Steelers Injury Report: Beachum, DeCastro And McLendon Sit On Wednesday
The Pittsburgh Steelers have now wrapped up their Wednesday practice as they prepare to host the Miami Dolphins Sunday at Heinz Field and the first injury report of the week has now been released.
Missing practice on Wednesday were defensive end Brett Keisel (foot), tackle Kelvin Beachum (knee), guard David DeCastro (foot) and nose tackle Steve McLendon (ankle). Keisel has already been ruled out for the game Sunday after suffering a setback this past Thursday night, while both Beachum and DeCastro were termed questionable on Tuesday by head coach Mike Tomlin. McLendon is still nursing a sprained ankle and it’s not looking good right now for him to return this week.
As expected, linebacker LaMarr Woodley (calf) was limited on Wednesday and there is still some question of whether or not he will make it back this week. He’s missed the last three games because of a calf injury.
As far as positive news on the injury report, tackle Mike Adams (ankle) and running back Le’Veon Bell (concussion) were both able to practice fully on Wednesday. Adams twisted a left ankle Thursday night while Bell of course is still trying to recover from a concussion and it appears that he hasn’t suffered a setback as he proceeds through the mandatory testing.
