The Pittsburgh Steelers have now wrapped up their Friday practice ahead of their Sunday road game against the Seattle Seahawks and the team’s final injury report of the week shows two players listed as questionable.
Tight end Matt Spaeth (knee) and linebacker Ryan Shazier (knee) are the two Steelers players with the questionable tag on Friday.
Spaeth has missed the Steelers last two games with a knee issue so he’s likely to be a game-time decision come Sunday. If Spaeth does sit out Sunday’s game, rookie tight end Jesse James will adsorb his snaps. James has dressed for each of the team’s last two games.
As for Shazier, he reportedly practiced on Friday and said “he is ready to go on Sunday”, according to Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The Steelers former first-round draft pick has registered 47 total tackles, 3 sacks and 2 forced fumbles in the six games that he has played in so far this season.
Ending the week listed as probable are linebacker James Harrison (knee), safety Shamarko Thomas (knee), linebacker Terence Garvin (knee) and cornerback Brandon Boykin (ankle). Boykin was listed as not practicing on Thursday, so he’s moving in the right direction as far as his participation goes as he obviously went full on Friday in order to get a probable tag to close out the week.
Status report for @Steelers: Spaeth (knee), Shazier (knee) are questionable; Harrison, Shamarko, Garvin, Boykin all probable
