The off week during a week eleven bye gave many of the Pittsburgh Steelers plenty of time to rest and heel. Therefore, the mid week injury report is markedly shorter than in previous weeks with only two players still questionable of playing this weekend against the Kansas City Chiefs.
The week twelve Wednesday injury report is as follows:
- Arnaz Battle (WR) – limited participation (hamstring)
- Troy Polamalu (SS) – full participation (rib)
- Ben Roethlisberger (QB) – limited participation (right thumb)
- Emmanuel Sanders (WR) – full participation (knee)
- LaMarr Woodley (OLB) – limited participation (hamstring)
Wide receiver Arnaz Battle is still questionable this week with a bad hamstring but the concern there is minimal since Emmanuel Sanders appears ready to return to the lineup. Another key component of the passing game, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, was limited Wednesday but is expected to play this week. Sunday's game will be a good test for the passing game as the Chiefs' defense is currently ranked 13th against the pass. There may be some alterations to the offensive formations as Roethlisberger is reportedly having issues receiving the ball under center.
On the defensive side of the ball, Troy Polamalu was a full participant in practice and expected to be close to 100% Sunday. LaMarr Woodley is still questionable with an injured hamstring but is expected to be ready. Even if Woodley plays and is less than 100%, this could be the first game since week four where the starting defense entered the game at full strength.
