  Steelers | Dwayne Haskins has a shot    Wed Jan 19, 12:34 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Dwayne Haskins said he'll have a chance to compete for the starting quarterback position next year.

Footballguys view: The post-Roethlisberger era with the Steelers will have some struggles - especially since reports and buzz around the team indicate they will not make a play for a top-tier quarterback via trade this offseason. That means Haskins and Mason Rudolph could be their options in 2022...with maybe a rookie thrown into the mix as well.

  Steelers | PIT moving on from Ben Roethlisberger    Tue Jan 18, 12:56 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is expected to move on from the Steelers as head coach Mike Tomlin said they're proceeding with the assumption he's done in Pittsburgh.

Footballguys view: Roethlisberger hasn't made it official, but everyone is pretty sure he's done playing football. The Steelers reportedly are not going to make an aggressive move for someone like Aaron Rodgers or Russell Wilson. Instead, they might see what Dwayne Haskins or Mason Rudolph can do as the starter in 2022.

  Steelers | Kenny Pickett could be target    Sun Jan 16, 02:10 PM

Pittsburgh QB Kenny Pickett is expected to receive interest from the Pittsburgh Steelers leading up to the 2022 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: If the Steelers want to get Pickett, they'd likely have to move into the top-10 to get him. Right now, with their Wild Card playoff appearance, the Steelers are picking in the 20s. Pickett could be the no.1 quarterback off the board in the 2022 NFL draft.

  Steelers | Pittsburgh could have QB competition in 2022    Sun Jan 16, 01:46 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QBs Mason Rudolph and Dwayne Haskins may compete with a draft pick for the starting quarterback job next season since the team does not usually trade their first-round draft choices for a player like Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers or Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, according a source.

Footballguys view: This was the buzz around the Steelers about a month ago. They will see Ben Roethlisberger likely retire after this season, and then they'll see if Rudolph or Haskins has what it takes to start. We're sorry Steelers fans, but that's not a recipe for success. The buzz has been they'll roll with what they have and not trade for a big-name quarterback like Rodgers or Wilson.

  Steelers | JuJu Smith-Schuster activated from IR    Sat Jan 15, 02:28 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (shoulder) was activated from the Reserve/Injured-Designated to Return list Saturday, Jan. 15, and will play in Wild Card Weekend at the Kansas City Chiefs.

Footballguys view: Smith-Schuster is likely to be on a snap count in his first game back since injuring his shoulder in Week 5. Even if he can help a little bit, it's good news for the Steelers as they need all the help they can get against the high-powered Chiefs offense.

  Steelers | Najee Harris removed from injury report    Sat Jan 15, 12:54 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Najee Harris (elbow) was removed from the Wild Card Weekend injury report Saturday, Jan. 15, after previously being listed as questionable.

Footballguys view: A key for the Steelers could be to run the ball early and often with Harris. Using up the time of possession with long drives could keep Patrick Mahomes cold on the sidelines. The Steelers need a miracle on Sunday to beat the Chiefs in the Wild Card Round, but a healthy (ish) Harris is good news.

  Steelers | Week 19 injury report for Pittsburgh    Fri Jan 14, 02:57 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Najee Harris (elbow) was upgraded to a full practice Friday, Jan. 14, and is listed as questionable for the Wild-Card Round versus the Kansas City Chiefs. QB Ben Roethlisberger (pectoral, shoulder), CB Arthur Maulet (concussion), OT Dan Moore (ankle) and OG Trai Turner (knee) also practiced in full on Friday and no longer appear on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Roethlisberger is set up for one final game as the Steelers quarterback. It's on the road at Arrowhead Stadium, one of the toughest places to play in the NFL. We'll see if the Steelers can pull off a miracle and get the win as nobody expects them to beat the Chiefs.

  Steelers | JuJu Smith-Schuster on track to play    Fri Jan 14, 10:12 AM

Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (shoulder) had no issues after practice Thursday, Jan. 13, and he's trending toward playing in the AFC Wild Card game.

Footballguys view: There are conflicting reports on Smith-Schuster's status with some reporters around the Steelers insisting the Steelers are just "hopeful" he will play. If Smith-Schuster is able to get out there against the Chiefs in the Wild Card Round we imagine he'd be on some sort of snap count.

  Steelers | JuJu Smith-Schuster could play vs. KC    Thu Jan 13, 02:14 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (shoulder) practiced Thursday, Jan. 13, and has a chance to play in Wild Card Weekend at the Kansas City Chiefs.

Footballguys view: The Steelers activated Smith-Schuster off the IR list with the idea that he could possible be ready to go by Sunday night. They need all hands on deck against the Chiefs in the Wild Card round, and getting Smith-Schuster back would be a boost for the passing game.

  Steelers | Pittsburgh picks up victory in Week 18    Sun Jan 9, 05:58 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger went 30-for-44 for 244 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 18. WR Chase Claypool rushed for 33 yards on three carries and caught five passes for 37 yards and one touchdown on seven targets. RB Najee Harris rushed for 28 yards on 11 carries and caught four passes for 27 yards. RB Benny Snell rushed for 22 yards on 12 carries. TE Pat Freiermuth caught six passes for 53 yards on nine targets. WR Diontae Johnson caught seven passes for 51 yards on 10 targets. TE Zach Gentry caught four passes for 39 yards on five targets, while WR Ray-Ray McCloud caught four passes for 37 yards on nine targets.

Footballguys view: Roethlisberger led a stirring fourth quarter touchdown drive and overtime field goal drive to get the Steelers into the playoffs as long as the Raiders and Chargers don't tie. Harris was mostly ineffective, but getting to the corner in overtime made the game winner a chipshot. The Roethlisberger era will last one more week in Kansas City unless the painfully improbably happens in Las Vegas.
