The Pittsburgh Steelers announced Wednesday morning that they had signed tackle Joe Long and guard Justin Cheadle to the practice squad to fill the spots that previously belonged to Toney Clemons and John Malecki.
In addition to those signings, Bob Labriola now reports that former FSU wide receiver Bert Reed has also been signed to the practice squad and to make room for him cornerback...
Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Keenan Lewis is one player that I couldn't have been more wrong about this season. Lewis proclaimed back in May that this would be a big year for him and right now his prediction is looking spot on with 5 games remaining in the regular season.
Heading into Week 13 Lewis has recorded 53 total tackles and is tied for the league lead in passes defended...
Assuming the Pittsburgh Steelers don't turn the ball over 8 times this coming Sunday, they still will have a tough chore in beating the Baltimore Ravens should quarterback Ben Roethlisberger not play. Hell, even if Roethlisberger does play it will be a tough chore, as it always is.
Do the Steelers have a chance to win if Charlie Batch winds up starting? Sure they do, but even...
The Steelers looked like one of the more balanced teams in the NFL a few weeks ago, now they may miss the playoffs.
If anyone still doubts the importance of the QB position, look no further than the Steelers. This team can't do anything on offense since Big Ben went down. The running game is suffering, the Wideouts can't catch and the backups have been less than...
A judge has awarded $1.2 million to Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Larry Foote, who says he was the victim of bogus valet contracts at Detroit-area shopping malls.
Attorney Jim Acho says Foote invested more than $400,000 with two men who claimed to have parking contracts at Somerset Collection in Troy and Twelve Oaks Mall in Novi. He says there were no such deals.
Foote, a Detroit...
Yesterday I mentioned Pittsburgh Steelers’ Head Coach Mike Tomlin was in a no-win situation heading into the contest with the Baltimore Ravens this Sunday. I realized a long time ago that Steelers’ QB Ben Roethlisberger was in a similar situation regarding his health.
Earlier today Roethlisberger spoke to the media before practice and talked about having some pain and discomfort...
Many people figured that going into the 2012 NFL season, it could be the final year we see Rashard Mendenhall in a Pittsburgh Steelers uniform. It had little to do with the fact that he was coming off of a major knee injury from the end of last season, but the team made little effort to lock him up to a long term deal even before the injury. With Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman in...
Ben Roethlisberger will not play Sunday in Baltimore, meaning Charlie Batch will make his second consecutive start at quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Roethlisberger threw briefly early in practice Friday but was in a sweat suit watching by the time practice ended. He will miss a third consecutive game since sustaining a sprained right shoulder and a dislocated rib in a...
A busy day for the Pittsburgh Steelers: Roethlisberger update, Wallace & Mendenhall on their demotions; Troy Polamalu back on the field.
Could there be a Pennsylvania football curse? The Pittsburgh Steelers could be on pace to sink as fast as the Philadelphia Eagles. The two situations are comprised of very different circumstances yet their end result could be the same in that neither team will cash in their post-season expectations. Despite holding out hope that injured [...]

According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, there’s a 35 percent chance that Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will play this Sunday against the Ravens.
Source says Ben Roethlisberger struggled throwing in one practice period involving him yesterday and only 35 percent chance he plays Ravens

(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) By DAVID GINSBURG AP Sports Writer Less than two weeks ago, the Baltimore Ravens frustrated fleet-footed quarterback Byron Leftwich and defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers to take control of the AFC North.
In the rematch Sunday, the Ravens will face a quarterback with a different skill set. Whether it will be soft-tossing Charlie Batch or the gritty...
