The Pittsburgh Steelers have now wrapped up their Thursday practice ahead of their Sunday night home game against the Kansas City Chiefs and their daily injury report unfortunately includes one new player listed on it.
Not practicing once again on Thursday were center/guard Cody Wallace (knee), cornerback Senquez Golson (foot), safety Robert Golden (hamstring), linebacker Ryan Shazier (knee), guard Ramon Foster (chest), safety Sean Davis (back), and wide receiver Eli Rogers (toe). As things stand right now, all seven of those players are very unlikely to be ready to play Sunday night against the Chiefs.
With Golden and Davis still unable to practice, it’s looking more and more like safety Jordan Dangerfield might make his first career start Sunday night as he has reportedly been receiving first-team reps this week in practice.
Limited again on Thursday was fullback Roosevelt Nix (back) and thus it’s looking like he might miss a fourth straight game.
Guard B.J. Finney (finger) was also limited on Thursday after suffering a finger injury during practice and was thus added to the team’s injury report. Should Finney ultimately be unable to make his first career start Sunday night against the Chiefs, reserve offensive lineman Chris Hubbard will likely have to start in his place at left guard being as Foster is currently expected to be inactive.
Finney, by the way, hurt a ring finger and it’s currently in a splint.
Linebacker Lawrence Timmons (shin) practiced fully again on Thursday and should be ready to play Sunday night.
