The Steelers started their week preparing for Sunday games against Oakland Raiders who knew one thing for sure. They will not run back James Conner available.
Coach Mike Tomlin has already ruled Conner with a footbike as he said, “It’s probably a little more important than we thought.” After the charge game, it thought it had been a contusion, but the ban is something that will keep him sideways this week.
The team will rely on Jaylen Samuels, who said he expects to start, and Stevan Ridley on Sunday. Trey Edmunds, signed by the team’s training group on Tuesday, is also available.
“Ridley is a guy who has been around the league for a while,” says Ben Roethlisberger. “He has a little NFL experience. He has been here for a while now. Samuels is someone new to the game, big guy guy we use in the appropriate game. We have specific games and packages with him because we want to throw the ball.
“It will be interesting to see how they want to use them both forwards. I think it will be great for everyone to get some reps and keep each other fresh. “
Cameroon Canaday, who suffered a knee injury to the ladder but returned to action, was a full participant in practice on Wednesday. Canada’s breathing sighs after thinking the worst, fearing his career can be over with a serious knee injury.
“Everything hurts very quickly,” said Canadians. “I began to think of all my hopes and dreams that are developing. The worst part is unknown. You go to the doctor and they evaluate your knee. They do not know what’s happening, you do not know what’s going on. I know I heard a pop. “
Roosevelt Nix was a full walk in practice with a shoulder injury and Morgan Burnett returned after missing back injury last week. Ryan Switzer, who was in the brainwashing protocol, was also a full participant.
Part of getting out of the protocol is physical work, so he gets the opportunity to do some of these things, “said Tomlin during his weekly conference.” We are optimistic about his inclusion, but we allow the process to continue its course. “
Anthony Chickillo, who injured his ankle in the game, did not train. Marcus Gilbert, who missed the last six matches with knee injury, is still sideways and did not work.
In addition, Maurkice Pouncey, Antonio Brown and Joe Haden did not perform all the coaches decision to give them free day.
