Steelers Injury Report: Jonathan Dwyer & Chris Rainey Practice, Antonio Brown Sidelined

The Pittsburgh Steelers have wrapped up their Thursday practice in preparation for their Monday night game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

The first official practice injury report for the week is now out and it shows that running back Jonathan Dwyer (quad), running back Chris Rainey (rib), and kicker Shaun Suisham (ankle) all practiced fully.

This is great news for Rainey after he suffered a rib injury in the game Sunday against the New York Giants.

Tackle Marcus Gilbert (ankle) and running back Rashard Mendenhall (achilles) were both limited on Thursday. This was the first practice back for Gilbert after he injured his ankle in the game against the Tennessee Titans. That being said, he is not expected to play Monday night. Mendenhall remains questionable and still could be a week away from returning.

Not practicing on Thursday, as expected, were wide receiver Antonio Brown (ankle), safety Troy Polamalu (calf), and linebacker Stevenson Sylvester (hamstring). All three are expected to be out for the game Monday night and the hope is that they will be ready for the game against the Baltimore Ravens.

    It looks then like the same inactive players for this week as last other than Brown down, Dwyer in. If Rainey can play, we don’t need to promote someone from the PS to be a receiver. Both he and Heath can go outside in an emergency.

    Troy hasn’t practiced at all so unless by some miracle his calf is 100% next week, I say save him for the 2nd Ravens game in Baltimore. He definitely should be ready by then.
