Steelers injury report: Keisel back, Woodley, Gilbert limited

Andy Lyons

The Steelers may see the return of Brett Keisel and Shamarko Thomas Thursday when they take on Baltimore.

The Steelers may get a few defensive players back for their Thanksgiving Night showdown with division rival Baltimore.

Defensive end Brett Keisel practiced fully Tuesday, a prerequisite for him getting back on the field. Rookie safety Shamarko Thomas also practiced fully, both are good signs the pair will be available Thursday.

LaMarr Woodley, however, did not, creating a belief he will miss his third consecutive game with a calf injury.

Right tackle Marcus Gilbert was also limited with an ankle injury, presumably the same one that's held him back in practice the last few weeks. It doesn't appear right now Gilbert will be a risk to miss the game. If he would, that could be a big factor in this game. Pittsburgh's offensive line has played considerably better the last two weeks in pass protection, allowing just one sack and only a little bit of pressure. Ben Roethlisberger has responded by completing 51-of-79 for 584 yards with six touchdown passes and no turnovers.
