The Steelers got their first official regular season practice out of the way in preparation to play the Baltimore Ravens Sunday in Baltimore. The first Steelers injury and practice participation was released.
Rookie linebacker Chris Carter (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday as he recovers from the hamstring injury suffered against the Falcons in the preseason. Carter would have likely been inactive regardless if he was 100%. Wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery (hamstring) and rookie tackle Marcus Gilbert (concussion) were both limited on Wednesday. Cotchery tweaked his hamstring in his first game action with the Steelers against the Eagles. The Gilbert concussion is a new injury likely suffered against the Panthers last Thursday night.
As far as the Ravens go, they listed no injuries on the report as all 53 players practiced fully on Wednesday. The most notable Ravens player that practiced was center Matt Birk who is still recovering from his recent surgery on his left knee. He looks more and more likely to start on Sunday baring a setback.
