Position Listing
James Conner
Conner ran once for nine yards in Sunday's win over the Vikings.

Through two games, the rookie running back has provided little more than to give Le'Veon Bell a chance to catch his breath, running five times for 20 yards. That role is not likely to change any time soon, but Conner's value comes as a handcuff to Bell, who has missed 14 games over the past three seasons.

Lavon Hooks
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
Shazier logged an efficient eight tackles (five solo) and one pass defended in Sunday's victory over the Vikings.

After seven tackles (four solo) in the season opener, Shazier picked up right where he left off in Week 2. The 25-year-old was the only Steelers' defensive player to see every snap (66) and is primed to see heavy workloads going forward. He has yet to record a sack or force a turnover, but it's probably just a matter of time.

Antonio Crawford
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Mike Matthews
Matthews (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.

Matthews had been waived/injured earlier in the week due to an unspecified injury.

Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Antonio Brown
Brown caught five of 11 targets for 62 yards during Sunday's 26-9 win over the Vikings.

Brown was the most targeted Steeler by a healthy margin, but he struggled to break off many big plays as the stout Minnesota defense keyed in on him. While this wasn't the type of production Brown's fantasy owners hoped for, his usage remained high and he is still just a week removed from catching all 11 of his targets. Brown should bounce back with a big performance next week against the Bears.

Anthony Chickillo
Chickillo had six tackles (four solo) including two sacks, and recovered a blocked punt for a touchdown in Pittsburgh's 21-18 win over Cleveland on Sunday.

Tyler Matakevich came up the middle to block Britton Colquitt's punt, and Chickillo, starting for the injured Bud Dupree (shoulder), grabbed it in the end zone for the early 7-0 lead. It was the first time the Steelers blocked a punt for a touchdown since 1998 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Marcus Gilbert
Gilbert has been limited in practice due to a hamstring injury, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Gilbert played 59 of the team's 74 offensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Vikings, but it's unclear exactly when he suffered the injury. Consider the lineman day-to-day until the Steelers can provide an official update.

Hamstring - Did Not Practice on Friday. Out for Week 3 at Chicago
L.J. Fort
Fort was released by the Steelers on Tuesday, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports.

Fort was active for the Steelers' season-opening win over the Browns, recording two tackles while logging 19 of his 20 snaps on special teams. The organization evidently didn't view him as a key part of that unit, so he was let go to create room on the 53-man roster for fellow linebacker Steven Johnson.

Brandon Johnson
Bud Dupree
Dupree (shoulder) was a limited participant at the Steelers' practice Wednesday.

Dupree finished last week as a full participant before seeing his first game action Sunday, when he played 63 of 65 defensive snaps and recorded his first sack of the season. This is likely just the Steelers' being cautious as the 24-year-old returns from a lingering injury, but it's still worth paying attention to his work in practice this week.

James Harrison
Harrison lost his starting role to rookie T.J. Watt this preseason, Dave Lolley of the Washington Observer-Reporter reports.

There's no shame in losing a starting role to a youthful first-round draft pick, especially when you look at Watt's ability to terrorize quarterbacks. Harrison still shows no signs of slowing down, recording 53 tackles and five sacks last season over 15 games, his best campaign since 2012. Expect him to be the first man off the bench when needed, but the reduction in snaps likely will take him away from true fantasy relevance.

Jordan Berry
No Updates
Kameron Canaday
No Updates
Cortez Allen
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.

Vance McDonald
McDonald (back) is not listed on Wednesday's injury report.

McDonald logged just 18 snaps Week 1 and missed Week 2 with a back injury, but he could have a big role Sunday against the Bears if Jesse James' ankle injury turns out to be serious. Despite playing through the ailment in Sunday's win over the Vikings, James was held out of practice Wednesday.

Brian Allen
The Steelers selected Allen in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 173rd overall.

This looks like a nice pick for Pittsburgh. A huge corner at 6-foot-3, 215 pounds with 34-inch arms, Allen ran a 4.48-second 40 at the Combine while logging a superb 6.64-second three-cone drill. If he can't stick at corner, Allen should make a worthwhile safety project for Pittsburgh.

Farrington Huguenin
No Updates
Stephon Tuitt
Tuitt (biceps) was a full participant at the Steelers' practice Thursday.

Thursday's practice marks the first time Tuitt has practiced since injuring his bicep in the Steelers' season opener. It's a great first step, but his involvement in Friday's practice is just an important in determining his availability for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Biceps - Full Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 3 at Chicago
David DeCastro
No Updates
Coty Sensabaugh
Sensabaugh (ankle) signed a two-year contract with the Steelers on Monday.

Sensabaugh averaged about 42 tackles while making 27 starts for the Titans over his first four seasons, but then split time between the Rams and Giants last year. In joining the Steelers, the 28-year-old Sensabaugh figures to compete for the team's nickel cornerback job.

Mike Mitchell
Mitchell (hamstring) doesn't appear on Wednesday's injury report.

Contrary to what head coach Mike Tomlin said yesterday, Mitchell's absence from the injury report suggests the safety's availability for this weekend's season opener isn't in question. Provided his health cooperates the rest of the week, look for the veteran to open Sunday's tilt against the Browns in his usual starting position.

Arthur Moats
Moats had one tackle in Pittsburgh's 30-12 wild-card win against Miami on Sunday.

Moats played in all 16 regular season games for the fourth consecutive season, finishing with 21 tackles (nine solo), including 3.5 sacks.

Ramon Foster
No Updates
Tyler Matakevich
Matakevich had two tackles (both solo) in Pittsburgh's 27-24 overtime win against Cleveland on Sunday.

The rookie linebacker played in all 16 regular season games, totaling 20 tackles (16 solo). He recorded a career-best nine tackles against Miami, who he'll face in the wild-card game, earlier this season.

Cameron Sutton
The Steelers selected Sutton in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 94th overall.

Sutton didn't show good athleticism at the Combine, running a 4.52-second 40-yard dash and posting a 34-inch vertical at 5-foot-11, 188 pounds, but he was a standout corner at Tennessee and should provide useful depth.

Hamstring - Injured Reserve
Roosevelt Nix-Jones
Nix caught two passes for five yards in the Steelers' overtime win against the Browns on Sunday.

Targeted twice, Nix had his first receptions this season, matching his 2015 total. He still has no rushing attempts in his two NFL seasons, a trend that should continue when Pittsburgh hosts Miami in the Wild Card round.

Jay Rome
Keion Adams
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Le'Veon Bell
Bell rushed 27 times for 87 yards and caught all four of his targets for another four yards in Sunday's 26-9 win over the Vikings.

Bell was given a massive workloard as his side led throughout the game, but he was held to just 3.2 yards per carry by a stout Minnesota front. He was also rendered ineffective in the passing game, failing to gain yardage on three of his receptions. Bell hasn't produced a monstrous fantasy outing just yet, but the large jump in usage was a positive sign for his prospects moving forward. He will look to break out in a more favorable matchup with the Bears next week.

Mike Hilton
Hilton had a team-high nine tackles (six solo) in Pittsburgh's 26-9 win over Minnesota on Sunday.

Playing in just his second NFL game, Hilton outperformed Joe Haden, William Gay and Artie Burns combined, making a case for additional playing time as the season progresses.

Fitzgerald Toussaint
Toussaint (leg) signed with the Steelers' practice squad Sunday, Chris Adamski of TribLive.com reports.

Toussaint was released on Saturday after being buried on the team's running back depth chart, but he'll remain with the organization. Given his versatile skill set, Toussaint is a good tailback for Pittsburgh to keep around in case star Le'Veon Bell goes down with an injury at any point this season.

T.J. Watt
Watt is dealing with a low-grade groin strain but could still play in Sunday's game against the Bears, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

Watt left Sunday's game with the groin injury and did not return, but it doesn't appear as though it is a very serious one. Expect an official update on Watt to come Wednesday when the team releases its first injury report for Week 3, but the expectation is that the rookie linebacker will be limited in practice all week.

Groin - Did Not Practice on Friday. Out for Week 3 at Chicago
Justin Hunter
Hunter (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Browns, Teresa Varley of Steelers.com reports.

Hunter wasn't expected to be anything more than a depth option in the receiving corps if active, so the coach's decision to leave him inactive shouldn't have much fantasy implication. His next chance to play will be in Week 2 against the Vikings.

Joshua Dobbs
Dobbs (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Browns, Teresa Varley of Steelers.com reports.

The Steelers have elected to dress only two quarterbacks in Week 1, with Landry Jones serving as Ben Roethlisberger's backup. Dobbs' first game on the active roster will have to wait, while it remains to be seen if Pittsburgh plans to keep the 2017 fourth-rounder sidelined in Week 2 as well.

J.J. Wilcox
Wilcox (concussion) was a full participant at practice Wednesday.

Wilcox was nearly active the Steelers' victory over the Vikings on Sunday, but was ultimately did not suit up. Now clear of the league's concussion protocol, the 26-year-old will likely resume his role as reserve safety and special teams contributor.

Darrius Heyward-Bey
Heyward-Bey (illness) was a full participant at the Steelers' practice Thursday.

Heyward-Bey sat out Wednesday's practice with an unspecified illness, but it doesn't appear to have been too serious. The veteran receiver has received only three offensive snaps this season and will likely continue as a special teams-oriented player against the Bears on Sunday.

Joe Haden
Haden totaled six tackles (four solo) including a sack in Sunday's win over the Browns.

Defense and special teams dominated for both teams in the early going, with the half ending when Haden, who was recently cut by the Browns after seven seasons, sacked rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer. No doubt Haden was amped to face his former team, recording his first sack since 2011.

Xavier Grimble
Grimble was not targeted in Pittsburgh's 21-18 win over Cleveland on Sunday.

Grimble played just one offensive snap and appears to have fallen to third on the depth chart at tight end, at least for now, behind Jesse James and Vance McDonald.

JuJu Smith-Schuster
Smith-Schuster caught three passes for 16 yards and a touchdown in Pittsburgh's 26-9 win over Minnesota on Sunday.

The score came on a 4-yard flip from Ben Roethlisberger in the second quarter to put the Steelers up 14-0. Smith-Schuster went without being targeted last week, so his four targets are an encouraging sign, and the Steelers hope to see much more from their second-round draft pick in the weeks to come.

Sean Davis
Davis tied a team high with eight tackles (seven solo) in a victory over the Vikings Sunday.

Davis was relatively quiet in Week 1, as he tallied just three tackles. However, game flow got him more involved against the Vikings. The 23-year-old was sidelined for just one play as he saw 65 of a possible 66 snaps in the contest.

Dashaun Phillips
The Redskins traded Philips to the Steelers in exchange for C Lucas Crowley on Wednesday, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The Steelers are still looking to solidify their CB depth chart. Phillips, a third-year corner out of Tarleton State, should step in and compete for a depth role behind Artie Burns and Ross Cockrell.

Tyson Alualu
Alualu (calf) was active for last Friday's preseason opener against the Giants.

Alualu had been limited through offseason workouts due to a calf injury, but it appears as though he has put the ailment behind him. He recorded three tackles in Friday's contest.

Jesse James
After practicing fully Friday, James (ankle) no longer appears on the Steelers' Week 3 injury report.

Through two games, James has logged 10 catches (on 13 targets) for 68 yards, to go along with two Week 1 touchdowns. It remains to be seen if James starts losing looks to fellow TE Vance McDonald, but in Week 2 James was on the field for 96% of the Steelers' snaps on offense.

Javon Hargrave
Hargrave (concussion) doesn't appear on Wednesday's injury report.

Hargrave exited the Steelers' second exhibition with a suspected concussion, but his absence from Wednesday's report suggests that's no longer a concern. The 2016 third-rounder projects to start at nose tackle this season and seems poised to improve upon the 27 tackles he notched in his rookie year.

Cameron Heyward
Heyward (pectoral) is listed as the starting left defensive end ahead of this week's preseason matchup with the Falcons, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports.

Heyward has been dealing with a pectoral injury that has kept him out since November of last year, but given his status as a projected starter two days ahead of the Steelers' second preseason contest, it appears he's ready to make his return. The team will likely remain cautious with Heyward to ensure his health for the start of the regular season.

Robert Golden
Golden (ankle) was a full participant at practice Wednesday.

Golden sat out the Steelers' past two games due to his ankle injury but he appears to be recovered now and will likely be able to return for the divisional round game against the Chiefs on Sunday.

Vince Williams
Williams totaled four tackles (all solo) including a sack in Pittsburgh's 26-9 win over Minnesota on Sunday.

The fourth quarter sack of Case Keenum resulted in a 10-yard loss that ultimately ended the Vikings drive. It was the team's ninth sack in two games, a milestone they did not achieve until Week 9 last season. The defense is a viable streaming option against the Bears in Week 3.

Greg Ducre
Ducre (ankle) was placed on injured reserve after clearing waivers Thursday.

Ducre may eventually reach an injury settlement and become a free agent. If he opts to go this route, his lack of experience likely projects him for a practice squad spot, with a long shot of potentially making an active roster in a special teams capacity.

Ankle - Injured Reserve
Jake Rodgers

Marcus Tucker

B.J. Finney

William Gay
Gay recorded five tackles (four solo) in the Steelers' overtime win against the Browns on Sunday.

The 2016 season was almost an exact repeat of 2015 for Gay, who again finished with exactly 58 tackles, including one sack, and one interception.

Terrell Watson
Watson is listed third on the depth chart ahead of Week 1 in Cleveland.

When asked about the team's running back situation, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said he's comfortable with James Conner getting some work behind Le'Veon Bell but didn't bother mentioning Watson, Ed Bouchette of The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. That doesn't exactly come as a surprise considering Conner is a 2017 third-round pick, whereas Watson went undrafted in 2015 and only has one regular-season appearance on his ledger. There is a real chance Watson would get involved if Bell were to suffer an injury. The 2015 UDFA rumbled for 173 yards on 37 carries in the preseason to surprisingly beat out Fitzgerald Toussaint for a roster spot.

Tyriq McCord
Artie Burns
Burns recorded three tackles (two solo) and a fumble recovery in Sunday's win over the Vikings.

The second-year defensive back matched his tackle totals from Week 1, and added his first career fumble recovery in the final minute of the game. In 18 career games, Burns now has four turnovers after recording three interceptions in his rookie season.

Ben Roethlisberger
Roethlisberger completed 23 of 35 passes for 243 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 26-9 win over the Vikings.

Roethlisberger did much of his damage early in the game, connecting with Martavis Bryant on a 27-yard touchdown in the first quarter before tossing a shovel pass to JuJu Smith-Schuster for another score early in the second. He spread the ball around to six different receivers and managed a solid performance despite Antonio Brown's relatively tame production. Roethlisberger could very well have the deepest complement of skill position players he's ever had this season and will look to continue what has been a strong start next week against the Bears.

Chris Boswell
Boswell made all four field-goals (29, 37, 43, 46) and both extra-point attempts in Sunday's win over the Vikings.

The Steelers managed only 335 yards and converted only 3 of 13 third downs, but that provided Boswell with several scoring opportunities. He did miss on a 51-yard field goal, but an illegal formation penalty on the Vikings gave him new life and Boswell connected from 46 yards out. He is an attractive option in Week 3 against the winless Bears, who have yielded six field goals and four extra points to opposing kickers through two games.

Landry Jones
Jones (abdomen) completed 21 of 31 passes for 163 yards with one touchdown and one interception in Saturday's 19-15 preseason loss to the Colts.

Like starter Ben Roethlisberger, Jones was logging his first preseason action Saturday. He looked sharp overall and found Xavier Grimble for a 10-yard touchdown in the third quarter, although he did cost what was likely the Steelers' final hope for victory by throwing an interception in the end zone with under five minutes to go in the contest. Jones is once again slated to serve as Roethlisberger's top backup in the coming season, and given the latter's injury history, he could well see action at some point in 2017.

Chris Hubbard

Maurkice Pouncey

Steven Johnson
Johnson signed a contract with the Steelers on Tuesday, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports.

Johnson, who was let go by the Steelers one day before Sunday's season-opening win over the Browns, will rejoin the team to provide further depth at linebacker. It's expected that the 29-year-old will see most of his snaps on the Steelers' special teams units.

L.T. Walton
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
McGee signed a contract with the Steelers on Wednesday.

McGee, an undrafted second-year tight end out of Florida, has spent time with the Raiders and Chargers since originally signing with the Panthers in May of 2016. He'll likely be competing with Dave Johnson and Phazahn Odom for the No. 3 tight end job.

Jerald Hawkins
Hawkins (knee) wasn't listed Wednesday on the Steelers' injury report.

Hawkins hadn't practiced in two weeks, so his return to the field Wednesday was a welcome surprise. Starting left tackle Alejandro Villanueva (illness) was also absent from the injury report, so Hawkins should be in store for a backup role in the Week 3 matchup with the Bears.

Knee - Limited Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 3 at Chicago
Kyle Friend
No Updates
Alejandro Villanueva
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.

Jacob Hagen
No Updates
Matt Feiler
No Updates
Dan McCullers-Sanders
McCullers totaled five tackles (three solo), including a sack in the Steelers' 27-24 overtime win against Cleveland on Sunday.

McCullers had the best game of his three-year career, finishing the season with 17 tackles (10 solo), including the one sack. Pittsburgh hosts Miami, against whom they lost 3015 in Week 6, in the Wild Card round next week.

Eli Rogers
Rogers caught 4-of-7 passes for 43 yards in Pittsburgh's 26-9 win over Minnesota on Sunday.

Rogers seven targets were second only to Antonio Brown (11), which is encouraging after receiving just four targets in Week 1, and his 43 yards match his career average per game. Still, he has scored just three times in 15 games, making him difficult to start in most fantasy formats.

Martavis Bryant
Bryant caught three of four targets for 91 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-9 win over the Vikings. He also rushed once time for seven yards.

Bryant made a huge impact despite finishing tied for fourth on the team in targets, thanks in large part to a 51-yard gain and a 27-yard touchdown reception. This game was something of a microcosm for Bryant's fantasy value, which hinges on big plays and finding the end zone rather than sheer volume. Still, he's displayed a knack for thriving in such a role and will look to build on this effort next week against the Bears.
