Steelers 2017 Week 6 Injury Report: G Ramon Foster Sits Again On Thursday


The Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday practice has now ended and the team has since released their Week 6 Thursday injury report ahead of Sunday’s road game against the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs and it says that only one player failed to work earlier in the day.

After siting out Wednesday’s practice, guard Ramon Foster (back) failed to practice on Thursday. Should Foster wind up missing Sunday’s game against the Chiefs then backup B.J. Finney would more than likely start in his place at left guard.

Center Maurkice Pouncey (chest) practiced fully on Thursday after sitting out Wednesday’s session and thus he should be able to play Sunday against the Chiefs. Also practicing fully on Thursday was inside linebacker Ryan Shazier (quadricep). Shazier was listed as being limited in practice on Thursday so it appears as though he’ll also be good to go on Sunday.

After practicing fully on Wednesday, tackle Marcus Gilbert (hamstring) did the same on Thursday. Barring any kind of a setback, Gilbert will likely play against the Chiefs. He’s missed the last three games with a hamstring injury.

As things stand right now, Foster appears to be the only Steelers player in jeopardy of missing Sunday’s game against the Chiefs due to injury.

    I recall last year foster went down, Finney came in and the offense ran 200+ yards 4 times and broke the 4 game losing streak….

    We need to get our OL healthy and on the field together to make that run for the playoffs.

    Did I miss something? Was it reported that Foster missed Wednesday?

    Yeah, I saw that in the article I commented on. What I apparently hadn’t absorbed, was what it said on the Wednesday article. I must have skimmed over it, when I saw both the headline: “Marcus Gilbert practices fully Wednesday.”

    And then in the article towards the top it had said: “While the Steelers first injury report of Week 6 does show that a few players sat out Wednesday’s practice, neither of them appear to be in jeopardy of missing Sunday’s game against the Chiefs as we sit here today.”

    “Sitting out the Steelers Wednesday practice were Maurkice Pouncey (chest) and guard Ramon Foster (back). Both players played every snap in the Steelers Sunday home loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars and thus there’s currently no reason to think either offensive lineman will miss the Week 6 road game against the Chiefs.”

    I guess my brain combined all those factors into convincing myself that it was all just a normal rest day.
