The Pittsburgh Steelers need a win in a bad way. After dropping 3 straight games, the team doesn’t have an easy task ahead of them. In fact, they have one of the hottest teams in the NFL coming to Heinz Field in Week 10, and that would be none other than the 7-1 Dallas Cowboys.
With their current state, the Steelers need all hands on deck for this upcoming game, and unfortunately they will be short-handed once again. Something which has become all too familiar for the black and gold.
Check out the final injury report for Pittsburgh heading into Week 10:
Markus Wheaton (shoulder), DeAngelo Williams (knee), Jordan Dangerfield (groin), Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot) are all out for Sunday.— Ray Fittipaldo (@rayfitt1) November 11, 2016
Markus Wheaton (shoulder) continues to be hampered by his shoulder injury, and after being considered a healthy scratch in Week 9, and a full participant Wednesday, his practice participation decreased to the point where he sat out Friday’s practice. Not good new for the player who was supposed to be the team’s No. 2 wide receiver this season, but also in a contract year.
DeAngelo Williams, as was written here Thursday evening, underwent knee surgery and will be out of the lineup for the foreseeable future. Joining Williams on the shelf in Week 10 are Jordan Dangerfield (groin) and Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot).
Other than those injuries, the Steelers are a relatively healthy group. Sammie Coates looks primed to return to his big play self, and Fitzgerald Toussaint will step in to spell Le’Veon Bell if necessary.
Maurkice Pouncey, who missed Wednesday and Thursday practice after surgery on his dislocated thumb, was a full participant and not even listed on the team’s final injury report. Ben Roethlisberger was also not listed, and looks to be primed and ready to go at 4:25 p.m. EDT when the Steelers and Cowboys square off.
