Steelers Injury Report: Roethlisberger Limited Thursday; Heyward, Gilbert Full Participants

Will Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (knee) ultimately play Sunday in the team’s road game against the Baltimore Ravens? I certainly don’t know the answer to that question and the team’s Thursday injury report, as expected, doesn’t provide any insight as it relates to that topic.

Roethlisberger practiced again on Thursday in a limited capacity and at this point one could easily speculate that he’ll be listed as questionable on Friday when the final injury report of the week is released.

It should be noted, however, that Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Thursday afternoon on Twitter that a source has told him that it appears Roethlisberger is indeed on track to start Sunday in Baltimore.

In other Thursday news related to the team’s injury report, center/guard Cody Wallace (knee) and running back DeAngelo Williams (knee) both failed to practice. This isn’t good news when it comes to Williams as he was listed as being limited on Wednesday. Williams missed the team’s pre-bye game against the New England Patriots with a knee injury.

Wide receiver Antonio Brown (hip), tackle Marcus Gilbert (ankle), defensive end Cameron Heyward (hamstring), safety Shamarko Thomas (groin) and wide receiver Markus Wheaton (shoulder) all practiced fully once again on Thursday and thus it’s looking like all five will play Sunday in Baltimore.

Guard David DeCastro (not injury related) also practiced fully on Thursday after sitting out Wednesday with a minor illness.
