Position Listing
James Conner
News
Conner has avoided the Steelers' injury report since limping off the field Sunday in Indianapolis.

Conner has received between one and eight offensive snaps in eight of nine games this season, but on his one such rep Sunday, he had a visible limp after a 12-yard gain. The lack of a designation in advance of Thursday's game against the Titans implies he'll be available as Le'Veon Bell's direct backup, per usual.

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
Shazier recorded 10 tackles (five solo) in Thursday's win over the Titans.

Shazier was all over the place Thursday, recording a double-digit tackle count for the first time since Week 4. The 25-year-old linebacker now has 79 tackles on the year, which puts him well on his way to setting a new season high.

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

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

Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Antonio Brown
News
Brown brought in 10 of 13 targets for 144 yards and three touchdowns in Thursday's 40-17 win over the Titans. He also fumbled once but it was recovered.

After disappointing fantasy owners just four days prior with a lackluster showing against a beatable Colts secondary, Brown more than made up for it versus the Titans. He got his barrage started early with a 41-yard scoring reception to cap off the Steelers' first possession, subsequently added a leaping five-yard touchdown catch and an acrobatic 10-yard, one-handed end-zone grab in which he trapped the ball against his helmet in the second half. It was Brown's first multi-touchdown game of 2017 and his first 100-yard effort since Week 6 against the Chiefs, snapping a three-game stretch in which he'd registered no more than 70 receiving yards. He'll look to put together another spectacular effort against a vulnerable Packers secondary in Week 12.

Anthony Chickillo
News
Chickillo totaled two tackles (both solo), including a sack in Sunday's 23-17 overtime loss to the Bears.

Chickillo now has three sacks on the season to lead the Pittsburgh defense. He'll look to add to his total in Week 4 in Baltimore, where he recorded six tackles and a half sack in their 21-14 loss last season.

Marcus Gilbert
News
Gilbert was handed a four-game suspension for a violation of the league's performance-enhancing substance policy, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Brown won't be eligible to play until the Steelers' Week 16 matchup with the Texans.

Injury
Suspension - Suspended until Week 16 at Houston
L.J. Fort
News
Fort was promoted to the active roster Saturday, the team's official site reports.

Fort likely figures to slide in at depth linebacker. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, Fort will presumably remain a special teams asset.

Brandon Johnson
Injury
Bud Dupree
News
Dupree totaled three tackles (one solo), including a sack, during Sunday's 29-14 victory over the Bengals.

Already having amassed three sacks, Dupree should easily surpass his career-best figure of 4.5. He'll look to add to his total in Week 8 against a Lions squad that has allowed the fourth-most sacks (23) in the NFL.

James Harrison
News
Harrison (back) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Harrison, who's only appeared in four of 10 games this season, has been dealing with injuries on a weekly basis. Fortunately, he seems to be starting this week off on the right foot and looks to be on track to play Sunday night against the Packers.

Jordan Berry
No Updates
Kameron Canaday
No Updates
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 (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

It's not the greatest sign that McDonald isn't able to practice yet after missing this past Thursday's win over the Titans, but he does have a couple more days to return to the practice field in advance of Sunday night's game against the Packers. In McDonald's absence in Week 11, fellow tight end Jesse James hauled in five of his eight targets for 21 yards and a TD.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for Week 12 vs. Green Bay
Brian Allen
News
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
News
Tuitt registered three tackles (two solo) and a sack in Thursday's win over the Titans.

Tuitt now has a sack in back to back contests after being hampered by several different injuries to begin the season. He'll look to keep the streak going this Sunday night against a struggling Packers' offense.

David DeCastro
No Updates
Coty Sensabaugh
News
Sensabaugh is in line to start at cornerback with Joe Haden (leg) set to miss 5-to-6 weeks, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

When Haden left Sunday's game against the Colts with the fibular fracture, it was the veteran Sensabaugh who replaced him in the lineup for the remainder of the contest. With Haden playing nearly 90 percent of the team's defensive snaps this season, Sensabaugh will have some big shoes to fill in Pittsburgh's secondary.

Mike Mitchell
News
Mitchell (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Mitchell missed last week's game against the Titans after spraining his ankle in Week 10. His full participation Wednesday suggests he's in line to make a return for Sunday's game against the Packers.

Arthur Moats
News
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
News
Foster (back) was a full participant at Thursday's practice.

Foster missed Week 6 with a back injury, but his unrestricted participation at Thursday's practice indicates he will play in Sunday's game against the Bengals. Expect him to start at his normal left guard spot.

Tyler Matakevich
News
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
News
The Steelers activated Sutton (hamstring) from injured reserve Tuesday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Sutton, a third-round pick in April out of Tennessee, appears ready to make his NFL debut Sunday against the Packers after returning to practice three weeks ago. Though his addition to the 53-man roster comes at a welcome time with Joe Haden (upper leg) set to miss multiple weeks, Sutton is uncertain to immediately pick up extended snaps on defense due to his lack of NFL experience. Look for head coach Mike Tomlin to proceed with Artie Burns and Coty Sensabaugh as the team's starting cornerbacks unless the performance of either player dips in the Steelers' subsequent contests.

Roosevelt Nix-Jones
News
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
Injury
Keion Adams
Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Le'Veon Bell
News
Bell rushed 12 times for 46 yards and brought in nine of 11 targets for 57 yards in Thursday's 40-17 win over the Titans.

Defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau appeared intent on not allowing Bell to beat the Titans on the ground, leading to the standout running back's lowest carry total since the opener versus the Browns. The 25-year-old's yardage tally was also his worst since that contest, but Bell helped make it up to fantasy owners with his second-most prolific reception total of the campaign. Bell's usage continues to be through the roof in most games, rendering him an elite option in all season-long and daily formats despite a current 3.8 yards per carry figure that's his lowest since his rookie season. He'll look to get his numbers on the ground back up versus the Packers in a Week 12 home showdown.

Mike Hilton
News
Hilton totaled six tackles (four solo) and an interception in Thursday's 40-17 win over the Titans.

The first-year cornerback now has two interceptions this season, second only on the team to Ryan Shazier (three). He's also compiled 41 tackles, including a sack. His performance, combined with injuries to Joe Haden (leg) and Mike Mitchell (ankle), may give Hilton an opportunity for even more playing time the rest of the season.

T.J. Watt
News
Watt had six tackles (five solo), including a sack during Sunday's 29-14 victory over the Bengals.

Watt now has four sacks this season, which ties him for eighth among all linebackers. The rookie helped the defense collect four sacks and two interceptions, all after halftime, and has earned his spot as a starter on a defense that has held opponents to an average of 17 points per game. They will be tested in Week 8 against the Lions, who average nearly 27 points per contest.

Fitzgerald Toussaint
News
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.

Justin Hunter
News
Hunter (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

No Steelers' wideouts are nursing injuries right now, so Hunter likely wouldn't play many offensive snaps anyways. Hunter has just two receptions for 11 yards this season.

Joshua Dobbs
News
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
News
Wilcox recorded five tackles (four solo) and an interception in Sunday's 23-17 overtime loss to the Bears.

Wilcox showed no lingering effects from the concussion he sustained last week, picking off a pass thrown behind Zach Miller at the Chicago 21, which led to a tying field goal by Chris Boswell midway through the fourth quarter. This was his first interception of the season and the sixth of his career. He'll look to add to that total in Week 4 against Baltimore, as the Pittsburgh defense recorded two interceptions in their two games against the Ravens last season.

Darrius Heyward-Bey
News
Heyward-Bey returned to Sunday's game against the Colts after injuring his foot, Burt Lauten of the Steelers' official site reports.

Heyward-Bey was only out for a series before he was deemed healthy enough to get into the game. He'll return to his role as a depth receiver with special teams upside.

Joe Haden
News
Haden (upper leg) won't require surgery to repair a non-displaced fracture of his left fibula, but he's still expected to be sidelined for 5-to-6 weeks, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

The Steelers feared Haden may have suffered a season-ending injury in Sunday's win over the Colts, and while it's still conceivable that the cornerback could hit injured reserve, the damage he suffered apparently isn't as extensive as the team initially anticipated. Haden, who was signed in August after being cut by the Browns, has enjoyed a solid bounce-back campaign while upgrading a Pittsburgh secondary whose play has spurred the team's 7-2 start. Coty Sensabaugh replaced Haden during Sunday's game and would likely be the main beneficiary for increased snaps while the two-time Pro Bowler is sidelined.

Injury
Upper Leg - Out for Week 12 vs. Green Bay
Xavier Grimble
News
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
News
Smith-Schuster (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Per ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, Smith-Schuster's hamstring issue is considered "small," but it is something that the Steelers will monitor, given that coach Mike Tomlin seems intent on the importance of the rookie wideout logging his share of practice reps as the team prepares for Sunday night's game against the Packers.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for Week 12 vs. Green Bay
Sean Davis
News
Davis had three tackles (two solo) and an interception in Thursday's 40-17 win over the Titans.

The defense came up with huge plays all game, including four interceptions despite injuries to two starters in the secondary. They also sacked Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota five times.

Dashaun Phillips
News
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
News
Alualu totaled three tackles (two solo), including a sack in a 20-15 win over the Lions on Sunday night.

The eight-year veteran came up with a huge play, sacking Matt Stafford on a fourth-and-one at the Pittsburgh one-yard line, and now has two sacks on the season. Alualu is on pace to exceed his career best of 3.5 sacks, which he achieved twice (2010, 2012). When they return from their bye week, Pittsburgh will face Indianapolis, who have allowed a league-worst 33 sacks this season.

Jesse James
News
James brought in five of eight targets for 21 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 40-17 win over the Titans.

The third-year tight end equaled his largest target share of the season with position mate Vance McDonald (ankle) inactive, parlaying it into his first touchdown since Week 1 in the process. James hadn't been targeted in three of the prior four contests, so Thursday's relative success could have at least partly been attributed to McDonald's status. However, the tight end position isn't an overly integral one in the 2017 version of the Steelers' offense, as Antonio Brown, Le'Veon Bell and, as of late, JuJu Smith-Schuster are commanding a majority of the looks in the passing game. James remains a hit-or-miss fantasy option each week and will look to build on Thursday's success versus the Packers in Week 12.

Javon Hargrave
News
Hargrave had two tackles (both solo), including a sack in Pittsburgh's 23-17 overtime loss to Chicago on Sunday.

Hargrave now has two sacks through his first three games this season, matching his total for all of 2016. He could add to that total in Week 4 against the Ravens, who allowed the Steelers to record five sacks in their two games last season.

Cameron Heyward
News
Heyward totaled three tackles (two solo), including two sacks in Thursday's 40-17 win over the Titans.

Pittsburgh's sack leader (seven) is tied for seventh in sacks among all defensive ends this season. He'll look to add to his total in Week 12 against Green Bay, which has allowed 30 sacks in nine games this season, tied for fifth most in the league.

Robert Golden
News
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
News
Williams recorded seven tackles (six solo), including a sack in Thursday's 40-17 win over the Titans.

With 54 tackles, including six sacks, Williams is second on Pittsburgh's defense to Ryan Shazier (79) and Cameron Heyward (seven) respectively. With six games remaining, he already has a career-high in both, making him a surprising IDP star. In Week 12 the Steelers host the Packers, who they have not faced since Williams' rookie season in 2013.

Greg Ducre
News
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.

William Gay
News
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
News
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
Injury
Artie Burns
News
Burns led Pittsburgh with nine tackles (eight solo) and a fumble recovery during Sunday's 20-15 victory over the Lions.

Burns entered the week with just 16 tackles this season and had no sacks in 23 career games. His biggest play came late in the game, recovering a Golden Tate fumble after a 34-yard reception that had Detroit marching toward a potential go-ahead touchdown. The Steelers hope Burns doesn't cool off while on a bye before hosting the Colts in Week 10.

Ben Roethlisberger
News
Roethlisberger was a full practice participant Wednesday despite feeling under the weather, Mark Kaboly of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Coming off his best performance of the season last week, Roethlisberger apparently is dealing with a minor illness. He wasn't even listed on Wednesday's injury report, and it can be assumed this is a non-issue if he isn't added to the report Thursday. Roethlisberger and the Steelers will face a struggling Packers squad on Sunday Night Football.

Chris Boswell
News
Boswell made all four field-goal tries (26, 28, 41, 50) and all four PATs in Thursday's 40-17 win over the Titans.

After what was arguably the worst game of his career in Week 10, Boswell rebounded nicely with a monster performance, rewarding fantasy owners who stuck with him. Pittsburgh hosts a Packers team in Week 12 that's allowing kickers 8.3 points per game.

Jordan Dangerfield
News
Dangerfield (undisclosed) reached an injury settlement with the Steelers on Friday.

There's still no word on the specifics of the injury, but it's unlikely to be minor considering the role Dangerfield played with Pittsburgh last season. The 26-year-old's future is unclear at this point.

Injury
Undisclosed - Questionable for Week 12 vs. Green Bay
Landry Jones
News
Jones (abdomen) is expected to play in his first preseason game Saturday against the Colts, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Coach Mike Tomlin said that this is a big week for Jones, who has been battling an abdominal injury for nearly a month. With his return to health, Jones is on track to serve as the primary backup to starter Ben Roethlisberger in the coming season.

Chris Hubbard
No Updates
Maurkice Pouncey
No Updates
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 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
News
Hawkins (knee) was not listed on the Steelers' injury report Wednesday.

Hawkins did not play against the Bears on Sunday after participating fully in practice early last week and eventually being listed questionable. The 23-year-old seems to be healthy, but with Alejandro Villanueva (illness) also not listed on the report, Hawkins will likely resume a reserve role.

Keith Kelsey
No Updates
Kyle Friend
No Updates
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
No Updates
Dan McCullers-Sanders
News
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
News
Rogers had one reception for two yards in Pittsburgh's 20-17 win over Indianapolis Sunday.

Since grabbing six passes for 54 yards in the first two games of the season, Rogers has just two receptions for 12 yards. There are just too many better options in the passing game at the moment.

Martavis Bryant
News
Bryant totaled 30 yards on two receptions in Thursday's 40-17 win over the Titans.

Bryant got off to another rough start, failing to catch either of his first two targets. He managed to hold on to his two second-half targets, but his best play of the night came when he recovered an Antonio Brown fumble to continue a Pittsburgh drive that led to a Chris Boswell field goal and a 16-7 halftime lead. At this point, dropped passes and inconsistent route running seems to have caused the Steelers to lose confidence in Bryant, making it difficult for fantasy owners to justify starting him.
