The Steelers Thursday injury report is out following practice and unfortunantly there are a few new names on it. Center Maurkice Pouncey (elbow), linebacker Jason Worilds (quad) and running back Rashard Mendenhall (knee) were all added today as being limited. Worilds is trying to fight back from the quad injury and apparently had a setback today. The Pouncey and Mendenhall injuries are new and happened today. Nose tackle Casey Hampton (shoulder), linebacker James Harrison (eye), guard Doug Legursky (toe), defensive end Aaron Smith (foot) all were out again today and not expected to play Sunday. Nose tackle Chris Hoke (neck) also sat out a second straight day as he tries to recover from the stinger suffered last week against the Jaguars. Wide receiver Mike Wallace (hamstring) was limited on Thursday after sitting out on Wednesday. Wide receiver Hines Ward (not injury related) returned to practice today after his normal Wednesday off and has been removed from the injury report.
For the Cardinals on Thursday, tight end Todd Heap (hamstring) and safety Kerry Rhodes (foot) were out again today. Rhodes has been ruled out and it is not looking good for Heap right now. Tight end Jim Dray (pectoral) was limited for a second straight day. Linebacker Joey Porter (knee) practiced fully Thursday after being limited on Wednesday. Punter Dave Zastudil (right knee) practiced fully again.
