The Steelers are nearly at full strength entering today’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Here are Pittsburgh’s inactives this week.  After having an emergency appendectomy just hours before the Pittsburgh Steelers Week 10 game against the New Orleans Saints, Minkah Fitzpatrick was ruled out last week.

How Minkah Fitzpatrick is returning so fast from appendicitis

The Steelers All-Pro was deemed out after a bout with appendicitis.

The Steelers will finally have their three safeties available vs. the Bengals

The Steelers will finally have their three safeties available vs. the Bengals

Photo by Justin K. Aller/ The Pittsburgh Steelers will finally have their three safeties available to them in Week 11 when they host the Cincinnati Bengals. The moment the Pittsburgh Steelers decided to sign Damontae Kazee to a one-year contract shortly after the 2022 NFL Draft, fans wondered how he would fit with the defense. After all, the team not only gave Minkah Fitzpatrick a big-money deal, but brought back Terrell Edmunds too. Three safeties make sense for depth, but Kazee was a player who had the pedigree of a starter. When fans started to dig deeper into the...

FILM ROOM: How the Steelers blanketed the Saints without Minkah Fitzpatrick

Photo by Mark Alberti/Icon Sportswire via Teryl Austin must have been one happy camper watching this one back. Some semblance of football returned to the Steel City last Sunday, and it was rather refreshing to watch. Of course, Matt Canada’s offense deserves its flowers. The Steelers generated six plays of over 20 yards for the first time in nearly two years, eclipsing 200 yards on the ground as well. Despite an up-and-down game from Kenny Pickett, Najee Harris, Jaylen Warren and Pickett’s legs all came up significantly big. However, in this era (and really all...

Bengals vs. Steelers injury report: Minkah Fitzpatrick returns, Ja’Marr Chase remains sidelined

Photo by Dylan Buell/ One of Pittsburgh’s top defenders is practicing again. There weren’t too many changes for the Cincinnati Bengals’ injury report. Ja’Marr Chase (hip), Dax Hill (shoulder), and Josh Tupou (calf) all did not practice for a second consecutive day, and D’Ante Smith (illness) and Stanley Morgan (personal) weren’t on the field either. La’el Collins also resumed practicing after his rest day. Chase sent out an encouraging tweet earlier in the day indicating good news regarding his recovery, but it doesn’t seem like he’ll play this week...

Fitzpatrick returns to practice after appendectomy, 'We'll see' about Sunday

Minkah Fitzpatrick underwent an appendectomy five days ago. Yet, somehow, he actually has a chance to suit up when the Steelers host the Bengals on Sunday afternoon at Acrisure Stadium. And, those chances only went up when he returned as a full participant in Thursday's practice at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex.

The Pittsburgh Steelers were able to break a two-game losing streak Sunday in Week 10 when the beat the New Orleans Saints 20-10 at Acrisure Stadium. The win felt great, and many have been calling it the most complete win of the season; however, there weren’t a lot of wins to choose from when you look at the entirety of the regular season.
