  RT Marcus Gilbert will miss the next four games after being suspended for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing drugs. In a statement, general manager said, "We are disappointed that Marcus Gilbert has been suspended four games for using performance-enhancing substances. He will not appeal the NFL's decision.

  CB Joe Haden has a fractured fibula in his left leg and has been ruled out for the Thursday night game against the Titans. Head coach Mike Tomlin said the Steelers will not immediately place on Haden on injured reserve because they want to give him an opportunity to play again during the regular season if he is able.

Nov 7 2017 - JuJu Smith-Schuster
  WR JuJu Smith-Schuster's mode of transportation has been talked about as much as his considerable ability on the field during his rookie season with the Pittsburgh Steelers. On Tuesday, Smith-Schuster revealed on Twitter that he is now a certified driver in Pennsylvania. Teammates Alejandro Villanueva and Le'Veon Bell have helped teach the 20-year-old Smith-Schuster how to navigate his way on the streets behind the wheel of a car. Smith-Schuster famously claimed his bike was stolen two weeks ago before Mount Oliver (Pa.) Police retrieved it from someone who purchased it for $200. Smith-Schuster has 24 receptions for 424 yards and four touchdowns in eight games this season.

He came back for the Chiefs game, but aggravated the injury and missed the final two games before the Steelers' off week.


Nov 6 2017 - Le'Veon Bell
  RB Le'Veon Bell is one of the most effective players in the NFL when it comes to scoring in goal-line situations. Bell has five carries from the 5-yard line or closer, and he has scored on four of them.


Nov 6 2017 - Martavis Bryant
  WR Martavis Bryant has not received any indication what his role might be this week against the Colts, but he does believe he will play. Bryant was benched for the Lions game because head coach Mike Tomlin did not like that he requested a trade via his social media accounts. He spent the entire week of the Lions game as a scout-team receiver. Bryant took some reps with the first-team offense Monday.


Nov 1 2017 - Vince Williams
  ILB Vince Williams, who replaced longtime starter Lawrence Timmons, has been a pleasant surprise in the first half of the season. The Steelers signed Williams to a new contract last summer when they could not work out a long-term deal with Timmons, who signed with Miami in March.


Nov 1 2017 - Martavis Bryant
  WR Martavis Bryant, who made headlines for twice requesting a trade in recent weeks, was not traded by the Tuesday deadline and will remain on the roster for the second half of the season.

Nov 1 2017 - Mike Mitchell
  S Mike Mitchell's calf injury is not considered serious and he could be ready to play when the Steelers play the Colts after their bye week. Mitchell injured his calf against the Lions and missed about half the game. Reserves Robert Golden and J.J. Wilcox replaced him.


Nov 1 2017 - Cameron Sutton
  CB Cameron Sutton, who has been on injured reserve since the beginning of the season due to a hamstring injury, returned to practice Tuesday. The Steelers have 21 days to decide if Sutton will be activated to the 53-man roster. Sutton, the team's third-round pick in April, did not practice much in training camp because of his injury, but the Steelers coaches were impressed with his man coverage abilities this spring.


Oct 30 2017 - Cameron Heyward
  DE Cameron Heyward recorded his 30th career sack, which is tied for third-most in team history by a defensive lineman.


Oct 30 2017 - JuJu Smith-Schuster

Oct 30 2017 - Ben Roethlisberger
  QB Ben Roethlisberger has thrown touchdown passes of 94, 95 and 97 yards. The 97-yarder was completed to JuJu Smith-Schuster Sunday night in Detroit. The 94-yarder was to Martavis Bryant in 2014 and the 95-yarder was to Mike Wallace in 2010.

  WR Martavis Bryant, who complained about his limited usage on social media, was inactive.


Oct 30 2017 - JuJu Smith-Schuster

He beat Lions cornerback Quandre Diggs on a 97-yard touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger in the third quarter. "He's not playing like a rookie," Roethlisberger said. "He's playing like a seasoned vet. It's fun to watch. I think he's just too young, too silly, too fun to know any better. But we love him and we hope we keep getting great play from him." Smith-Schuster saw his role expand thanks to controversial comments by fellow receiver Martavis Bryant. Early in the week, Bryant expressed his frustration over his role in the Steelers' attack. Among his comments was a dig at Smith-Schuster.
