Update: Ben Roethlisberger limped off the field with a lower leg injury late in the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Seahawks. Big Ben missed two plays before returning to action.
Update: The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette confirms the Steelers "would like" to find a trade partner for Dennis Dixon. It may be a tough time to trade Dixon, as many teams have already sured up their QB positions with the short preseason.
Update: ESPN is reporting that the players will reportedly receive 48 percent of "all revenue" under the framework of the labor deal currently being discussed. NFLPA chief DeMaurice Smith insists the players only saw 53 percent of the revenues under the previous agreement, though 60 percent is the number most commonly cited.
Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports on Twitter that all players with at least four years of service time will be unrestricted free agents under the labor agreement currently being discussed. This would impact in excess of 500 current players and would potentially lead to a free agent frenzy once a deal is reached.
Update: Washington QB Jake Locker shot down speculation on Tuesday's ProFootballTalk Live that he would turn to baseball's Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in the event of a lockout. Locker had a nice combine, and certainly doesn't want to do anything to mess up the hype that now surrounds him.
Update: Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey (ankle) plans to practice by Thursday or Friday, and now predicts there is a "75 percent chance" he will play in the Super Bowl. "I'm definitely not going to count that young man out," coach Mike Tomlin added.
Fantasy Impact: Pouncey is no longer in a hard cast and is showing progress. It would be a miracle if he actually played given the past reports, but we will find out soon enough.
Update: According to NFL Network reporter Albert Breer, Steelers starting center Maurkice Pouncey is highly doubtful to suit up and play in Super Bowl XLV.
Update: Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Aaron Smith will most likely be watching the big game from the sidelines this Sunday.
Update: Pittsburgh Steelers wideout Hines Ward has let it be known this past week that he has no plans to retire after the Super Bowl.
Fantasy Impact: Ward is an aging veteran and will be 35 next year. The team will keep him around, but he will begin to see his time reduced as the team begins to move towards younger talent in guys like Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown.
Update: NFL.com reports that Pittsburgh Steelers WR Hines Ward claims that he hasn't given much thought about retiring.
Fantasy Impact: Hines Ward told a group of high school students in April that he would retire if he won another super bowl. This uncertainty of retirement is good for Ward, it says the only thing he is worried about is the Super Bowl. Look for him to work harder than he ever has in this upcoming game.
