Steelers' Le'Veon Bell: Not expected to report this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (contract dispute) isn't expected to report to the Steelers this week, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Prior reports suggested that Bell would rejoin his teammates in Pittsburgh during the Steelers' Week 7 bye, but it appears the star running back is content to continue his holdout at least a little while longer. A bit of evidence emerged Monday when Adam Schefter of ESPN reported Bell wasn't yet on the Steelers' premises. Even if Bell doesn't return during the bye, he could still earn a paycheck for the current week by reporting to the squad Oct. 22, two days ahead of the Steelers' first official practice of Week 8. Whether or not Bell reverses course and returns to the Steelers this week or at some unknown point in the future, the backfield has been in good hands during his absence. Currently, James Conner ranks fifth in the NFL with 453 rushing yards, to which he's tacked on 257 yards receiving and seven total touchdowns in six games.

Steelers' Le'Veon Bell: Doesn't report Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (contract dispute) didn't report to the Steelers' facility Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Expected to end his holdout and rejoin the Steelers during the team's bye Week 7, Bell hasn't made an appearance in Pittsburgh just yet. Technically, he has until next Monday, Oct. 22 to report and sign the franchise tag, so the waiting game continues. Due to the impressive start to the season by his replacement James Conner, there's no telling what kind of workload Bell will take on in his first game back with the team, which could happen Sunday, Oct. 28 against the Browns.

Steelers' Jesse James: Five catches in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James had five receptions for 26 yards during Sunday's 28-21 win over Cincinnati.

His seven targets were the most in a game this season and is averaging 16.1 yards per catch after averaging no better than 8.7 YPC in any of his previous seasons. Following a Week 7 bye, James will face a tough Cleveland defense that has held opposing tight ends to an average of three catches for 29 yards and no touchdowns in five out of six games this season. Keep in mind, however, that the Browns have faced several teams who don't actively seek out the position on offense.

Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Records first sack in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuitt totaled five tackles (one solo) including a sack during Sunday's 28-21 win over Cincinnati.

Like the rest of the Pittsburgh defense, Tuitt has gotten off to a slow start but is beginning to turn things around. The defense is also starting to settle in and has allowed opposing teams an average of 19 points per game the past two weeks, after yielding an average of 29 points in their first four games this season. They have a bye in Week 7 before hosting Cleveland, whom they tied 21-21 in Week 1.

Steelers' Chris Boswell: Perfect in come-from-behind win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boswell made both his field-goal attempts (21, 24) and converted both his extra-point attempts during Sunday's 28-21 win over Cincinnati.

This was only the second time in six games this season that Boswell did not miss a kick, and he'll have time to get his head right as the Steelers are on a bye in Week 7. They host Cleveland, whom they tied 21-21 in Week 1, in a game that Boswell was wide left on a 42-yard field-goal attempt with 1:44 remaining in overtime, which would have given Pittsburgh the win.
