Position Listing
James Conner
News
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
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 led the team with 11 tackles (all solo), two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery in Sunday's 23-17 overtime loss to the Bears.

Shazier now has recorded a team-high 26 tackles in three games and is on pace to shatter his career best of 87 tackles in a season. He and the rest of the defense will look to get back to their winning ways in Week 4 against Baltimore, although the two teams split their 2016 series, each winning at home.

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 hauled in 10 of 14 targets for 110 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 23-17 overtime loss at Chicago.

Brown was the only Pittsburgh player to get much going in a tame performance for this normally explosive offense. His seven-yard touchdown consisted of him catching the ball against off coverage and beating the defender one-on-one to stretch the ball across the plane. With 354 receiving yards in his first three games, Brown has lived up to his status as the top wide receiver off most boards, despite failing to get into the end zone until Sunday.

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 (hamstring/illness) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Gilbert did not practice this week after playing 59 of 79 offensive snaps for the Steelers in Week 2. Chris Hubbard is next up on the depth chart with the veteran right tackle unable to play Sunday.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for Week 4 at Baltimore
L.J. Fort
News
Fort was promoted to the active roster Saturday, the team's official site reports.

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

Brandon Johnson
Injury
Bud Dupree
News
Dupree (shoulder) was a full participant at Steelers practice Friday.

Dupree was a full participant Thursday and Friday after being limited Wednesday, and should therefore be expected to play against the Bears on Sunday. Pittsburgh was likely just being cautious early in the week, and the 24-year-old isn't expected to face any limitations.

James Harrison
News
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
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 (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
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 (biceps) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bears, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Tuitt's inactive status comes as a bit of a surprise after he logged full participation in practice Thursday and Friday. Tyson Alualu will figure to get the start at defensive end for what is an otherwise healthy defensive line.

Injury
Biceps - Questionable for Week 4 at Baltimore
David DeCastro
No Updates
Coty Sensabaugh
News
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
News
Mitchell recorded nine tackles (eight solo) in Pittsburgh's 23-17 overtime loss to Chicago on Sunday.

The nine tackles more than doubled Mitchell's total from the previous two games and were his most in a game since November 2012. As good as he has been in his career, Mitchell's fantasy value is now limited, as he has just five interceptions and no sacks in his last 50 games.

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 is being evaluated for a left hand injury that he sustained during Sunday's game against the Bears, Dave Lolley of the Washington Observer-Reporter reports.

We'll know more about the severity of this injury soon, but for the time being, B.J. Finney will slot in at left guard.

Injury
Hand - Questionable for Week 4 at Baltimore
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 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.

Injury
Hamstring - Injured Reserve
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 15 times for 61 yards and a touchdown while catching six of seven targets for 37 yards in Sunday's 23-17 overtime loss to the Bears.

Bell found pay dirt for the first time this season on a one-yard plunge in the third quarter and approached 100 total yards despite being largely contained once again. His season average of 3.5 yards per carry represents a major drop from the 25-year-old running back's 4.9 mark from each of the previous two campaigns. Even so, Bell's heavy workload and involvement in the passing game makes him an elite option every week.

Mike Hilton
News
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
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.

T.J. Watt
News
Watt (groin) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Watt was limited at practice Wednesday but did not participate the rest of the week, so he doesn't appear to have been close to playing this week. There is no firm timetable for the rookie first-round pick at this point, so we'll have to wait until he's likely evaluated next week.

Injury
Groin - Questionable for Week 4 at Baltimore
Justin Hunter
News
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
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 the 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 (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
News
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
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 caught two passes for 29 yards in Pittsburgh's 23-17 overtime loss to Chicago on Sunday.

The rookie was targeted six times, and appears to have surpassed Eli Rogers on the depth chart, but still isn't performing at a level to warrant insertion in fantasy lineups.

Sean Davis
News
Davis hurt his left ankle Sunday against the Bears and is questionable to return.

Davis missed just one snap in Week 2 against the Vikings en route to a team-high eight tackles. He had one tackle before leaving Sunday's game, but he'll likely shift his focus to getting ready for a rivalry matchup with the Ravens in Week 4.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for Week 4 at Baltimore
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 was limited at practice Tuesday due to a calf injury, Chris Adamski of The Tribune-Review reports.

Alualu missed all of OTAs with the calf injury, so his limited participation is a welcome sign for Steelers' fans. Barring a major setback, it appears the injury will have no effect on his availability during the regular season.

Jesse James
News
James caught 2-of-4 passes for 19 yards in Pittsburgh's 23-17 overtime loss to Chicago on Sunday.

James briefly left the game with a shoulder injury, but returned after missing only a few snaps. He has a favorable Week 4 matchup against Baltimore, which has allowed opposing tight ends to score four touchdowns in their past two games.

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 (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
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 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
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.

Injury

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 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
News
Roethlisberger completed 22 of 39 passes for 235 yards and a touchdown while adding a six-yard rush and losing a fumble in Sunday's 23-17 overtime loss to Chicago.

Roethlisberger lost the ball on a first-quarter sack, but made amends with a seven-yard touchdown pass to Antonio Brown in the second quarter. He's now put together three consecutive middling performances, throwing for between 235 and 263 yards in each game. With explosive wide receivers Martavis Bryant and Brown as well as pass-catching running back Le'Veon Bell at his disposal, it's likely just a matter of time until Big Ben kicks it into high gear.

Chris Boswell
News
Boswell made 1-of-2 field-goals (32) and both extra-point attempts in Pittsburgh's 23-17 overtime loss to Chicago on Sunday.

Boswell's miss came on a 35-yard attempt that was blocked and returned 73 yards before being fumbled out of bounds in the end zone for a touchback. However, an illegal bat penalty on holder Jordan Berry gave the Bears the ball at the Pittsburgh 1-yard line, leading to a Connor Barth field goal with no time remaining in the first half. Fantasy owners may want to look for other kicking options in Week 4, as Boswell averaged just 4.5 points in his two games against Baltimore last season.

Landry Jones
News
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
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) 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.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for Week 4 at Baltimore
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.

Jacob Hagen

Matt Feiler

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 failed to have a reception in Sunday's 23-17 overtime loss to the Bears.

Rogers was not targeted by Ben Roethlisberger all game, but played a pivotal role is the loss. After the Steelers defense shut down Chicago's first offensive possession of the game, Rogers fumbled the punt and Sherrick McManus recovered at the Pittsburgh 29-yard line. Six plays later, a 3-yard touchdown run by Jordan Howard gave the Bears an early 7-0 lead. He'll look to rebound against the Ravens in Week 4, who he beat for 187 yards on 10 receptions in two games last season.

Martavis Bryant
News
Bryant turned eight targets into just two catches for 30 yards in Sunday's 23-17 overtime loss at Chicago.

Bryant finished second in targets to Antonio Brown's 14, narrowly edging out Le'Veon Bell's seven. He's been quiet in both of Pittsburgh's road games, but exploded for 91 yards and a touchdown at home. While Bryant brings a tremendous big-play element to this offense, he's not nearly as consistent as Brown or Bell.
