Week 2 Injury Report (Vikings)

Posted Sep 15, 2017

A look at player injuries and practice participation for Week 2.

Coach Mike Tomlin said during his weekly press conference that if Stephon Tuitt was able to practice at all during the week, and if it was safe for him to play, they would 'leave the light on' for him.

Tuitt did see limited action in practice on Friday, after missing practice on Wednesday and Thursday, and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings at Heinz Field. Tuitt suffered a biceps injury in the early moments of the season opener against the Cleveland Browns last week.

If needed, Tyson Alualu and L.T. Walton, who both saw additional playing time when Tuitt went down last week, are ready to go this week.

"Any time you can go, you go," said Alualu. "I always had that mentality. I am trying to keep it up and be out there for my teammates and do my job when I am called upon. I have always prepared to go out there and do the best I can, do my job. Whatever the coaches ask of me and be accountable to the players I am next to.

"I think we have the right group of guys to step up and do their job the best way they can."

J.J. Wilcox, who suffered a concussion against the Browns and missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday, worked in a limited role on Friday and is questionable for Sunday.

Vance McDonald practiced on Wednesday, but was held out of practice on Thursday and Friday with a back injury, and is also questionable for the Vikings game.

Bud Dupree, who missed the Browns game with a shoulder injury, was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday, but was a full participant on Friday. Safety Sean Davis was a limited participant in practice on Thursday with an ankle injury, but he too was a full participant in practice on Friday.

Here is the current injury report for the Steelers' Week 2 game vs. Minnesota.
