The Pittsburgh Steelers were back on the field Wednesday in preparation for their Sunday game in Baltimore against the Baltimore Ravens and the first injury report of the week is now out.
Practicing fully on Wednesday were wide receiver Antonio Brown (ankle) and safety Troy Polamalu (calf). For Polamalu it was the first full practice for him since injuring his calf in the Week 4 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Right now both players are on track to play.
Limited on Wednesday were quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (ribs,shoulder) and wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery (ribs). Roethlisberger has reportedly thrown the last two days on a very limited basis and his status for the game Sunday won\’t be known until later in the week.
Not practicing on Wednesday were guard Willie Colon (knee), tackle Mike Adams (ankle), tackle Max Starks (back), and linebacker LaMarr Woodley. Adams has already been ruled out for the game on Sunday by head coach Mike Tomlin and Woodley has already be termed doubtful.
Colon was expected to be rested at the first part of the week so it will not be surprising to see him not work on Thursday either. With Colon sidelined center Maurkice Pouncey said that he took snaps at left guard and that he would start there should Colon not be able to play Sunday. That would mean Doug Legursky would start at center if that happened. Starks reportedly was given a veterans day off to rest his back.
Kelvin Beachum is scheduled to start at right tackle with Adams down.
