The Pittsburgh Steelers are coming out of their 2023 bye week hoping to have a siginifcant number of players returning from injury. Not only do the Steelers have five players who did not play in Week 5 due to injury who they hope can return, two more players were moved to the designated to return portion on the Reserve/Injured List and could be available as soon as this week.

With the Steelers having a bonus practice on Monday with a padded practice on Wednesday, they are ramping things up in preparation to travel to Los Angeles to face the Rams. In the first injury report this week courtesy of, there are 8 names that appear on the list, but only two players were limited while none missed practice.

It should be noted that neither Diontae Johnson nor Anthony McFarland Jr. would have to appear on this list as they are still not back on the 53-man roster despite returning to practice. But on the report, the Steelers listed both players with the designation  they are in their 21-day practice window and were full participants in practice.

One of the two players who was limited on Wednesday was cornerback Patrick Peterson but it was not injury related. Typically getting the day off on Wednesday, Peterson was listed as limited in practice meaning he did not participate in all aspects.

The other player limited for the Steelers was linebacker Nick Herbig who is dealing with a hamstring injury. Herbig did miss a portion of the Steelers’ Week 5 game against the Baltimore Ravens as he was injured on a special teams play.

Otherwise, the Steelers had four more players who were listed due to coming off injuries but were full participants. Punter Pressley Harvin was a full participant with his hamstring injury which had him miss the last two games. Guard James Daniels who missed the last two games as well was also a full participate coming off of his groin injury. The other two players, Dan Moore Jr. (knee) and Pat Freiermuth (hamstring), were also full participants after missing Week 5. The other player who missed Week 5 due to injury was defensive end DeMarvin Leal who was in the NFL concussion protocol but has since been cleared and does not appear on the report.
