Steelers Injury Report: S Shamarko Thomas And LB Stevenson Sylvester Both Doubtful For Browns Game

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin updated the health of the team Tuesday during his weekly press conference as the team now prepares to play the Cleveland Browns this coming Sunday.

Linebacker Stevenson Sylvester (hamstring) and safety Shamarko Thomas (ankle) were characterized by Tomlin as being doubtful this week.

Defensive end Brett Keisel (foot), linebacker LaMarr Woodley (calf) and guard Ramon Foster (ankle) will likely be limited early in the week, according to Tomlin. However, the head coach thinks all three have a legitimate chance of playing this week after sitting out the game Sunday against the Detroit Lions.

Tomlin talked about wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (foot) later in his press conference and said he will be limited in practice this week but is encouraged as far as him being able to play Sunday. Sanders suffered a right foot injury in the win over the Lions in the second quarter and did not return to the game.

  • Steve

    How did Sanders get hurt? He didn’t do nothing! Maybe tripped over that money he’s makin taking it to the bank.

  • Elijah Stevenson

    To b honest shamarko doesn’t have the height to b a safety anyway. Hope Keisal and wooldy will b up to speed

  • Steve

    Neither Safety we have now is tall. He can tackle and runs too the ball.

  • Mike Sweeney

    Sanders? whose he? Is that the guy who cannot run routes, drops balls, throws temper tantrums, does somersaults into the end zone and has like 17 grabs? Hope the other guys can play on Sunday and disrupt the down spiraling Browns.
