  • Steelers' Darnell Washington: Records first NFL catch

    Washington secured his lone target for 10 yards during the Steelers' 30-6 loss to Houston on Sunday.

    Washington dealt with a knee injury ahead of Sunday's Week 4 tilt, but he was able to suit up against the Texans and recorded a catch for the first time in his professional career. The rookie third-rounder drew praise during offseason activities but has had a minimal role in the passing game to begin the 2023 campaign. The Steelers' offense has struggled mightily to generate much production this year, but Washington could see a slight uptick in usage if Pat Freiermuth's upcoming imaging on his hamstring reveals an issue that will force him to miss time.

  • Steelers' Darnell Washington: Clear of knee injury

    Washington (knee) practiced fully Friday and doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Texans.

    Washington didn't practice Thursday but alleviated any fears about his knee injury with a full session Friday. The rookie tight end has played between 38 and 48 percent of offensive snaps in each of Pittsburgh's first three games, but Washington has been used exclusively as a blocker, having yet to garner a target.

  • Steelers' Darnell Washington: Logs DNP on Thursday

    Washington (knee) did not participate in Thursday's practice, Brooke Pryor of reports.

    Washington's knee issue isn't new, but this DNP comes after the rookie tight end wasn't even listed on the injury report Wednesday. His status for Week 4 is now in question. He's been a complete non-factor in the box score through three weeks, failing to draw a single target on 79 offensive snaps.

  • Steelers' Darnell Washington: Good to go Sunday

    Washington (knee) is good to go for Pittsburgh's game against the Raiders on Sunday.

    Washington is healthy and ready to go for Sunday, despite having missed Wednesday's practice. The rookie third-round pick has yet to be targeted through two games played, seeing only limited snaps behind Pat Freiermuth.

  • Steelers' Darnell Washington: Upgraded to limited Thursday

    Washington (knee) was limited in Thursday's practice, Brooke Pryor of reports.

    The rookie has yet to earn a target on 23 pass routes through two games and is well off the fantasy radar outside of dynasty formats. Washington's mainly been filling a blocking role.

  • Steelers' Darnell Washington: Misses practice Wednesday

    Washington (knee) was a non-participant at the Steelers' practice Wednesday, Teresa Varley of the team's official website reports.

    Washington appears to have left Monday's 26-22 win over the Browns a little worse for wear, opening the week on the sidelines at practice. The tight end still has two more practices this week to return to the field prior to Sunday night's matchup with the Raiders.

  • Steelers' Darnell Washington: Not targeted in opener

    Washington wasn't targeted during the Steelers' 30-7 loss to the 49ers on Sunday.

    Washington was on the field for 38 percent of the Steelers' offensive snaps Sunday, which ranked just ahead of fellow tight end Connor Heyward, who played 27 percent of the snaps. Washington drew praise during offseason activities this year but was limited during the preseason. Pat Freiermuth (chest) exited Sunday's matchup, but Washington's fantasy potential should be limited if Freiermuth is available moving forward.

  • Steelers' Darnell Washington: Logs one reception Saturday

    Washington secured his lone target for six yards during Saturday's 27-15 preseason win over the Bills.

    Washington has had a limited impact over the first two games of the preseason, as he's been limited to one reception in each matchup and has been held under 10 yards in both games. The Steelers haven't had multiple fantasy-relevant tight ends in recent seasons, but Washington should have a chance to compete with Zach Gentry and Connor Heyward for a role behind starter Pat Freiermuth to begin the 2023 campaign.
