The Pittsburgh Steelers have released their final injury report prior to the AFC Championship game against the New England Patriots, and things are looking up for the black and gold.
The stomach flu did it’s damage to the Steelers throughout the week, but hasn’t kept any players off the field — yet. However, it did make Ladarius Green’s current situation rather interesting. Green practiced Wednesday on a limited basis, was sick Thursday, and returned to practice Friday, but remains in the NFL’s concussion protocol. He still needs to be cleared by an independent neurologist, but he is traveling to Gillette Stadium with the team, and is listed as questionable on the team’s injury report.
Green would be a welcome addition for the Steelers, even if on a part-time role. Green could certainly help the team’s red-zone offense, which struggled mightily in the Divisional round against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Other than the unknown status of Green, the Steelers are a relatively healthy football team. James Harrison is listed as questionable with a shoulder and triceps injury, as is Fitzgerald Toussaint with a concussion.
Other than those three players, the Steelers haven’t ruled out any players, or list anyone as doubtful. For the full injury report for both the Steelers and Patriots, see the full official reports below.
