Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin held his weekly press conference Tuesday and he rattled off a long list of injuries as the team prepares to take on the Oakland Raiders this coming Sunday.
Tackle Kelvin Beachum (right ribs), defensive end Brett Keisel (left ribs), wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery (abdominal strain) and linebacker LaMarr Woodley (right knee) could be limited during the early portion of the week, according to Tomlin.
Linebacker Lawerence Timmons (left hand) suffered a broken left hand against the Ravens and currently has a cast on it.
“We fixed it,” said Tomlin. “He has full mobility in all the fingers, but it has been secured with a cast.”
Tight end Richard Gordon (great toe sprain) was termed as questionable this week.
Tackle Marcus Gilbert (right quad) is still having issues with his injured quad, but Tomlin is hopeful he will be able to play Sunday.
Defensive end Cameron Heyward (illness) was sent home sick on Monday and the hope is that he will be able to work come Wednesday.
Wide receiver Markus Wheaton (finger) will miss a third straight game this week with his surgically repaired pinky finger.
Linebacker Sean Spence (hand) suffered a hand injury last week that needed to be prepared.
