Injury Wheaton out, Coates questionable     -- Sat Oct 15 12:00 pm --

Hand injury for Coates
The Steelers might be down to three healthy receivers for the game Sunday in Miami. Markus Wheaton will miss the game with a shoulder injury, and Sammie Coates, who has emerged in recent weeks as the No. 2 receiver opposite Antonio Brown, is questionable with a hand injury. If Coates cannot play, the Steelers will sign Cobi Hamilton from their practice squad to the active roster to give them four healthy receivers on the game day roster. Coates, who returned to practice Friday on a limited basis, has experienced some swelling with his hand, but he said thatís to be expected because the cut hasnít completely healed. (Pittsburgh Post Gazette)

FF Today's Take: Coates is shaping up to be a gametime decision. If he's inactive Eli Rogers could see more targets and would be on the FLEX radar for Week 6. Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown should be heavily involved against the Dolphins.

Hopeful to play on Sunday versus Bengals
PITTSBURGH (AP) ó 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.
