Steelers Versus Titans Injury Report: FB Will Johnson Listed As Probable Friday
The Pittsburgh Steelers have now wrapped up their Friday practice as they prepare to take on the Tennessee Titans in their Sunday season opener at Heinz Field and the final injury report for the week has now been released.
Rookie running back Le’Veon Bell (foot) did not practice again on Friday and has long been ruled out for the game Sunday. Isaac Redman will get the start at running back.
Tight end Heath Miller (knee) remains limited as he is now in the final stages of his rehab after being removed from the PUP list last weekend. Miller is officially listed as doubtful and while he won’t play against the Titans, that is an encouraging sign.
Fullback Will Johnson (hamstring) is surprisingly listed as probable after being limited for a third straight day. Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, however, reported Friday on Twitter that Johnson said he did not participate in team drills this week in practice and that he was limited to only individual and 7-on-7 drills. Johnson also told Fittipaldo that it’s Mike Tomlin‘s call as to whether or not he plays Sunday.
Rookie linebacker Jarvis Jones (chest) practiced fully again for a second straight day and is listed as probable on the injury report. He is expected to play Sunday against the Titans.
Defensive end Brett Keisel (not injury related) was added to the injury report on Friday and listed as probable.
