Timmons (shin) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's contest.

EDGE Analysis

Timmons was actually transported a local hospital for a closer look at his injured shin. The severity is unknown, but it's not too often that players are taken to a hospital for a shin injury. Timmons' ailment is something to keep an eye on as the week progresses.

Timmons recorded a team-high eight tackles (four solo) in Pittsburgh's 38-16 win over Washington Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Picking up right where he left off last season, Timmons seems to have a knack for putting himself in a position to make plays. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, neither Timmons nor any other Steelers' defender could get to Redskins' quarterback Kirk Cousins all night, failing to record a single sack. They'll look to change that in Week 2 when they host the Bengals, who allowed quarterback Andy Dalton to be sacked seven times against the Jets Sunday.

Timmons and the Steelers are not expected to agree on a contract extension prior to kickoff on Monday, meaning he's slated to become a free agent following the 2016 season, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Once the season begins, the Steelers are known to shut down all contract negotiations, so it appears Timmons will head to free agency following the season. Obviously that doesn't rule out Timmons from re-signing with the Steelers once the offseason is here, but it's at least notable that he'll have the option to explore other choices. Timmons has spent his entire 10-year career with the Steelers and hasn't missed a start in each of his last five seasons. He's coming off a 2015 campaign where he compiled 119 tackles, five sacks, one interception and one forced fumble and should remain one of the team's defensive leaders.

Timmons totaled six tackles (five solo) against Denver on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Timmons had a team high 119 tackles (77 solo), including five sacks, an interception and a forced fumble in 2015. Timmons led the resurgence of the Steelers' defense, which finished third in the league with 48 sacks, matching their total from 2010 when they last made it to the Super Bowl. Timmons, who turns 30 this off season, extended his streak of consecutive regular season games played to 104, which is the fourth longest active consecutive games played streak among NFL linebackers. He should continue to be worthy of fantasy consideration in IDP leagues in 2016.

Timmons recorded eight tackles (one solo) in the Steelers' loss to the Ravens on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Timmons has a team-high 110 tackles this season, 32 more than the next closest defender (Ryan Shazier). He'll look to add to that total in Week 17 against a Cleveland offense he beat for 10 tackles, including a sack, earlier this season. Timmons also looks to extended his streak of consecutive regular-season games started, currently at 84, which is the longest active streak among current Steelers and the third-longest active streak among NFL linebackers.

Timmons totaled six tackles (four solo) including a sack in the Steelers win over the Broncos on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran linebacker has been a tackling machine all season (102), but had struggled to get to opposing quarterbacks until recently, recording sacks in each of his last two games. After compiling a season-high 11 tackles including a sack against Baltimore earlier his season, Timmons will have an opportunity to add to his totals against the Ravens and journeyman quarterback Jimmy Clausen in Week 15.
