Five ruled out by Steelers for Sunday game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) Safety Ross Ventrone (hamstring) has been added to the list of Steelers who have been ruled out for the Sunday game against the host Jets. He was limited in the last two practices.

Already deemed out were fellow safeties Shamarko Thomas (hamstring), Troy Polamalu (knee), linebacker Ryan Shazier (ankle) and cornerback Ike Taylor (forearm).

The injury-related probables are linebacker Jason Worilds (abdomen) and wideout Darrius Heyward-Bey (hamstring).


Group of Steelers contribute to Sunday victory


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Several Steelers chipped in to an explosive offensive performance Sunday against Indianapolis.

Among them was receiver Lance Moore, who took a huge hit in snagging a 26-yarder late in the first quarter and finished with two catches for 33 yards. Fullback Will Johnson added two catches for 22 yards while wideout Darrius Heyward-Bey managed one reception for 16 yards and a fumble. Running back LeGarrette Blount pitched in with six carries for 21 yards and two catches for 11 yards.


Steelers strong physically for game against Buccaneers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2014) Cornerback Ike Taylor and linebacker Ryan Shazier are out, but the Steelers are otherwise in good shape for their Sunday clash against visiting Tampa Bay. Only one other player on their Friday injury report has been designated any worse than probable. That is guard Ramon Foster (ankle), who is questionable.

The probables are running back Dri Archer (ankle) and wideout Darrius Heyward-Bey (ankle). Standouts such as quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, tight end Heath Miller, safety Troy Polamalu and defensive end Brett Keisel are all probable with non-injury related issues.

Heyward-Bey worked with the backups and caught a 22-yard pass from Bruce Gradkowski in the fourth quarter. He caught all three of his targets for 54 yards and a touchdown, averaging 18.0 yards per grab.

Heyward-Bey is struggling to find a prominent role with his new club. He finished last season with just 29 catches for 309 yards and one touchdown for Indianapolis.

Steelers working on Darrius Heyward-Bey's confidence


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/14/2014) Steelers receivers coach Richard Mann told the official team website that he's focused on getting Darrius Heyward-Bey to feel better about his game heading into the season. Heyward-Bey has posted one decent season since being taken seventh overall by the Raiders in 2009. He's competing for playing time with the Steelers this summer. 

"What we are doing with him is just trying to get his confidence up," Mann said. "He has speed. He has talent. We'll teach him what to do, and hopefully we can put him in a position to succeed with his speed and intelligence. We will take advantage of what he does best."


Haley confident in Steelers receiving corps


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/24/2014) The Steelers lost Emmanuel Sanders and Jerricho Cotchery this offseason as free agents, but offensive coordinator Todd Haley is confident in his group this year, reports ESPN.

In losing Sanders and Cotchery, the Steelers have to replace 1,342 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns, which could be hard to do.

"It's as deep a group as I've been around from top to bottom," Haley said. "I think some guys that are pretty good football players probably won't make the team."

The Steelers have Antonio Brown as their No. 1 option, and Markus Wheaton is penciled in as the other starter. Lance Moore was signed to take Cotchery's role as the No. 3 receiver, and rookie Martavis Bryant is competing with Darrius Heyward-Bey for the No. 4 spot. Justin Brown is also in the mix for a role.


Steelers choose WR Martavis Bryant in Round 4


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2014) With the 118th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers selected wide receiver Martavis Bryant from Clemson.

Standing at 6-foot-3, 211 pounds, Bryant dazzled at the combine with a 4.42 40-yard time. He had 42 receptions for 828 yards and seven touchdowns in 2013. He will join a crowded receiving group that includes Antonio Brown, Lance Moore, Markus Wheaton and Darrius Heyward-Bey.

Steelers still plan to draft a receiver early


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2014) Despite signing free agent receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey, the Steelers "will still take a wide receiver with one of their first three picks" in the draft, reports ESPN.com. Pittsburgh lost Emmanuel Sanders and Jerricho Cotchery in free agency while adding Lance Moore and Heyward-Bey.

The Steelers hope second-year wideout Markus Wheaton takes a big step forward and develops into a starter opposite Antonio Brown.

Heyward-Bey caught 29 passes and one touchdown and was eventually passed over for playing time by undrafted free agents Griff Whalen and Da'Rick Rogers.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/10/2014) The Colts appear set to have starting nose tackle Aubrayo Franklin (rest) and strong safety LaRon Landry (concussion) in their lineup Saturday at New England. Both practiced fully on Friday and have been listed as probable.

A hamstring injury, however, will keep wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey sidelined. He has been ruled out. Heyward-Bey has been a non-factor all season with just 29 catches for 309 yards and one touchdown.

Hamstring still an issue for Darrius Heyward-Bey


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1/4/2014) Colts wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey made no impact in Saturday's Wild Card playoff game against the Chiefs, as his balky hamstring forced him from the game before he recorded a single catch.

The Colts won the game, 45-44, so Heyward-Bey has another week to get through practice with the injury. They will play either the Broncos or Patriots next weekend. 


Darrius Heyward-Bey able to play through hamstring issue


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/3/2014) The Colts have listed 10 players as probable for the playoff clash Saturday against Kansas City. All have been full practice participants throughout the week aside from wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey, who was limited with a hamstring pull on Wednesday. The only other offensive probable is lineman Mike McGlynn (elbow).

The defensive probables are defensive backs Sergio Brown (groin), Darius Butler (quad), Vontae Davis (groin) and Greg Toler (groin), linemen Ricky Jean Francois (foot) and Cory Redding (shoulder) and linebackers Bjoern Werner (ankle) and Robert Mathis (rest).

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Darrius Heyward-Bey has 23 receiving yards


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2013) Colts wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey caught two passes for 23 yards in Sunday's 42-28 loss to the Bengals. He was targeted three times. 

Both Da'Rick Rogers and LaVon Brazill caught two touchdowns in Week 14, as Andrew Luck clearly favored the two youngsters, especially in the second half, when the Colts were going pass-heavy to play catch-up.

Heyward-Bey also limped off the field on the Colts' final touchdown, and was having his knee examined on the sideline as the game wound down. 

The Colts play the Texans in Week 15. Heyward-Bey caught one pass for 11 yards when the teams first met in Week 9.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Colts wideout Darrius Heyward-Bey had a miserable afternoon personally in a Week 13 win over Tennessee. He caught just one pass for 23 yards, had one carry for minus-11 and was booed after a couple drops before taking a seat on the bench.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Colts backup pass catchers Darrius Heyward-Bey, LaVon Brazill and Justice Cunningham were held in check Week 12 against the Cardinals.

Heyward-Bey played the biggest role. Though he only caught three passes for 22 yards, he managed to come down with a two-point conversion late in the game. Brazill actually finished with more yards, picking up 35 yards on three receptions. Cunningham caught just one pass for 4 yards. 

They'll take on the Titans Week 13.
