The Pittsburgh Steelers announced that WR Darrius Heyward-Bey sustained a right foot/ankle injury during Sunday’s game against the Ravens and will not return.
The Steelers promoted Heyward-Bey to the starting lineup ahead of Markus Wheaton earlier in the week.

Entering today’s game, Heyward-Bey had caught five passes for 68 yards receiving and two touchdowns for the Steelers over the course of seven games. He also ran for 60 yards and a touchdown on a single carry.
