New, comments

The preparation for the Detroit Lions in Week 8 continues, and it is time to update the injury report.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are preparing to hit the prime time scene for the first time this season when they play the Detroit Lions on Sunday Night Football, and when it comes to injuries, the Steelers are sitting pretty.

Comparing the Thursday practice report to the Wednesday report, there isn’t much difference at all. JuJu Smith-Schuster practiced fully for the second straight day, which likely means he is good-to-go for the Week 8 game at Ford Field. David DeCastro also returned to practice after his wife gave birth to a daughter.

However, the big three who missed practice Wednesday, Marcus Gilbert, Vance McDonald and Stephon Tuitt all missed practice again. Tuitt has already been ruled out for the game Sunday, per reports, but it isn’t looking good for McDonald or Gilbert either.

As for the Lions, their injury report is a lot longer, and could have a pair of tackles missing the game Sunday.

Check out both full injury reports below, and stay tuned to BTSC for the final injury reports on Friday.
