  • Steelers' James Pierre: Returning to Pittsburgh

    The Steelers re-signed Pierre on Tuesday, Mark Kaboly of The Athletic reports.

    Pierre logged 29 tackles (22 solo) and an interception for Pittsburgh last year and now the 26-year-old will return for the 2023 season. Originally a restricted free agent, the Steelers opted not to tender Pierre last week but will now get him back at a cheaper price. The 2020 undrafted free agent should provide solid depth in the secondary as well as seeing time on special teams.

  • Steelers' James Pierre: Logs full practice

    Pierre (concussion) was a full participant in practice Wednesday.

    Pierre suffered a concussion Sunday against the Ravens. His ability to log a full practice is certainly good news for his potential availability Week 18 against the Browns. However, it doesn't necessarily mean he's cleared the league protocols, so he's currently questionable against Cleveland.

  • Steelers' James Pierre: Getting checked for head injury

    Pierre is being examined for a head injury during Sunday's game at Baltimore, Brooke Pryor of reports.

    If he eventually is diagnosed with a concussion, Pierre will be subject to league protocols before he'll be allowed to see game action. Prior to Sunday, he's had close to an even split in snaps between defense (221) and special teams (183) on his way to 24 tackles and one interception in 15 games.

  • Steelers' James Pierre: Will play Sunday night

    Pierre (hip/knee) had his injury designation removed Saturday and is expected to play Sunday in Miami, Steelers Senior Director of Communications Burt Lauten reports.

  • Steelers' James Pierre: Back from COVID list

    Pierre was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    The cornerback was placed on the COVID list Friday, which forced him to miss the Steelers' wild-card loss to the Chiefs on Sunday. Pierre played in all 17 of the Steelers' regular-season contests in 2021 but failed to register a defensive snap in the final six games.

  • Steelers' James Pierre: Lands on COVID list

    Pierre (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

    Pierre's move into COVID protocols comes just two days before the Steelers takes on the Chiefs in the wild-card round of the playoffs. He can still potentially gain clearance in time and suit up Sunday, but if he can't, the move will impact the Steelers' special teams unit more than its defense, as Pierre hasn't played a defensive snap since Week 12 against the Bengals.

  • Steelers' James Pierre: Primed for every-down role

    Pierre is expected to handle an every-down role at cornerback in Sunday's game against the Chargers with Joe Haden (foot) sidelined, Chris Adamski of reports.

    Haden made an early exit last week in the Steelers' 16-16 tie with the Lions, allowing Pierre to take on his largest snap share (74 percent) since Week 5. Pierre tied his season-high total with seven tackles, and he should continue to have ample play-making opportunities Week 11 with both Haden and star safety Minkah Fitzpatrick (reserve/COVID-19 list) out of the picture.
