PITTSBURGH (AP) — There's a brutal quality to the brand of football Rosie Nix plays. It comes with the territory when you're 5-foot-11, 248 pounds, and your job requires you to lower your head and...
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Mason Rudolph guided a long first-half touchdown drive to perhaps nudge ahead of Josh Dobbs in the race to be the backup behind Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers...
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Shaun Sarrett is the new offensive line coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Even if the memory is still fresh, the temptation is there for Pittsburgh to overlook the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Steelers might have been guilty of that in January in the AFC divisional playoffs. Mike Mitchell and Le'Veon Bell talked more about a rematch in the conference title game against New England than the Jaguars, who had beaten them soundly at home earlier in the year. The Jaguars beat them again, 45-42.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger was still in the process of picking himself up off the Heinz Field turf when the scrum started, one that sent a message that at the moment it might be unwise to mess with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers aren't surprised by the success of second-year running back James Conner.
Conner continues to shine in the spotlight while two-time All-Pro running back Le'Veon Bell remains away from the team. Conner enjoyed a history-making day, accounting for more than 200 all-purpose yards during the Steelers' 33-18 home win against Cleveland on Sunday.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — It looks like the Pittsburgh Steelers will return the starting right side of their offensive line for a home divisional rivalry meeting with the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday night.
Starting right guard David DeCastro and right tackle Marcus Gilbert both practiced in full this week after missing the team's first win Monday at Tampa Bay because of injury.
"I feel really good," DeCastro said. "I'm just looking forward to getting back out there."
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers are without All-Pro guard David DeCastro and right tackle Marcus Gilbert for Monday night's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
DeCastro is out for the second straight week while recovering from a fractured right hand suffered during Pittsburgh's Week 1 tie against Cleveland.
B.J. Finney is starting in DeCastro's place. Matt Feiler is replacing Gilbert, who had been listed as doubtful with a hamstring issue.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers will be without All-Pro guard David DeCastro for a second straight week when they visit Tampa Bay on Monday night.
DeCastro is still recovering from a fractured right hand suffered during Pittsburgh's Week 1 tie against Cleveland. B.J. Finney will start in Decastro's place.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers will be a little short-handed as they prepare for their home opener against Kanas City.
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, cornerback Joe Haden and guard David DeCastro could all miss practice time after getting dinged up in a season-opening tie in Cleveland.
Roethlisberger is dealing with a right (throwing) elbow issue, Haden has a hamstring problem and DeCastro fractured one of his hands during the four-hour marathon in a monsoon.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — It wasn't a win. It wasn't a loss. It was ... weird.
Seventy minutes of flags, fumbles and the occasional fight. Forgive the Pittsburgh Steelers if they're not quite sure what to make of their 21-21 tie against Cleveland in the season opener.
A full day removed, they still can't quite put a finger on how to feel after a 14-point fourth-quarter lead somehow morphed into the franchise's first tie in 16 years.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ask the men he coaches what makes Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner tick, and you get a variation of the same response.
He's a dude. A good dude. But just a dude.
"There's nothing special or outrageous or eccentric," guard David DeCastro said.
And that might be exactly what the Steelers need after six highly productive if occasionally volatile seasons with Todd Haley calling the plays.
PITTSBURGH STEELERS (13-4)
New faces: S Morgan Burnett, LB Jon Bostic, rookies S Terrell Edmunds, WR James Washington, QB Mason Rudolph, OL Chukwuma Okorafor.
Key losses: LB Ryan Shazier (injured), WR Martavis Bryant, S Mike Mitchell, S Robert Golden, CB William Gay, OL Chris Hubbard, offensive coordinator Todd Haley.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — It wasn't the pregame talk about New England.
Or the seemingly weekly distractions that piled up one on top of the other, some of them self-created and others the byproduct of circumstances far beyond their control.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are giving Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, running back Le'Veon Bell and other starters the day off against the winless Cleveland Browns despite having a shot at home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs.
Roethlisberger and Bell were joined on the sidelines by offensive linemen David DeCastro and Maurkice Pouncey and defensive end Cam Heyward. All are healthy but inactive for Pittsburgh.
NEW YORK (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers lead the NFL in one category this season: most Pro Bowl players.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Another uninspiring half in the books in a season littered with them for a team that expects to play deep into January and beyond, Ben Roethlisberger decided he had seen enough.
So the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback decided it was time to speak up. The defense had kept the Tennessee Titans and star Marcus Mariota in check, yet a game that had the makings of a blowout didn't feel like one mostly because the offense kept squandering chance after chance.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — The drive that put the NFL's last unbeaten team on notice started three feet from the Pittsburgh Steelers own end zone.
Over the course of the next five minutes, the Steelers put their considerable offensive talents on display. They literally pushed the Kansas City Chiefs from one end of the field to the other, quieting the Arrowhead Stadium crowd one Ben Roethlisberger pass and Le'Veon Bell run at a time.
Matchups for the AFC championship game Sunday between the Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots:
PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers have locked up All-Pro guard David DeCastro for the rest of the decade, and then some.
DeCastro signed a new six-year contract that will keep him with Pittsburgh through the 2021 season. The 26-year-old DeCastro was entering the final year of the rookie deal he signed after the Steelers took him with the 24th overall pick in the 2012 draft following an All-American career at Stanford.
