PITTSBURGH -- The text messages bounced from old friend to old friend last week, from state to state, sharing the news that Mo Tipton had passed away.
When the news reached Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison, he had one immediate memory of his former coach at Coventry High School in Akron, Ohio.
"Coach Tipton was the first guy that ever said one day I'd be playing...
(Written by Christina L. Rivers) Concussions or traumatic brain injuries have always been a part of contact sports, especially the NFL. The league created the first set of guidelines on return-to-play rules after a medical conference was held to specifically address this type of injury. During that time, the NFL’s policy was that a player could not return to a game or practice...
The Pittsburgh Steelers take on the Cleveland Browns tonight at Heinz Field as they look to move to 10-3 on the season and inch even closer to a playoff birth. The short week went by fast and the Wednesday injury report shows that five players were ruled out and one player as doubtful. That makes the inactives for Thursday night very easy to predict with the only real choice being...
The Steelers have announced that 6 of their players are out for the game against the Browns. They only need to have 7 guys sit out for the game and Dennis Dixon never dresses so we have our inactives for the game against the Browns tomorrow.

The Pittsburgh Steelers earned a closer than expected win Thursday night against the Cleveland Browns, 14-3, but the big thing to come out of tonight's game is the long-term status of Ben Roethlisberger's left ankle. Roethlisberger was sandwiched between two Browns players on a sack in the second quarter and had a nasty turn of his left ankle.
After x-rays of Roethlisberger...
Seven Steelers, including outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, have been ruled out for tomorrow night's game because of injuries.
The ankle injury to Ben Roethlisberger put a large damper on what started out to be a big night for him. He engineered a TD drive on the opening possession for the sixth time in nine games and completed 8 of 9 passes for 102 yards and an 11-yard TD to Jerricho Cotchery before he was hurt. But, after he returned, he had one TD pass overturned by replay and another for 79 yards to Antonio Brown.

-B- Not only is Sidney Crosby back on the shelf, but LB LaMarr Woodley is out for tomorrow's game against the Browns. Woodley reinjured his hamstring during his return last week. Hopefully one more week off will do the trick. Emmanuel Sanders, Jonathan Dwyer, Chris Carter and Arnaz Battle have been ruled out as well. -B- Brett Keisel on Chris Hoke: "It's going to be...
This had all the makings of a trap game. Or it would have, if we all didn't remember a stunning loss to the Browns on Thursday Night Football in 2009. After both teams scored on their opening drives, you settled in for a back-and-forth struggle for a win in the standings. Little did you know it would be the last scoring you'd see until Antonio Brown changed the headlines...
