Steelers Injury Report: Foster Questionable, Archer Doubtful

The Pittsburgh Steelers have wrapped up their Friday practice in preparation for their Sunday night road game against the Carolina Panthers and the final injury report of the week includes one player listed as doubtful and another listed as questionable

Running back Dri Archer (ankle), who was limited most of the week in practice with an ankle injury, ends the week listed as doubtful and will be inactive Sunday night. This will be the second consecutive game that the rookie will miss.

Guard Ramon Foster (ankle) was limited once again on Friday and he ends the week listed as questionable. It appears as though his status will be determined a few hours prior to kickoff.

Foster told the media that while he only went through individual drills on Friday, he still hopes to play Sunday night but that ultimately head coach Mike Tomlin will make the final decision. Foster hurt his ankle during Monday’s practice.

Should Foster be unable to play against the Panthers, backup center Cody Wallace would more than likely get the start at left guard. In addition, second-year offensive lineman Chris Hubbard would likely dress for the game as well. Hubbard has been inactive for the first two games of the season along with rookie offensive lineman Wesley Johnson.

Rounding out the Streelers injury report and listed as probable are wide receiver Martavis Bryant (shoulder), nose tackle Steve McLendon (shoulder), wide receiver Lance Moore (groin) defensive end Brett Keisel (not injury related), tight end Heath Miller (not injury related), safety Troy Polamalu (not injury related).

Moore, who missed the first two games of the season due to an injured groin, looks like he will make his Steelers debut Sunday night after practicing fully all week.
