  • Steelers' Cameron Heyward: Could hold out of OTAs

    Heyward (groin) plans to skip Steelers OTAs unless he receives a contract extension, Joe Rutter of reports.

    Heyward is on track to earn $16 million in 2024, but he has no such assurances for after the upcoming season. He's coming off a down year in which he recorded just 2.0 sacks in 11 games, but he'll still probably be a plus starter for Pittsburgh in 2024 if he doesn't continue to hold out for a new contract.

  • Steelers' Cameron Heyward: Should be 100 percent by camp

    Coach Mike Tomlin said Monday that he expects Heyward (groin) to be a full participant by the start of training camp, Nick Farabaugh of Steelers Now reports.

    Heyward currently is recovering from a cleanup procedure undergone to address a groin/core injury, but Tomlin said he's "not anticipating it to be a factor by the time we get to training camp." The veteran defensive end managed to finish 2023 with 33 tackles (25 solo), two sacks and one pass breakup in 11 games, despite playing through a core-muscle injury for much of the season, so he could bounce back this year if he's simply healthier. Heyward tallied a combined 20.5 sacks across his previous two seasons.

  • Steelers' Cameron Heyward: Recovering from surgery

    Heyward underwent a cleanup surgery Tuesday to address a groin/core muscle injury, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Heyward missed six consecutive games due to a groin injury this past season, but he was able to return to action Week 9 and played the rest of Pittsburgh's slate. However, the veteran pass rusher still seemed to be hampered by injury even while back in the lineup, as he finished with just two sacks across 11 appearances, after having previously logged back-to-back seasons with at least 10 sacks. He could be more effective when back to full health in 2024, the final season of his four-year deal with the Steelers.

  • Steelers' Cameron Heyward: Exits protocols

    Heyward was cleared by an independent neurologist Thursday and is no longer in the league's concussion protocols, Mike DeFabo of The Athletic reports.

    Heyward suffered a concussion in Saturday's loss to the Colts, but he won't be forced to miss any time after making it through the league's five-step process in just a few days. He should be good to go against the Bengals in Week 16.

  • Steelers' Cameron Heyward: Starts week limited

    Heyward (concussion) was listed as a limited participant on Tuesday's injury report, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

    Heyward was placed in concussion protocols following a Week 15 loss to the Colts, so it appears the veteran defensive lineman may be making a quick recovery. However, he still has multiple hurdles to clear before getting approval to suit up Saturday against the Bengals. If Heyward can ramp up his practice activity as the week progresses and get clearance from an independent neurologist to play, he'll be able to suit up Week 16.

  • Steelers' Cameron Heyward: Placed in concussion protocol

    Heyward was placed in concussion protocol following Saturday's 30-13 loss to the Colts, Chris Adamski of reports.

    It's unclear when the issue may occurred, as Heyward was on the field deep into the fourth quarter. He tallied a total of five tackles and one tackle for a loss, though his status for a Week 16 matchup against the Bengals is now in question.

  • Steelers' Cameron Heyward: Secures sack in loss
