Here’s a full breakdown of Steelers injury report for Wednesday, January 10 ahead of their meeting with the Buffalo Bills on Super Wild Card Weekend.
Steelers injury report: Wednesday, Jan. 10
DNP: OLB T.J. Watt (knee), RB Najee Harris (knee), LG Isaac Seumalo (shoulder)
Limited: CB Patrick Peterson (rest), DT Cam Heyward (rest), DT Larry Ogunjobi (rest), LB Elandon Roberts (pectoral)
Full: S Minkah Fitzpatrick (knee)
There’s some bad news and good news on this week’s injury report. The bad news is that they’re set to play this game without star edge rusher T.J. Watt, who suffered a knee injury in Week 18’s win over the Ravens. After imaging, it was deemed likely that Watt would miss a “couple of weeks” with a sprained MCL. Mike Tomlin has already ruled Watt out for Sunday’s contest, though it’s unclear if he’d be available should they advance to the divisional round.
Also having missed are left guard Isaac Seumalo (shoulder) and running back Najee Harris (knee), though fans shouldn’t be too panicked. Both players have been dealing with their respective injuries for several weeks, with their practice reps managed throughout the week, though there’s been no effect on their availability during games. Seumalo has played 100% of snaps in each of the past five games since initially suffering the injury back in Week 13. Meanwhile, Harris has logged 26+ carries in each of the past two weeks.
Luckily, in addition to reinstating safety Damontae Kazee to the active roster following his suspension, they’ll also look to get back Minkah Fitzpatrick, who’s missed each of the past three weeks with a knee injury. Fitzpatrick logged a full practice session for the first time since the injury on Wednesday — a positive sign of his potential availability for Sunday’s game.
