The Pittsburgh Steelers had a fairly busy injury report ahead of their Week 15 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts, but luckily, it looks as though things have cleaned up fairly well ahead of gameday.
The team released their final injury report for the week, officially declaring quarterback Kenny Pickett for as out for Week 15. It was no surprise as HC Mike Tomlin announced that would be the case earlier this week, as he continues to recover following ankle surgery.
The only other player listed with a final injury designation was starting left guard Isaac Seumalo, who’s been dealing with a shoulder injury that he suffered in Week 13’s loss to the Cardinals. Seumalo was also listed as questionable with the injury ahead of Week 14, missing the team’s only practice of the week, though he did participate in their walk-through ahead of gameday. He wasn’t limited in any fashion during the game, logging 100% of snaps at left guard, allowing just a single pressure on 42 pass-blocking snaps. If Seumalo were unavailable for this outing, versatile OL Nick Herbig would likely step in at left guard in his place.
Meanwhile, all other players on the injury report were upgraded to full practice participants, including WR Diontae Johnson, who missed practice Wednesday with a knee injury, as well as EDGE rushers Alex Highsmith and T.J. Watt, who both cleared concussion protocol and have been cleared to play in Week 15.
Here’s a look at the Steelers' final injury report ahead of Week 15.
