Steelers injury report: Brett Keisel, Shamarko Thomas miss Wednesday practice

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

A bit healthier of an outlook in Week 12 than last week, the Steelers saw Ramon Foster and LaMarr Woodley return to practice Wednesday.

Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel (foot) and safety Shamarko Thomas (ankle) missed practice Wednesday as Pittsburgh prepared to take on AFC North rival Cleveland in Week 12.

Both players missed the Steelers' Week 11 win over the Detroit Lions with injuries they suffered the previous week.

Ramon Foster and LaMarr Woodley were both limited. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin mentioned all four players would at least be limited to start the week. He said that about wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders as well, but he was a full participant Wednesday.

Without all four of them, and with Sanders exiting in the first half, the Steelers managed to top the Lions, winning their second consecutive game. Facing a tough Browns team in Week 12, the Steelers have fought through an 0-4 start to sit one game behind the New York Jets (a team they've beaten this season) for the final wild card spot in the AFC.
