 Latest Steelers Player Notes
Oct 16 2018 - Ben Roethlisberger
  QB Ben Roethlisberger is now 14-2 in his career at Paul Brown Stadium. He was 32-of-46 for 369 yards and a touchdown, good for a 100.7 quarterback rating on Sunday vs. the Bengals.


Oct 16 2018 - Le'Veon Bell
  RB Le'Veon Bell is not expected to report to the Steelers this week, as previously reported. Bell has yet to sign his $14.5 million franchise tag with the Steelers. He finished last season with 1,291 rushing yards and 85 receptions for 655 yards. Bell was also named All-Pro for the second time.


Oct 16 2018 - JuJu Smith-Schuster
  WR JuJu Smith-Schuster caught seven passes for 111 yards on Sunday. The second-year pro leads the Steelers with 42 receptions for 561 yards and two touchdowns this season.


Oct 16 2018 - Antonio Brown
  WR Antonio Brown's 31-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown with 10 seconds left sent Pittsburgh to a 28-21 victory Sunday. Brown finished five catches for 105-yards and the one touchdown.


Oct 15 2018 - James Conner
  RB James Conner had his third 100-yard, two-touchdown game. Since 1970, only five NFL players have rushed for at least 100 yards and two touchdowns in three of their team's first six games of the season: Conner (2018), Chris Johnson (2010), Shaun Alexander (2005), Priest Holmes (2004) and Emmitt Smith (1995).


Oct 14 2018 - JuJu Smith-Schuster
  WR Juju Smith-Schuster led the Steelers with seven receptions for 111 yards, including three catches and the two-point conversion on the game-winning drive in Sunday's 28-21 win at Cincinnati.


Oct 14 2018 - Antonio Brown
  WR Antonio Brown finished with five catches for 105 yards in Sunday's 28-21 win over Cincinnati.


Oct 14 2018 - Ben Roethlisberger
  QB Ben Roethlisberger connected with Antonio Brown on a dramatic 31-yard touchdown with 10 seconds remaining to give the Pittsburgh Steelers a 28-21 win over the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday afternoon at Paul Brown Stadium. Roethlisberger completed 32 of 46 passes for 369 yards and pulled off his 44th career game-winning drive.


Oct 14 2018 - Ryan Shazier
  LB Ryan Shazier returned to Paul Brown Stadium on Sunday for the first time since sustaining a career-threatening spinal injury last season versus the Cincinnati Bengals. Shazier was seriously injured while making a tackle against the Bengals on Dec. 4. He was stretchered off the field and was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center, which he visited on Saturday night. The 26-year-old Shazier underwent spinal stabilization surgery two days after his injury and began to regain feeling in his legs in early January. "It's been a long journey, but this is still a ways to go. But it all started here in Cincinnati," Shazier wrote on Twitter while posting a video. "Today was an amazing day I was so thankful to be able to tell everyone thank you. #Shalieve"


Oct 14 2018 - Le'Veon Bell
  RB Le'Veon Bell has kept the Pittsburgh Steelers in the dark despite the star running back's claim that he plans to report to the club prior to its game on Oct. 28, ESPN reported on Sunday. Bell hasn't revealed his hand as to exactly when he plans to return prior to the Steelers' game against the Cleveland Browns. He could return any time between Monday and Oct. 22, ESPN reported, citing sources. The Steelers (2-2-1) will visit the Cincinnati Bengals (4-1) on Sunday before heading into their bye week. A mandate in the collective bargaining agreement says players must have four consecutive days off during their bye week. Bell has yet to sign his $14.5 million franchise tag with the Steelers, who have turned to James Conner in his absence. Conner has rushed 84 times for 342 yards and five touchdowns to go along with 22 receptions for 239 yards this season.


Oct 12 2018 - Ben Roethlisberger
  QB Ben Roethlisberger has been dealing with an elbow injury since the season opener. Roethlisberger revealed in a radio interview earlier this week that the elbow was affecting him in Sunday's 41-17 victory over the Atlanta Falcons, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "The second half, I had a talk with myself and said I had to suck it up and deliver the ball like I need to and force my way through it," Roethlisberger said. Roethlisberger initially hurt the elbow when he was sacked late in a Week 1 tie at the Cleveland Browns. There were questions as to whether he would be available the following week and Roethlisberger has skipped practice on Wednesdays since.


Oct 10 2018 - Ben Roethlisberger
  QB Ben Roethlisberger did not practice Wednesday. He said he's been dealing with an elbow injury since the first week of the season, but said it's not a big deal.


Oct 10 2018 - Morgan Burnett
  S Morgan Burnett, who missed the past three games with a groin injury, did not practice Wednesday. The Steelers could shut him down until after their bye week in hopes of getting him healthy for the second half of the season. Burnett has been bothered by the injury since training camp.


Oct 10 2018 - Terrell Edmunds
  S Terrell Edmunds sustained a calf injury against the Falcons, but he was able to practice Wednesday.


Oct 10 2018 - L.J. Fort
  LB L.J. Fort suffered an ankle injury against the Falcons. He did not practice Wednesday. Fort helped fill in for Vince Williams against the Falcons, playing on passing downs.


Oct 10 2018 - Vince Williams
  LB Vince Williams, who missed the Falcons game with a hamstring injury, returned to practice Wednesday.


Oct 10 2018 - James Conner
  RB James Conner shouldn't be relegated to the bench when three-time Pro Bowl selection Le'Veon Bell returns to the team, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said. Roethlisberger made his feelings known Tuesday on 93.7 The Fan. "Now granted, I think Le'Veon's one of the best in the business, I think we all understand that and can agree on that," Roethlisberger said, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "But what James needs to understand -- and he's gonna say the right things, and he should (as) a younger guy with a veteran, awesome football player ahead of him -- but when Le'Veon comes back, in no way, shape or form should James just say, 'OK, it's all yours. I'm gonna sit back and when you need me, use me.' And I will push for James to get as much run as we can because we've seen some great things from him in all phases of football. He's picking up blitzes, he's catching the ball, he's running hard and making plays and playing with a passion, so we need to keep using that."


Oct 10 2018 - T.J. Watt
  LB T.J. Watt was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week for the second time this season on Wednesday after collecting his second three-sack performance. Watt had eight tackles and forced a fumble during Pittsburgh's 41-17 win over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. He also received the honor in Week 1 following a three-sack effort versus Cleveland.


Oct 8 2018 - Antonio Brown
  WR Antonio Brown caught six passes for 101 yards and two touchdowns on Sunday, his first 100-yard game of the season. "All of my catches, all of my touchdowns are from (Ben Roethlisberger), and that's my guy," Brown said. "I live and die with him and the Wi-Fi was lit."


Oct 8 2018 - James Conner
  RB James Conner had 185 total yards and two touchdowns on Sunday. He ran for 110 yards on 21 carries and added 75 yards receiving.


Oct 8 2018 - T.J. Watt
  LB T.J. Watt's three sacks boosted his season total to six tying him with older brother J.J. of the Houston Texans and Bengals defensive lineman Geno Atkins for the most in the NFL.


Oct 8 2018 - Joe Haden
  CB Joe Haden spent Sunday afternoon putting the clamps on the NFL's leading wide receiver in check, shutting down Atlanta's Julio Jones. "He can do everything," Haden said of Jones. "He's big. Physical. Strong. He can catch. Vertical. Everything."


Oct 8 2018 - Cameron Heyward
  DE Cam Heyward picked up a sack and split another with linebacker Jon Bostic.


Oct 8 2018 - Antonio Brown
  WR Antonio Brown, who complained last week about not getting enough targets, caught six passes for 101 yards and two touchdowns.


Oct 8 2018 - James Conner
  RB James Conner rushed 21 times for 110 yards and two touchdowns.


Oct 8 2018 - Ben Roethlisberger
  QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 17 of 26 passes for 235 yards and three touchdowns. He was not sacked. He wasted another opportunity when he threw an interception in the end zone. Pittsburgh is now 12-0 when Roethlisberger throws 30 or fewer passes. "You know you've got to get a win," Roethlisberger said. "You're at home. I think it was more just knowing what we wanted to do."


Oct 3 2018 - Darrius Heyward-Bey
  WR Darrius Heyward-Bey, who injured his ankle against the Ravens, did not practice Wednesday.


Oct 3 2018 - Chris Boswell
  K Chris Boswell injured his left (plant) foot in practice on Wednesday, but he is expected to be OK for Sunday.


Oct 3 2018 - Mike Hilton
  CB Mike Hilton, who missed the Ravens game with an elbow injury, returned to practice and is expected to play Sunday against the Falcons. Hilton said he will wear a brace to protect his elbow, but he does not expect it to hinder his performance.


Oct 3 2018 - Vince Williams
  LB Vince Williams, who injured his hamstring against the Ravens, did not practice Wednesday.


Oct 3 2018 - Brian Allen
  CB Brian Allen was elevated from the practice squad to take Nat Berhe's place on the 53-man roster. Allen was a rookie last season and spent the entire season on the 53-man roster.


Oct 3 2018 - Herb Waters
  CB Herb Waters was signed by the Steelers to their practice squad Tuesday (Oct. 2). He had been waived by the Packers Sept. 3.


Oct 2 2018 - Brian Allen
  CB Brian Allen was promoted from the practice squad by the Pittsburgh Steelers on Tuesday. Allen recorded two special teams tackles while playing in 10 regular-season games last season after being selected in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft. He also played in the Steelers postseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.


Oct 2 2018 - Le'Veon Bell
  RB Le'Veon Bell has not been in contact with Mike Tomlin, the coach said. "I have not talked to Le'Veon and I really have no Le'Veon update," Tomlin said. "We'll cross that bridge when we come to it. Nothing has changed from my perspective in that regard." Tomlin's comments come one day after ESPN's Jeremy Fowler cited a source as saying that Bell plans to return between Weeks 7 and 8. The Steelers are on their bye in Week 7 before hosting the Cleveland Browns in Week 8 on Oct. 28.


Oct 2 2018 - Nat Berhe
  CB Nat Berhe was placed on injured reserve, the Pittsburgh Steelers announced Tuesday. Berhe sustained a pectoral injury during Sunday night's loss to the Baltimore Ravens. The 27-year-old has collected three tackles in four games this season.


Oct 2 2018 - Cameron Heyward
  DE Cameron Heyward is tired of seeing the Pittsburgh Steelers' defense shredded by the opposition. The Steelers (1-2-1) rank near the bottom of the league in most defensive categories and they have yielded 449 yards or more in each of the last three games. Pittsburgh ranks 30th in yards allowed per game (420.5), 26th in points permitted (29.0) and 25th in yards per play surrendered to an opponent (6.0). Heyward, who is a defensive captain, said that the team needs to focus on "assignment football and being more accountable.""It's about believing in the defense," the defensive end said, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "I'm not for big speeches. I look for guys to step up. The kitchen is hot right now, and everyone is looking to get out, so we have to get to work and settle it down. Either buy in, or don't get on the field. Our defense is built on everyone doing their 1/11th. That's the way it's always been, and we have to get back to that."


Oct 1 2018 - Terrell Edmunds
  S Terrell Edmunds recorded his first career fumble recovery near Pittsburgh's end zone of the second quarter of Sunday's game.


Oct 1 2018 - Mike Hilton
  DB Mike Hilton missed Sunday night's game with an elbow injury.


Oct 1 2018 - Darrius Heyward-Bey
  WR Darrius Heyward-Bey sustained an ankle injury during Sunday night's game.


Oct 1 2018 - Vince Williams
  LB Vince Williams suffered a hamstring injury on Sunday. Williams exited the game during the second half of Pittsburgh's 26-14 loss and did not return.


Oct 1 2018 - Antonio Brown
  WR Antonio Brown caught five passes for 62 yards and scored his second touchdown in as many weeks.


Oct 1 2018 - Le'Veon Bell
  RB Le'Veon Bell is expected to report during Week 7, the Steelers' bye week, according to an ESPN report on Monday. Bell, who has not yet signed or reported to the team after it franchise-tagged him for the second-straight season this offseason, would miss two more games but return for the Oct. 28 game in Pittsburgh against Cleveland if the report is accurate. The Steelers, who had 19 rushing yards on Sunday in a loss to Baltimore, are also reportedly exploring trade options.


Oct 1 2018 - Ben Roethlisberger
  QB Ben Roethlisberger experienced a tale of two halves during Sunday's 26-14 setback to the Baltimore Ravens. After throwing for 224 yards in the first half, Roethlisberger saw the Steelers' offense muster just 47 yards in the second half. All told, Pittsburgh (1-2-1) rushed for just 19 yards and converted just 2 of 12 third-down opportunities. "I didn't make enough throws and we didn't convert first downs," the 36-year-old Roethlisberger said. "We were terrible on third downs. That's on me. We didn't make enough plays in the second half."


Sep 30 2018 - Antonio Brown
  WR Antonio Brown isn't thrilled with just being targeted the third most times this season. A six-time Pro Bowl selection, Brown cited his impressive resume for his need to have more on his plate. For a point of reference, he has been targeted 42 times in three games. "My statistics are already there. I've already done everything from a statistical point," the 30-year-old Brown said. "Obviously, it's out of my control. I can't throw it to myself. But what's important is we continue to win. I'm getting a lot of respect out there. Guys are doubling me, tripling me. But what's new? We've got to continue to win. Winning is most important. Obviously I think I'm the top-rated receiver from 2010 (among) who's in the league. It's all about winning at this point."


Sep 30 2018 - Le'Veon Bell
  RB Le'Veon Bell is being put up for trade. The Steelers have informed teams interested in Bell that the asking price is at least a second-round draft pick in addition to another a "good" player, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported on Sunday. For Bell to be traded, he would have to sign his $14.54 million franchise tender. That move must be done since the Steelers can not trade him until the tender he is currently under contract.


Sep 26 2018 - Vance McDonald
  TE Vance McDonald is healthy, and the Steelers have another weapon for their offense. McDonald missed the opener against Cleveland with a foot injury, but he has seven receptions for 138 yards over the last two games, including 112 yards and a touchdown in the 30-27 victory over the Buccaneers.


Sep 26 2018 - JuJu Smith-Schuster
  WR JuJu Smith-Schuster did not practice on Wednesday because of an abdomen injury.


Sep 26 2018 - Mike Hilton
  CB Mike Hilton, who hyper-extended his elbow against the Buccaneers, did not practice in Wednesday. His arm was in a sling.


Sep 26 2018 - Marcus Gilbert
  OL Marcus Gilbert, who missed the Buccaneers game with a hamstring injury, was a full participant in practice on Wednesday.


Sep 26 2018 - David DeCastro
  OL David DeCastro, who missed the last two games with a hand injury, also was a full participant Wednesday.
