Fantasy Football Diehards Line:
Presumably Wallace would be eligible to play in their final preseason game against Carolina Aug. 30 at Heinz Field, but whether he will or not remains unknown. The Steelers have off on Sunday after Saturday's game against Buffalo and will have only two real days of practice before they finish up the preseason against the Panthers. ... However, as Post-Gazette staffer Ed Bouchette points out, reporting this weekend would give the Pro Bowl wide receiver two weeks to practice and prepare for the regular-season opener in Denver Sept. 9. It also could reopen negotiations on a multiple-year deal between Wallace and the Steelers, talks that ended when he did not report for the start of training camp July 25. ... Stay tuned.
