Steelers 2017 Week 10 Injury Report: Harrison Ruled Out On Friday, Mitchell A Go

The Pittsburgh Steelers have now released their final injury report ahead of their Sunday Week 10 road game against the Indianapolis Colts and it shows that one player has been officially ruled out for that contest.

After failing to practice again on Friday, Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison (back) was officially ruled out for the team’s Sunday game against the Colts. Harrison showing up on the injury report this week was a bit of a surprise being as he didn’t play in the team’s Week 8 game in addition to the Steelers being on a bye last week. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin also didn’t mention Harrison during his press conference this past week when he reviewed the overall health of the team.

This will make the third time this season that Harrison will be inactive for a game.

As for the other player listed on the Steelers injury report this week, safety Mike Mitchell (Achilles), he ends the week without an injury game designation after practicing fully on Friday. Mitchell was listed as being limited on both Wednesday and Thursday and now it appears as though he’ll indded play against the Colts.

Mitchell injured his Achilles during the second half of the Steelers Week 8 game against the Detroit Lions.

In other great news, Steelers defensive end Stephon Tuitt, tackle Marcus Gilbert and tight end Vance McDonald all stayed off the injury report the entire week and thus all three players are expected to play against the Colts. Tuitt and Gilbert had both missed the Steelers last two games with injuries while McDonald missed only the Week 8 game.

    I hope that achilles doesn’t become a problem for Mitchell. Richard Sherman tore his last night and claimed he actually injured it in week 6.

  • I’d rather see Mitchell sit this one out… I don’t know how you can have an achilles injury and just play through it. I would be too afraid for it to happen like Sherman’s… where it is sore and maybe slightly torn and he’s out there running on it. Give him Sunday off and see how he responds before next Thursday’s Game. Bottom line, the Steelers docs are giving him a green light and they are the experts, so I will blindly trust them to be right on this! 🙂

    It probably would be better to rest hum until Thursday night. I really dislike Thursday night football. After Sunday’s game; they have to fly back to Pittsburgh, making Monday a day off. Practice Tuesday light day Wednesday and thenplay Thursday. Recipe for guys that get hurt Sunday to aggravate injuries.

    Tuitt gets his first sack of the season in Indy. Calling it now.

    Agreed. I loathe Thursday night games. Honestly, if the league is desperate to have a few of them, there should only be 3 Thursdays that should be allowed to have NFL games:

    Week 1 so that the defending champions can get a night to themselves.
    Thanksgiving because hey, this is something even the players can’t hate on as much.
    Thursday after Thanksgiving but only involving teams that played on Thanksgiving (since there are three games now, you can pick from 6 possible teams but all of them can have the full week to prepare as usual. This season, Dallas and Washington will play in the Thursday night game right after Thanksgiving but both teams will play on Thanksgiving. I bet that will end up being a good football game because both teams had proper amount of time to prepare).

    Other than that, it needs to go. I think it is cute that the league is desperate to have the crappy teams like the 49ers and teams with small followings like the Jaguars on prime time but enough is enough. Honestly I am thankful as a Steelers fan, our Thursday night game is one game after we come off a bye. In Goodell’s money grubbing NFL, that is about as good as it gets.

    I mean they could also just plan it better and have teams off the bye week play on Thursday….

    I don’t understand what the NFL is doing here, I don’t care if it’s a planning nightmare, if you wanna make players play on 3 days rest, let them play on 10 days rest. So ludicrous of the NFL.

    agree, when you have teams wear hideous uniforms to garner viewers, it’s time to get rid of it.

  • Cullen James Riley

    Steelers are going to move up to second place with 34 total sacks after this week. I am predicting an eight sack performance.

    Sean Davis: 1 Sack
    Stephon Tuitt: 1 Sack
    Javon Hargrave: 1 Sack
    Cam Heyward: 1.5 Sacks
    Bud Dupree: 1.5 Sacks
    Tj Watt: 2 Sacks

    This is what I was thinking.

  • Guillermo Garcia-Gomez

    I’d be thrilled with this but I doubt it happens lol I’ll say 5 sacks.

  • Josh

    and sell those uniforms. Ka-ching!

  • John

    You are correct. Good point.

  • John

    It was actually more interesting to watch them in those uniforms. Neon sells somehow.

  • ImMikeD

    Thought the same thing

  • ImMikeD

    Wow. I just went to verify your first sack comment and was surprised he doesn’t have one. More surprising though, to me, is that he only has 7 tackles on the year.

  • ImMikeD

    Do you take more than you can eat at the buffet and then go back for seconds?

  • Chris92021

    Stop making sense!! You are gonna make my brain hurt!!

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    I eat it ALL!

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    The Steelers play Colts on Sunday (12 Nov) and then the Titans Thursday (16 Nov) – so whoever gets dinged on Sunday wont have much recovery time.

  • AndyR34

    You have to play to get any stats.

  • Sam Clonch

    So we’ll actually get the 22 expected starters to start?! Killer….

  • Rocksolid20

    He will sit one of these next two games . I say save him
    for Thursday . No way he can play Sunday and come back on a short week .

  • Michael Mosgrove
