Steelers Injury Report: Juggling of players on report continues with Ramon Foster listed as questionable

New, comments

The Pittsburgh Steelers released their final injury report, and the juggling of names continues to be a trend leading into Week 3.

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

As most of you know, heading into the 2016 season, the NFL decided to eliminate the 'probable' tag from the injury report heading into a contest. On the surface this looked to be very innocent; however, it has led to even more vague and strange injury reports released on a weekly basis.

Thought Bill Belichick listing about half his roster as probable was annoying? Now you have almost every player with a bump or bruise listed as questionable on the injury report. This is what has happened with the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the rest of the NFL, as they prepare for the week ahead.

The day after Cameron Heyward was a surprise addition to the team's injury report, the final injury report which was released Friday, did not have Heyward listed, but did have guard Ramon Foster added with an elbow injury. The addition of Foster makes you wonder if this injury occurred in practice, whether he would have been a 'probable' injury in 2015, or if he truly is questionable to play on Sunday when the team plays the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 3.

Either way, check out the final injury reports for both the Steelers and Eagles entering Week 3:
