Steelers' Calvin Austin: Will play vs. Cardinals
Austin (ankle) does not carry an injury designation into Sunday's game versus the Cardinals, Mike DeFabo of The Athletic reports.
After he missed practice Wednesday, Austin was able to return in a limited capacity Thursday before upgrading to full participation Friday ahead of the Steelers' game in Week 13. The 2022 fourth-rounder probably won't see any target volume Sunday as long as George Pickens, Diontae Johnson and Allen Robinson remain available.... See More ... See Less
Steelers' Calvin Austin: Ramps up activity
Austin (ankle) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.
Austin logged a DNP on Wednesday, so this is a step in the right direction for the second-year pro. If he can get in a full practice Friday he'll likely avoid an injury designation for a Week 13 matchup with the Cardinals. However, if he remains limited, expect him to head into Sunday with a questionable tag.... See More ... See Less
Steelers' Calvin Austin: Not ready to practice Wednesday
Austin (ankle) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.
Austin sustained the ankle injury in Sunday's 16-10 win over the Bengals and isn't yet healthy enough to return to the field as the Steelers kick off Week 13 prep. He'll still have Thursday and Friday to fit in some practice reps before the Steelers potentially hand him a designation for this Sunday's game against the Cardinals.... See More ... See Less
Steelers' Calvin Austin: Injures ankle in win
Head coach Mike Tomlin noted after Sunday's 16-10 win over the Bengals that Austin sustained an ankle injury late in the game, Alan Saunders of SteelersNow.com reports.
Tomlin didn't provide any other update on the severity of Austin's injury, so his practice participation leading up to Week 13 against the Cardinals should indicate whether he'll miss time. Austin caught his lone target for five yards in Sunday's win.... See More ... See Less
Steelers' Calvin Austin: Two touches in Week 10
Austin secured his lone target for three yards while rushing once for six yards during the Steelers' 23-19 win over the Packers on Sunday.
Austin has recorded at least one rushing attempt in four consecutive games, but his fantasy impact has still been limited. Over his four appearances since the Steelers' Week 6 bye, he's secured three of four targets for 22 yards while rushing six times for 27 yards. Unless several of Pittsburgh's receivers deal with injuries at some point, Austin doesn't have much fantasy relevance.... See More ... See Less
Steelers' Calvin Austin: Logs 10 rushing yards
Austin failed to secure his lone target while rushing twice for 10 yards during the Steelers' 20-16 win over the Titans on Thursday.
Austin's snap count remained consistent in Week 9, and he rushed multiple times for a second consecutive week. The 2022 fourth-rounder showed some glimpses of promise earlier this year but has been limited since the team's Week 6 bye, securing two of three targets for 19 yards while rushing five times for 21 yards over the last three matchups....

Steelers' Calvin Austin: Limited production Sunday
Austin secured both of his targets for 19 yards while rushing twice for 10 yards during the Steelers' 20-10 loss to the Jaguars on Sunday.
Austin saw slightly more playing time Sunday with 16 offensive snaps after being on the field for just seven last week. He tied his second-highest total of the season with four touches, but he was unable to generate much yardage in the defeat. The 2022 fourth-rounder has secured 14 of 24 targets for 162 yards and a touchdown while rushing five times for 14 yards over the first seven games of the season.... See More ... See Less
Steelers' Calvin Austin: Plays seven offensive snaps
Austin rushed once for one yard during the Steelers' 24-17 win over the Rams on Sunday.
Austin scored his first career touchdown via a long reception against the Raiders in Week 3, but his workload has dropped off over the last few games. He's been targeted just once over the last two matchups and played a season-low seven snaps Sunday with Diontae Johnson back in action. As long as the Steelers' other receivers remain healthy, Austin is unlikely to be a reliable fantasy option.... See More ... See Less
Steelers' Calvin Austin: No receptions in win
Austin failed to secure his lone target during the Steelers' 17-10 win over the Ravens on Sunday.
Austin was held without a catch for the first time this season during the Steelers' Week 5 win, but he saw a slight decrease in playing time since he was evaluated for a concussion during the game before being cleared to return. The 2022 fourth-rounder had an encouraging Week 3 performance by securing two of six targets for 72 yards and a touchdown, but he's had limited fantasy value in his other appearances this year....

Steelers' Calvin Austin: Tallies three catches in loss
Austin secured three of five targets for 24 yards while rushing once for five yards during the Steelers' 30-6 loss to the Texans on Sunday.
Austin racked up 72 yards last week, fueled by a long touchdown reception, but he was unable to generate as much production in Week 4 as the Steelers' offense sputtered once again early in the year. While Diontae Johnson (hamstring) remains on injured reserve, Austin's outlook over the next few weeks could be impacted since Mitch Trubisky will likely be taking snaps under center with Kenny Pickett (knee) expected to miss time. Austin has seen at least four targets in every game so far this year, but his overall production has been inconsistent.... See More ... See Less
Steelers' Calvin Austin: Finds end zone vs. Las Vegas
Austin secured two of six targets for 72 yards and a touchdown during the Steelers' 23-18 win over the Raiders on Sunday.
The Steelers' offense has struggled to put together big plays early in the 2023 campaign, but Austin had the longest play of Sunday's primetime matchup with his 72-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter. With Diontae Johnson (hamstring) out once again, Austin saw elevated playing time for a second consecutive week while playing in 73 percent of the team's offensive snaps. Johnson will be unavailable for at least two more games while on injured reserve, so expect Austin's increased playing time to continue next Sunday against Houston.... See More ... See Less
Steelers' Calvin Austin: Targeted four times on MNF
Austin secured one of four targets for 10 yards while rushing once for minus-two yards during the Steelers' 26-22 win over the Browns on Monday.
Pittsburgh's offense struggled to generate much production once again Monday, and Austin was held in check even though Diontae Johnson (hamstring) was unavailable. However, Austin saw an increased snap count in the narrow win, playing 76 percent of the team's offensive snaps after playing 56 percent in Week 1. Austin's playing time should remain elevated over the next few weeks since Johnson is on injured reserve, but Monday's performance showed that his increased snaps won't necessarily translate to an uptick in offensive output....

Steelers' Calvin Austin: Should see added opportunities
With Diontae Johnson expected to miss time with a hamstring injury, Austin is on track to see increased opportunities in the Steelers' passing game, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports.
It remains to be seen how long Johnson will be sidelined, but he's not expected to play Monday night against the Browns, at a minimum. In that context, Austin has a chance to yield fantasy utility in deeper formats, while seeing an increased profile in a WR corps that also includes George Pickens and Allen Robinson. In the Steelers' Week 1 loss to the 49ers, Austin logged 35 snaps (Johnson saw 27 snaps prior to being injured) en route to catching all six of his targets for 37 yards.... See More ... See Less
Steelers' Calvin Austin: Tallies six receptions in Week 1
Austin secured all six of his targets for 37 yards during the Steelers' 30-7 loss to the 49ers on Sunday. He also returned one punt for two yards.
Austin led the Steelers' pass catchers in receptions during Sunday's blowout loss, but it's worth noting that three of his catches came in the fourth quarter, after Diontae Johnson (hamstring) was ruled out for the remainder of the game. While Austin's workload was encouraging in Sunday's regular-season opener, his role going forward will likely depend on whether Johnson is forced to miss additional time.... See More ... See Less
Steelers' Calvin Austin: Set for key role
Austin likely will be the Steelers' top return man this season and may also have a role on offense, Dave Bryan of Steelers Depot reports.
The 2022 fourth-round pick had a strong, well-rounded preseason, posting a 4-93-1 receiving line and taking five punt returns for 107 yards. Austin can also handle kick returns and will probably get a few carries on end-arounds or jet sweeps, but he's unlikely to play a large number of snaps on offense when Diontae Johnson, George Pickens and Allen Robinson all are healthy -- as is the case heading into Week 1 against the 49ers....
