Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin held his regular Tuesday press conference to talk about the win Sunday over the New York Giants and the upcoming Monday night game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Tomlin updated the injuries heading into the week and said wide receiver Antonio Brown (ankle) has an ankle sprain which leaves his participation this week very much in doubt. Tomlin did not rule out a roster move later on in the week as a result and added that they will see where the week takes them in regard to Brown. They will leave the door ajar for him just the same
Running back Rashard Mendenhall (Achilles) will get some work this week in practice and is currently listed by Tomlin as questionable for Monday night. They will see how he does in practice this week.
Safety Troy Polamalu (calf) and tackle Marcus Gilbert (ankle) might practice in a limited capacity this week, but Tomlin said that both are probably still a week away from returning.
Linebacker Stevenson Sylvester (hamstring) will be questionable this week with his right hamstring injury. Running back Jonathan Dwyer (quad) has a strong chance to make it back this week, according to Tomlin and is considered day-to-day right now.
Running back Chris Rainey (rib) has a rib injury and is very uncomfortable right now. He will likely be limited this week, but does have a chance to play.
Tomlin considers running back Isaac Redman (ankle) and linebacker LaMarr Woodley (hamstring) no worse for the wear after the Giants game.
