Report: Jerricho Cotchery Underwent MRI On Hamstring Today

A little bit of injury news to pass along this afternoon as Ed Bouchette is reporting that Steelers wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery underwent an MRI exam on the injured hamstring of his. Cotchery initially injured the hamstring during his first preseason game in a Steelers uniform against the Eagles and the Steelers shut him down immediately. He did not play in the final two preseason games and was limited in practice yesterday.

There are no results yet on the MRI, but it can be assumed that the Steelers will not dress him this week against the Ravens should he not be able to participate fully in practice by Friday. The Steelers are loaded at the wide receiver position now that Emmanuel Sanders has returned from his foot injury that sidelined him for most of training camp. The Steelers also chose to keep special teams ace Arnaz Battle as well and he is more than capable if needed for 5 wide receiver sets on Sunday.

Look for the Thursday practice injury report to be out in a few more hours, but early word is that Cotchery and rookie linebacker Chris Carter both did not participate today and both will likely be listed as doubtful or out on Friday.

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.
