Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace suffered a hamstring pull in week six and looks to be limited this week in practice. We'll have updates as he rehabs the injury. For more on the Steelers, check out Behind The Steel Curtain.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace sat out a week seven practice on Wednesday due to a hamstring injury and is a bit spotty for week seven. Wallace did not leave Sunday's game against the Jaguars so it remains to be seen how serious the injury is. The Steelers leading receiver could simply get two or three days of rest to get it ready for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Wallace is off to the best start of his career and is looking to build on last year's breakout season in which he finished with 60 receptions, 1,257 yards and ten touchdowns. He is currently on pace to surpass his 2010 totals in all three categories and is emerging as one of the top wide receiver threats in the league.

For fantasy purposes, this Sunday's game against the Cardinals represents a fantasy gold mine as Arizona has one of the worst defenses in the NFL, and a particularly bad secondary. More than likely Wallace is limited this week and plays on Sunday, but if not Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders could both find themselves battling for more targets opposite Hines Ward.
