Week 11 Injury Report (Browns)

The Steelers wrapped up their preparation for Thursday night’s game against the Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium and are hitting the road for Cleveland today.

They will go into the game, though, without several players as Benny Snell (knee), Roosevelt Nix (knee) and Ryan Switzer (back) have been ruled out.

In addition, Joe Haden was added to the status report, missing practice on Wednesday because of an illness and questionable for the game.

James Conner, however, is expected to play and isn’t listed on the status report this week. Conner missed the last two games, but returned as a full participant in practice this week.

“He looked good,” said Mason Rudolph. “If he is able to go, that would be great. But we have a lot of confidence in our other backs. Guys like Tony Brooks-James, Trey Edmunds stepped up big time for us last week. Jaylen Samuels being able to carry the load at the position, so we will see what happens.” 

With a ground game that has been struggling, having Conner back would be a big boost.

“It’s huge,” said David DeCastro. “He is an experienced guy. Any time you get a guy back that knows the offense, had those reps before, those experiences, it’s a key.”

Conner did practice leading into the Rams game for a day, but was held out the rest of the week. He said it wasn’t because of a setback, but more because he was testing his shoulder to see how he was progressing.

“I didn’t take a step back. It was just a trial to see how I felt,” said Conner. “No steps back. I just wanted to be out there with the guys again, catch some passes. I kind of knew where I was. Just wanted to get back out there for a trial.

“Early on in the week it was hard for me to move my arm above my head. That is why you have to be smart and communicate. All of those are essentials to be out there and contributing to the team as far as blitz pick up and receiving and holding on to the ball. 

“I just want to contribute to the run game when I get back. We are winning games without the run game. That doesn’t mean we don’t need it. We definitely do. Hopefully I can contribute to it.”

For the second straight day guard Ramon Foster was a full participant and is expected to play tomorrow night after being cleared from the NFL concussion protocol. 

Ola Adeniyi (hip) was a full participant on Wednesday and isn’t on the status report. Anthony Chickillo (ribs) was limited on Wednesday and is questionable for Thursday night.
