Position Listing
James Conner
News
Conner rushed 19 times for 111 yards and two touchdowns while catching four of seven targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 28-21 win over the Bengals.

Conner scored a pair of one-yard touchdowns in the second quarter. He came less than a yard short of the goal line on a 25-yard run in the third and was subsequently stuffed on two attempts, so Pittsburgh was forced to settle for a field goal. With Le'Veon Bell due back during Pittsburgh's Week 7 bye, questions loom over Conner's workload moving forward. Chances are his role will be limited if Bell's healthy.

Lavon Hooks
News
Hooks signed a contract with the Steelers on Monday.

Hooks, an undrafted player out of Ole Miss entering his third season in the league, participated in the Steelers' training camp last summer but didn't make it past the final roster cuts. He likely won't compete for anything more than a depth role along the defensive line.

Ryan Shazier
News
Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert announced Wednesday that Shazier (spine) won't play during the 2018 season, Mark Kaboly of The Athletic Pittsburgh reports.

While Shazier remains hopeful to resume his career after suffering a serious spinal injury Dec. 4 that required surgery two days later, the linebacker hasn't made enough progress in his recovery at this point for the Steelers to realistically consider activating him in 2018. Colbert indicated that Shazier, who is due $8.72 million next season after the Steelers exercised his fifth-year team option last April, will be around the organization in some capacity even while he remains unavailable to play. In addition to continuing his rehab under the supervision of team doctors, look for Shazier to act as a de facto assistant coach for the Steelers and provide an uplifting presence in the locker room.

Injury
Spine - Physically Unable to Perform
Antonio Brown
News
Brown caught five of six targets for 105 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 28-21 win over the Bengals.

Brown was quiet for most of the game, but he won it by taking a slant 31 yards to the house with his team down 21-20 and 10 seconds remaining. The star wide receiver actually ranked fifth on the Steelers in targets, but his explosiveness allows Brown to excel even during dips in workload. Pittsburgh will be on bye in Week 7, at which time star running back Le'Veon Bell is scheduled to return to the team.

Jon Bostic
News
Bostic recorded six tackles (all solo) including a sack in Monday's 30-27 win over the Buccaneers.

In just his third game as a Steeler, Bostic has already matched his career high with two sacks and leads the team with 21 tackles. The defense has 11 sacks through three games, second only to Chicago and is on pace for 58 on the year. They'll look to add to that total against Baltimore in Week 4.

Herb Waters
News
Waters was waived by the Packers on Monday, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

Waters didn't make the cut in a Green Bay secondary that's suddenly flush with talent at the cornerback position. The Miami product will become an unrestricted free agent if he passes through waivers unclaimed.

Anthony Chickillo
News
Chickillo had one tackle (solo) for a sack in Monday's 30-27 win over the Buccaneers.

He may not have seen much action, playing just 24 defensive snaps, but his nine-yard sack of Ryan Fitzpatrick came on third down from the Pittsburgh 27-yard line, knocking Tampa Bay out of field goal range and forcing a pooch punt. Chickillo's value is primarily on special teams, although he now has 6.5 sacks in his last 34 games.

Marcus Gilbert
News
Gilbert (hamstring) was a full participant at practice Wednesday, Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Gilbert was inactive for Monday's game against Tampa Bay after suffering a hamstring injury in Week 2. The 30-year-old should reclaim starting duties at right tackle for Pittsburgh.

L.J. Fort
News
Fort (ankle) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Fort did not practice this week and was listed as doubtful so this was to be expected. Matthew Thomas could see increased snaps on special teams and serve as Jon Bostic's backup at inside linebacker.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for Week 8 vs. Cleveland
Brandon Johnson
Injury
Bud Dupree
News
Dupree recorded one tackle (solo) for a sack during Sunday's 26-14 loss to the Ravens.

The sack, which came just before halftime, was the only highlight in an otherwise quiet game for Dupree. He now has three sacks through four games and is tied with T.J. Watt for the team lead. The Pittsburgh defense has the fourth-most sacks (13) in the NFL, but it's still allowing an average of 29 points per game this season.

Jordan Berry
News
Berry signed a one-year contract with Pittsburgh on Thursday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Berry has been with Pittsburgh since 2015, averaging 43.8 yards per punt during his tenure. He'll figure to be the team's punter throughout the 2018 campaign.

Stevan Ridley
News
Ridley ran for eight yards on five carries during Sunday's 41-17 win over the Falcons.

On a day when the Steelers had a balanced offensive game plan, with 29 rushes and 29 pass attempts, Ridley provided little more than a breather for James Conner, who toted the rock 21 times. If Le'Veon Bell returns anytime this season, Pittsburgh will likely still find a way to involve Conner in the offense, leaving nothing but scraps for Ridley.

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

Canaday is now signed through the 2018 season to continue being the Steelers' long snapper. Kicker Chris Boswell hit 35 of 38 field goals and 37 of 39 extra points this season with Canaday snapping the ball.

Trey Edmunds
News
The Steelers signed Edmunds to their practice squad Wednesday.

An undrafted rookie out of Maryland in 2017, Edmund was picked up by the Steelers shortly after being waived by the Saints. Edmund received praise for his blocking and versatility throughout the offseason in New Orleans, and provides Pittsburgh with additional depth behind Le'Veon Bell, James Conner and Jaylen Samuels.

Cortez Allen
News
Allen has been released by the Steelers.

Allen missed all of last season after suffering a knee injury in Week 1, but his release also comes after he signed a lucrative four-year extension with Pittsburgh in 2014. Now a free agent, Allen's absence further ensures the Steelers will address the cornerback position through the draft.

Injury
Vance McDonald
News
McDonald caught seven of eight targets for 68 yards in Sunday's 28-21 win over the Bengals.

McDonald was a force in this one, using his big frame to gain extra yards on almost every catch. He's emerging as the go-to tight end in Pittsburgh despite Jesse James' hot start to the season. Pittsburgh will be on bye in Week 7.

Mason Rudolph
News
Rudolph is inactive for Sunday's game against Cleveland due to coach's decision, Teresa Varley of the Steeler's official site reports.

Rudolph lost the battle for the backup slot to Joshua Dobbs, and the team has no need to suit up three quarterbacks in Week 1. Rudolph will likely suit up if the team faces injuries and doesn't need to scratch healthy players.

Brian Allen
No Updates
Farrington Huguenin
No Updates
Stephon Tuitt
News
Tuitt totaled five tackles (one solo) including a sack during Sunday's 28-21 win over Cincinnati.

Like the rest of the Pittsburgh defense, Tuitt has gotten off to a slow start but is beginning to turn things around. The defense is also starting to settle in and has allowed opposing teams an average of 19 points per game the past two weeks, after yielding an average of 29 points in their first four games this season. They have a bye in Week 7 before hosting Cleveland, whom they tied 21-21 in Week 1.

David DeCastro
News
DeCastro (hand) was a full practice participant Wednesday, Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

DeCastro was inactive the last two games after fracturing his hand Week 1 against the Browns. The 28-year-old appears on track to return to his starting duties at right guard for the Steelers.

Coty Sensabaugh
News
Sensabaugh was inactive (coach's decision) for Sunday's win over the Browns, finishing the 2017 season with 22 tackles (19 solo) and an interception in 14 games.

Sensabaugh split his time between defense and special teams this season, although he didn't see his first action on defense until Week 10 when Joe Haden suffered a fractured leg that caused him to miss five games. Sensabaugh will get an extra week to rest before Pittsburgh's Week 19 AFC divisional round game.

Joseph Cheek
News
Cheek (foot) reverted to injured reserve Sunday.

Cheek went unclaimed after being waived/injured by the Steelers on Saturday, so he'll revert to IR for the 2018 season after suffering a foot injury during the team's preseason finale.

Injury
Foot - Injured Reserve
Ramon Foster
News
Foster (knee) was a full participant at Thursday's practice.

Foster sustained the injury in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs but ultimately wasn't forced to miss any practice time. The 32-year-old should be at his post at starting right guard for the Steelers on Monday.

Tyler Matakevich
News
Matakevich (shoulder) is healthy and now the frontrunner to be starting ILB for the Steelers after OTAs, ESPN.com reports.

The Steelers signed Jon Bostic, who had 97 tackles (57 solo) for the Colts last season, but Matakevich stole the show during offseason workouts. Matakevich played with an edge while showing off his football instincts, and that combination makes him the likely replacement for Ryan Shazier (spine). The 2016 seventh-round pick has never played more than 60 defensive snaps in a season, however, so he'll need a solid preseason to solidify his role.

Cameron Sutton
News
Sutton (hamstring) returned to practice Tuesday, Steelers Director of Communications Burt Lauten reports.

Sutton was placed on injured reserve in early September after suffering a hamstring injury in the Steelers' final preseason game. The team will now have three weeks to decide if it wants Sutton to be one of its two players it can active off of IR. If the Steelers elect not to, Sutton will remain on injured reserve for the remainder of the season.

Tevin Jones
News
Jones was waived by the Steelers on Saturday.

Jones went unclaimed on waivers and was signed to the Steelers' practice squad. The team kept seven wide receivers on their 53-man roster.

Roosevelt Nix-Jones
News
The Steelers re-signed Nix to a new four-year deal Saturday.

Nix, who was named to the 2018 Pro Bowl, will no longer have to worry about his immediate future. The fullback has logged 45 career games (nine starts) with the Steelers. He logged just one rushing and one receiving touchdown this past season, but his primary role is leading the way for star running back Le'Veon Bell.

Malik Golden
News
Golden (knee) reverted to injured reserve Sunday.

Golden was carted off the field during the Steelers' preseason finale with what appeared to be a serious leg injury. He went unclaimed after being waived/injured Saturday and will spend his 2018 campaign on IR.

Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Jay Rome
Injury
Keion Adams
No Updates
Morgan Burnett
News
Burnett (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against the Bengals.

Burnett didn't log a practice this week and hasn't played since Week 2 against the Chiefs. In the former Packer's absence, fellow safety Terrell Edmunds has gotten at least 70 defensive snaps per game. That volume is likely to continue with Burnett sidelined again.

Injury
Groin - Questionable for Week 8 vs. Cleveland
Mike Hilton
News
Hilton (elbow) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Hilton was sidelined during Friday's practice, so the backup cornerback's lack of availability is no surprise. The 24-year-old's injury should not require an extensive recovery, and Hilton will attempt to suit up for the Steelers in Week 5.

T.J. Watt
News
Watt led the defense with eight tackles (six solo) including three sacks during Sunday's 41-17 win over the Falcons.

The three sacks were Watt's first since the three he recorded in Week 1 against Cleveland to give him six on the season. He'll look to add to that total in Week 6 against Cincinnati and Andy Dalton, who has been sacked seven times in his past three games.

Justin Hunter
News
Hunter (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

The Steelers' decision to make Hunter a healthy inactive comes as a surprise after he played 51 of a total 84 offensive snaps in the team's Week 1 tie with the Browns, finishing with one reception for six yards on five targets. Hunter's unimpressive showing appears to have cost him the No. 3 wideout job, with rookie second-round pick James Washington ready to assume those duties in the home opener.

Joshua Dobbs
News
Dobbs will serve as the Steelers' backup quarterback Sunday against the Chiefs with regular starter Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) active for the contest, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Roethlisberger was withheld from practice Wednesday and Thursday while managing his injury, resulting in Dobbs logging extensive work with the first-team offense. While the back-to-back absences fueled speculation Roethlisberger might be at risk of sitting out the Week 2 contest, the veteran returned to full practice Friday to quell most of the concern about his status. Now that he's officially active, Dobbs will assume backup duties for the second straight week after beating out rookie Mason Rudolph and the since-released Landry Jones for those honors at the conclusion of the preseason.

Darrius Heyward-Bey
News
Heyward-Bey (ankle) will not play against the Bengals on Sunday.

Going into last week's matchup against the Falcons, Heyward-Bey was listed as doubtful but ultimately didn't play. The Maryland product was unable to practice in any capacity this week. Heyward-Bey will have the next two weeks to recover, as the Steelers have their bye in Week 7.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for Week 8 vs. Cleveland
Joe Haden
News
Haden was absent from the Steelers' injury report ahead of Monday's matchup with the Buccaneers, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

Haden was sidelined for last week's loss to the Chiefs, and his absence was certainly noticed as the Chiefs moved the ball with ease all afternoon. He was a full participant at practice throughout the week, so there is no surprise he will return Monday night. Barring any setbacks, look for the lockdown cornerback to take on his usual role.

Xavier Grimble
News
Grimble caught both his targets for 35 yards during Sunday's 28-21 win over Cincinnati.

The receptions give him just three this season, but he has already exceeded his yardage total for all of last season (32). Still, Grimble finds himself buried behind Vance McDonald and Jesse James on the depth chart as the Steelers head to a Week 7 bye.

JuJu Smith-Schuster
News
Smith-Schuster caught seven of 10 targets for 111 yards and converted a two-point conversion in Sunday's 28-21 win over the Bengals.

Smith-Schuster made a brilliant catch with the game tied 7-7 in the second quarter, turning what should have been an interception into a 29-yard gain down to the one-yard line. He led the Steelers in targets and receiving yards while tying tight end Vance McDonald for the team lead in catches. Antonio Brown scored the team's lone touchdown, however. Smith-Schuster and the rest of the Steelers will be on bye in Week 7.

Sean Davis
News
Davis logged one tackle during Saturday's preseason game against the Titans.

Davis started at free safety and showed no signs of the groin injury he dealt with early on in training camp. Having escaped the exhibition without any other injuries of note, Davis seems poised to enter the 2018 campaign in full health -- and not to mention very worthy of IDP consideration after logging 92 tackles and eight pass breakups in 16 games last year.

Tyson Alualu
News
Alualu (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Alualu received a doubtful designation Friday so this news was expected. He played 29 defensive snaps in Week 1 versus the Browns, and his absence will leave a large workload for starter Stephon Tuitt.

Ola Adeniyi
News
Adeniyi (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Adeniyi exited the Steelers' preseason finale due to a hamstring injury, which now appears set to potentially cost the linebacker his season. The Steelers will opt to hold onto the undrafted rookie out of Toledo in hopes of a healthy return next season.

Injury
Hamstring - Injured Reserve
Jesse James
News
James had five receptions for 26 yards during Sunday's 28-21 win over Cincinnati.

His seven targets were the most in a game this season and is averaging 16.1 yards per catch after averaging no better than 8.7 YPC in any of his previous seasons. Following a Week 7 bye, James will face a tough Cleveland defense that has held opposing tight ends to an average of three catches for 29 yards and no touchdowns in five out of six games this season. Keep in mind, however, that the Browns have faced several teams who don't actively seek out the position on offense.

Terrell Edmunds
News
Edmunds is expected to start at strong safety for Sunday's season opener against the Browns, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Edmunds was the Steelers' first-round pick in this year's draft and ended up making quite the impression during the preseason. With Edmunds now the expected starter, veteran defensive back Morgan Burnett will likely serve as his backup at strong safety.

Trey Griffey
News
Griffey was waived by the Steelers on Saturday.

Griffey went unclaimed on waivers and the Steelers were able to sign him to their practice squad as a result. The Arizona product lacks experience after failing to play a single down during his rookie campaign in 2017.

Javon Hargrave
News
Hargrave recorded five tackles (two solo), including a sack, during Sunday's 28-21 win over Cincinnati.

With two sacks in his last three games, Hargrave now has three sacks on the season, which is a personal best, and is on pace for eight on the year. Overall, this was a solid defensive effort for Pittsburgh despite forcing no turnovers. They are a minus two in takeaways through six games and have a bye in Week 7.

Nat Berhe
News
Berhe (pectoral) was placed on injured reserve by the Steelers on Tuesday.

Berhe originally exited Sunday's game against the Ravens and did not return due to the injury, which was later deemed to be a torn pectoral. The former San Diego State standout signed with the Steelers in the offseason as an unrestricted free agent and recorded three tackles in 2018. In a corresponding move, Pittsburgh promoted Brian Allen to its 53-man roster from the practice squad to add some depth to the secondary after the loss of Berhe.

Injury
Pectoral - Injured Reserve
Cameron Heyward
News
Heyward totaled three tackles (two solo) including one and a half sacks during Sunday's 41-17 win over the Falcons.

After notching 12 sacks last season, Heyward had gotten off to a slow start and had not recorded a sack since Week 1 against Cleveland. He'll look to keep the positive momentum going, having recorded four sacks in his last seven games against Week 6 opponent Cincinnati.

Vince Williams
News
Williams led the defense with seven tackles (six solo) including a sack during Sunday's 28-21 win over Cincinnati.

The Steelers had three sacks in the game including the first of the season for Williams, who had a career-high eight sacks last year. He also has 36 tackles to trail Jon Bostic by one for the team lead heading into a Week 7 bye.

Marcus Tucker
News
Tucker (ankle) worked out for the Texans on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Tucker -- who was cut by the Steelers on Sept. 8 -- didn't immediately sign a deal with the Texans. The 26-year-old wideout will continue to look for opportunities.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for Week 8 vs. Cleveland
Ryan Switzer
News
Switzer caught his lone target for seven yards during Sunday's 28-21 win over Cincinnati.

The second-year receiver now has 13 catches for 67 yards and a touchdown this season but just two catches for 12 yards over the past two games. He is still contributing on special teams and added 70 yards on four returns against the Bengals, ranking among the league leaders in kick and punt returns. He had 125 return yards in Week 1 against Cleveland, whom Pittsburgh will face after a Week 7 bye.

Bucky Hodges
News
Hodges was waived by the Steelers on Saturday.

The 2017 sixth-rounder went unclaimed on waivers and joined the Steelers' practice squad. He'll be a candidate for a promotion to the active roster if Vance McDonald (foot), Jesse James (back), or Xavier Grimble (wrist) suffer any setbacks.

Finney started at left guard during Saturday's preseason game against the Titans.

Finney seemed to be moving around well, which is significant since the offensive lineman dealt with a bruised quadriceps in practice earlier this month.

Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Ryan Malleck
News
The Steelers reverted Malleck (undisclosed) to injured reserve Saturday per the NFL Media official transaction log.

Malleck has struggled to find an NFL roster since going undrafted in 2015. He will now be sidelined for the remainder of the season unless he and the Steelers come to terms on an injury settlement.

Injury

Tyriq McCord
Injury
Artie Burns
News
Burns (toe) is active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Burns didn't appear on the Steelers' injury report until Friday, when he was listed as a limited participant in the team's final practice of the week due to the toe issue. The late setback resulted in him carrying a questionable designation into the weekend, but it looks like he'll be good to go after receiving treatment to address the matter.

Zach Banner
News
Banner signed a contract with the Steelers on Sunday, Mark Kaboly of The Athletic reports.

Banner was surprisingly waived by the Colts prior to the 2017 season after being selected in the fourth round of that year's draft. He then latched on with the Browns and ended up seeing action in eight games as a rookie. After being waived, Banner now joins Pittsburgh where he'll have to battle for a final roster spot throughout training camp.

Roethlisberger completed 32 of 46 passes for 369 yards and a touchdown while also passing for a two-point conversion in Sunday's 28-21 win over the Bengals.

After James Conner converted a pair of one-yard touchdowns in the first half, Roethlisberger finally recorded a passing score by hitting Antonio Brown on a 31-yard slant with 10 seconds left. Even before his game-winning toss to Brown, Roethlisberger had been racking up yardage and topped 300 for the fourth time in six games. He'll get to rest his 36-year-old bones in Week 7 with Pittsburgh on bye.

Chris Boswell
News
Boswell made both his field-goal attempts (21, 24) and converted both his extra-point attempts during Sunday's 28-21 win over Cincinnati.

This was only the second time in six games this season that Boswell did not miss a kick, and he'll have time to get his head right as the Steelers are on a bye in Week 7. They host Cleveland, whom they tied 21-21 in Week 1, in a game that Boswell was wide left on a 42-yard field-goal attempt with 1:44 remaining in overtime, which would have given Pittsburgh the win.

Jordan Dangerfield
News
Dangerfield signed a reserve/future contract with the Steelers on Monday, TribLive.com reports.

Dangerfield was waived an reached an injury settlement with the Steelers in early September as he battled an undisclosed injury. The 27-year-old totaled 16 tackles in 14 games with the Steelers in 2016, and also earned a pair of starts.

Maurkice Pouncey
News
Pouncey (hip) is not present on the Steelers' injury report Wednesday.

Pouncey sat out Week 17 as he nursed a hip injury, but Pittsburgh was likely just exercising caution as they geared up for the playoffs. The 28-year-old should return to his usual starting spot at center for Sunday's divisional round matchup with Jacksonville.

L.T. Walton
News
Walton had three tackles (all solo) in the Steelers' 27-24 overtime win on Sunday.

The ankle injury that forced Ricardo Mathews from the game resulted in increased defensive snaps for Walton, allowing him to have a personal-best three tackles against Cleveland. He finished with eight tackles (six solo) in 10 games this season.

Jake McGee
News
McGee (Achilles) will be placed on injured reserve Monday, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

McGee tore his Achilles in OTAs last week and could be sidelined around 6-to-9 months. Barring an injury settlement, he's likely stuck on IR through the end of the league year.

Achilles - Injured Reserve
Jerald Hawkins
News
Hawkins (quadriceps) will be placed on injured reserve Monday, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Hawkins tore a quadriceps muscle in practice last week and could be out of action for many months. The Steelers signed free agent offensive lineman Bryce Harris to take his place on the roster.

Keith Kelsey
News
Kelsey (pectoral) reverted to injured reserve Sunday.

Kelsey will spend his 2018 campaign on IR after suffering a pectoral injury during the Steelers' preseason finale, having also gone unclaimed after being waived/injured Saturday.

Pectoral - Injured Reserve
Alejandro Villanueva
News
Villanueva (illness) was absent Wednesday from the Steelers' injury report.

Villanueva missed some snaps in Sunday's victory over the Vikings while he was slowed down by heat-related issues. Now fully rested and hydrated, the veteran left tackle should resume his role protecting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's blind side in the Steelers' Week 3 tilt with the Bears.

Matt Feiler
News
The Steelers signed Feiler to a one-year contract extension Wednesday.

Feiler was set to become an exclusive rights free agent at the outset of free agency, but secured his spot in Pittsburgh for 2018. The 25-year-old earned his first NFL start in Week 17 as the Steelers geared up for the playoffs and is likely to serve in a reserve role again next season.

Dan McCullers-Sanders
News
McCullers re-signed to a one-year deal with the Steelers on Thursday, Joe Rutter of Triblive.com reports.

McCullers will remain in Pittsburgh, where he was drafted in the sixth-round of the 2014 draft. The nose tackle has been more of a depth lineman so far in his career, registering just one start in 42 career games. The Steelers now have all six defensive linemen who saw action last season under contract for the 2018 season as well.

James Washington
News
Washington failed to haul in either target thrown his way during Sunday's 41-17 win over Atlanta.

Washington drew some eyeballs after scoring in Week 2 against Kansas City but has done little else to remind fans of last season's Day 2 find, JuJu Smith-Schuster. Washington seems to have work to do getting on the same page with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger as he has reeled in just 38 percent of the 13 targets that have been thrown his way this season -- the worst conversion rate among Pittsburgh targets with more than one catch. Don't expect rival Cincinnati to make things easier on Sunday. The Bengals rank in the top half of the league in multiple pass-defense categories.

Eli Rogers
News
Rogers (knee, suspension) will start the regular season on the PUP list, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

This was always the most likely outcome given that Rogers suffered a torn ACL during last year's playoffs. He'll serve a one-game suspension while he's on the PUP list and will be eligible to return to action once the Steelers come out of a Week 7 bye. The 25-year-old slot receiver profiles as Pittsburgh's fourth or fifth option at wide receiver, but injuries could open up a role in the offense by the time he's ready to play in games.

Jaylen Samuels
News
Samuels had no touches during Sunday's 26-14 loss to the Ravens.

The rookie has been limited to special teams play this season and continues to wait for his chance on offense. James Conner has handled 92 percent of the carries by running backs through four games but has struggled lately and is averaging just 3.7 yards per rush, so Samuels may get an opportunity sooner rather than later.
