Steelers DE Stephon Tuitt (back) has been ruled out for Week 8.
Tuitt also sat out the win over the Bengals, and the early rule out suggests he is not close to returning. That said, the Steelers are on bye Week 9, so perhaps they are just being cautious. Tyson Alualu should get more snaps with Tuitt sidelined. Oct 26 - 12:58 PM

Date:

Steelers declared DE Stephon Tuitt, QB Joshua Dobbs, WR Justin Hunte, CB Brian Allen, LB Arthur Moats, OT Jerald Hawkins, 77 OT Marcus Gilbert inactive for Week 7 against the Bengals.

Tuitt and Gilbert are the two starters who are inactive. Joe Mixon should be able to capitalize on a weaker Steelers run defense.
Oct 22 - 3:52 PM

Steelers DE Stephon Tuitt (back) is out for Week 7 against the Bengals.

It should lead to more openings for Joe Mixon. Even with Tuitt in the lineup this season, the Steelers have struggled mightily in run defense.

Steelers declared DE Stephon Tuitt, CB Brian Allen, QB Joshua Dobbs, OT Marcus Gilbert, OT Jerald Hawkins, WR Justin Hunter and LB T.J. Watt inactive for Week 3 against the Bears.

Tuitt was expected to play this week after putting in full practices on Thursday and Friday but for some reason couldn't get the green light. Gilbert is out with a hamstring injury, Hawkins is dealing with a bad knee and Watt has a groin issue. The rest are healthy scratches.

Sep 22 - 3:29 PM

Steelers DE Stephon Tuitt (biceps) is hoping to return in Week 3.

Sep 18 - 3:34 PM

Steelers declared DE Stephon Tuitt, QB Joshua Dobbs, WR Justin Hunter, S J.J. Wilcox, OT Jerald Hawkins, OT Matt Feiler, and TE Vance McDonald inactive for Week 2 against the Vikings.

Sep 17 - 11:38 AM

Steelers DE Stephon Tuitt (biceps) is not expected to play Week 2 against the Vikings.

Tuitt returned to a limited practice on Friday, but he apparently is still not quite back from the biceps injury he suffered in the season opener. He will have a good shot to suit up Week 3.

Vance McDonald (back) and J.J. Wilcox (concussion) also drew the questionable listing while Jerald Hawkins has already been ruled out with a knee injury. Tuitt practiced on a limited basis Friday after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday. He may need another week.
Sep 15 - 2:36 PM

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said DE Stephon Tuitt (biceps) could play Week 2 against the Vikings.

Sep 12 - 12:16 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Steelers DE Stephon Tuitt (biceps) has avoided a season-ending injury.

It was thought Tuitt tore his biceps Week 1 against the Browns, but a Monday MRI apparently revealed good news. Rapoport called him "week-to-week," so he still likely will miss a game or two.
Sep 11 - 1:00 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Steelers fear DE Stephon Tuitt suffered a torn biceps in the Week 1 win over the Browns.

He'll undergo an MRI on Monday to confirm the injury. If it is indeed torn, Tuitt would be done for the season. Fortunately for him, Tuitt signed a massive five-year extension on Saturday. It would be a big loss for the defense.
Sep 10 - 9:16 PM

Steelers DL Stephon Tuitt sustained a left arm injury in Sunday's Week 1 game and is questionable to return.

Tuitt left the game after just one possession. He has remained on the sideline without his helmet. Tyson Alualu has replaced Tuitt in the lineup.
Sep 10 - 1:30 PM

Steelers signed DE Stephon Tuitt to a five-year, $60-million extension through 2022.

Tuitt was entering the final year of his rookie deal. He was PFF's No. 9-ranked 3-4 end last season, grading well in both pass rush and run defense. Tuitt is an important part of the Steelers' young and rapidly-improving defense.
Sep 9 - 12:27 PM

Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports the Steelers and DE Stephon Tuitt are "close to signing a contract extension."

Pittsburgh does not negotiate during the season, so the two sides are running out of time. "We’re going to see," Tuitt said. "It’s ongoing. Hopefully, everything is close. Right now I’m worried about getting better every day to get ready for the Browns." Entering the final season of his rookie contract, Tuitt is expected to land at least $10 million a year on his next deal.
