Steelers Injury Report: Secondary could get a boost in Week 5

The Pittsburgh Steelers could get some defensive help back on the field in Week 5. The Pittsburgh Steelers’ secondary has been in a constant state of flux this season. At safety, Sean Davis has been the only consistent face, with Terrell Edmunds and the oft-injured Morgan Burnett sharing duties at Strong Safety. Joe Haden has missed one of the first four games and Mike Hilton’s elbow injury had him watching on Sunday night when the Baltimore Ravens picked apart the Pittsburgh defense. Have no fear, though, the secondary could be getting a boost and hopefully some consistency for the...

Black and Gold Links: Mike Hilton hopeful to return to lineup vs. Falcons in Week 5

Time to check on the latest news surrounding the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Pittsburgh Steelers are back in the loser column after a poor performance vs. their divisional rival, the Baltimore Ravens, at Heinz Field in prime time in Week 4. With the Atlanta Falcons coming into Heinz Field for a Week-5 matchup, the Steelers will need to improve on their 1-2-1 record. Something I did last season and I’m going to start again is the Black-and-Gold Links article. This is an article where I take stories from quality news sources across the Internet, and add them here for your viewing pleasure. I...

Morgan Burnett and Mike Hilton listed among the inactives for Steelers in Week 4 vs. Ravens

While the Steelers will be without two key defensive players on Sunday they will see the return of two starters along the offensive line when they face the Baltimore Ravens Given the way the Pittsburgh Steelers’ injury report has impacted game day participation so far this season, their official list of inactive players for Week 4 is very much as expected. Any players listed as doubtful on Friday have missed the game that follows each week, and it should come as no surprise to see the Steelers have included both Morgan Burnett and Mike Hilton among the inactives for their game against...

Predicting the Steelers’ Week 4 inactive list vs. the Ravens

There could be a significant change in status for several Steelers’ players. The inactive list is a little bit harder to predict this week than in the last few. Does a player go from starting in Week 3 to inactive in week 4? Will a player be active this week for the first time this season? Each of these situations is something to look for on Sunday night. Game Status Doubtful: CB Mike Hilton (Elbow) S Morgan Burnett (Groin) Here are the possibilities to end up inactive for Week 4: Definitely: Steelers fans should feel very lucky. For the third straight week, no one has been ruled out...
Matthew Thomas received reps with the first-team in practice in preparation for the Ravens game

Matthew Thomas received reps with the first-team in practice in preparation for the Ravens game

Having only played on special teams through the first three games, Matthew Thomas might yet make his debut on defense this Sunday Despite a number of standout performances for the Pittsburgh Steelers during the preseason, very little has been seen of Matthew Thomas since he made the opening day roster. Of the 30 snaps the undrafted free agent has seen so far in 2018, all of them have come on special teams. Vince Williams and Jon Bostic have dominated the available time at linebacker, while Morgan Burnett, Terrell Edmunds and Mike Hilton have been the first names off the bench on passing...

Steelers Week 4 injury report: Mike Hilton and Morgan Burnett officially doubtful to face Ravens

While the Steelers could be without two key starters on defense, they should see the return of Marcus Gilbert and David DeCastro this Sunday The Pittsburgh Steelers should have their entire complement of starting offensive lineman when they take on the Baltimore Ravens at Heinz Field after both David DeCastro and Marcus Gilbert were full participants at practice once again on Friday. However, while it appears Pittsburgh could see two key offensive players return to action in Week 4, it looks increasingly likely that two starters on defense might be forced to miss Sunday’s game. The...

While three players were limited on Thursday, both David DeCastro and Marcus Gilbert were full participants for the second day in a row The Pittsburgh Steelers injury report was something of a mixed bag on Thursday after three players were limited in training and two key starters along the offensive line were able to practice fully for consecutive days for the first time in weeks. JuJu Smith-Schuster (abdomen), Mike Hilton (elbow) and Morgan Burnett (groin) were all limited in practice today. Maurkice Pouncey had a vet's day off. DeCastro and Gilbert both full participants for the...

During the Steelers’ big win, they had to finisht the game without cornerback Mike Hilton.
