Week 5 Injury Report (Jaguars)

Posted Oct 6, 2017

A look at player injuries and practice participation for Week 5.

Tackle Marcus Gilbert had an up and down week in practice, He was a full participant on Wednesday, and then missed practice on Thursday and Friday with a hamstring injury that held him out the last two weeks, and is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Jaguars at Heinz Field.

If Gilbert can't go, it will once again be Chris Hubbard who steps in at right tackle. Hubbard has started the last two games in Gilbert's absence, last week helping to block for Le'Veon Bell who rushed for 144 yards.

"He has been doing an excellent job," said Maurkice Pouncey. "He is playing multiple positions, guard, tackle, tight end. It's not as easy as it looks. He is an accountable player, goes out there and gets his job done and works his butt off. I respect him a lot.

"He is football smart. That is the good thing about him. That is why he can play multiple positions. He locks in and gets his guy. There are different spaces when you play different positions. When you are at tackle there is more space for guys to beat you, when you are at tight end you can really block guys and hone in on them. It's special what he can do. It adds value to him."

If Hubbard lines up at tackle, look for B.J. Finney to once again report as eligible as the blocking tight end, a role that Hubbard normally holds down.

Last week Mike Mitchell was inactive, also because of a hamstring injury. This week Mitchell has been a full participant in practice, and should be good to go on Sunday against the Jaguars. James Harrison, who was also inactive last week battling a bug that hit several players, was also back as a full participant in practice this week.

Sean Davis, Ramon Foster and Stephon Tuitt all missed practice on Wednesday, but were full go the rest of the week. Bud Dupree, Jesse James and Ryan Shazier were limited on Wednesday, but they were full participants the rest of the week as well.

Here is the current injury report for the Steelers' Week 5 game vs. Jacksonville.
