The Pittsburgh Steelers have now wrapped up their final practice of the week and their Friday injury report shows that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s home game against the Cleveland Browns.
Roethlisberger, who suffered a sprained left foot this past Sunday in the fourth quarter of the game against the Oakland Raiders, was limited once again on Friday. Should Roethlisberger sit out Sunday against the Browns, backup Landry Jones will make his second career start.
As far as the rest of the Steelers injury report goes, linebacker Ryan Shazier (knee), running back DeAngelo Williams (foot), tackle Marcus Gilbert (toe), wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey (hamstring), fullback/tight end Will Johnson (back), tight end Heath Miller (not injury related), running back Isaiah Pead (knee) and nose tackle Steve McLendon (elbow) all ended the week listed as probable.
Williams, who battled inflammation in one of this feet earlier in the week, practiced fully again on Friday, so he should be good to go this week.
There was some concern that Shazier wouldn’t be able to answer the bell this week being as he sat out on Wednesday and Thursday. However, being as he ends the week listed as probable, odds are probably good that he’ll dress and play Sunday against the Browns.
Ruled out on Friday for Sunday’s game are linebacker James Harrison (knee), tight end Matt Spaeth (knee), linebacker Terence Garvin (knee), and safety Shamarko Thomas (knee).
This will mark the first game that Harrison has missed this season.
