Suiting up Monday

Boswell (concussion) is active for Monday's game against the Bears, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Analysis: Boswell took a huge hit along the sideline after attempting a pass on a fake field goal last Sunday at Cleveland and was incredibly woozy while making his way to the locker room. He unsurprisingly entered the concussion protocol, but he was able to return to a full practice Friday and emerge from Week 9 prep without a designation. On the season, Boswell has netted 12 of 13 field-goal attempts and all 12 point-after tries in seven games.

No limitations Friday

Boswell (concussion) was a full practice participant Friday, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Boswell suffered the concussion on a fake-field goal attempt during Sunday's win over the Browns, but it appears he won't end up missing any additional time. The 30-year-old is 12-for-13 on field-goal attempts and 12-for-12 on PATs through seven games this season.

Limited at practice Thursday

Boswell (concussion) was limited in Thursday's practice session, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Analysis: Boswell sustained a concussion in Sunday's win over the Browns when he took a hard hit on a fake field-goal attempt, but it's encouraging to see him on the practice field Thursday. Coach Mike Tomlin said Thursday that the 30-year-old will serve as the starting kicker Monday against the Bears if he's cleared to play by team doctors, but the team signed Josh Lambo to the practice squad Tuesday to fill in if Boswell is unavailable.

Nov 4, 2021 1:01 PM EST


Concussion confirmed

Boswell was diagnosed with a concussion and won't return to Sunday's game against the Browns, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Boswell took a big shot during the second quarter while attempting a pass on a fake field-goal attempt, and Pittsburgh will now be without its kicker for the rest of Sunday's contest. Punter Pressley Harvin could work as the emergency kicker, otherwise the Steelers could opt for a more aggressive strategy on fourth downs and PATs.

Suffers possible concussion

Boswell exited Sunday's game against the Browns and is being evaluated for a concussion, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Boswell was hit hard while attempting a pass on a fake field-goal attempt during the second quarter, and he slowly made his way to the locker room after initially being evaluated on the sideline. He converted on his lone attempt from 31 yards before leaving the contest, and the Steelers may be without a kicker for the rest of Sunday's game.
