Steelers predict 6 players would have been out for practice on Monday

The Pittsburgh Steelers are coming off of an embarassing home loss to the Cardinals where several key players were knocked out of the game. But with their next matchup on Thursday, the Steelers have limited time to game plan and get players healthy enough to suit up.

In the first injury report this week courtesy of Steelers.com, it is a hypothetical list as the Steelers did not actually practice the day following a game. Regardless, there are nine names that appear on the list, with one player estimated as being limited while six would have missed practice.

** Monday’s report is an estimation, the Steelers did not hold practice

With Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin holding his weekly press conference on Monday, he already announced that quarterback Kenny Pickett would be out for Thursday’s game. For this reason, it’s not a surprise to see Pickett would not have practiced.

There were three other players Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin mentioned in his press conference on Monday who he deemed as questionable for Thursday night. The three players were guard Isaac Seumalo with a shoulder injury, linebacker Elandon Roberts with a groin injury, and cornerback James Pierre with a shoulder injury. On Monday’s estimated report, all three players were listed as not practicing.

The other two players listed as not practicing on Monday came with a “not injury related” status for at least part of the reasoning. Cornerback Patrick Peterson and defensive lineman Cam Heyward both were listed as not participating Monday although Heyward also had a designation of his groin injury.

The one player who was listed as limited for Monday’s estimated report was rookie defensive lineman Keeanu Benton. He is listed as having an oblique injury and was not known to be injured otherwise prior to this report.

Two other players landed on the injury report but were estimated to be full participants. Montravius Adams was estimated to be back from his ankle injury as coach Tomlin said he would be available on Thursday. Additionally, Minkah Fitzpatrick is dealing with his hand injury but was estimated he would not miss practice.

One player who is dealing with bumps and bruises but did not land on the injury report is outside linebacker T.J. Watt.

UPDATE: The Steelers added Mason Cole to the list at a later time as being limited with a neck injury.
