 Latest Steelers Player Notes
Sep 18 2017 - Mike Hilton
  CB Mike Hilton made his first career start and tied for the team lead with eight tackles. Hilton is the team's slot cornerback after beating out veteran William Gay for the job.


Sep 18 2017 - JuJu Smith-Schuster
  WR JuJu Smith-Schuster scored a touchdown on the first reception of his NFL career, a four-yard pass from QB Ben Roethlisberger in the second quarter.


Sep 18 2017 - Bud Dupree
  OLB Bud Dupree, who missed the opener against the Browns with a shoulder injury, started against the Vikings and recorded his first sack of the season.


Sep 18 2017 - Ben Roethlisberger
  QB Ben Roethlisberger became the seventh player in NFL history to record 125 victories as a starter in the regular season, joining Tom Brady, Drew Brees, John Elway, Brett Favre, Peyton Manning and Dan Marino. He also became the seventh player in league history to record 70 home wins as a starter.


Sep 18 2017 - Stephon Tuitt
  DE Stephon Tuitt, who injured his biceps in the opener against the Browns, did not play against the Vikings. He had been listed as questionable.


Sep 18 2017 - *T.J. Watt
  Rookie OLB T.J. Watt left the Vikings game in the second quarter with a groin injury and did not return. There was no update from the team Monday about the severity of the injury.


Sep 18 2017 - Cameron Heyward
  DE Cam Heyward is back, and so, apparently, is a dominating Steelers defense. The key was the return of Heyward, the captain who missed the last nine games last season with a torn pectoral muscle. Heyward made his return to Heinz Field with a dominating performance. Heyward was credited with only six tackles, but he forced running backs to take difficult paths throughout the game and drilled Case Keenum twice to force incompletions. "I'm always fired up," said Heyward. "But this was the home opener and (I) got to play for DMR (the late Dan Rooney) in the first game he wasn't here. We missed him out there, and I thought we played with energy." Heyward said he didn't feel the need to pick up the slack for injured linemate Stephon Tuitt, insisting that it's always his job to get the unit off and running. "I'm trying to set the tone period," Heyward said. "Obviously Tuitt wasn't there but whenever we're out there as a defensive line we want to set the tempo. We want to see if they want to test us."


Sep 18 2017 - *T.J. Watt
  OLB T.J. Watt, a rookie, left in the second quarter with a groin injury.


Sep 18 2017 - Chris Hubbard
  OT Chris Hubbard started at tight end since Vance McDonald was inactive for the Steelers in a jumbo package, and later played both tackle positions in relief.


Sep 18 2017 - Le'Veon Bell
  RB Le'Veon Bell carried 27 times for 87 yards Sunday, or just four yards less than the Vikings gained as a team.


Sep 18 2017 - JuJu Smith-Schuster
  WR JuJu Smith-Schuster caught his first career touchdown catch, a 4-yard shovel pass early in the second quarter for a touchdown and 14-0 Steelers lead.


Sep 18 2017 - Martavis Bryant
  WR Martavis Bryant finished with three catches for 91 yards and a 26-yard score Sunday. Bryant found separation from cornerback Terence Newman on the crossing pattern for the first-quarter score. He also hauled in a 51-yard grab. Bryant's touchdown was his first since Jan. 9, 2016, in a playoff game against Cincinnati.


Sep 18 2017 - Ben Roethlisberger
  QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 23 of 35 passes for 243 yards and two touchdowns, both in the first half Sunday. Roethlisberger threw a 27-yard touchdown pass to Martavis Bryant to cap the Steelers' second possession. The drive was aided by Vikings defensive end Bryan Robison, who jumped offside on fourth-and-1 from the Pittsburgh 31 during what appeared to be a bluff by Roethlisberger. It was an emotional day for Heinz Field fans honoring the memory of the late owner Dan Rooney, Roethlisberger charged to midfield carrying a DMR flag upon his introduction and said he had tears in his eyes during the playing of the national anthem. "I had to snap out of it," said Roethlisberger. "The whole day was very emotional."


Sep 15 2017 - Ryan Shazier
  LB Ryan Shazier of the Steelers said the NFL fined him $25,000 for his hit on Browns quarterback DeShone Kizer during Sunday's game. Shazier delivered a diving tackle into Kizer as the rookie was sliding down to the ground and drew a 15-yard penalty. Shazier, who had seven tackles against the Browns, said he plans to appeal the fine.


Sep 14 2017 - Sean Davis
  S Sean Davis was limited Wednesday with an ankle injury, but he said he will play Sunday.


Sep 14 2017 - Bud Dupree
  OLB Bud Dupree, who missed the opener with a shoulder injury, was limited Wednesday and Thursday.


Sep 14 2017 - Vance McDonald
  TE Vance McDonald has a back injury. He did not practice Thursday after taking part in Wednesday's workout.


Sep 14 2017 - J.J. Wilcox

Sep 14 2017 - Stephon Tuitt

Sep 13 2017 - Stephon Tuitt
  DE Stephon Tuitt said there is a chance he might play against the Vikings, but he didn't practice Wednesday. Tuitt injured his left biceps early in the first quarter against the Browns and did not return.


Sep 13 2017 - Bud Dupree
  OLB Bud Dupree received a second opinion on his injured shoulder. He was limited in practice Wednesday and said he hopes to play Sunday against the Vikings.


Sep 11 2017 - Joe Haden
  CB Joe Haden won a season opener for the first time in his career. Haden, who spent his first seven seasons with the Browns before signing with the Steelers two weeks ago, was given the game ball by his new teammates.


Sep 11 2017 - Ben Roethlisberger
  QB Ben Roethlisberger moved past Fran Tarkenton for ninth place on the NFL's all-time passing list Sunday. He now has 47,077 yards.


Sep 11 2017 - Antonio Brown
  WR Antonio Brown recorded his 30th career 100-yard receiving game, passing Hines Ward, who had 29 such games in his career. He also had 14 games with 10 catches or more, which is twice as many than any other player in franchise history. Ward has seven such games.


Sep 11 2017 - Stephon Tuitt
  DE Stephon Tuitt is considered week-to-week with a biceps injury, according to a report by the NFL Network on Monday. Tuitt signed a five-year, $60 million extension Saturday and was injured in Pittsburgh's 21-18 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. The Steelers did not announce how long Tuitt will be out, but it's possible he might miss the next two games against the Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears. The 25-year-old was Pittsburgh's second-round pick in 2014. Since entering the league, Tuitt has totaled 111 tackles and 11.5 sacks in 45 regular-season games.


Sep 10 2017 - Le'Veon Bell
  RB Le'Veon Bell, in his first game after missing the preseason in a contract dispute, carried 10 times for 32 yards.


Sep 10 2017 - Joe Haden
  CB Joe Haden, who was cut by the Browns on Aug. 30, started for the Steelers. He just missed picking off a pass in the second quarter.


Sep 10 2017 - Antonio Brown
  WR Antonio Brown was targeted 11 times and caught all 11 passes for 182 yards. He went into the game with 75 catches for 1,130 yards in 11 games against the Browns, so his success in the opener was no surprise. In the past, he made most of his catches against Joe Haden, who started at cornerback for the Browns. But is now with the Steelers. He had his success on Sunday against Jamar Taylor. "He's a dynamic player," Taylor said. "He made a one-handed catch on me on a slant. We'll look at the tape. We'll get ready for Baltimore next week and next time we play Pittsburgh, we'll be ready to roll."


Sep 10 2017 - Jesse James
  TE Jesse James caught two touchdowns passes on Sunday in a win vs. the Browns.


Sep 10 2017 - Ben Roethlisberger
  QB Ben Roethlisberger threw two touchdown passes to TE Jesse James to lead the Steelers to a 21-18 victory in the season-opening game for both teams. Roethlisberger is now 21-2 as a starter against the Browns, 11-1 in Cleveland. He completed 24 of 36 passes for 263 yards and posted a 95.0 passer rating on Sunday.


Sep 9 2017 - Stephon Tuitt
  The Pittsburgh Steelers signed defensive end Stephon Tuitt to an extension through the 2022 season, the team announced. The new six-year deal is worth $61 million, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Tuitt, 24, was set to make just over $1 million in base salary in 2017, the final year of his rookie contract. He would have been a free agent in 2018. The 6-foot-6, 303-pound Tuitt, a second-round pick in 2014 out of Notre Dame, owns 108 tackles, 11.5 sacks, four pass defenses, three forced fumbles and one interception over 44 games in three seasons.


Sep 8 2017 - Bud Dupree
  OLB Bud Dupree of the Pittsburgh Steelers did not practice Friday with a shoulder injury and is listed as questionable for Sunday's season opener in Cleveland against the Browns. Dupree did not go through a full practice in the past two days. Anthony Chickillo will get the start if Dupree does not play. The 24-year-old Dupree, a first-round pick in 2015, had 4.5 sacks and 24 tackles in just seven games (four starts) last season.


Sep 6 2017 - J.J. Wilcox
  S Mike Mitchell and S J.J. Wilcox took reps with the first-team defense Wednesday. Mitchell missed all of training camp with a hamstring injury. Wilcox, acquired Sunday in a trade with Tampa Bay, was signed to add depth due to Mitchell's injury.


Sep 6 2017 - Mike Mitchell
  S Mike Mitchell and S J.J. Wilcox took reps with the first-team defense Wednesday. Mitchell missed all of training camp with a hamstring injury. Wilcox, acquired Sunday in a trade with Tampa Bay, was signed to add depth due to Mitchell's injury.


Sep 6 2017 - Martavis Bryant
  WR Martavis Bryant, who will play in a NFL game for the first time since competing in a playoff game against the Broncos in January of 2016, said he wants to become one of the dominant receivers in the league.


Sep 6 2017 - Joe Haden
  CB Joe Haden, who was signed by the Steelers last week, has chosen a new number. He will wear No. 21. Haden had to give safety Robert Golden a sum of money to obtain the new number. Golden, the Steelers' special teams captain for the past three seasons, had worn No. 21 since signing with the Steelers in 2012.


Sep 6 2017 - Stephon Tuitt
  DE Stephon Tuitt said he is close to signing a contract extension with the Steelers. Tuitt is entering the final year of his rookie contract. The Steelers want to pair Tuitt and DE Cam Heyward for a long time.


Sep 4 2017 - Le'Veon Bell
  RB Le'Veon Bell officially signed his $12.12 million franchise tender with the Steelers on Monday. Bell ended his holdout Friday when he reported to the Steelers' facility after he skipped training camp and all four preseason games in a contract dispute. The 25-year-old Bell passed his physical on Friday and now prepares for Sunday's season opener against the Browns at Cleveland. He has recovered from offseason groin surgery.


Sep 3 2017 - Terrell Watson
  RB Terrell Watson, an undrafted free agent out of Azusa Pacific, beat out veterans Knile Davis and Fitzgerald Toussaint for the final roster spot at running back. Watson is under consideration for the backup job to Le'Veon Bell because rookie third-round pick James Conner missed so much time in camp.


Sep 3 2017 - Kameron Canaday
  LS Kameron Canaday beat the odds and earned the long snapping duties over Colin Holba, whom the Steelers drafted in the sixth round of this year's draft. Holba was the only draft pick that did not make the Steelers' initial 53-man roster.


Sep 1 2017 - Martavis Bryant
  WR Martavis Bryant was officially reinstated by the NFL on Friday to participate in regular-season practices and games. Bryant was under conditional reinstatement after missing the entire 2016 season for multiple drug violations. If he fails another drug test, it could end his NFL career. Bryant has 76 receptions for 1,314 yards and 14 touchdowns in 21 regular-season games since being drafted in the fourth round in 2014.

Sep 1 2017 - Malik Golden
  S Malik Golden, an undrafted rookie, injured his groin and did not return to the game. Golden was a long shot to make the 53-man roster.


Sep 1 2017 - Jordan Dangerfield
  S Jordan Dangerfield left the game with an ankle injury and did not return. Dangerfield took reps with the first-team defense in practice earlier this week and was being considered as the starter at free safety until Mike Mitchell returns from his hamstring injury.


Sep 1 2017 - Cameron Sutton
  CB Cameron Sutton, who missed most of training camp with a lower body injury, left the final preseason game against Carolina with a right hamstring injury and did not return. The Steelers were hoping Sutton could challenge for the starting slot corner job.


Aug 30 2017 - Joe Haden
  CB Joe Haden capped a whirlwind day on Wednesday by signing a three-year, $27 million contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers, jumping from the AFC North cellar to the defending division champions in the span of a 9-to-5 day on the East Coast. Haden was released by the Cleveland Browns on Wednesday morning. But before the dinner hour arrived, Haden was signing with the Steelers, where he becomes the No. 1 cornerback on a defense that finished last season strong.


Aug 30 2017 - Joe Haden
  CB Joe Haden was released by the Browns. Haden was owed $21.6 million on the next two years of the five-year contract he signed in 2014. Cleveland VP of football operations Sashi Brown reportedly put Haden on the trading block before releasing him Wednesday.


Aug 29 2017 - Vance McDonald
  TE Vance McDonald was traded to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Tuesday. The 49ers also sent the Steelers a fifth-round draft choice, and received Pittsburgh's fourth-rounder in exchange. McDonald caught 24 passes for 391 yards and four touchdowns as the 49ers' starter last season.
