If you’re a Kansas City Chiefs fan, then you’re likely pretty pleased with the names on the Pittsburgh Steelers injury list released yesterday. That’s because some of the team’s biggest impact players are on it with various bumps and bruises. However, it’s likely that most of them will still play.
Despite Troy Polamalu, Ben Roethlisberger and James Harrison being listed on the report, both are likely to play after practicing this week (Harrison is said to be likely despite not practicing). LaMarr Woodley, however, is going to be out for his third consecutive game and the Steelers have certainly missed his pass rushing ability (he already has 9 sacks on the year). Still the Steelers are loaded among their linebacking corps.
Here’s the full report:
DID NOT PARTICIPATE IN PRACTICE: Linebacker Stevenson Sylvester (calf, questionable).
LIMITED PARTICIPATION IN PRACTICE: Wide receiver Arnaz Battle (hamstring, questionable), linebacker James Harrison (back, probable), linebacker LaMarr Woodley (hamstring, questionable).
FULL PARTICIPATION IN PRACTICE: Safety Troy Polamalu (ribs, probable), quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (right thumb, probable), wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (knee, probable).
