News you need to know

General News (Fri Sep 18): practiced fully on Friday and is not on the team's injury report. He will be available to play this week.

General News (Thu Sep 17): practiced fully on Thursday. 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 | 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.

Our 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.
