The Pittsburgh Steelers were hit with a ton of injuries this past game. First of which being quarterback Ben Roethlisberger who now has a left pectoral injury, missing the first day of practice this week. He normally misses the first day of practice each week so I will not be worried until we find out his status tomorrow. One positive is the pectoral muscle is not on his throwing shoulder, but it would affect him handing the ball off and taking snaps.
Carlos Davis and Diontae Johnson were also held out of practice today with knee injuries. Alex Highsmith did not practice with a groin injury. Davis missed the last game so I was hoping he would be able to practice today. Him not practicing is probably a bad sign for him being able to play this week. Eric Ebron was also held out of practice today as a coach’s decision. He should return tomorrow.
TJ Watt and Joe Haden were limited today with their groin injuries. Justin Layne was also limited with an achilles injury. He wasn’t mentioned during Mike Tomlin’s press conference yesterday.
Devin Bush was a full participant today returning from his groin injury. Hopefully he does not have any setbacks and can play this weekend against the Cincinnati Bengals.
