Steelers Injury Report: Le'Veon Bell out, Will Johnson and Jarvis Jones are probable

Justin K. Aller

Fullback Will Johnson (hamstring) and OLB Jarvis Jones are listed as probable on the Steelers' most recent injury report. Le'Veon Bell is out and Heath Miller is doubtful.

Steelers rookie running back Le'Veon Bell (foot) was previously ruled out of Sunday's Week 1 game against the Tennessee Titans. Fullback Will Johnson (hamstring), though, was listed as probable in the most recent injury report, but still may not see much action.

Jarvis Jones (chest) will play, as will defensive end Brett Keisel (non-injury related), despite both being limited this week in practice.

Tight end Heath Miller is listed as doubtful, and wasn't ever expected to play. He was taken off the PUP list last week, and is going through individual workouts. No word is set on when he will make his debut this season.

"I did everything I could but I didn't get any team reps, except on special teams," Johnson told Ralph N. Paulk. "I haven't been ruled out of the game, so physically I think could play. I don't feel any restrictions, so I'm just waiting for the green light."

If Johnson is held back in this game, the Steelers may use formations in which David Paulson motions into the lead blocking spot on the field on running plays. It would be hard for Paulson to mimic Johnson's pass patterns, and without the two of them on the field at once, it would take away some of the dynamic ability they'd otherwise have.
