At one point during the second half L.J. Fort and Vince Williams were the team’s inside linebackers as Shazier has been on and off the field due to his knee injury.
Foster, who entered the game with an elbow injury, was replaced at left guard by B.J. Finney.
The Steelers trail the Eagles 13-3 at halftime and head coach Mike Tomlin is expected to update all of the team’s injuries at the conclusion of the game.
