Shamarko Thomas (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Colts.

The biggest fantasy impact as a result of this is that the Steelers secondary lacks depth this week. Great things for Andrew Luck and the Colts receivers, but we've grown to expect that anyway.

Troy Polamalu returned to a full practice on Friday.

Polamalu was limited earlier this week, but it looks like the Steelers were just giving their veteran some rest. He should be good to go for Sunday's game.

Marcus Gilbert (concussion) is doubtful to play on Sunday.

Gilbert has yet to pass through the NFL's concussion protocol and likely won't receive clearance before Sunday's game. Mike Adams will fill in as the starting right tackle.

 Jarvis Jones (dislocated wrist) could return to practice as early as Nov. 3, the team is reporting.

Jones is currently on IR-designated to return so the club expects him back at some point this season. Another week off will put his timetable right about the original timetable so all looks pretty good. He is expected to be back on the field November 30, so he'll hopefully have logged a full month of practice beforehand.

Ryan Shazier (knee) was a full participant in practice on Thursday.

Shazier has missed the last four games with a sprained knee, but has now been back at practice all week. He put in his first full practice Thursday and stands a great chance of returning to his starting inside linebacker spot.

Ryan Shazier (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday.

The Steelers 15th overall pick has missed the past four games due to a sprained knee. Shazier is questionable moving into week eight.

Ike Taylor participated in individual drills Wednesday for first time since breaking right forearm.

Taylor suffered a nasty forearm injury during Pittsburgh's week 3 game against Carolina. Given the severity of the injury, it is unlikely that Taylor will return to the Steelers for several weeks, but it is certainly a positive development that he is partaking in individual drills.

After a four-game absence because of a sprained MCL, Steelers inside linebacker Ryan Shazier could be set to return to the lineup Sunday vs. Indianapolis.

The rookie linebacker did well in his first three NFL games, recording 20 tackles and seemingly making plays with ease. The Steelers' defense could use his youth and will welcome him back on Sunday against the Colts if he is cleared to play. If he stays healthy, he could be a very solid source of tackles in IDP leagues.

Brett Keisel recorded one tackle and one interception during Pittsburgh's win over Houston on Monday night.

Keisel recorded his second career interception on Monday night and returned it 16 yards. You aren't going to see that happen very often, so enjoy the surprise production if you own him in an IDP league.

Lawrence Timmons recorded 12 tackles and one sack during the Steelers' 30-23 win over the Texans on Monday night.

Timmons had another big game on Monday night against Houston. He is able to find bodies and make plays with ease as evident by his four double-digit tackle games this year. On Monday night, Timmons chipped in with a sack, which was his first of the season. He's a great IDP option going forward.
