Steelers Injury Report: Ryan Shazier to miss fourth consecutive game

New, comments

As the Pittsburgh Steelers prepare for the Arizona Cardinals, they will be doing so without their 2014 1st round draft pick Ryan Shazier, for the fourth consecutive game.

When the Arizona Cardinals invade Heinz Field Sunday for their Week 6 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Carson Palmer won't have to worry about the fast and athletic linebacker Ryan Shazier harassing him.

The Steelers released their final injury report before the game on Sunday, and Ryan Shazier will be missing his fourth consecutive game with a shoulder injury. The injury was sustained in the Week 2 win against the San Francisco 49ers, and he hasn't seen the field since.

Joining Shazier as 'out' are Ben Roethlisberger (knee) and Will Allen (ankle). Roethlisberger returned to practice on a limited basis this week, but is still a ways away before returning to the team as their starting quarterback. Allen's ankle injury doesn't bode well for the veteran safety and his return even next week, which means Robert Golden will be making his first start at safety in his NFL career.

Joining those ruled out of the game Sunday on the injury report were Jarvis Jones (hip) and Cortez Allen (knee) who were listed as questionable, and Daniel McCullers and James Harrison who are both listed as probable.

With Martavis Bryant's name not being seen on any injury report this week, it is an exciting time for Steelers fans as they will get their first look at Bryant in his second NFL season this Sunday.
