The Pittsburgh Steelers first injury report for their upcoming game Sunday against the New York Jets is now in and it includes some good news.
Guard Ramon Foster (pectoral) practiced fully Wednesday and as of right now appears to be on track to play against the Jets. Foster re-aggravated the injury that he suffered initially against the Chicago Bears during the first half of the game against the Minnesota Vikings. He failed to play the entire second half as a result.
Also practicing fully on Wednesday was quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (finger). The Steelers signal caller injured the index finger on his throwing hand in the loss to the Vikings, but it did not prevent him from finishing the game.
Limited on Wednesday was safety Da’Mon Cromartie-Smith (hip). He suffered a hip flexor injury against the Vikings and head coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday during his press conference that he would be questionable this week.
Not practicing on Wednesday, as expected, was wide receiver Markus Wheaton (finger). The Steelers rookie has already been ruled out for the game Sunday after undergoing surgery last week to repair a broken pinky finger suffered against the Vikings.
