Steelers Injury Report: LB Jarvis Jones Questionable; LB Sean Spence Suffers Finger Injury
The Pittsburgh Steelers have now wrapped up their Friday practice and the final injury report for Sunday game at Heinz Field against the Baltimore Ravens is now out.
Linebacker Jarvis Jones (concussion), who continues to try to fight through the concussion he sustained last Sunday in the win over the New York Jets, practiced Friday and is officially listed as questionable on the injury report. According to Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Jones has not ruled himself out for the game Sunday.
Jarvis Jones said this is his first concussion. "It’s something new to me," he said. "That’s why I wanted to take precautions on it.”

“It’s something new to me,” Jones said, according to Fittipaldo. “That’s why I wanted to take precautions on it.”
Tackle Marcus Gilbert (quadriceps) practiced fully on Friday after being limited on both Wednesday and Thursday. He is officially listed as probable and said he will play.
Defensive end Brett Keisel (abdomen), linebacker LaMarr Woodley (knee) and tight end Heath Miller (not injury related) all practiced fully once again and all are listed as probable.
Newly acquired tight end Richard Gordon (toe) failed to practice again and he has been ruled out for Sunday’s game. Wide receiver Markus Wheaton (finger) has also long been ruled out for the game as well.
ILB Sean Spence missed 2nd consecutive practice to have his finger examined. #Steelers fear he broke it Wednesday.

Linebacker Sean Spence appears to have had some sort of setback in his return to the practice field as Jim Wexell of Steel City Insider reports that he missed a second straight day in order to have a finger examined as he fears that he may have broken it. The Steelers do not have to list Spence on the injury report because he remains on the PUP list and is thus not part of the 53 man roster.
