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.

“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.

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.

    good grief

  • Dr. Doom

    Broken finger no big deal, just means he will have to wear a splint he probably will be a game day inactive any how

  • Chad H

    Broke it smacking the shit outta someone I hope!

  • dgh57

    With Gordon down I hope Palmer sees more playing time than Paulson!

  • gene mann

    another new siging that cant play who makes these calls

  • Dr. Doom

    he was not going to play anyhow been here for two and a half days.

  • Mike.H

    Don’t ban me for this jovial, innocent post but Sean Spence was probably flipping a bird to his haters and doubters by coming back working hard.

    Spence with an injured finger? I laughed and groaned at the same time when I read that! That guy can’t catch a break…not that it will affect his timetable at all though. If he can come back from the knee injury this season, the finger won’t stop him.

    After suffering through his foot injury, breaking his finger is probably equivalent to one of us having a hang nail!

  • Dan

    With all he’s been through, I’m sure he would just Ronnie-Lott his finger it it created too much of a problem.

  • AndyR34

    Duh…it was a KNEE…not a FOOT!

  • Johnny Loose

    sucks…. glad to hear it wasn’t his knee though.

  • gene mann

    I agree Plamer is the better Blocker and we need that this week

  • PA2AK

    Nice contribution there, dick. Prob just confused with the talk about drop-foot.


    When you say practice, does that include contact? I thought they were only allowed to have 14 days of contact during the season. If that’s true what does a broken finger have to do with running around? Maybe a smoke screen for something more serious.

    If it wasn’t for bad luck we wouldn’t have any luck at all. Incredible.

  • george

    AOL..good one. I totally agree

  • William Bigelow

    Spence just can’t catch a ‘break’ …. yuk, yuk, yuk …. after all this kid has been through with his knee, this is minor in comparison

    Thank you!
