Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (shoulder) said Thursday, Dec. 5, that he will miss the team's Week 14 game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 4.

  Steelers | Juju Smith-Schuster iffy for Week 14    Tue Dec 3, 01:24 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Juju Smith-Schuster (knee) is questionable to play in Week 14, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Footballguys view: Fantasy GMs shouldn't like the sound of 'iffy' when it comes to Smith-Schuster's status. Many have other plans in place, and those plans may stay in place in Week 14.

  Steelers | James Conner could practice Wednesday    Tue Dec 3, 01:23 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (shoulder) has a chance to practice Wednesday, Dec. 4, and he'll be questionable this week.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on Conner's status as the week of practice goes on. Benny Snell will handle the workload as a ball-carrier while Jaylen Samuels would get looks as a receiver out of the backfield if Conner has to miss the game against the Cardinals on Sunday.

  Steelers | James Washington totals 111 yards, TD    Sun Dec 1, 05:20 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington finished with four grabs for 111 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns, including a long touchdown where he grabbed it off the lap of a defender while laying on their backs for the highlight-reel score.

Footballguys view: Washington is heating up and clearly has downfield chemistry with his new quarterback Devlin Hodges. Even if Juju Smith-Schuster returns next week, Washington will be worth a WR3/Flex look against Arizona.

  Steelers | Jaylen Samuels see nine total touches    Sun Dec 1, 05:17 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jaylen Samuels rushed seven times for 32 yards in Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns while adding two grabs for 22 yards on his two targets.

  Steelers | Benny Snell runs for 63 yards, TD    Sun Dec 1, 05:13 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Benny Snell Jr. posted 16 carries for 63 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns while adding a four-yard catch on his only target.

Footballguys view: Snell split carries with Jaylen Samuels and Kerrith Whyte early, but was the back who got all of the work when the team needed to salt away the lead. He should be a flex play against Arizona next week if James Conner is still out.

  Steelers | Devlin Hodges passes for 212 yards, TD    Sun Dec 1, 04:52 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Devlin Hodges completed 14-of-21 passes for 212 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 13 game against the Cleveland Browns, improving to 2-0 as a starter.

Footballguys view: Hodges had some poor decisions in the second half that gave the Browns a chance, but he also made the throws to help the Steelers overcome an early deficit. He'll remain the starter next week against a Cardinals team in a tailspin.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns.

Footballguys view: Diontae Johnson and James Washington will start and both are boom/bust WR3/Flex plays with new quarterback Devlin Hodges in against the Browns this week.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (shoulder) was limited in practice for a second straight day Friday, Nov. 29, and is listed as doubtful for Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns.

Footballguys view: Benny Snell should get the start and a heavy workload against the Browns this week. Consider him a high floor RB2 for Week 13.

  Steelers | JuJu Smith-Schuster sits out again    Thu Nov 28, 01:36 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) remains out of practice Thursday, Nov. 28.

Footballguys view: Smith-Schuster is out of concussion protocol but his knee issue is probably going to sideline him this week. James Washington looks like the best Steelers receiver to play this weekend vs Cleveland.

  Steelers | James Conner limited    Thu Nov 28, 01:32 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 28.

Footballguys view: Conner could get back on the field this weekend, although his last return was short-lived. Benny Snell's Week 13 fantasy outlook hinges on Conner's availability, although you shouldn't drop Snell if Conner is active.

  Steelers | James Conner sits out    Wed Nov 27, 03:31 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (shoulder) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 27.

Footballguys view: Expect to see plenty of Benny Snell at running back on Sunday against the Browns. He's a downhill grinder but can get a workload that makes him worth a flex play in Week 13.

  Steelers | JuJu Smith-Schuster misses practice    Wed Nov 27, 03:13 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 27. He has gone through the concussion protocol and has been cleared by the doctors but is still dealing with a knee injury.

Footballguys view: We doubt that Smith-Schuster sees the field against the Browns on Sunday. Look for James Washington to perhaps be the favorite target of new starting quarterback Devlin Hodges.

  Steelers | JuJu Smith-Schuster has bulky brace    Wed Nov 27, 12:16 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion, knee) is still wearing a large brace on his left knee Wednesday, Nov. 27, and it doesn't appear he'll practice.

Footballguys view: The Steelers are moving on with Devlin Hodges at quarterback. It looks like Hodges will be working without Smith-Schuster for the foreseeable future.

  Steelers | Mason Rudolph to the bench    Tue Nov 26, 12:18 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Mason Rudolph was benched in favor of QB Devlin Hodges for Week 13.

Footballguys view: Rudolph struggled mightily as the Steelers starter, and tossed five interceptions over the last two weeks. The Steelers may have had a first-round grade on Rudolph when he came out of Oklahoma State in 2018, but he's clearly not the quarterback of the future. Devlin Hodges takes over as the starter.

  Steelers | Devlin Hodges the starter    Tue Nov 26, 11:41 AM

Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Devlin Hodges was named the starter for Week 13.

Footballguys view: Hodges came off the bench and led the Steelers to victory over the Bengals last week. He's a game-manager undrafted rookie from Samford who may have a short leash as a starter.

  Steelers | Benny Snell might be in line for big role    Mon Nov 25, 09:49 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Benny Snell carried the load in Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals with RB James Conner (shoulder) sidelined. The starter Conner indicated in a radio interview that he might not be available in Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns, so Snell might be called upon again.

  Steelers | James Conner likely to continue sitting    Mon Nov 25, 09:43 PM

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (shoulder) said Monday, Nov. 25 in a radio interview that he is making progress in his return, but stabilization is an issue. 'I'm definitely making progress on it. Getting a lot more strength in there, more stabilization. It's one of those things that as a player I have to be smart with because if I continue to play without it being stable, then eventually surgery will need to be done. So, I just need to wait till I have enough stabilization and strength and that tendon gets a little bit stronger, because that's kind of what I had, a little minor setback when I tried to play versus Cleveland,' Conner said.
