Injury lingers

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-04

Pierre (shoulder) is considered questionable for Thursday's game against the Patriots, Alan Saunders of reports.

Pierre has been dealing with the injury since Week 12 prep but has been able to play through it. It's not clear if the 27-year-old aggravated the injury Sunday against the Cardinals or if the injury is just continuing to linger. Either way, Pierre's status will remain in question until closer to kickoff Thursday.

Set to face Bengals

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-26

Pierre (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Mike DeFabo of The Athletic reports.

Pierre failed to practice Friday due to the shoulder issue, but he'll nevertheless be ready to suit up. He's played primarily on special teams this season and that should remain the case against the Bengals.

Could play Week 12

Pierre (shoulder) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Bengals, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Pierre seems to be trending in the wrong direction to play in Sunday's divisional matchup, as he's gone from limited practice sessions both Wednesday and Thursday to a DNP on Friday. The fourth-year cornerback has appeared in 10 games for the Steelers this season, recording five total tackles and playing almost strictly on special teams.

Active despite ankle issue

Pierre (ankle) is active Week against the Jaguars.

Pierre was added to the injury report Friday with an ankle injury, but it won't prevent him from missing his first game of the season. The fourth-year defensive back has primarily been a special teams contributor this season with the Steelers.

Returning to Pittsburgh

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-03-21

The Steelers re-signed Pierre on Tuesday, Mark Kaboly of The Athletic reports.

Pierre logged 29 tackles (22 solo) and an interception for Pittsburgh last year and now the 26-year-old will return for the 2023 season. Originally a restricted free agent, the Steelers opted not to tender Pierre last week but will now get him back at a cheaper price. The 2020 undrafted free agent should provide solid depth in the secondary as well as seeing time on special teams.

Set to play Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-06

Pierre (concussion) has cleared league protocol and is expected to play Sunday versus the Browns, Brooke Pryor of reports.

Pierre was a full participant at practice all week and looks likely to return to the the Steelers' secondary for their regular-season finale against Cleveland. The 26-year-old will be back in his role as a depth option in the secondary behind the likes of Cameron Sutton and Arthur Maulet at cornerback.

Logs full practice

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-04

Pierre (concussion) was a full participant in practice Wednesday.

Pierre suffered a concussion Sunday against the Ravens. His ability to log a full practice is certainly good news for his potential availability Week 18 against the Browns. However, it doesn't necessarily mean he's cleared the league protocols, so he's currently questionable against Cleveland.

Concussion confirmed

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-01

Pierre won't return to Sunday's contest at Baltimore due to a concussion.

Pierre was checked for a head injury in the first half Sunday, and now that he officially has a concussion, he'll be subject to league protocols in order to gain clearance to play Week 18 against the Browns.

Getting checked for head injury

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-01

Pierre is being examined for a head injury during Sunday's game at Baltimore, Brooke Pryor of reports.

If he eventually is diagnosed with a concussion, Pierre will be subject to league protocols before he'll be allowed to see game action. Prior to Sunday, he's had close to an even split in snaps between defense (221) and special teams (183) on his way to 24 tackles and one interception in 15 games.
