Steelers Injury Report: Team is as healthy as they've been in recent years

New, comments

Heading into the weekend, the Steelers don't have any injuries that appear to be casting doubt on any player participating Sunday against the Vikings.

Usually these posts are written with a clenched teeth evenness. This player's out, but we knew that. That player is questionable but hasn't practiced the last two days. And so on.

The Steelers look to go into their Week 4 game against the Minnesota Vikings without one player on their active roster expected to miss the game.

Not wanting to put the time and effort into figuring out the last time that was, we'll aim for a broad target and say it's been a while.

Tight end Heath Miller has been limited, most likely as a precaution. Cortez Allen missed the last two games but has practiced fully. Same for Le'Veon Bell, who is all set to make his debut Sunday.

If not for the loss of three players earlier in the season - Maurkice Pouncey, Larry Foote and LaRod Stephens-Howling, one might dare to make the statement the Steelers are, in fact, healthy.

We won't send that missive here. Not until after the game, at least. Even then, we might not jinx it - we'll just make the blanket assumption Willie Colon or Chris Fumatu-Ma'Afala are hurt, wherever they happen to be.
