There wasn’t any practice in Pittsburgh on Monday as the Steelers got back to business faster than usual to prepare for the Tennessee Titans on Thursday night. But the organization still releases an injury report.

In other words, they’re guessing what the report would have looked like if they were to have held even a walk-through, let alone a full practice.

Although early, the short week leaves very little wiggle room for players to get back in the saddle and prove they’re healthy enough for the Thursday night game. But the Steelers look as if they might be without two starters in the secondary vs. the Titans.

Joe Haden has already been ruled out with a broken fibula, but Mike Tomlin stated in his weekly press conference that they’re not ruling out Mitchell possibly returning vs. Tennessee. As for the other injuries, practice on Tuesday and Wednesday will ultimately dictate who plays and who sits.

Check out the full injury reports for both the Steelers and Colts below:
