Steelers 2017 Week 10 Injury Report: Harrison Sidelined Again Thursday, Mitchell Still Limited

The Pittsburgh Steelers are a very healthy team ahead of their Week 10 Sunday road game against the Indianapolis Colts and that’s evidenced once again by their Thursday injury report that was released after practice had concluded.

Not practicing again Thursday for the Steelers was outside linebacker James Harrison (back) and at this point you have to wonder if he’ll dress Sunday against the Colts. Harrison’s back injury is a bit of a mystery being as he’s still posting videos of himself lifting weights on social media. Additionally, head coach Mike Tomlin didn’t mention Harrison as being injured during his Tuesday press conference. Harrison has been inactive twice so far this season.

Limited for a second consecutive day on Thursday was safety Mike Mitchell (Achilles) and that means there’s a good chance he won’t play against the Colts. Mitchell suffered his injury in the second half of the team’s Week 8 game. If Mitchell sits Sunday, safety Robert Golden will more than likely start in his place. Additionally, rookie cornerback Brian Allen might dress against the Colts should Mitchell wind up being inactive.

After missing the team’s previous two games, Steelers defensive end Stephon Tuitt (back) and tackle Marcus Gilbert (hamstring) are both still on track to return to action Sunday against the Colts as neither have been listed on the injury report this week. The same goes for tight end Vance McDonald (knee), who missed the team’s Week 8 game against the Detroit Lions.

    Strange about James. His videos sure haven’t slowed. Is this some weird strategy? Getting bizarre.

  • SteelersDepot

    Just Tomlin saving face so when asked why James was inactive he can say back injury

  • NW86

    Yep, I was about to say the same. Basically so James doesn’t have to be called a healthy scratch.

  • 6 ring circus

    Yea, they are dissin’ James, too. Maybe we are going to see an article on Deebo similar to what we saw on Troy. Different set of facts, but same underlying tone…”Pasturizing” another Steeler all-time great.

    Looking for a better second half by McDonald in the passing game. Glad to see he’s on track to play this week.

  • I dont know where to post this so I figured to post here. I enjoy watching madden simulations I run 1 every week for key matchups and every Steelers matchup. If you enjoy these I will start posting the Steelers simulation every week. So here it goes. I hope you enjoy it. Everything is run under simulation settings with no user interaction. Every depth chart goes off current depth charts for every team factoring in injured players.I wont post every single play just key plays and all redzone plays for each team.

    With the handling of Bryant, bell, deebo, it seems likes like this team is starting to come apart at the seams.
