Status, Role Uncertain For Markus Wheaton

It appears as though Pittsburgh Steelers fourth-year wide receiver Markus Wheaton may be a game-time decision to make his 2016 debut this afternoon against the Bengals, after he missed the season opener with a shoulder injury, and in fact was sidelined for much of the preseason and through training camp….
