Week 10 Injury Report (Panthers)

The Steelers will be without tackle Marcus Gilbert for the third straight week when they take on the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night at Heinz Field. Gilbert is still hampered by a knee injury and with the short week was unable to get on the field and practice this week.

With Gilbert out, Matt Feiler will make his third straight start at right tackle. Feiler was able to get first team reps in practice on Tuesday and Wednesday, something that was extremely valuable to him.

“It’s huge,” said Feiler. “Making sure we are on the same page and laying down a foundation for what we are doing.

“I think it keeps my mind focused better, quicker. It keeps my mind focused on what I have to do and keeps me mentally prepared.”

James Washington was a full participant in practice for the second straight day after injuring his knee against the Ravens, and said he expects to play on Thursday night.

“I feel good,” said Washington. “I am ready to go. I am good to go.”

Washington had two receptions for 17 yards against the Ravens, but also missed on the first pass thrown his way. After that play Ben Roethlisberger had a talk with the rookie, and then went back to him, which helped Washington.

“That was good for me,” said Washington. “I was kind of down on myself. I was upset and mad. He gave me a little advice and next thing you know we were connected.”

Washington admits he still has to keep working to get to the level where Roethlisberger wants him, but being a rookie working with a 15-year veteran who has seen it all can be an adjustment.

“It’s coming along,” said Washington. “He wants perfection, and for myself I feel like I am not there yet, but I am working as hard as I can to get there for him. I watch film. I come in and meet with the coaches. It’s being in that environment with him and getting to know how he wants me to play.

“It has its ups and downs with him being so knowledgeable of the game. I am trying to get to that point, studying him. Talking to AB (Antonio Brown), just picking their brains and seeing how they think. As long as I am showing the coaches I am trying and giving 110 percent every day.”

Daniel McCullers missed practice for the second straight day and has been ruled out for Thursday night’s game as well.
