Steelers List Key Starters OUT for Sunday Night

Well it wasn’t a good practice report following the Pittsburgh Steelers last day of real practice on Friday.

They officially listed TJ Watt, Joe Haden, Kevin Dotson, and Isiaah Loudermilk as out for Sundays game in Los Angeles.

With Watt out former first round pick Taco Charlton will make his first career start for the Steelers. Charlton was elevated from the practice squad once Melvin Ingram was traded to Kansas City.

James Pierre will replace Haden, while JC Hassenauer or Joe Haeg will start for Dotson.

The additional loss of Loudermilk is significant to a defensive line that’s already extremely short handed.

There’s been no word on quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. The team is likely holding out hope that he will be able to rejoin the team tomorrow before they fly out.

The Steelers have always been a central part of my life. I grew up listening to WDVE tapes recorded off of the radio of Steelers fight songs, and wearing Steelers jerseys as a fashion statement. I joined the SteelerNation.com message board when I was 12, and this site has been a big part of my life ever since. I’ve found life long friends and met some of the best people on earth through this site. In 2015, I was able to help revive the site and develop a news website and all of our social media platforms. I can’t wait to continue to grow with all of you. Go Steelers!
