Steelers' Le'Veon Bell: Targeting Sept. 1 return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (groin) indicated on his Twitter account that he is planning to report to training camp Sept. 1.

Bell hasn't yet reported to training camp as he's sought a long-term contract with the Steelers, but it appears as though his holdout is nearing an end. A return date next Friday would be the day after the Steelers' fourth and final preseason game, ensuring Bell doesn't see any exhibition snaps. Barring he and the Steelers finally coming to terms on a contract, Bell will have to sign his $12.12 million franchise tender.

Steelers' Ryan Shazier: DNP in Week 2 of preseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shazier (hamstring) was sidelined for the Steelers preseason win over the Falcons on Sunday, Dale Lolley of the Observer-Reporter reports.

Shazier returned to practice on a limited-basis last week, and it is no surprise that the Steelers opted to hold him out of the exhibition contest. His recovery is seemingly on track at this point, but it is unclear if the team will continue to air on the side of caution as preseason progresses or if they will give him some snaps. Barring any setbacks, he will presumably be starting at inside linebacker in Week 1.

Steelers' Jerald Hawkins: Back to full health
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hawkins (shoulder) participated in the Steelers preseason win over the Falcons on Sunday.

Hawkins spent all of 2016 on the injured reserve after suffering a season-ending shoulder injury. His recovery is seemingly complete however, as he logged 40 snaps in the exhibition contest. The 23-year-old projects to provide depth on the offensive line heading into the season.

Steelers' Jesse James: Not facing competition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James hasn't faced a serious challenge for the starting tight end job, Bob Labriola of Steelers.com reports.

After making 13 starts last season while Ladarius Green was limited to six games, James had the inside track to the No. 1 spot on the depth chart once Green was released in May. There was some thought Xavier Grimble would push for the starting gig -- or at least regular work on passing downs -- but it seems James has locked down the top job without much trouble. Given both his own limitations and the team's abundant talent at the other skill positions, James still only projects as a complementary piece in the passing attack. He caught 39 passes for 338 yards and three touchdowns on 60 targets last year, producing just 8.7 yards per catch and 5.6 per target. James does at least stand to benefit from playing in a high-powered offense with a quarterback who likes to target tight ends near the end zone.

Steelers' Juju Smith-Schuster: Almost set to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith-Schuster (knee) is close to returning, Chris Adamski of TribLive.com reports.

Smith-Schuster is recovering from a bone bruise he suffered last week in practice, and while the wideout says he feels healthy enough, he's still waiting on team doctors to clear him. The rookie wideout said icing and resting the injury are all he's doing for treatment right now, so it looks like he could return to the field within the next week or so.
