With the Pittsburgh Steelers being off on their bye this week they’re not required to file an injury report. With that being the case, we’ll file an injury report for them as the team gets rested up for their Week 12 game against the Seattle Seahawks.
QB Ben Roethlisberger (foot/knee) – PROBABLE – It’s been a tough season for Roethlisberger when it comes to the left side of his body, but the veteran is still able to roll himself out there and get things done. While Roethlisberger isn’t sure whether or not he’ll need to wear that giant left shoe against the Seahawks, he undoubtedly will play barring any kind of setback.
OLB James Harrison (knee) – QUESTIONABLE – The Steelers veteran linebacker missed his first game of the season this past Sunday against the Cleveland Browns due to some swelling in one of his knees. He missed two consecutive games last season due to a similar issue, so hopefully with the bye week mixed in here he’ll be ready to play against the Seahawks.
ILB Sean Spence (hamstring) – QUESTIONABLE – Spence injured a hamstring late in Sunday’s win over the Browns. His last play in the game was the Steelers final kickoff and it’s hard to tell on tape if that’s where he injured himself. Earlier this week, Spence said he hopes to practice next week and suit up for the Seahawks game.
ILB Terence Garvin (knee) – QUESTIONABLE – Garvin has missed the last four games with a knee injury that he suffered over a month ago during a Friday practice. He was able to return to the practice field last week as a limited participant so there’s probably some hope that he can go full after the bye and play against the Seahawks on special teams.
S Shamarko Thomas (knee) – QUESTIONABLE – Thomas sat out the Steelers game against the Browns with a knee injury after failing to practice at all during the week. There’s no word as to the severity of his injury so it’s hard to guess whether or not he’ll be able to practice and play in Week 12.
TE Matt Spaeth (knee) – QUESTIONABLE – Spaeth has missed the last two games with a knee issue and that’s not encouraging and makes you wonder if he may have needed some sort of minor procedure done. If the veteran is unable to practice fully next Wednesday, go ahead and count him out for the game against the Seahawks.
QB Landry Jones (ankle) – DOUBTFUL – Jones was knocked out of the game against the Browns with a left ankle injury and later needed an MRI. Judging by the replay, Jones twisted it pretty good when it was stepped on and reports this past week stated that he would likely be forced to sit out the game against the Seahawks with a severe ankle sprain.
