Steelers Injury Report: G Ramon Foster Practices Fully Again With Only Minimal Pain

The Pittsburgh Steelers have now wrapped up their Thursday practice as they continue to prepare to play the New York Jets this Sunday at MetLife Stadium. The second injury report of the week is now out and here is what it says.

Guard Ramon Foster (pectoral) practiced fully for a second straight day and that continues to be encouraging news. According to Scott Brown of, Foster was able to get through Thursday’s practice with only minimal pain and he is reportedly confident he will play Sunday.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (finger) practiced fully again with the injured index finger on his throwing hand. The Steelers quarterback injured the finger in the second half against the Minnesota Vikings, but is at no risk of missing the game against the Jets.

Tight end Heath Miller (coaches decision) was added to the injury report Thursday as being limited. This again looks to be a precautionary move and it will likely become a weekly occurrence with him moving forward.

Wide receiver Markus Wheaton (finger) of course remains sidelined and he has long been ruled out for the Sunday game. Wheaton needed surgery last week on a pinky finger that he broke in the loss to the Vikings. With Wheaton out this week, wide receiver Derek Moye will dress for the game in his place and will serve as the fourth wide receiver.

    For some reason I feel like the Steelers are going to win this game. The Jets are on a roll at 3-2, but I feel like we get our first SEVERAL turnovers of the year via Geno Smith, coupled with 2+ sacks.
    Bold prediction but I’m sticking with it.

    Here is a thought: As a precautionary measure, sit Foster against the jets, play Beachum at LG, and Levi at LT.

    If Foster isn’t completely healed, why risk aggravating it and risk a season ending injury or else get Ben killed out there because he isn’t 100%. Jets DL is known to be very stout

    Everytime Moye steps on the field he does something good. Lets hope that continues.
