  • Steelers' Cameron Heyward: Officially placed on IR

    The Steelers placed Heyward (groin) on injured reserve Thursday.

    Heyward needs groin surgery after going down in Week 1. He'll be required to miss a minimum of four games, but it has already been reported that Heyward is likely to miss around eight weeks. We might not see him again until around Thanksgiving. It's obviously a crushing loss to the middle of Pittsburgh's interior defense and pass rush.

  • Steelers' Cameron Heyward: Will have surgery

    Heyward will undergo surgery Thursday to repair the groin injury he suffered in a Week 1 loss to the 49ers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Heyward is expected to miss eight weeks, which would have him back on the field Nov. 12 for a tilt with the Packers. The Ohio State product has yet to be placed on injured reserve, but that would be a likely move for the Steelers. As a six-time Pro Bowler and the team's co-defensive captain, his impact will be missed on the field, and the team will likely turn to DeMarvin Leal (elbow) and Larry Ogunjobi to help replace his production.

  • Steelers' Cameron Heyward: Injury requires surgery

    Heyward will need surgery to repair the groin injury he suffered in Sunday's loss to the 49ers, Alan Saunders of reports.

    Heyward was expected to miss multiple weeks due to the injury, and the news of his surgery will confirm those expectations. Saunders relays that a timeline for Heyward's return won't be available until after surgery, but the defensive end could still return this season. The Steelers haven't yet placed Heyward on injured reserve, though that could be in the cards.

  • Steelers' Cameron Heyward: Multi-week absence expected

    Heyward will miss multiple weeks due to the groin injury suffered in Sunday's 30-7 loss to the 49ers, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

    Heyward exited the game in the first quarter and attempted to return, but he ultimately hobbled back off the field and remained sidelined for the rest of the contest. The veteran's potential multi-week absence is a significant blow to the Steelers' defense. Although the specifics of the injury are still unknown, Garafolo notes the veteran may ultimately need surgery.

  • Steelers' Cameron Heyward: Exits game with injury

    Heyward is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the 49ers with a groin injury, Mike DeFabo of The Athletic reports.

    Heyward got up slowly after a play in the first quarter. He returned to the game for a few plays before returning to the sidelines and eventually headed to the locker room. With Armon Watts (coach's decision) inactive, Larry Ogunjobi and DeMarvin Leal are set for elevated snap counts if Heyward doesn't return.

  • Steelers' Cameron Heyward: Returns then exits

    Heyward (groin) attempted to return against the 49ers on Sunday but then exited again, Brian Batko of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Heyward tried to return but ultimately hobbled off the field after being unable to go at full speed. Although he may try to return in the second half, considering the results of his initial attempt to enter the game again, it's likely the veteran is done for the day.

  • Steelers' Cameron Heyward: Avoids injury designation

    Heyward (stomach) wasn't listed on Pittsburgh's injury report Friday ahead of Sunday's game versus San Francisco, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

    After being limited at practice Wednesday and missing practice entirely Thursday, Heyward will go into Pittsburgh's game in Week 1 healthy. He'll look to post his third consecutive double-digit sack season in 2023.

  • Steelers' Cameron Heyward: Misses practice with stomach issue

    Heyward (stomach) did not participate at practice Thursday after logging a limited practice Wednesday, Brooke Pryor of reports.

    Pittsburgh's injury report would suggest that the three-time All-Pro is merely suffering from a stomach bug, but nevertheless, his status for the Steelers' date versus San Francisco in Week 1 remains up in the air. Should Heyward miss time, it would likely result in more snaps for 23-year-old DeMarvin Leal.

  • Steelers' Cameron Heyward: Limited practice Wednesday

    Heyward (undisclosed) was a limited participant at the Steelers' practice Wednesday, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports.

    Heyward was dealing with a non-injury-related issue, limiting his participation Wednesday. At this point, there's no reason to believe the defensive lineman is in any danger of missing Sunday's regular-season opener versus the 49ers.
