Week 1 Injury Report (Bills)

The Steelers head into the first week of the NFL season with a good outlook health-wise, and despite some making their way onto the injury report during the week, they head into the game with a similar good outlook health-wise,

Defensive end Tyson Alualu (elbow), center Kendrick Green (thumb) and linebacker Alex Highsmith (groin) were all full participants in practice on Friday. Receiver James Washington was added to the injury report with a finger injured, which had him listed as limited on Friday. He isn't on the status report, though.

The team wrapped up the main portion of their preparation on Friday at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex for the game against the Buffalo Bills, and Coach Mike Tomlin liked what they accomplished.

"Good Friday work for us," said Tomlin after practice. "We focused on some situational football, red zone, goal line, short yardage and things of that nature. The plays that are weighted a little bit differently, those meaningful plays, those point related plays. We kind of focus our energies and efforts on a Friday in that area.

"Had a good day, but the work's not over. We'll continue to get better above the neck here in the next 48 hours in preparation for game time."
