Full participant Wednesday

Boykin (oblique) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Mike DeFabo of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Boykin missed the Steelers' win over the Colts on Monday night due to an oblique injury that knocked him out of the team's Week 12 loss. However, he appears to have moved past the issue and should be full go heading into Sunday's showdown with the Falcons. The fourth-year wideout has caught just one of two targets for 11 yards across 10 appearances this season and has mostly operated on special teams.

Sidelined for MNF

Boykin (oblique) has been ruled inactive ahead of Monday's game against the Colts.

Analysis: Boykin was forced out with an oblique injury during last week's loss to the Bengals, and he only logged two limited practices ahead of Monday night's game. The 26-year-old has collected one of his two targets for 11 yards in 2022, though he'll now miss his first game of the season. With Boykin out, Diontae Johnson, George Pickens, Steven Sims, Gunner Olszewski and Cody White will operate as the Steelers' available wideouts Week 12.

Questionable for Monday

Boykin (oblique) is listed as questionable for Monday's game at Indianapolis, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Analysis: After opening the week with a DNP on Thursday, Boykin managed back-to-back limited sessions as he deals with an oblique injury stemming from last Sunday's loss to the Bengals. The Steelers don't have to make any signings or elevations to bolster the receiving corps until Monday, so his status is entirely up in the air for Week 12.

Limited participant Friday

Boykin (oblique) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday, Chris Halicke of reports.

Analysis: Boykin sustained an oblique injury during Sunday's loss to the Bengals and was unable to suit up during the first practice of Week 12 on Thursday. It's an encouraging sign to see the wide receiver work his back as a limited participant during Friday's session, though his status for Monday's game against Indianapolis is still up in the air. Boykin has accumulated just one reception while primarily playing on special teams over the first 10 games of the season, and he'll have one more opportunity to improve his activity before Saturday's final injury report.

Nov 25, 2022 5:11 PM EST

Absent from practice

Boykin (oblique) didn't practice Thursday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Analysis: Boykin sustained an oblique injury Sunday against the Bengals, and it was discouraging to see him absent from practice Thursday. If he hopes to suit up Monday against Indianapolis, he'll likely need to practice in some capacity later in the week.

Leaves with injury

Boykin exited Sunday's game against the Bengals early with an oblique injury, Alan Saunders of reports.

Analysis: Boykin's current absence will leave the Steelers light on depth at wide receiver. He's considered questionable to return.

Nov 20, 2022 2:25 PM EST

Limited production Sunday

Boykin secured his lone target for 11 yards during the Steelers' 38-3 loss to the Bills on Sunday.

Analysis: Although the Steelers attempted plenty of passes during Sunday's blowout loss, Boykin's playing time remained limited. He played mainly on special teams and was on the field for just five of the team's offensive snaps. As long as the Steelers' other receivers remain healthy, Boykin is unlikely to have a fantasy-relevant role in the team's offense.

Targeted once in opener

Boykin failed to secure his lone target during Sunday's 23-20 overtime win over the Bengals.

Analysis: Boykin had limited production during his final season with the Ravens in 2021, securing his lone target for six yards over eight appearances. While he drew a target during his Steelers debut Sunday, he was on the field for just 13 percent of the team's offensive snaps and played mainly on special teams. As long as the Steelers' other pass catchers remain healthy, it seems unlikely that Boykin will be a reliable fantasy option.

Quiet against Jaguars

Boykin (ribs) secured his lone target for nine yards during the Steelers' 16-15 preseason win over the Jaguars on Saturday.

Analysis: Boykin dealt with a hip injury over the last week, but the issue didn't prevent him from playing during Pittsburgh's second preseason matchup. However, he was on the field for just 14 percent of the team's offensive snaps after playing 41 percent during the preseason opener. The 2019 third-rounder will have one more chance to make an impact during the preseason Sunday against the Lions.

Doesn't practice Monday

Boykin didn't practice Monday due to a rib injury, Joe Rutter of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Analysis: Boykin was on the field for 41 percent of the Steelers' offensive snaps during Saturday's preseason opener against the Seahawks, and he secured two of three targets for 17 yards. However, he apparently sustained a rib injury that kept him off the field Monday. It's not yet clear whether he'll be available for the team's preseason tilt against Jacksonville this Saturday. Boykin could be on the roster bubble ahead of the regular season since George Pickens has made a strong impact during training camp.

Picked up by Steelers

Boykin was claimed off waivers by the Steelers on Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Boykin will remain in the AFC North for the time being after he was previously waived by the Ravens on Monday. Boykin appeared on 32 offensive snaps and was targeted just once in 2021 after starting the season on injured reserve with a hamstring injury which apparently lost him his role in the team's rotation at wide receiver. Boykin would go on to miss additional time last season while dealing with various injuries, but he appeared on 144 special-teams snaps over eight games and could carve out a role for himself in this phase with Pittsburgh.

Cut by Baltimore

The Ravens cut Boykin on Monday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Boykin had just one season with more than 300 yards at Notre Dame, yet ended up a third-round pick in the 2019 Draft on the strength of a 4.42-second 40-yard dash and 43.5-inch vertical (at 6-4, 220). He then started 24 of 32 games his first two seasons in Baltimore, averaging 14.5 yards per contest while primarily serving as a blocker in a run-heavy offense. Boykin does have seven TDs among his 32 career receptions, but he finished 2021 without a catch in eight games and now figures to be on the roster bubble wherever he lands.

Apr 18, 2022 2:26 PM EST

Difficult 2021 season

Boykin finished the season with one catch for six yards on one target in eight games.

Analysis: Boykin's third season in Baltimore was an all-around disappointment. He opened the season on injured reserve with a hamstring injury and a finger injury sidelined him late in the year. When healthy, Boykin logged a total of 32 offensive snaps and played a career-high 144 special teams snaps. Meanwhile, Baltimore seemed to find its regular receiving corps of the future with Marquise Brown, Rashod Bateman and Devin Duvernay as the primary wideouts. Boykin may have even been surpassed by James Proche and the team has a vested interest in seeing what it has in 2021 draft pick Tylan Wallace, too. The Notre Dame product is entering the final year of his rookie deal and carries a $1.1 million cap hit. If Boykin returns to the Ravens in 2022, it will likely be due to his special teams ability.

Healthy scratch against Rams

Boykin (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Rams.

Analysis: Boykin has been active for the Ravens' last two games, though he played only a combined two offensive snaps in that span. With James Proche (coach's decision) also inactive, Sammy Watkins should move closer to a full-time role on offense. Meanwhile, Tylan Wallace will be a key special teams contributor.

Jan 2, 2022 9:20 AM EST

Clear of finger issue

Boykin (finger) was a full practice participant Wednesday, Rob Demovsky of reports.

Analysis: Boykin sat out the past four games with the finger injury, but he had no limitations at Wednesday's practice. The 25-year-old has one catch for six yards in five games this season and is unlikely to play a significant role in Baltimore's passing game now that he's healthy.

Dec 15, 2021 3:22 PM EST

Won't play Sunday

Boykin (finger) is out Sunday against the Browns, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Boykin will miss his fourth straight game with the injury. The third-year receiver's absence will lead to more potential opportunity for depth wideouts, Tylan Wallace and James Proche.

Dec 12, 2021 8:53 AM EST

Unlikely to play Sunday

Boykin (finger) is doubtful for Sunday's contest against the Browns.

Analysis: Boykin was limited throughout practice this week, but he is unlikely to play Sunday. The third-year wideout hasn't been available since Week 10, so if he is sidelined again it shouldn't impact the Ravens' offensive rotations.

Dec 10, 2021 12:31 PM EST

Limited in practice

Boykin (finger) was limited in practice Wednesday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Analysis: Boykin hasn't played since Week 10 against Miami. He was able to log limited practices last week, so it's hard to say if this is truly progress. The third-year pro will try to return Sunday against the Browns.

Dec 8, 2021 1:38 PM EST

Out for Sunday

Boykin (finger) will not play Sunday against the Steelers.

Analysis: Boykin has missed the Ravens' previous two games and was considered doubtful for Sunday. James Proche and Tylan Wallace will continue to fill in in the depth receiver roles for Baltimore.

Dec 5, 2021 12:13 PM EST

Likely out Sunday

Boykin (finger) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Steelers. Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Analysis: Boykin has missed the past two games with the finger issue and is unlikely to play again Sunday. James Proche and Tylan Wallace should continue to serve as depth wideouts for Baltimore.
