Steelers Injury Report: Mike Wallace, Curtis Brown & Mike Adams All Ruled Out For Browns Game

The Pittsburgh Steelers wrapped up their final practice of the 2012 season on Friday in preparation for the season finale Sunday at Heinz Field against the Cleveland Browns and the final injury report of the season is now out.

Not practicing again on Friday were wide receiver Mike Wallace (hip), cornerback Curtis Brown (ankle) and tackle Mike Adams (ankle) All three players have been ruled out for the game.

Also ruled out on Friday was linebacker Marshall McFadden (abdomen) after he failed to practice on Friday. McFadden, who was promoted to the 53 man roster from the practice squad earlier in the week, suffered an abdomen injury of sorts during the week and was only able to practice on a limited basis on Thursday.

Cornerback Keenan Lewis (knee) practiced fully on Friday after sitting out the Wednesday and Thursday session and he is listed as probable.

Safety Troy Polamalu (not injury related) made his usual return to the practice field on Friday after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday and he too is listed as probable.

Guard David DeCastro (hamstring) practiced fully for a third consecutive day on Friday and is also listed as probable on the Friday injury report.

With Wallace now ruled out the Steelers will likely dress wide receiver Plaxico Burress in his place. Burress has been inactive for the last two games.

With Brown ruled out it is very likely that newly signed cornerback Justin King will dress Sunday and play on special teams.

    Its a shame C.Brown & Mcfadden are out of this game.. wouldve liked for these guys to possibly get some playing time heading into the offseason and in turn platoon and rest some high priced starters

    I think Brown has come along very well. He’ll make the jump next year. I expected him to be ahead of Allen based on draft and college but it just shows none of that matters in the end. We are going to have a great set of corners. Hopefully the Steelers can add quality depth to the group.
