Despite a long list of names on the injury report at the start of the week, the Pittsburgh Steelers have only ruled out two names for their game against the Carolina Panthers on Thursday.

Gilbert will miss his third game in a row with a knee injury in Week 10 and fourth of the season so far, while McCullers is forced to sit for the first time this year after neither player was able to take part in practice this week in the run up to the game. Matt Feiler will start in place of Gilbert, while L.T. Walton should be expected to dress for only the second time this season with McCullers sidelined.
The rest of the injured names from earlier in the week were all full participants in training on Wednesday, albeit just a walk through session, and all are expected to play against the Panthers. Having been limited on Tuesday with an ankle injury, Ryan Switzer may yet have his snaps limited on game day if he is not fully recovered.
