Darrius Heyward-Bey News

Worst season of his career

Heyward-Bey was not targeted during Sunday's 16-13 win over Cincinnati.

Analysis: DHB played just 76 offensive snaps all season finishing with one reception (on two targets) for nine yards in 14 games. He also ran once for minus-7 yards. These were all career-lows for the 10-year veteran. Heyward-Bey 32 this offseason and is likely to receive little interest on the open market as an unrestricted free agent.

First reception this season in blowout win

Heyward-Bey caught his lone target for nine yards during Thursday's 52-21 win over Carolina.

Analysis: DHB entered the contest without a catch on the season and only one reception dating back to Week 8 of last season. Now in his 10th season in the league Heyward-Bey is an unrestricted free agent next season whose career seems to be winding down.

Full participant Thursday

Heyward-Bey (ankle) was a full participant at practice Thursday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Analysis: Heyward-Bey missed Pittsburgh's last three games due to his ankle injury and the team's Week 7 bye appears to have afforded him enough time to recover. He'll be expected to return to his role as a depth receiver for this week's matchup with Cleveland.

Limited in practice again

Heyward-Bey (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Analysis: Heyward-Bey appears to have progressed in his recovery during the team's Week 7 bye, but has not yet gotten fully healthy from a lingering ankle issue. The depth wideout's availability for Sunday's game against the Browns will be determined by his participation in practice as the week continues.

Practices on limited basis

Coach Mike Tomlin said Heyward-Bey (ankle) was a partial participant in Monday's practice, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Analysis: The Steelers won't hold their first official practice of Week 8 until Wednesday, but the team reconvened for a workout Monday coming off a Week 7 bye. The week off looks like it has done Heyward-Bey some good, as he was unable to practice in any capacity in Week 6 before sitting out the Steelers' 28-21 win over the Bengals. He should have a good shot at being available for Sunday's game against the Browns, though Heyward-Bey's standing as the fifth or sixth man on the depth chart at receiver means he's not guaranteed to dress for the contest even if healthy.

Ruled out for Week 6

Heyward-Bey (ankle) will not play against the Bengals on Sunday.

Analysis: Going into last week's matchup against the Falcons, Heyward-Bey was listed as doubtful but ultimately didn't play. The Maryland product was unable to practice in any capacity this week. Heyward-Bey will have the next two weeks to recover, as the Steelers have their bye in Week 7.

Doubtful for Week 5

The Steelers are listing Heyward-Bey (ankle) as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Heyward-Bey was sidelined throughout the week of practice after exiting Sunday's loss to the Ravens with the ankle injury. He's logged just 16 offensive snaps through the Steelers' first four games, so his expected absence won't have much impact on the team's passing game.

Exits with ankle injury

Heyward-Bey left Sunday's game against the Ravens with an ankle injury and won't return, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Analysis: Heyward-Bey logged 11 snaps on offense and 54 on special teams through the first three weeks of the season, after catching just two passes in 16 games last year. He's merely used as an emergency option in the Pittsburgh offense.
