  Steelers | Jarvis Jones will not play    Tue Nov 25, 02:38 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers LB Jarvis Jones (wrist) will not play in the team's Week 13 game, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. Tomlin said Jones could play at the end of the three week window the team has to get Jones into the lineup. 'It could come soon. It could come at the end of the three weeks,' Tomlin said of adding Jones to the 53-man roster. 'Really more than anything it's about him getting acclimated to the cast that he's playing in and us getting a level of comfort with his overall execution with it.'

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell will see all action he can    Thu Nov 20, 09:20 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will receive as many carries as he can handle, according to offensive coordinator Todd Haley.

Footballguys view: We could see this coming with LaGarrette Blount released, though a lot of that was also because he walked off the field like a petulant toddler. Bell is on a tear right now and should be a solid RB1 the rest of the year.

  Steelers | Add LaDarius Perkins to practice squad    Thu Nov 20, 03:27 AM

The Pittsburgh Steelers added RB LaDarius Perkins to their practice squad on Wednesday, Nov. 19. He is an undrafted rookie out of Mississippi State who previously was in the Packers' training camp this summer.

Footballguys view: Perkins was an interesting college player who is swift and can work well as a receiver out of the backfield. Our very own Cecil Lammey was impressed by Perkins during the week of practice for the 2014 Shrine Game earlier this year. Fantasy owners in super deep dynasty leagues should take note.

  Steelers | Promote Josh Harris    Tue Nov 18, 03:02 PM

The Pittsburgh Steelers promoted RB Josh D. Harris to the 53-man roster Tuesday, Nov. 18.

Footballguys view: This moves corresponds with the release of LeGarrette Blount. We're not expecting much from Harris in a reserve role for the Steelers.


  Steelers | Interested in Ben Tate?    Tue Nov 18, 02:32 PM

Free-agent RB Ben Tate (Browns) may already have drawn interest from the Pittsburgh Steelers after being released by the Cleveland Browns Tuesday, Nov. 18. A Steelers staff member reportedly called a Cleveland Browns staff member asking about Tate's release.

Footballguys view: We could see this happening. The Steelers have a need behind Le'Veon Bell since they themselves released LeGarrette Blount on Tuesday. Tate is out of a job for now, but it won't be long before some team takes a chance on the veteran back.

  Steelers | Release LeGarrette Blount    Tue Nov 18, 01:29 PM

The Pittsburgh Steelers released RB LeGarrette Blount Tuesday, Nov. 18.

Footballguys view: There were rumblings out of Pittsburgh that players wanted Blount gone because he was bad in the locker room. Blount was unhappy with his limited role in Pittsburgh, and he may find it difficult to latch on with another team. We'll see how many teams show interest in the big power back.

  Steelers | Martavis Bryant shut down    Tue Nov 18, 12:46 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant, who had six touchdowns in his first four games entering Week 11, was held to just two catches (five targets) and 11 yards against the Tennessee Titans Monday, Nov. 17.

Footballguys view: Bryant had two end zone targets against the Titans, but he couldn't haul either pass in. The role is still there for the rookie to come through as a what the heck flex each week for fantasy owners.

  Steelers | Antonio Brown has impressive work ethic    Thu Nov 6, 04:04 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown, who leads the NFL in catches (71) and receiving yards (996), has an incredible work ethic around the team headquarters. Twice a week he'll go to the gym after a full day at the team's facilities. 'His work ethic and demeanor and attitude are just unbelievable,' QB Ben Roethlisberger said of Brown.

Footballguys view: Brown has been outstanding this season and helped the team get over not having Emmanuel Sanders anymore. He has had 100 yards or better five out of nine weeks and scored three touchdowns in the last two games as well. The Jets have absolutely nobody who can cover him and Brown seems poised for another big WR1 day.

  Steelers | Heath Miller practices    Thu Nov 6, 04:00 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 6.

Footballguys view: Miller can be hit or miss, but this is a great matchup--not only do the Jets normally get torched by tight ends because their linebackers can't hang with them, but the team has no secondary. We don't expect totals like the 114 yard, one touchdown performance against Indianapolis, but a very solid TE2 day makes sense.

  Steelers | Martavis Bryant adding to offense    Tue Nov 4, 02:33 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant has three touchdown catches in his first two NFL games, and he has provided the offense with a spark as a bid-bodied receiver that could become the No. 2 behind WR Antonio Brown.

Footballguys view: The rookie only has 10 catches this year....but five of them are for touchdowns. Bryant is a great option in the red zone who can exploit weaknesses in opposing secondaries.
