Steelers Injury Report: WR Markus Wheaton To Miss Ravens Game; LB Sean Spence To Practice
Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin met the media Tuesday to talk about the upcoming game against the Baltimore Ravens and updated the injury situation heading into the week of practice.
Tight end David Johnson (wrist) and tackle Levi Brown (triceps) have both been placed on injured reserve and both will have surgery now to repair their injuries suffered last week.
Wide receiver Markus Wheaton (finger) will miss a second consecutive game this week as he is still recovering from his surgery to repair the broken pinky that he suffered in the loss to the Minnesota Vikings.
Defensive end Brett Keisel has a muscular injury that he is trying to overcome. They expect him to perk up by the end of the week so he will likely be limited early this week in practice.
Linebacker LaMarr Woodley (knee) has a little right knee inflammation that he is currently dealing with and it could limit him somewhat this week in practice. Both Keisel and Woodley are expected to play against the Ravens.
Linebacker Sean Spence (knee) will indeed practice this week and will likely be limited and help serve on the scout team. Tight end Matt Spaeth (Lisfranc) will continue to stay where he is, so it sounds like he will not practice as he continues to rehab his Lisfranc injury.
