  Steelers | Pittsburgh's injury report for Week 2    Fri Sep 18, 03:33 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers OL Stefen Wisniewski (chest) and OG David DeCastro (knee) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 2 against the Denver Broncos. QB Ben Roethlisberger (coach's decision), WR Diontae Johnson (toe), WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee), RB James Conner (ankle), C Maurkice Pouncey (coach's decision), OT Alejandro Villanueva (illness) and DE Stephon Tuitt (Achilles) practiced in full Friday, Sept. 18, and no longer appear on the injury report.

Footballguys view: The Steelers will be starting Kevin Dotson and Chuks Okorafor on the offensive line against the Broncos. They have used up their depth on the offensive line and we are only headed into Week 2. This could be a problem as we get further into the season.

  Steelers | James Conner good to go for Week 2    Fri Sep 18, 02:43 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (ankle) was taken off the injury report Friday, Sept. 18, clearing the path for him to play in Week 2 against the Denver Broncos.

Footballguys view: Conner will start but Benny Snell should get mixed in and Conner should feel pressure to perform after Snell looked so good in his absence last week. Conner is just a boom/bust RB2/Flex this week vs Denver.

  Steelers | James Conner optimistic about status    Fri Sep 18, 12:50 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (ankle) said Friday, Sept. 18, that things are 'definitely trending in the right direction' for Week 2 after practicing Wednesday and Thursday.

Footballguys view: If Conner is active it probably just functions to keep both him and Benny Snell on our benches until this situation resolves itself. Whether Conner was out due to an injury or something else, Snell showed enough for the Steelers to be open to making a change at starting running back if the performances don't change dramatically.

  Steelers | Full practice for JuJu Smith-Schuster    Thu Sep 17, 04:59 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 17.

Footballguys view: Smith-Schuster should have a field day against a weak Broncos secondary on Sunday. So long as QB Ben Roethlisberger is healthy, Smith-Schuster will have plenty of fantasy relevance.

  Steelers | Diontae Johnson returns to practice    Thu Sep 17, 04:58 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (toe) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 17.

Footballguys view: Johnson should be able to play against the Broncos. They have a weak secondary and not much of a pass rush to note. That makes the Steelers passing game a nice play in Week 2, Johnson specifically as a 'what the heck' flex.

  Steelers | James Conner practices in full Thursday    Thu Sep 17, 04:09 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (ankle) practiced returned to a full practice Thursday, Sept. 17.

Footballguys view: Things change pretty quickly around here. Conner did not participate in practice on Wednesday and is a full participant on Thursday. He's supposed to be the team's lead back if healthy but Benny Snell looked better in relief of Conner against the Giants in Week 1. Perhaps the Steelers split touches to keep Conner fresh. Watch to see what he can do in Friday's practice.

  Steelers | JuJu Smith-Schuster sits out Wednesday    Wed Sep 16, 04:50 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 16.

Footballguys view: Smith-Schuster will need to get a full practice in on Friday if he can. The Broncos secondary is not good and they're now missing no.1 CB A.J. Bouye with a shoulder injury. That means Smith-Schuster could go off on the Broncos in Week 2.

  Steelers | James Conner misses practice    Wed Sep 16, 04:47 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 16.

Footballguys view: Mike Tomlin said they would 'leave the light on' for Conner. Benny Snell should be the lead back against the Broncos in Week 2. We consider him a RB2 against a Broncos defense that is easier to pass on than run on.

  Steelers | James Conner not ruled out    Tue Sep 15, 12:39 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (ankle) won't be ruled out for Week 2, according to head coach Mike Tomlin, who said they'll leave the light on for him.

Footballguys view: Tomlin channeling his inner 'Motel 6' guy here. The Steelers were able to run the ball successfully with Benny Snell. He's a hot waiver wire pickup while Conner deals with this ankle injury. The Steelers also have Jaylen Samuels and Anthony McFarland to get some work in the backfield if need be.

Pittsburgh Steelers OG David DeCastro (knee) did not participate in practice for a second straight day Friday, Sept. 11. WR Diontae Johnson (foot) was upgraded to a full practice.

Footballguys view: No worries about Johnson this week after he missed the first practice. He's a boom/bust WR3/Flex with a great matchup against a suspect Giants secondary.
