Steelers Injury Report: Tomlin Says Foster’s Work In Pads Later In The Week Will Be Critical

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin met the media on Tuesday for his weekly press conference in preparation for the Sunday game against the New York Jets and updated the injury situation during the beginning of his talk.

Safety Da’Mon Cromartie-Smith (hip) is dealing with a left hip flexor injury that he suffered in the loss to the Minnesota Vikings and Tomlin termed him questionable to start the week.

According to Tomlin, guard Ramon Foster (pectoral) worked in a partial capacity on Monday with his left pectoral strain and they will anticipate him to continue to do so moving forward through the rest of the week. What Foster is able to do in pads later in the week is going to be critical, he said.

Linebacker Kion Wilson (hamstring) worked in a partial capacity Monday and they will monitor his progress as the week progresses.

Wide receiver Markus Wheaton (finger) was ruled out for the Sunday game by Tomlin after having surgery last week on the pinky finger that he broke in the game against the Vikings.

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.

    Was looking forward to seeing Wheaton against the NYJ secondary, really only one viable starter.

  • Dan

    Gee, Foster at 90%. That would be like a real guard at 60%.
