10 Steelers land on the first injury report for Week 4

The Pittsburgh Steelers exited Week 3 of the 2023 NFL season by stacking back-to-back wins to finish off September. Additionally, there were no players who were available in the Raiders game for the Steelers who were not able to finish the game.

With the Steelers having another somewhat short turnaround after not arriving home to Pittsburgh until Monday, there is a chance some players would be limited early in the week. In the first injury report this week courtesy of Steelers.com, there are 10 names that appear on the list, 8 of which did not practice.

Pittsburgh Steelers Participation/Injury Report, Week 4

Wednesday, September 27

No. 6 P Pressley Harvin (Hamstring) – DNP
No. 11 WR Allen Robinson II (Ankle) – DNP
No. 20 CB Patrick Peterson (NIR) – DNP
No. 28 S Miles Killebrew (Knee) – Limited
No. 73 OL Isaac Seumalo (NIR) – DNP
No. 76 OL Chukwuma Okorafor (Elbow) – DNP
No. 78 OL James Daniels (Groin) – DNP
No. 83 FB Connor Heyward (Ankle) – DNP
No. 89 WR Gunner Olszewski (Concussion) – Full
No. 99 DT Larry Ogunjobi (Foot) – DNP

The only player to miss the Steelers Week 3 game due to injury other than the players on IR, Gunner Olszewski did not practice at all last week while in the NFL concussion protocol. On Wednesday, Olszewski returned as a full participant which puts him on schedule to return for Week 4.

Appearing on the injury report every week, Larry Ogunjobi is listed again for Week 4 with a foot injury. For Wednesday’s practice, Ogunjobi once again did not practice.

Two other players on the offense mentioned by Coach Tomlin during his press conference on Tuesday in regards to dealing with injury are guard James Daniels with a groin and wide receiver Allen Robinson with an ankle. As expected, neither player practiced on Wednesday.

Another player outlined on Tuesday with dealing with an injury was punter Pressley Harvin III with a hamstring injury. On Wednesday, the Steelers added punter Brad Wing to their practice squad which is a wise move if one of the specialists is dealing with an injury. On Wednesday, Harvin was listed as not participating.

Two players did not practice for the Steelers on Wednesday but it was not injury related as they were given the day off. Guard Isaac Seumalo and cornerback Patrick Peterson did not practice on Wednesday but should return for the Steelers to play in Houston.

There were three other players on the injury report who were not previously known to have an injury. Safety Miles Killebrew was limited with a knee injury on Wednesday while TE/FB Connor Heyward did not practice due to an ankle injury. Additionally, tackle Chuks Okorafor missed practice due to an elbow injury. As is the case with most of these injuries, their participation as the week goes on will determine their game status.
