The Pittsburgh Steelers will close out their 2016 regular season at home against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday and the team’s first injury report of Week 17 that was released on Wednesday shows that several players are being allowed to get healthy.
Not practicing on Wednesday were linebacker Anthony Chickillo (ankle), tackle Marcus Gilbert (not injury related), safety Robert Golden (ankle), defensive end Ricardo Mathews (ankle), safety Mike Mitchell (not injury related), quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (not injury related), linebacker Ryan Shazier (illness), and defensive end Stephon Tuitt (knee).
Limited on Wednesday were wide receiver Sammie Coates (hamstring), tight end Ladarius Green (concussion) and tight end Xavier Grimble (ribs).
Being as Tuitt, Green and Coates all missed the Steelers game against the Baltimore Ravens, there’s a good chance all three will sit out the finale against the Browns as well. Additionally, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin gave every indication on Tuesday that Roethlisberger, running back Le’Veon Bell, wide receiver Antonio Brown, and center Maurkice Pouncey will all be held out of Sunday’s game against the Browns as well.
