The Pittsburgh Steelers got out of Baltimore with a win and without a major injury.
Those are two huge wins. Baltimore is a physical team that has given the Steelers costly injuries in the past. Below we will go over the injuries the Steelers are dealing with.
Marcus Gilbert was out again with a hamstring injury and you have to hope he did not reinjure it. He started the week as a full participant and then was limited on Thursday and Friday. That signals he may have reinjured his hamstring. With him practicing on a limited basis, you have to think he is close to coming back though.
James Harrison did not play on Sunday and that is likely due to an illness. There were other Steelers who were on the injury report for illnesses so I think that a bug is going around the Steelers locker room. It hasn’t kept any Steelers out for an extended amount of time; so, you have to think 92 will be back on the field against Jacksonville.
Mike Mitchell also sat out the Baltimore game. It was a hamstring injury. This is never a good injury for the Steelers to have. You have to think this one is particularly bad considering the track record of Mitchell playing hurt. He has practiced on a limited basis on Thursday and Friday so you also have to think Mitchell won’t be out too much longer.
The Steelers also had a couple of other questionable players that played in Sunday’s game. Sean Davis has been battling a sore ankle but played through it against the Ravens. Ramon Foster also had a thumb injury, but he was able to play on Sunday.
Jesse James has been battling a shoulder injury and an ankle injury these past weeks. He was able to play Sunday so that is a good sign.
Key Defensive players T.J. Watt and Stephon Tuitt were able to return to the lineup Sunday and it sure helped in their key division victory against the Ravens.
