Week 1 Injury Report (Patriots)

The Steelers are a relatively healthy team as they head into the season opener against the New England Patriots on Sunday night in Foxborough.

The only player on the injury report is Sean Davis, who didn’t practice for a third straight day and is doubtful for the game.

If Davis can’t go it will be Kam Kelly holding things down alongside strong safety Terrell Edmunds, while Mike Hilton will also get work in the nickel.

Kelly’s teammates have faith in him, and know if Davis isn’t out there he will hold things down. 

“Sean is a great guy. But we have other great guys that have to step in and make plays,” said Edmunds. “The next man has to step up. We are going against Tom Brady. We have to go out and compete.

“Kam is good. He is out there doing his thing every day in practice. His communication has been high. He is confident in himself. He is making everyone feel comfortable with him out there. I am happy to have him back out there with me. Hopefully we can make some plays on Sunday.”

If Kelly does start, it won’t just be his first NFL start, it will also be his first NFL game, signing with the Steelers after playing in the AAF this offseason. 

“I think very highly of Kam,” said Joe Haden. “He is a football player. He is good at making plays on the ball. He does both safety positions. He is very smart, understands the defense and makes plays on the ball. He led the team in picks in OTAs and camp. He is always around the ball. That is a good thing. He is playing a little of everything. Doing a little of everything. You have to be a smart football player to be able to do that.”
