Steelers roster bubble: Keeping five receivers or six

The Steelers are now faced with an interesting dilemma. Darrius Heyward-Bey finally got on the field and showed he was capable of playing well consistently. With Justin Brown having been worked in the slot, there's an argument to be made for keeping both of them, and six receivers on this year's roster. Just when you thought Steelers wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey couldn't do anything else to make this team, he went out and had the game he had Thursday against Carolina. And totally redeemed himself. Heyward-Bey had a game-high eight targets, making six catches for 44 yards, oftentimes...

Steelers injury report: Martavis Bryant left with separated shoulder

Depending on Bryant's recovery time, the team may need to keep six receivers on the roster for the time being. It was just what rookie wide receiver Martavis Bryant did not need. The team's fourth round pick of this past year oozes with both potential and flaws, and likely had a roster spot in hand leading into Thursday's preseason game, but no assurances of a game day helmet. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin confirmed Bryant has an AC sprain (separation) in his shoulder, and while Darrius Heyward-Bey showed a decent level of competency, likely in reps and targets Bryant would have otherwise...

Panthers vs. Steelers first half open thread

The Steelers and Panthers kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET Thursday in the final preseason game of the year for both teams. Let's be honest here, it isn't even about the opponent in this game. It's all about the last few position battles. Howard Jones vs. Chris Carter. That will probably garner the most attention. Dan McCullers vs. Nick Williams vs. Josh Mauro. How will each of them be used? Will Derek Moye or Darrius Heyward-Bey do anything to convince the Steelers to keep more than five receivers? Those are the subplots for the night, so sit back and prepare thyself to discuss en masse. Before we...

Vince Williams leaves practice with potential concussion

The second year linebacker left practice today with a possible concussion. His potential absence could have significant ramifications on the position battle at inside linebacker. Ask Darrius Heyward-Bey what a concussion can do for your chances at making the Pittsburgh Steelers' final roster. It can absolutely put you behind the proverbial 8-ball. Steelers' second year inside linebacker, Vince Williams, was helped off the practice field Tuesday with a potential concussion. Obviously, the team will have to follow protocol in the coming days to ensure that Williams is healthy enough to return...
