Steelers Injury Report: Roethlisberger Ends Week As Questionable, Harrison Out

The Pittsburgh Steelers have now wrapped up their final practice of the week and their Friday injury report shows that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s home game against the Cleveland Browns. Roethlisberger, who suffered a sprained left foot this past Sunday in the fourth quarter…

Steelers Film Room: Cleveland Browns’ Defensive Scouting Report

This year, Jon Ledyard and I will be collaborating our scouting reports. We’ll play to our strengths – he’ll be focusing on the individuals while I’ll be looking at overall scheme. These reports will be broken down into two articles, one for offense and one for defense. Our reports for…

Haley Comfortable With Todman Right Now, Not So Much With Pead

Even though Pittsburgh Steelers starting running back DeAngelo Williams appears to be on track to play this coming Sunday in the team’s home game against the Cleveland Browns after missing Wednesday’s practice with some inflammation in one of his feet, it’s obvious that the team can’t keep expecting the 32-year-old…

Steelers Deep Pass Defense Must Improve Starting This Sunday

Much like his predecessor Dick LeBeau, Pittsburgh Steelers defensive coordinator Keith Butler believes that in order for his unit to be successful, they must stop the run, tackle the catch and don’t get beat deep. While the 2015 version of the Steelers defense has done well against the run for…

Todd Haley Doesn’t Rule Out Seeing Will Johnson at Running Back

Will Johnson isn’t going away without a fight. Ok, maybe that is some hyperbole. This isn’t Matt Damon getting off Mars in The Martain. But as we’ve written, and you’ve certainly noticed, Johnson has lost his role in the Pittsburgh Steelers’ offense. “I feel good about our backs. The other thing…


Steve McLendon

Butler Explains McLendon’s Lack Of Playing Time Against Raiders

This past Sunday in the Pittsburgh Steelers home win over the Oakland Raiders, nose tackle Steve McLendon played a season-low 12 snaps as the team’s nickel package was on the field for most of the game. During his weekly talk with the media on Thursday, Steelers defensive coordinator Keith Butler…

Keith Butler Attributes Lackluster Performance To Poor Practice

Practice is the part of the week we can’t see. But to Keith Butler, it played a role in the Pittsburgh Steelers’ allowing 35 points to the Oakland Raiders Sunday. “We weren’t as sharp mentally as we should have been,” Butler told Missi Matthews in the weekly Coordinator’s Corner segment. “Some…


Jarvis Jones

Steelers Film Room: Jarvis Jones Vs Raiders

At this point in the season, it’s safe to say that Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker Jarvis Jones is a starter only by virtue of title, much as was the case last season when it was Arthur Moats and James Harrison rotating at his spot. While the snap counts have not…

AFC Playoff Picture: Steelers Enter Weekend In Seventh Place

The Buffalo Bills were able to tighten things up some in the AFC playoff race Thursday night thanks to their 22-17 road win over the New York Jets. The Bills are now 5-4 on the season through nine games with Thursday’s win and they have now jumped both the Jets…

Landry Jones Will Find More Hospitable Surroundings In Second Start

While Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger may have practiced in a limited capacity in yesterday’s practice, and is reportedly comfortably ahead of schedule, already unexpectedly out of his walking boot, the smart money figures to remain on third-year quarterback Landry Jones making his second start of his career on Sunday…


Darrius Heyward-Bey

Steelers Film Room: Darrius Heyward-Bey Vs Raiders

It was assumed that when the Pittsburgh Steelers activated Martavis Bryant from suspension, that would essentially spell the end of Darrius Heyward-Bey as a significant offensive contributor. That is how it started, but the veteran has been seeing more time the past couple of weeks. On Sunday, Heyward-Bey logged 22…


DeAngelo Williams

Time Would Be Now To Lessen Load On DeAngelo Williams

Pittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams is coming off a career game, in which he recorded the most yards from scrimmage (225) and touches (29) in a single game spanning the length of his 10-year career. He is also 32 years old and suffered from some inflammation in his foot…


Roosevelt Nix

Steelers Film Room: Roosevelt Nix Vs Raiders

Pittsburgh Steelers fullback Roosevelt Nix admittedly receives a disproportionate amount of attention relative to his role on the team, considering his snaps. I will admit that he is not just a fan favorite, as Alex Kozora wrote about yesterday; he is also a favorite among the writers here. But he…
