Injury Steelers WR Wheaton practices     -- Wed Sep 14 6:51 pm --

Hopeful to play on Sunday versus Bengals
PITTSBURGH (AP) Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Markus Wheaton is optimistic his sprained shoulder will be good to go in time for Sunday's home opener against Cincinnati. Wheaton practiced Wednesday with an eye toward rejoining Pittsburgh's electric offense for an early-season showdown with the Bengals. (AP)

FF Today's Take: If Markus Wheaton does return for Week 2 it could create uncertainty in the fantasy projections for Pittsburgh's wideouts behind Antonio Brown. Prior to his shoulder injury, Wheaton was expected to contribute in 2016 as the starter opposite of Brown. Eli Rogers' will still be used out of the slot but Sammie Coates may see fewer reps against the Bengals if Wheaton is cleared for action.

Shoulder injury

FF Today's Take: Wheaton missed practice this week and it remains to be seen if he'll be ready for Week 2. In the meantime, Sammie Coates should see increased playing time along with Darrius Heyward Bey. Eli Rogers will man the slot position. Expect Josh Norman to shadow Antonio Brown most of the evening.

Steelers wide receiver group still unclear

FF Today's Take: Rogers led the team in snaps tonight and is quickly earning a slot role with the starting unit, pushing Wheaton to the outside opposite Antonio Brown. Sammie Coates appears to be the odd-man out for the moment.
