The Pittsburgh Steelers are now in full Week 2 mode as they Steelers took the practice field for their second day of preparation for the Las Vegas Raiders. In the second injury report of the week courtesy of the Steelers PR department, tight end Eric Ebron missed practice along with Carlos Davis while linebacker Robert Spillane returned as a full participant.
The fact no players on the Steelers missed practice on Wednesday due to injury was an encouraging sign, so with two players, one of which was a new addition to the injury report, missing on Thursday things are not a encouraging as the previous day. Eric Ebron was the player added to the list with a hamstring injury and did not practice.
Robert Spillane was a last minute scratch on Sunday as he suffered a shin injury in pregame warmups. Although limited on Wednesday, it is encouraging to see Spillane back on the field for practice as he was a full participant.
The other player who was limited in practice on Wednesday was defensive tackle Carlos Davis. Unfortunately, Davis is moving in the wrong direction to play this weekend as he did not practice on Thursday.
To nobody’s surprise, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, one of two players who did not practice on Wednesday as a coaches decision, along with wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster were both back as full participants on Thursday.
