Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey reportedly left practice Thursday, July 31, with concussion symptoms.
Huddle Up: Not that concussions ever arrive at opportune times, but it's particularly bad timing for DHB who's already facing an uphill battle to land a roster spot in the Steel City.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey's 1-year contract only includes $65,000 guaranteed via a signing bonus, with a base salary of $730,000.
Huddle Up: In other words, DHB has a lot to prove after his deeply disappointing 29-309-1 1-year stop in Indy last season.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed free-agent WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (Colts) to a one-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: The Steelers add another speed receiver to their mix. DHB's primary competition will be second-year wideout Markus Wheaton, though Heyward-Bey's inconsistent hands have him as the lower seed in that battle.

Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (hamstring) will miss around a week because of his hamstring injury.
Huddle Up: This has zero impact on the Colts' offense as DHB has been a huge disappointment and has fallen behind young Indy WRs T.Y. Hilton, LaVon Brazill, Da'Rick Rogers and Griff Whalen.

Indianapolis Colts WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury during the Wild Card playoff game and is considered doubtful to return.
Huddle Up: Heyward-Bey was already losing playing time to Da'Rick Rogers and LaVon Brazill, so he may not even be missed.

Indianapolis Colts WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (undisclosed) did not practice Tuesday, Dec. 31.
Huddle Up: It will be far from a huge loss if DHB can't go this week as he failed to record a reception in Indy's final 3 games and has been pushed to the background with the emergence of young WRs Da'Rick Rogers and Griff Whalen.

Indianapolis Colts WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (head) was being evaluated for a concussion after the team's Week 9 game, but head coach Chuck Pagano said Heyward-Bey was cleared.
Huddle Up: He didn't do too much in the game while healthy, though he did draw a pass interference call. He should be the second starter for the foreseeable future, so a few nice games are in store. But don't expect much from him on a weekly basis.

Indianapolis Colts WR Darrius Heyward-Bey is expected to step up and produce, as he is technically the team's No. 1 wide receiver following the season-ending injury to WR Reggie Wayne (knee).
Huddle Up: Any way you slice it, there's suddenly a lot of pressure on DHB, who has 18 catches on 35 targets for 190 yards and a TD this season. His best game has been a 5-catch, 59-yard effort against the 49ers in Week 3, and that's going to be the minimum expected of the wideout if he's truly going to step up as Andrew Luck's No. 1 WR.

Indianapolis Colts WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (shoulder) is expected to practice Wednesday, Sept. 18, or Thursday, Sept. 19. He underwent an MRI on his injured shoulder, but it did not show any problems.
Huddle Up: There isn't much fantasy value here, but having him on the field takes pressure off Reggie Wayne and T.Y. Hilton.

Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said Sunday, Sept. 15, that WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (shoulder) went down hard on his shoulder in the Week 2 game against the Miami Dolphins, forcing him from the game. Heyward-Bey is scheduled for an MRI.
Huddle Up: Hopefully the injury isn'g serious for DHB, but this is good for T.Y. Hilton, who had a big game against the Dolphins. Granted, Hilton didn't do much in the second half after Heyward-Bey left the game, but more playing time means more opportunities to score fantasy points for the explosive Hilton.
