AFC Divisional Round Injury Report (Jaguars)

Posted Jan 12, 2018

A look at player injuries and practice participation for the AFC Divisional Round Game.

The Steelers headed into the week with an injury report that was minimal as they prepare for Sunday's AFC Divisional Round Game against Jacksonville at Heinz Field, but as the week played out, that quickly changed.

Originally B.J. Finney was the only player who was expected to be limited during the week as he is battling a thigh injury suffered in the Browns game. Finney was limited on Wednesday, but after that was a full participant.

But after practice on Wednesday, the injury report got a little more crowded. And on Thursday, it grew again.

Both Artie Burns and Stephon Tuitt were limited in practice on Wednesday, and held out completely on Thursday, Burns with a knee injury and Tuitt with an elbow injury. But they were both full participants on Friday. Javon Hargrave was held out of practice on Thursday, but was back to work on Friday.

"Artie Burns was a full participant today and looked good," said Coach Mike Tomlin. "It was something minor so hopefully I can just keep building on it."

Burns was very upbeat after practice on Friday.

"I should be 100 percent," said Burns. "I felt good out there. All of my movement was good."

Tuitt was just as positive.

"I feel really good," said Tuitt. "I'll be ready to go."

Antonio Brown was back to work this week, a full participant in practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but held out and sent home on Friday with an illness. He is listed as questionable, although when asked if he expected him to play on Sunday Tomlin said yes.

"Antonio has looked really good," said Tomlin. "He didn't participate today. I sent him home with an illness. I didn't want him to get any of the guys that weren't sick, sick. We'll bring him back in the building tomorrow. I don't have a lot of reservations about him from a physical health standpoint. We do need to get him well from an illness standpoint."

Tomlin said he isn't concerned about the amount of practice time that Brown has under his belt this week, since he hasn't played for almost a month.

"I think we have all seen Antonio play enough that we know what he is capable of," said Tomlin.

Here is the current injury report for the Steelers' AFC Divisional Playoff game vs. Jacksonville.
