  • Steelers' Calvin Austin: Competing for slot role

    Austin is competing to serve as the Steelers' slot receiver during OTAs, Mark Kaboly of The Athletic reports.

    Austin missed his entire rookie campaign due to a foot injury, but he appears to be healthy this spring. The Steelers acquired Allen Robinson earlier in the offseason, but Austin still appears to be firmly in the mix for the team's slot role ahead of the 2023 season. The 24-year-old topped 1,000 receiving yards in his final two collegiate seasons at Memphis, totaling 137 receptions for 2,202 yards and 19 touchdowns during that time.

  • Steelers' Calvin Austin: Done for season

    Pittsburgh announced Wednesday that Austin (foot) will remain on injured reserve for the rest of the season, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

    Austin is ineligible to play in 2022 after his 21-day practice evaluation window came to a close without Pittsburgh activating him from IR and adding him to the 53-man roster. The rookie fourth-round pick returned to practice in early October after missing August and September with a foot injury, but the Steelers apparently decided that Austin won't help them this season. He should have plenty of time to get back to full strength before the offseason program next spring.

  • Steelers' Calvin Austin: Will practice this week

    Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that Austin (foot) will resume practicing Wednesday, starting his 21-day window to return from injured reserve, Brooke Pryor of reports.

    Austin didn't play during the preseason due to a foot injury and started the regular season on IR. It's encouraging to see him in line to practice at the earliest possible time, but it remains unclear when he'll be ready for game action. When available, he'll likely slot in behind Diontae Johnson, Chase Claypool and fellow rookie George Pickens. However, with Kenny Pickett taking over as the primary signal caller, the target share of the aforementioned wideouts becomes a lot less certain.

  • Steelers' Calvin Austin: Out at least four weeks

    The Steelers placed Austin (foot) on injured reserve Thursday.

    Austin sat out the preseason due to a foot injury, and he will now be required to miss at least the first four weeks of the regular season as well. That makes the rookie fourth-round pick's first possible return date Oct. 9 versus Buffalo on the road.

  • Steelers' Calvin Austin: Feeling good, to be ready soon

    Austin (foot) said Monday that he's "feeling great" and is just "waiting for coach [Mike] Tomlin's word" to return to practice, Brian Batko of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    It sounds like the rookie hopes to play in Pittsburgh's preseason finale Sunday against Detroit after missing the first two exhibitions. Austin isn't likely to get many snaps Week 1 but still could make a bid for the No. 4 receiver spot behind Diontae Johnson, Chase Claypool and George Pickens.
