Steelers have many injuries ahead of the game with the Packers
Alex Highsmith LB: Questionable (Groin)
Alex Highsmith was another injury that affected the Steelers in the loss to the Bengals. Missing Highsmith and Watt certainly was a gift to Joe Burrow in that he was not sacked and had all kinds of time to pass the ball.
Aaron Rodgers, the quarterback they face next week, will have to wait and see if he will have the same fortune as Burrows. The Steelers have upgraded Highsmith’s condition and he did have a limited practice Wednesday, which is a good sign.
Carlos Davis DT: Questionable (knee)
Davis is another defensive Steelers player with one of those lingering injuries that won’t go away. He has struggled with the injury since before the Bills game, and while the long-term prognosis is still unclear he did miss the Bengals game, and Davis could miss more going forward.
Until his condition gets upgraded, do not expect a return. Expect Isaiahh Loudermilk to keep playing for the injured Davis. At Wednesday’s practice, he did sit out.
Diontae Johnson WR: questionable (Knee)
Johnson’s injury is undoubtedly the worst offensive injury at the moment. The injury caused him to miss the Bengals game. As far as the Green Bay game, it’s still in the air, and fans won’t know until next Wednesday at the earliest and we will see if he gets upgraded or practices.
Losing Johnson is a blow, and having injuries to JuJu Smith Schuster does not help, even if JuJu does return next week. The bright side is he did have a limited practice on Wednesday.
