Pittsburgh Steelers QB Mason Rudolph (concussion) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 11, but has been ruled out for Week 6.

Footballguys view: Devlin Hodges will get the start. He was a prolific FCS passer and has some running ability, so he's worth a look in Superflex/2QB leagues or as a cheap DFS option.

  Steelers | Vance McDonald still sidelined    Thu Oct 10, 05:28 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald (shoulder) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 10.

Footballguys view: McDonald returned and he was productive last week, but he might not be ready for Sunday night's game. He has had trouble staying healthy in the past, so this isn't a shock. New acquisition Nick Vannett would start if McDonald can't go vs. the Chargers.

  Steelers | Mason Rudolph remains in protocol    Thu Oct 10, 02:51 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Mason Rudolph (concussion) is still working through the league's concussion protocol Thursday, Oct. 10, and offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner said Thursday he isn't sure who the team's starting quarterback will be in Week 6.

Footballguys view: Rudolph appeared to suffer a very serious concussion with extended loss of consciousness, so let's hope the team errs of the side of safety with their current starting quarterback. Devlin Hodges looked ready for NFL action when he relieved Rudolph last week.

  Steelers | James Washington out a few weeks    Wed Oct 9, 09:38 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington (shoulder) is expected to miss a few weeks due to a shoulder injury.

Footballguys view: Washington had a season-high three catches for 52 yards before leaving the Week 5 game against the Ravens with this shoulder injury. Without him on the field, the Steelers should turn to Johnny Holton and Ryan Switzer as the No. 3 and No. 4 options at the wide receiver position.

  Steelers | Diontae Johnson's role growing    Tue Oct 8, 07:59 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson played 55 offensive snaps in Week 5, matching the number of WR JuJu Smith-Schuster. WR James Washington played just 33 offensive snaps.

Footballguys view: Washington got banged up with a shoulder injury so we will continue to see more from Johnson. The rookie from Toledo has great upside and a player we appreciate in dynasty formats. With his current role, Johnson has flex appeal for Fantasy GMs in re-draft leagues.

  Steelers | Jaylen Samuels out a month    Tue Oct 8, 12:25 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jaylen Samuels (knee) will miss a month of action following knee surgery Tuesday, Oct. 8.

Footballguys view: The Steelers roll on with James Conner as their lead back. When he needs a breather, we could see more from rookie Benny Snell. The fourth-round pick from Kentucky is more of a downhill grinder and not the all-purpose weapon that Samuels is as a runner or receiving threat. Expect Conner to get as much work as he can handle.

  Steelers | Mason Rudolph in concussion protocol    Mon Oct 7, 02:43 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Mason Rudolph (concussion) was placed in the league's concussion protocol after being removed from the game in Week 5 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Footballguys view: Rudolph took a big hit in the game against the Ravens and was replaced by Devlin Hodges. There's no telling how long Rudolph will miss due to this concussion. He'll have to be cleared from the protocol before he gets back out there on the field. Hodges is expected to start in Week 6 against the Chargers.

  Steelers | Devlin Hodges likely to draw Week 6 start    Mon Oct 7, 12:06 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Devlin Hodges is expected to serve as the starting quarterback in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Chargers while Mason Rudolph (concussion) recovers from the concussion he suffered in Week 5 versus the Baltimore Ravens. QB Paxton Lynch is expected to be elevated from the practice squad to serve as his backup.

Footballguys view: Expect the Chargers defense to be in a lot of lineups in Week 6. Hodges is athletic and keeps plays alive but he doesn't have the strongest arm and is limited in the throws he can make and the plays you can call.
