though his holdout is nearing an end. A return date next Friday would be the day after the Steelers' fourth and final preseason game, ensuring Bell doesn't see any exhibition snaps. Barring he and the Steelers finally coming to terms on a contract, Bell will have to sign his $12.12 million franchise tender.

Steelers' Ryan Shazier: DNP in Week 2 of preseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shazier (hamstring) was sidelined for the Steelers preseason win over the Falcons on Sunday, Dale Lolley of the Observer-Reporter reports.

Shazier returned to practice on a limited-basis last week, and it is no surprise that the Steelers opted to hold him out of the exhibition contest. His recovery is seemingly on track at this point, but it is unclear if the team will continue to air on the side of caution as preseason progresses or if they will give him some snaps. Barring any setbacks, he will presumably be starting at inside linebacker in Week 1.
