Steelers Injury Report: Pittsburgh is about as healthy as possible heading into Week 1

The Pittsburgh Steelers are a healthy football team heading into Week 1 — exactly what fans want after the preseason.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are finally preparing for a regular-season game, as opposed to those preseason contests which are only celebrated when star players leave the contests unscathed.

After four preseason games, the Steelers are about as healthy as can be expected, and if you count preseason success as an indicator of team health, you can say Pittsburgh’s preseason was a huge success.

The only player listed on the Steelers’ injury report was Vance McDonald, who has missed the entire preseason with a nagging foot injury. This was his first practice participation, albeit limited, since injuring the appendage in training camp.

This is great news for players like Mike Hilton, Sean Davis, Morgan Burnett, T.J. Watt and others who have been held out of workouts or preseason games due to various nagging injuries. Considering how the human body responds to a particular workload, the Steelers got the first work week of the regular season off on the right foot.

Both the Steelers and Browns will practice Thursday, and the final injury report will be released after Friday’s practice.

Check out the full, and official, injury reports for both teams below:

LB James Burgess — Concussion — DNP
