The Thursday injury report for the Pittsburgh Steelers is now in and it includes some pretty discouraging news as far as two defensive starters go.
Defensive end Brett Keisel (foot) failed to practice once again and it’s looking like he might very well miss his second consecutive game of the season. Also not practicing on Thursday was linebacker LaMarr Woodley (calf). Woodley was limited on Wednesday, so it appears as though he might have had a setback with his injured calf. Should he be unable to play Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, Jason Worilds would once again start in his place at left outside linebacker.
Limited for a second straight day was linebacker Stevenson Sylvester (hamstring) and he remains doubtful for the Browns game.
Practicing fully on Thursday were guard Ramon Foster (ankle), tight end Heath Miller (not injury related), center Fernando Velasco (knee), tackle Kelvin Beachum (hip) and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (foot). Foster is trending in the right direction after missing the game last week and the Steelers sorely need him back at left guard against the Browns.
Rounding out the Thursday injury report is safety Shamarko Thomas (ankle), who failed to practice once again and is doubtful to play this week.
