  • 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.

  • Steelers' Calvin Austin: Out again

    Austin (foot) isn't in uniform for Saturday's exhibition with Jacksonville, Dale Lolley of reports.

  • Steelers' Calvin Austin: Using walking boot

    Austin has a walking boot on his injured left foot, Dale Lolley of reports.

    With Anthony Miller (shoulder) out for the season and a number of other wide receivers banged up, Pittsburgh enters Week 2 of the preseason looking awfully thin at the position. Austin doesn't seem likely to play this Sunday against Jacksonville, though it isn't yet clear how serious his foot injury might be. The rookie fourth-round pick should be in the mix for the fourth or fifth WR spot behind Diontae Johnson (hip), Chase Claypool (shoulder) and fellow rookie George Pickens.

  • Steelers' Calvin Austin: Dealing with foot issue

    Coach Mike Tomlin said Austin didn't play in Saturday's preseason win versus the Seahawks due to a foot injury, Adam H. Beasley of Pro Football Network reports.

    The Steelers' top wide receiver duo of Diontae Johnson (hip) and Chase Claypool (shoulder) didn't suit up due to their injuries, and Austin and Anthony Miller (shoulder) joined them on the sideline. Tomlin told Teresa Varley of the team's official site that Austin picked up his issue at practice Friday, but he expects to have the rookie fourth-round pick "get back to us sooner rather than later." Whether or not Austin progresses enough to play next Sunday in Jacksonville remains to be seen.
