The Pittsburgh Steelers’ injury report seems to get bigger by the minute.

This week, the newest addition is Sean Davis, who was limited in practice Thursday due to an ankle injury. Although we should expect him to play Sunday, his limited participation, especially involving an ankle, could be worrisome of his contribution in Week 2.

Outside of Davis, Pittsburgh doesn’t have too many surprises in their injury report. Bud Dupree joining practice is a huge step, and with any luck, the Steelers should have him on the field for their home opener.

Stephon Tuitt is week-to-week with his bicep injury, but until Mike Tomlin rules him out for Sunday, there’s still a chance No. 91 suits up against Minnesota.

Although Pittsburgh would like to see Vance McDonald on the field, the newly required tight end isn’t necessarily needed if Jesse James continues to play like he did in Week 1. With James coming out that he took the trade personally, he seemed determined to show the Steeler and the NFL that he’s their tight end of the future.

Outside of that, there really isn’t many surprises to Pittsburgh’s injury report. Come Sunday, we could expect to see most of the stars on the field with the exception of one or two.
