As expected, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Allen Robinson II (ankle) sat out of the first practice of the week on Wednesday after injuring his ankle in the Week 3 win over the Las Vegas Raiders last Sunday night. Head coach Mike Tomlin said that Robinson could be limited in the early portion of the week because of the ankle injury, but it sounds like he should have a chance to play in Week 4 against the Houston Texans if he makes progress later in the week. The 30-year-old has failed to take advantage of Diontae Johnson (hamstring) being on Injured Reserve early in the year, catching 11 of 15 targets for 100 yards and no touchdowns through three games. If he's out or limited this Sunday, Calvin Austin III and George Pickens would see even more targets as the top two wideouts.
