Steelers Injury Report: Le’Veon Bell Out, All Others Probable For Ravens Game

After earlier ruling out running back Le’Veon Bell (knee) earlier in the day for the Saturday night AFC Wild Card Game against the Baltimore Ravens, the rest of the Pittsburgh Steelers Friday injury report has now been released by the team.

Practicing Friday were linebacker James Harrison (illness), quarterback Landry Jones (illness), tackle Mike Adams (illness), tight end Heath Miller (not injury related), quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (not injury related), nose tackle Steve McLendon (shoulder), tight end Michael Palmer (groin), safety Troy Polamalu (knee) and cornerback Ike Taylor (shoulder, forearm), and all nine players end the week listed as probable for the game Saturday night.

After missing the last two games with a knee injury, Polamalu is expected to start against the Ravens Saturday night.

As far as Taylor goes, it’s still unclear whether or not he will dress and play against the Ravens as the Steelers secondary seems to have stabilized some since he went down injured several weeks ago. Taylor hasn’t played or dressed for a game since Week 14, so there’s an outside chance he might show up on the inactive list once again.

    They can always put Taylor on Owen Daniels. If they put him on Steve Smith, I can already see a fight breaking out between the two physical vets.

    Is it possible that we could be walking into denver without bell? Assuming we get past the dirty birds

  • Seymour Bottoms

    Ike be a team player and take yourself out of this game before it even starts, thank you.

  • StrengthOfVictory

    I would guess Bell would be back for Denver. Possibly splitting carries, but I’d be a bit surprised if he sat out multiple games.

    Dale Lolley doesn’t seem to think Taylor dresses again this season.

  • walter mason

    I feel secure knowing Landry jones participated in practice

  • Aric Brown

    We can get past baltimore, but I think we’d have to have him at Denver

    Give ’em hell Troy!

  • Jason Vancil

    Someone had to play the role of Joe Flucco.

    I hope Troy has the game of his life and a fitting send off at home for his Hall of Fame career.

    I have to believe they keep Taylor out (or mostly out) given the play of the other guys. But Troy you have to get on the field. His play has been down but he shows up big vs the Ravens and you know he scares the hell out of Flacco given their history. Mitchell hasn’t exactly been on fire so the most interesting question for me is why not Allen and Troy with Mitchell more limited?

    In spite of Troy being Troy I think the Steelers should play with what they currently have because it has made them more disciplined as a team. Not great but better disciplined. Troy cannot cover anyone anymore. So unless the team is going to blitz with Troy in the package which would scream predictable I think its better to stick with the young DBs that have been making plains and building a chemistry playing together. I love Troy and I love IKE and i hate the fact that we are now talking about the end of the careers because it hurts because they have brought so much to the city of Pittsburgh. I love those guys
