PITTSBURGH (AP) — Looks like Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner's balky left ankle won't be ready to go against the Patriots.
The AFC North leaders downgraded Conner from questionable to doubtful for Sunday's game against New England. Conner, who is sixth in the NFL with 909 yards rushing, skipped last week's game against Oakland and was limited in practice on Friday. Jaylen Samuels and Stevan Ridley will fill in for Conner if he's unable to go.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers sat down struggling rookie wide receiver James Washington for Sunday night's game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers will have their depth at tight end tested with Vance McDonald and Xavier Grimble both dealing with injuries.
Coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that McDonald has a hip issue while Grimble is in the concussion protocol. McDonald could be limited early in the week as the Steelers (7-3-1) prepare for a visit from the Los Angeles Chargers (8-3).
Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is expected to make his first start in six games because of an injured throwing shoulder when Miami visits the Indianapolis Colts.
Tannehill will be without tight end A.J. Derby, who will miss his sixth game since Sept. 23 with foot and knee injuries. Nick O'Leary is starting in his place.
Colts center Ryan Kelly is out with a sprained ligament in his left knee.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Mike Munchak revels in projects such as Chukwuma Okorafor. The Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line coach loves few things more than taking raw talent, particularly talent with an unconventional background, and turning into something far more substantial.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers will be without key starters on their offensive and defensive lines when they face the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.
Right tackle Marcus Gilbert will miss his fourth straight game with a knee injury, while defensive end Stephon Tuitt has been ruled out with an elbow injury. Second-year player Matt Feiler will fill in for Gilbert as he has the past three weeks, while nine-year veteran Tyson Alualu is set to replace Tuitt.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh Steelers right tackle Marcus Gilbert will miss his third straight game while dealing with a knee injury.
The Steelers made Gilbert inactive for Thursday night's game against Carolina. Matt Feiler will start in place of Gilbert.
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.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger believes his right arm feels as good as it has in years.
The same goes for the rest of the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback's body, save for the occasional unwanted collision with a teammate.
James Harrison is no longer the odd man out or the oldest man in the locker room.
The ex-Steelers star signed a one-year deal with the New England Patriots on Tuesday, three days after his unceremonious departure from Pittsburgh.
The 39-year-old linebacker posted a photo on Instagram showing himself with 40-year-old quarterback Tom Brady in New England's locker room, writing that he finally has "a teammate that's older than me!"
PITTSBURGH (AP) — James Harrison's long tenure with the Pittsburgh Steelers is over.
The AFC North champions released the five-time Pro Bowl linebacker and 2008 NFL defensive player of the year on Saturday to make room for right tackle Marcus Gilbert. Gilbert is returning from a suspension for violating the league's performance-enhancing substance policy.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — For vastly different reasons, two of the Steelers veteran starters were prevented from practicing fully or playing in games during December.
That changes this week — and Marcus Gilbert and Joe Haden couldn't be happier.
"I'm super, super excited," said Haden, the cornerback whose broken fibula last month interrupted his first season with the Steelers.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Respect comes in many forms. For Chris Hubbard, it came a couple years ago when the Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman learned he was no longer on the hook to pick up the massive spread required for the line's weekly Thursday night get togethers.
"I'm good now," Hubbard said with a laugh.
It just took a while, which is maybe fitting for a late bloomer.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — The NFL has suspended Pittsburgh Steelers right tackle Marcus Gilbert four games for violating the league's performance-enhancers policy. Gilbert will not appeal.
The league made the announcement Monday. Gilbert will be eligible to return for Pittsburgh's visit to Houston on Christmas Day. Gilbert is banned from the team's facility until after the Steelers face New England on Dec. 17.
DETROIT (AP) — Golden Tate is active for the Detroit Lions in Sunday night's game against Pittsburgh despite a shoulder issue that limited the receiver in practice this past week.
Pittsburgh receiver Martavis Bryant is inactive after his social media outburst following a victory over Cincinnati last weekend.
Tate is the Lions' leader with 36 catches for 363 yards this season.
The San Francisco 49ers will have middle linebacker Reuben Foster back against the Dallas Cowboys.
The rookie missed the past five games with a sprained ankle.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Two weeks in and Mike Tomlin's problems are of the NFL first-world variety.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are unbeaten at 2-0 despite not lighting up scoreboards the way they anticipated, managing just four offensive touchdowns through eight quarters.
The defense has been solid, though it has forced just one turnover and is still searching for its first interception.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Offensive lineman nirvana arrived for the Pittsburgh Steelers late in the first quarter on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.
Ten snaps. All handoffs from quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to Le'Veon Bell.
Each one of them chewing up clock, yardage and whatever mettle Miami's defensive front seven might have brought north to chilly Heinz Field with them.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — A day later, the way the Pittsburgh Steelers manhandled the Miami Dolphins for long stretches during their lopsided wild-card win on Sunday felt just as good as it did the first time around.
"It was a pretty thing to watch," right tackle Marcus Gilbert said.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is still in the mix to return to the lineup on Sunday in Baltimore.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger practiced in a limited capacity on Monday, just two weeks after undergoing surgery to repair the meniscus in his left knee.
Whether Roethlisberger is healthy enough to start under center when the Steelers visit their rival Baltimore Ravens on Sunday remains to be seen.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger understands the irony in suggesting the Pittsburgh Steeler practices might be too rough. The $20 million franchise quarterback, after all, is off limits.
Still, a quick scan down his team's crowded injury list left him wondering if it's time for the coaching staff to ease up just a little bit.
