Kenny Pickett limited, 8 other Steelers don’t practice on Wednesday

The Pittsburgh Steelers exited Week 4 of the 2023 NFL with a miserable defeat and a plethora of injuries. There were several starters knocked out of the game and some players have already been ruled out for Sunday.

With the Steelers having a padded practice on Wednesday, there may be some players who were not able to participate at the same level if they were just in helmets. In the first injury report this week courtesy of, there are 10 names that appear on the list, 8 of which did not practice.

Pittsburgh Steelers Participation/Injury Report, Week 5

Wednesday, October 4

No. 6 P Pressley Harvin (Hamstring (Right)) – DNP
No. 8 QB Kenny Pickett (Knee) – Limted
No. 20 CB Patrick Peterson (NIR) – DNP
No. 55 LB Cole Holcomb (Back) – Limted
No. 65 OL Dan Moore Jr. (Knee) – DNP
No. 73 OL Isaac Seumalo (NIR) – DNP
No. 76 OL Chukwuma Okorafor (Elbow) – DNP
No. 78 OL James Daniels (Groin) – DNP
No. 88 TE Pat Freiermuth (Hamstring) – DNP
No. 98 DE DeMarvin Leal (Concussion) – DNP

Kenny Pickett was unable to finish the Steelers game last Sunday due to a knee injury. Fortunately it is only a bone bruise and Pickett was able to practice on Wednesday in a limited fashion and said after practice he plans to play this Sunday.

Two players who are not as fortunate as Pickett are offensive tackle Dan Moore Jr. with a knee injury and tight end Pat Freiermuth with a hamstring. Moore has already been ruled out for this week and Mike Tomlin said in his press conference on Tuesday that Freiermuth is doubtful to play. As expected, neither player practiced on Wednesday.

Defensive tackle DeMarvin Leal is in the NFL’s concussion protocol and did not practice on Wednesday. Leal’s ability to move through the protocol will depend on his participation, so the likelihood of him moving through things by Sunday will be much more difficult.

Two players who missed the Steelers Week 4 matchup were guard James Daniels with a groin injury and punter Pressley Harvin III who is dealing with a hamstring. On Wednesday, neither player was able to return to practice.

A player who was not expected to be on the report is linebacker Cole Holcomb who was limited on Wednesday with a back injury. Additionally, Chuks Okorafor did not practice Wednesday with an elbow issue, something that limtied his practice participation last week as well.

Surprisingly absent from the injury report is Larry Ogunjobi who has been listed every week with a foot injury. At least for Wednesday’s practice, Ogunjobi was back on the field.

Two players who 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 this week.
