Running back Le'Veon Bell (foot), as expected, didn't practice again on Thursday and he has already been ruled out for the Sunday season opener against the Tennessee Titans.
Limited for a second straight day were fullback Will Johnson (hamstring) and tight end Heath Miller (knee). Like Bell, Miller will also be sidelined Sunday as he continues to rehab his surgically repaired knee.
As for Johnson, the fullback told Jim Wexell of Steel City Insider that there is a possibility that he won't be able to play Sunday. Johnson injured his hamstring in the preseason finale and is still not one hundred percent.

Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu appears to be the healthiest he's been in several seasons, and the team will need him to remain that way in 2013 if they expect to make a run at a seventh Lombardi Trophy. With that being said, defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau said Thursday during his talk with the media that just because Polamalu is in the lineup, it doesn't mean...
The Pittsburgh Steelers drafted defensive end Cameron Heyward in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft and with this now being his third season, he is expected to play a lot more than he has in his first two seasons. Head coach Mike Tomlin talked about the Ohio State product Tuesday during his press conference.
"We feel very good about Cam Heyward," said Tomlin. "We...

The Pittsburgh Steelers begin their season this Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. The preseason was very disappointing for the Steelers so it’s not much of a stretch to say that the same is to be said for the regular season. This season is poised to be a long and hard...
The Steelers did something that doesn't happen often in Pittsburgh, they missed the playoffs. They've made some changes on offense, will they be enough to move forward?
After postings a record of 164-92 last season, I'm ready to breakthrough to 70% this season.
We've started off on the right foot by getting the Broncos game right.
Here's a look...

With a few days now gone by since the final 53-man roster was first tallied and the Pittsburgh Steelers seemingly done making roster moves, it certainly appears that journeyman offensive lineman Guy Whimper is here to stay, at least for now.
So what exactly does that mean for the 2013 season?
As it currently stands, it should mean virtually nothing, barring injury...
Season 4, Episode 16 of The Terrible Podcast is up and co-host David Todd and I start the show off by talking about the injured players the Pittsburgh Steelers have heading into the season and also discuss the most recent transactions made since our last show.
Head coach Mike Tomlin held his first press conference of the regular season on Tuesday so we briefly recap a few of the...
The Pittsburgh Steelers decided that they need a significant upgrade at the running back position during this spring’s NFL Draft. They selected the prolific scoring machine, Le’Veon Bell with hopes he would become the team’s every down back, something unique in today’s NFL game.
Bell appeared in just one NFL preseason game and sustained a foot injury. Originally thought of...
After a brief hiatus, I’m back with my feature ‘Three Questions With….’ which is an opportunity for me to ask journalists, draft gurus, radio personalities and a variety of fans questions about the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Today’s guest is a long-time follower of mine on Twitter (and I of her) who can hold her own in any sports-related discussion and especially about the Steelers...
The season is not getting off to a good start for Pittsburgh Steelers fullback Will Johnson, who will more than likely sit out the Sunday season opener at Heinz Field against the Tennessee Titans with a hamstring injury that he suffered in the preseason finale against the Carolina Panthers.
With Will Johnson likely to be sidelined, the Steelers might very well use a fullback by committee...
Following their 8-8 finish last season, Ben Roethlisberger figures to have his work cut out for him as he attempts to lead the Pittsburgh Steelers back to the playoffs.
Without a go-to workhorse in the backfield and possibly two of his top receivers from 2012, Roethlisberger will try to help the Steelers win their 11th straight home opener Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.
Even though Steelers tight end Heath Miller has been removed from the physically unable to perform list, he still doesn’t know when he’ll get back on the field.
Removing tight end Heath Miller from the physically unable to perform list also removed the restrictions he was under by NFL rules, which do not permit those on PUP to participate in any team drills.
When a NFL team leaves an injured player off the physically
unable to perform list to start the regular season, they are counting on that
player to return before the start of Week 6.
That is exactly what the Pittsburgh Steelers are hoping for with tight
end, Heath Miller.
Alper of NBCSports reports that Miller, who is trying to come back from a
torn anterior cruciate ligament...
