The Steelers didn't practice on Monday as they prepare to take on the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday, but if they had practiced, according to the practice estimate there would have been multiple players sidelined due to injuries. Among those who wouldn't have practiced are cornerback Joe Haden (knee), receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (foot), tight end Zach Gentry (knee), running backs Jaylen Samuels (quad) and Trey Edmunds (hamstring) and linebacker Jayrone Elliott (illness).
During his weekly press conference, Coach Mike Tomlin said the following:
"Zach Gentry has a significant knee injury, still waiting on clarification in terms of what that means," said Tomlin. "It's safe to say he will not be available this week. Some of the other guys who went down in game and were able to come back or were in position to come back whether or not we chose to bring them back or not, Joe Haden and JuJu Smith-Schuster, we will let their availability during the course of the week be our guide in terms of their availability. We don't have a lot of physical work ahead of us this week. Wednesday's a significant day for guys who fall into that category in terms of the bumps and bruises associated with play. We had a number of guys who missed the game with pre-existing injuries, guys like Trey Edmunds and guys like Jaylen Samuels. I don't know their status as I sit here today. I'm sure we will provide some clarity for you guys tomorrow as we get into our work week if you will."
In addition, the following players would have been designated as did not practice, but not injury related: Ben Roethlisberger, Maurkice Pouncey, David DeCastro, Alejandro Villanueva, Eric Ebron, Cameron Heyward, Stephon Tuitt, Vince Williams and Tyson Alualu.
