  • Steelers' Malik Reed: Abruptly downgraded to inactive

    Reed (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.

    Though it was previously noted that Reed would be good to go for the Week 14 divisional matchup versus Baltimore, he's since been ruled inactive and won't suit up this weekend as a result of a nagging back issue. In the 235-pounder's absence, Jamir Jones could receive additional usage at outside linebacker behind starters T.J. Watt and Alex Highsmith.

  • Steelers' Malik Reed: Set to play Sunday

    Reed (back), who was previously questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals, had his injury status removed and will play against the Ravens on Sunday, Mike DeFabo of The Athletic reports.

    Reed has been dealing with a back injury for the past few weeks now, but he will again play through it in the matchup against the Ravens. The 26-year-old will provide rotational depth behind T.J. Watt (ribs) and Alex Highsmith and could see increased playing time if Watt is limited once again.

  • Steelers' Malik Reed: Ready for action Sunday

    Reed (back) is active for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Mike DeFabo of The Athletic reports.

    Reed unexpectedly popped up on Pittsburgh's injury report Saturday with an apparent back issue, but he's since been cleared to play Sunday in Atlanta. The 26-year-old figures to continue operating as a rotational linebacker behind superstar T.J. Watt.

  • Steelers' Malik Reed: Questionable for Sunday

    Reed (back) was added to the injury report Saturday and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

    Reed's status for Sunday's game is now in doubt despite being a full participant in practice throughout the week. The Steelers could be very thin at outside linebacker, as T.J. Watt is also questionable with a rib injury, and if either can't play it would likely lead to Alex Highsmith and Jamir Jones getting more playing time.

  • Steelers' Malik Reed: Suiting up Sunday

    Reed (personal) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Saints, Chris Adamski of Trib Live reports.

    Reed was originally listed as questionable to play in Sunday's contest versus New Orleans due to personal reasons, but it appears like he'll be able to give it a go in Week 10. The 26-year-old will likely give up some snaps to last year's Defensive Player of the Year T.J. Watt, who's suiting up for the first time since the team's season opener due to knee and pectoral issues.

  • Steelers' Malik Reed: Availability uncertain

    Reed is questionable to play Sunday against the Saints due to personal reasons, Missi Matthews of the Steelers' official site reports.

    Reed was excused for personal reasons during practice Thursday and was listed as a limited participant Friday, though the nature of this issue is still unclear. The 26-year-old has played a prominent role over eight games for Pittsburgh this season, recording 18 tackles, one sack and two passes defended while playing 300 defensive snaps. However, with star outside linebacker T.J. Watt (knee) expected to play for the first time since Week 1, Reed's usage could take a dip even if he is ultimately available to play against New Orleans.

  • Steelers' Malik Reed: Looks set to fill in for Watt

    Reed's role is expected to increase significantly as long as T.J. Watt (pectoral) is sidelined, Mark Kaboly of The Athletic reports.

    Coach Mike Tomlin is only ruling Watt out for Week 2 for the time being, but it looks possible that the reigning Defensive Player of the Year will be out at least six weeks. However long Watt is sidelined, Reed's experience as a pass rusher will make him the favorite to pick up the slack on defense. The 26-year-old joined Pittsburgh via trade from Denver late August.

  • Steelers' Malik Reed: Traded to Pittsburgh

    The Broncos traded Reed to the Steelers on Tuesday in exchange for late draft-pick compensation, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Reed suffered an eye injury during the Broncos' second exhibition game but returned to action during the preseason finale. The 26-year-old started 26 games for Denver since the start of 2020 and posted a team-high 13 sacks and three forced fumbles during that stretch. However, Reed was looking at a reduced role this year with Josey Jewell and Bradley Chubb both healthy to start 2022, plus the addition of Randy Gregory (shoulder). In Pittsburgh, Reed figures to operate as a depth pass rusher behind Alex Highsmith and T.J. Watt.
