For those waiting to hear about a miracle recovery for one of the Pittsburgh Steelers walking wounded, well, I hope you weren't holding your breath while you waited. The Steelers have wrapped up their final day of practice, and have already ruled out 7 players for their Week 4 game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday Night Football.
Status report for @Steelers: FB Nix, C Wallace, CB Golson, S Golden, ILB Shazier, G Foster, WR Rogers all are out.— Bob Labriola (@BobLabriola) September 30, 2016
The complete list of players who are ruled out are: Roosevelt Nix (back), Senquez Golson (foot), Ryan Shazier (knee), Ramon Foster (chest), Robert Golden (hamstring) and Eli Rogers (toe). Do the math, and you have 3 starters who will missing the game in prime time Sunday.
The bright spot from this report is rookie Sean Davis (back) and B.J. Finney are both listed as being available for the game Sunday. Davis didn't practice all week until Friday, and Finney was limited with a finger injury, but stated he wouldn't let a finger injury keep him from making his first NFL start of his young career.
The Steelers will have some new looks to their defense, and how they adjust could ultimately be the deciding factor in this big AFC game. Stay tuned to BTSC for the latest and greatest surrounding the Steelers leading up to kickoff Sunday night.
