The Pittsburgh Steelers have wrapped up their Thursday practice as they continue to prepare to play the New England Patriots Sunday night at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough and the team’s injury report shows that one player has been added to the one that was listed on Wednesday.
After not practicing again on Thursday, safety Sean Davis (ankle) seems like he’s very doubtful to play in the Steelers 2019 regular season opener against the Patriots. Should Davis indeed wind up being sidelined Sunday night, safety Kameron Kelly is likely to start in his place. Kelly is a first-year player who has never played in a regular season game.
Joining Davis on the Steelers Thursday injury report is inside linebacker Mark Barron (coaches decision), who reportedly missed practice. Hopefully Barron just need to be excused for the day with him not being listed with any kind of injury. We’ll see if he’s able to return to practice on Friday before speculating further.
While rookie running back Benny Snell Jr. reportedly “walked extremely carefully through the Steelers locker room Thursday afternoon with his right foot taped,” according to Jacob Klinger of pennlive.com, he was not added to the Steelers injury report and that’s a great sign.
