Steelers Injury Report: LB Jarvis Jones Sidelined; T Marcus Gilbert Limited

The Pittsburgh Steelers have completed their first practice of the week as they prepare to host the Baltimore Ravens this coming Sunday at Heinz Field. The first injury report is out and it includes just a few minor surprises.

Wide receiver Markus Wheaton (finger) has already been ruled out for the game and did not practice on Wednesday as expected. Derek Moye will play once again this week with Wheaton still sidelined.

Linebacker Jarvis Jones (head) did not practice Wednesday and was listed with some sort of head injury.

Defensive end Brett Keisel (abdomen) and linebacker LaMarr Woodley (knee) were both limited on Wednesday. Keisel suffered his injury in the first half of the game Sunday against the New York Jets and was sidelined the entire second half as a result. Tomlin said Tuesday he believes that both Keisel and Woodley, who is dealing with knee discomfort, will be able to practice later in the week and that both should be good to go come Sunday.

Tackle Marcus Gilbert (quad) was limited as was tight end Heath Miller (not injury related). The injury to Gilbert is not expected to be serious.

Linebacker Sean Spence was back practicing for the first time since injuring his knee last preseason. He is not on the injury report as he is not currently on the active roster.

    Not good Jarvis has a head injury. A concussion I presume?

  • Xclewsive

    JJ wasn’t on the injury report in Tuesday press conference probably just a severe headache. I guess everybody will know the extent Friday if JJ doesn’t practice.

  • Matt Manzo

    Honestly not too worried abou Jones. Worilds seems ready to step up

  • Patrick J Brophy

    Pro football is making a leap saying Jarvis is out due to his spinal stenosis?sp?
    Any word?

  • Terrence Phelps

    Get well Jarvis!

    Marcus Gilbert…you are about as bad as it gets.

  • joed32

    That wouldn’t have anything to do with his head though.

  • SteelersDepot

    for having a minor quad injury?

  • Kevin Gobleck

    probably a migraine/headache

  • Terrence Phelps

    I am referring to injuries. He just can’t seem to stay healthy.
