The Pittsburgh Steelers were back on the practice fields Wednesday to continue preparing for their Sunday night home game against the Kansas City Chiefs and if you heard head coach Mike Tomlin talk on Tuesday, the first injury report from the team for Week 4 certainly doesn’t include any surprises.
Not practicing on Wednesday for the Steelers were linebacker Ryan Shazier (knee), wide receiver Eli Rogers (toe), guard Ramon Foster (chest), safety Robert Golden (hamstring), safety Sean Davis (back), cornerback Senquez Golson (foot) and center/guard Cody Wallace (knee).
On Tuesday, Tomlin indicated that Shazier, Rogers and Foster are very questionable for the Sunday night game due to the injuries the three suffered against the Philadelphia Eagles.
The status of Golden and Davis for Sunday night remains up in the air right now with both players failing to practice on Wednesday. Additionally, Golson won’t play Sunday night and it’s not looking like Wallace will be able to make his 2016 debut either.
With Foster down, expect B.J. Finney to make his first career start against the Chiefs. Additionally, it sounds like safety Jordan Dangerfield might see action against the Chiefs with Golden and Davis both dealing with injuries.
Fullback Roosevelt Nix (back) was limited on Wednesday and that’s not a great sign being as he’s yet to play in a game this season.
In other injury news, linebacker Lawrence Timmons (shin) was able to practice fully on Wednesday. Timmons had to go to the hospital during Sunday’s loss to the Eagles due to a puncture wound that he suffered during that game.
