Steelers declared LG Ramon Foster, CB Coty Sensabaugh, QB Joshua Dobbs, S J.J. Wilcox, OT Jerald Hawkins, WR Antonio Brown and DT Daniel McCullers inactive for Week 16 against the Texans.
As expected, Joe Haden (leg) is finally returning. He will slide in seamlessly for Sensabaugh, who had been seeing heavy snaps during Haden's absence. Mon, Dec 25, 2017 03:09:00 PM

Steelers LG Ramon Foster has been placed in the concussion protocol.

Foster experienced symptoms after the game and was placed in the protocol. Playing on Monday, the Steelers have an extra day this week, but Foster is still questionable to face the Texans.
Tue, Dec 19, 2017 12:16:00 PM

Steelers LG Ramon Foster (back) is inactive for Week 6 against the Chiefs.

He was listed as questionable, but Foster sat out the entire week of practice. QB Josh Dobbs, WR Justin Hunter, LB Arthur Moats, OT Jerald Hawkins, TE Xavier Grimble, and NT Dan McCullers are also inactive.

Steelers LG Ramon Foster left Sunday's Week 3 game against the Bears with a left hand injury and is questionable to return.

He went to the locker room to get checked out following the Steelers' second drive. B.J. Finney is in at left guard.

Steelers LG Ramon Foster (chest) is questionable for Week 14 against the Bills.

Foster did not practice at all this week after taking a helmet to the chest against the Giants. B.J. Finney will get the nod at left guard if Foster misses the game. Foster sitting out would be a blow for the entire offense.

Steelers re-signed LG Ramon Foster to a three-year contract.

It's an underrated keep for a Steelers offensive line that has gelled well together under OC Todd Haley. Foster started all 18 games last season and didn't miss a single snap. He turned 30 in January and graded out very favorably in pass protection and as a run blocker last season.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Steelers are "finalizing" a contract with free agent LG Ramon Foster.

We haven't had a blurb on Foster in nearly three years, but he's coming off one of his best seasons. He didn't miss a single snap, playing all 1,234 across 18 games. Foster received strong marks from Pro Football Focus for both his run and pass blocking, grading out as the site's No. 17 overall guard.

Steelers LG Ramon Foster suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's win, and will be sidelined a "couple weeks."

The Steelers' offensive line continues to be stunningly injury prone. Foster dealt with a pectoral strain earlier this season, but Sunday will be the first start he's missed. Guy Whimper filled in for Foster against the Bills, and will likely get the start against the Lions. Foster has graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 8 left guard this season, so it's not good news for Le'Veon Bell.

Steelers LG Ramon Foster has been diagnosed with a minor pectoral strain.

Foster originally suffered the injury last week and aggravated it in the second quarter of Sunday's loss. He should return following the Steelers' Week 5 bye.

Steelers LG Ramon Foster exited Sunday's Week 4 game against the Vikings with a chest injury.

He's been ruled out for the rest of the game. Kelvin Beachum has replaced him at left guard.

Steelers re-signed OG Ramon Foster to a three-year contract.

Foster was thought to be on the outs with the Steelers, but remained in their plans after all. Foster has rarely been better than replacement-level during his four years in Pittsburgh, but has played through injury and is solid as a pass blocker. Foster will probably compete for a starting job, but could be asked to lose weight as the Steelers attempt to get more athletic up front.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports the Cardinals, Bears, and Titans have all shown interest in free agent OG Ramon Foster.

The Arizona connection makes sense because ex-Steelers offensive boss Bruce Arians is now the Cardinals' head coach. The Steelers seem lukewarm on re-signing Foster with Willie Colon and David DeCastro in place as starting guards.

Impending free agent RG Ramon Foster is not an "ideal fit" for the Steelers and may not be re-signed.

Foster stated after the season that he intended to test the free-agent market, and wants to "go somewhere where I'll be appreciated." Pittsburgh is expected to plug in a more athletic pulling guard in his spot, and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette mentions second-year lineman Kelvin Beachum as an option. At 6-foot-2, 303, Beachum also fits the team's desires to get lighter up front.

Impending free agent RG Ramon Foster is expected to test the market.

Foster has started 31 games over the last two seasons, but he's unlikely to be a priority for the Steelers. They took David DeCastro in the first round last year and Willie Colon signed a five-year contract in 2011. "I want to go somewhere where I'll be appreciated," Foster said. "I played a lot and started a lot. I'll see where it goes when free agency opens up whether I get a contract or not."

Coach Mike Tomlin expects RG Ramon Foster (eye) and RT Marcus Gilbert (knee) to be fine for this week's game versus the Jets.

It's good news for Ben Roethlisberger, as the Broncos' pass rushers took advantage of backups Doug Legursky and especially Mike Adams late in the season opener.
