The Steelers will be playing for their playoff lives this Saturday when they travel to Indianapolis to face the Colts in Week 15.

In their first practice of the week beforehand, they were without four of their stars.

Quarterback Kenny Pickett is the obvious one of those four that will continue missing time with the ankle injury he sustained against the Arizona Cardinals. Also amongst those four players were running back Najee Harris, linebacker Elandon Roberts, and left guard Isaac Seumalo.

Harris was dealing with a knee injury last week, and that has carried over into this week, as well. The same can be said with Elandon Roberts and his groin injury, as well as Seumalo’s shoulder injury.

An additional four Steelers were limited in practice. Safety Damontae Kazee is dealing with an ankle injury. Linebacker Alex Highsmith is in concussion protocol, as is fellow edge rusher T.J. Watt. And finally, interior defensive linemen Keeanu Benton and Cam Heyward were limited, as well. Benton has an oblique injury, while Heyward has usually been limited early in the week to rest with the groin injury he sustained in Week 1.

The full injury report is as follows.

  • QB Kenny Pickett (ankle): DNP
  • RB Najee Harris (knee): DNP
  • S Damontae Kazee (ankle): LP
  • CB James Pierre (shoulder): FP
  • LB Elandon Roberts (groin): DNP
  • LB Alex Highsmith (concussion): LP
  • G Isaac Seumalo (shoulder): DNP
  • LB T.J. Watt (concussion): LP
  • DT Keeanu Benton (oblique): LP
  • DT Cam Heyward (groin): LP
