Steelers injury report: Beachum, DeCastro miss Wednesday practice

Rob Carr

Kelvin Beachum and David DeCastro both missed practice, as did nose tackle Steve McLendon. LaMarr Woodley was limited, while Mike Adams and Le'Veon Bell practiced fully, according to Steelers Digest's Bob Labriola.

The Steelers injury situation didn't exactly improve from Tuesday to Wednesday.

Left tackle Kelvin Beachum and right guard David DeCastro missed practice again, adding to the distinct possibility they may not be available for Pittsburgh's Week 14 game against the Miami Dolphins.

Cody Wallace is already starting at center, replacing Fernando Velasco, who was lost for the season after suffering an Achilles injury against Baltimore in Week 13. Eric Olsen was signed Saturday, and is listed as Wallace's back-up.

Brett Keisel missed practice, along with nose tackle Steve McLendon. Keisel missed Weeks 11-12, and only played a handful of snaps against Baltimore before being removed.

The Steelers can look optimistically at the return of running back Le'Veon Bell, who suffered a concussion as the result of a vicious collision with two Ravens defenders in their Week 13 game. Bell will still have required IMPACT tests he'll need to pass before being allowed to play, but the fact he's practicing is a step in a positive direction.
