Steelers vs Redskins Injury Report

Updated: A finalized injury and suspension report for the Steelers @ Redskins 2016 Week 1 opening game.

Washington Redskins

Doctson, Josh (WR) – Questionable
Golston, Kedric (NT) – Questionable
Jones, Matt (RB) – Questionable
Long, Spencer (G) – Questionable
Reyes, Kendall (DE) – Questionable

Pittsburgh Steelers

Senquez Golson (CB) – Out
Roosevelt Nix (RB) – Out
Cody Wallace (C) – Out
Markus Wheaton (WR) – Out

Noteworthy:
As you can see, the Steelers are a bit more beat up going into week 1 compared to the Redskins with a few injuries to major contributors.  Earlier in the week, it was thought that Wheaton was going to play.  He must have had a setback.  The Steelers will also be without Le’Veon Bell (3 games) and Martavis Bryant (1 year) due to suspensions.
