Thursday Night Injury Report: Rams at Steelers

The Steelers Injury list is relatively short this week.  They are heading into week 16 pretty healthy.  Minus Ben Roethlisberger’s status up in the air this team is pretty well set for who is in and out.  LaMarr Woodley returned to practice.  I will have to tell April to calm down.  Woodley could not practice a day after a game.  Rest the hamstring.  Rest.  Here is the injury report.

Brown Looks To Make Franchise History As Steelers Offense Struggles

Photo

With just 16 receiving yards Saturday against the Rams, Steelers WR Antonio Brown will make history.

When he goes over 1,000 yards for the first time in his career, he and teammate Mike Wallace will become the first Steelers receivers ever to reach the century plateau together, when neither of them were first-round draft picks.

Hines Ward and Santonio Holmes each had over 1,000 yards receiving in 2009 (Holmes 1,248, Ward 1,167), four years after the Steelers selected Holmes with the 25th overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft.

Ward and Plaxico Burress each topped 1,000 yards in 2002 (Ward 1,329 and Burress 1,325) and 2001 (Ward 1,003 and Burress 1,008).

Brown became the second fastest receiver to reach the 1,000 career yards plateau in Week 10 of this season. It took him 19 games, while Wallace hit that mark in his 21st game, Week 7 of the 2010 season. It took Buddy Dial 18 games in 1961-62 to reach 1,000.

While it's unlikely the duo will meet Burress and Ward's record of 2,654 yards as Steelers teammates, they have played in a combined 68 games, while Burress and Ward had played 90 games together when they set their mark.

The individual pieces of this offense seem greater than the sum of their whole right now. Despite a bevy of playmakers, the Steelers are 22nd in the NFL in scoring offense, averaging 20.4 points a game. In the six quarters since Ben Roethlisberger injured his ankle in Week 14, the Steelers have scored 10 points.

Injuries across the offensive line can share some of the blame for sagging offensive production. Most recently, C Maurkice Pouncey has missed all or parts of the team's last four games. Pittsburgh was a top 10 team in rushing attempts last season, but are 21st this year, with 370 (26.4 carries a game).

Pouncey says he expects to play Saturday after missing Week 15, but Roethlisberger may not. He spoke after practice Wednesday, and told the gathered media he has not been told he isn't playing, and will prepare to start unless he hears otherwise.

Roethlisberger’s status remains unknown

Only one thing currently is known regarding the status of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for Saturday’s game against the Rams:  Roethlisberger didn’t practice on Wednesday, 13 days after spraining his ankle. Beyond that, it’s unclear whether he’ll play. On Wednesday, NFL Network reported that team officials would be “shocked” if Roethlisberger plays.  But Roethlisberger remains…

Roethlisberger Expects To Play Saturday

PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — Despite reports that Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will miss Saturday’s game against St. Louis because of a high-ankle sprain, he says he’ll be rested and ready to play.

“I’ve said many times I want to go and I will try to be ready to go,” Roethlisberger said, according to the Steelers official website. “I think if you rest you obviously can hopefully improve and get yourself to a higher percentage. But I like to be out there, I want to be out there with the guys. I want to get the reps.

“I want to work on little things that we need to work on to hopefully get ready for January football.”

Some reports suggested that Roethlisberger might even sit out the rest of the regular season — against St. Louis and then at Cleveland to end the year. He says, though, that he feels better than expected after playing at San Francisco Monday Night.

Roethlisberger missed most of last week’s practices with a Grade 1 high-ankle sprain suffered against Cleveland on Thursday Night Football the prior week. He saw some limited practice time and ended up starting and playing every offensive snap Monday.

This time around he says the injury isn’t nearly as severe.

“I didn’t think I’d be able to walk yesterday and today, but actually it feels a lot better than I thought it would,” he said.

Other injury news:

  • Roethlisberger (ankle), cornerback Curtis Brown (knee), running back Mewelde Moore (knee) and linebacker LaMarr Woodley (hamstring) sat out of practice Wednesday.
  • Center Maurkice Pouncey (ankle) and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (foot) were limited in practice Wednesday.
