Steelers Colts Week 3 Friday Practice Injury Report


steelers injury reportThe Steelers wrapped up their preparations on Friday for the Sunday night game against the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oils Stadium and have released their week ending injury report. Defensive end Brett Keisel (knee) did not practice again on Friday and has been ruled out for Sunday. Ziggy Hood will start in his place and rookie Cameron Heyward will back up Hood. Center Maurkice Pouncey (hamstring) practiced fully for the second straight day on Friday after being limited on Wednesday and is officially listed as probable. Pouncey should be able to go Sunday night baring a setback. Running back Jonathan Dwyer (shoulder) also practiced fully again on Friday and is listed as probable. Dwyer will still likely be one of the seven game inactives. Cornerback Bryant McFadden (hamstring), wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery (hamstring) and left guard Chris Kemoeatu (knee) all practiced fully this week and never appeared on the injury report. Kemoeatu is slated to start this week after sitting out last week against the Seahawks. McFadden will not start this week and has been replaced by William Gay in the starting lineup. There is a chance that McFadden might be sat down this week once again despite practicing all week. Cotchery could dress for the first time this season should the Steelers decide to dress six wide receivers.

For the Colts on Friday, linebacker Gary Brackett (shoulder), safety Melvin Bullitt (shoulder), tight end Dallas Clark (foot, hamstring), guard Ryan Diem (ankle), tight end Brody Eldridge (knee) and defensive tackle Fili Moala (ankle) all did not practice and all are listed as questionable on the Friday injury report. Quarterback Kerry Collins (right shoulder), defensive tackle Eric Foster (hamstring), defensive end Robert Mathis (chest), tight end Jacob Tamme (concussion) and wide receiver Blair White (back) all practiced fully, but all are also listed as questionable. Quarterback Peyton Manning (neck) and linebacker Ernie Sims (knee) have long been ruled out.

    I just hope we suffer anything bad in this sacrifice because loosing even 1 starter would not be worth this win. If they are up by 20 going into the second I hope they switch to pre-season mode for the second, O line, QB, receivers (would run anyways) Corners (give the young guys some play) Get Heyward, Maclendon and Hoke out there, Give Worilds some rebs, get Sylvester in there, mundy could use some time….*prays*

    speaking of Worilds (had to look up to make sure name was spelled right) if and when he does start we should call him by middle name which is f’in awsome “EDJEPONG!!” haha

    You can never take any team for granted…although if 2 LB’s, Dallas Clark, Melvin Bullitt, and Peyton are all out…we better win this one. although I wouldnt take out the starters at half
