Steelers declared QB Michael Vick, ILB Terence Garvin, OLB James Harrison, RB Isaiah Pead, TE Matt Spaeth, OT Byron Stingily and SS Shamarko Thomas inactive for Week 10 against the Browns.

Notably, Ben Roethlisberger (foot) is active, though he isn't expected to start. Marcus Gilbert (toe), Darrius Heyward-Bey (hamstring), Will Johnson (back), Steve McLendon (elbow), Ryan Shazier (knee) and DeAngelo Williams (foot) will also be available for Pittsburgh.

Steelers declared QB Michael Vick, TE Matt Spaeth, DT Leterrius Walton, RB Isaiah Pead, LB Terence Garvin and OT Byron Stingily inactive for Week 9 against the Raiders.

SS Will Allen is active. With Le'Veon Bell (knee) done for the season, DeAngelo Williams gets the start at running back, and will serve in an every-down role.

Steelers declared QBs Michael Vick and Ben Roethlisberger, LB Terence Garvin, DT Stephon Tuitt, OT Byron Stingily, TE Jesse James, and S Will Allen inactive for Week 7 against the Chiefs.

Landry Jones will start at quarterback, with Tyler Murphy backing him up. Tuitt and Allen's absences are big blows to the Pittsburgh defense.
Oct 25 - 11:33 AM

Michael Vick (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 7.

Assuming Ben Roethlisberger (knee, questionable) can't make a heroic Week 7 comeback, Landry Jones will be starting Sunday against the Chiefs. It's unclear whether Vick will get his backup job back when healthy.

Michael Vick (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Vick is expected to miss at least one week. Landry Jones will start if Ben Roethlisberger (knee) doesn't return Sunday.
Oct 21 - 6:12 PM

Michael Vick (hamstring) expects to miss at least one week.

Even if he were healthy, Vick probably wouldn't be under center this week. Ben Roethlisberger (knee) hasn't ruled out a return, and Landry Jones was a marked improvement after Vick's departure against the Cardinals. There's no reason to keep Vick around in two-quarterback leagues.
Oct 19 - 2:02 PM

Michael Vick completed three of eight passes for six yards with five rushes for 47 yards before leaving the Steelers' Week 6 win over the Cardinals.

Vick left the game briefly in the second quarter after getting dirt in his eye and left again early in the second half after suffering what looked like a pulled hamstring. Vick showed no chemistry with anyone on Sunday and only succeeded when he decided to tuck and run. In three games since taking over for Ben Roethlisberger, Vick has done almost nothing to prove that he belongs in the NFL. He has no grasp of the Steelers’ offense and his accuracy, which was always a shortcoming, is now at an all-time worst. Even if Vick is healthy enough to play next week, we’re guessing the Steelers will either go back to Roethlisberger or start Landry Jones instead.
Oct 18 - 5:10 PM

Michael Vick exited the Steelers' Week 6 game against the Cardinals with a hamstring injury and is questionable to return.

Vick suffered the injury early in the third quarter and was replaced by Landry Jones. If this is it for Vick, he'll finish the day 3-of-8 for six yards with 47 yards on five rushes. Ben Roethlisberger (knee) can't return soon enough for the Steelers.
Oct 18 - 3:17 PM

Updating an earlier report, Michael Vick left the Steelers' Week 6 game against the Cardinals after getting dirt in his eye and his return is probable.

It looked like Vick was getting checked for a concussion but he was just getting the dirt out of his eye. He'll be in on the Steelers' next possession. Vick has gotten off to a terrible start, completing two of his first four passes for -1 yard.
Oct 18 - 2:25 PM

Michael Vick left the Steelers' Week 6 game against the Cardinals after taking a knee to the head in the second quarter.

He's being evaluated for a concussion. Landry Jones has entered the game at quarterback. Vick campaigned to stay in the game so it's possible he'll be back shortly. Vick completed 2-of-4 passes for -1 yards with three rushes for 30 yards before exiting.
Oct 18 - 2:17 PM

Michael Vick completed 13-of-26 passes for 203 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Steelers' Week 5 win over the Chargers on Monday night.

Vick was downright horrific much of the night. He could have easily been picked off 4-6 times on bad throws, particularly a couple to Markus Wheaton on out-breaking routes when Chargers' cornerbacks simply dropped the ball. But Vick showed intestinal fortitude late in the fourth quarter, hooking up with Wheaton on a 72-yard, deep-ball touchdown to tie the game 17-17 with 7:42 left. With the Steelers then trailing 20-17, Vick drilled a pass down the middle to Heath Miller at the one-yard line with five seconds left on the clock. Le'Veon Bell punched it in on the next play for the game-winning score. Vick is likely to make at least one more start Week 6 against Arizona. He'll be a bottom-barrel fantasy option.
Oct 12 - 11:57 PM

Michael Vick completed 19-of-26 passes for 124 yards and a touchdown in the Steelers' 23-20 overtime loss to the Ravens in Week 4.

He added nine carries for 33 yards. Vick committed a fumble, but the Steelers recovered. Vick appeared athletically ready, showing off his still-prodigious arm strength while reeling off a few nice runs, but the Steelers insisted on leaving the training wheels on their 15-year pro. The result was a second half where Pittsburgh managed only 60 yards as the Ravens forced overtime. Vick failed to hit a few easy throws while taking some bad sacks, but the loss was not on him. Antonio Brown dropped an easy 36-yard touchdown in the first half. It's understandable that the Steelers want to limit Vick's opportunities to make mistakes, but they'll need to open things up more in Week 5. Vick will be a low-end QB2 against the Chargers.
Oct 2 - 12:02 AM

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin says the team will "work in (Michael Vick's) comfort zone," and "bring the game to him."

Some coaches would rather lose than change up their system for a backup, but Tomlin realizes Vick can't do the things Ben Roethlisberger does. "He is (comfortable in the offense), but that doesn’t mean that we’re going to ask him to execute our offense in the same manner as we’d ask Ben to," Tomlin said. Vick still offers some big-play upside, but is more erratic than ever. He's a turnover machine who's a shell of his former self athletically. The Steelers would be well served to ride Le'Veon Bell, and pick their spots with Vick. He'll be a low-end QB2 for Thursday's game against the Ravens.
Sep 28 - 1:33 PM

Michael Vick completed 5-of-6 passes for 38 yards in Pittsburgh's Week 3 win over the Rams.

Vick came on in relief of an injured Ben Roethlisberger with five minutes left in the third quarter. He appeared overwhelmed, overseeing an offense that gained just 60 yards in 20 minutes with Vick in the game. Of course, on the road against an elite pass rush, it was not an easy environment to walk off the bench into. A shell of his former self, Vick will be on the QB2 borderline for Thursday's game against the Ravens.
