Steelers Injury Report: Antonio Brown Questionable, Troy Polamalu Doubtful

The Pittsburgh Steelers wrapped up their practice preparations on Friday for their week 12 road game Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.

The final injury report is now out on Friday and it shows quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder), tackle Marcus Gilbert (ankle), quarterback Byron Leftwich (ribs), and wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery (ribs) all listed as out as expected.

Safety Troy Polamalu (calf) practiced some on Friday for the first time since Oct 5th, but is still listed as doubtful on the Friday injury report and not expected to play Sunday.

Wide receiver Antonio Brown (ankle) was limited for a third straight day this week and is listed as questionable on the Friday injury report. Brown told reporters that he had a really good practice and said that if head coach Mike Tomlin lets him, he might just play Sunday.

Running back Isaac Redman (concussion), safety Will Allen (shoulder), defensive end Ziggy Hood (back0, and linebacker Stevenson Sylvester all practiced fully on Friday and all are listed as probable. Hood had been limited on Thursday after failing to work on Wednesday.

Guard Willie Colon was added to the injury report as probable on Friday after being limited with an injured knee. The injury is not expected to force him to miss the game Sunday.

  • If he’s ready, let him play but otherwise I say let’s allow AB to rest/rehab one more week and come back next week at Baltimore with Benjamin Sr…

    If Brown plays, he’ll probably see very limited snaps.

    I would let Antonio Brown sit this one out. I know the Browns aren’t gonna be pushovers but given how well the defense has played, I like our chances. I cannot wait until this team actually is healthy. It will be scary…I just hope we get that chance in January 2013.

    I agree wholeheartedly. I hope we can win the games we should win and make it and then I just hope we don’t get the short end of the stick and have to travel to Denver…again. I can’t wait to see what we can do with our full team. We could fly right under the radar.
