Week 11 Injury Report (Chargers)

The Steelers wrapped up their preparation for Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Chargers and the news isn't great from an injury standpoint.

The team will be without three starters, linebacker T.J. Watt (hip/knee), cornerback Joe Haden (foot) and guard Kevin Dotson (ankle). All three missed practice all week and have been ruled out.

In addition, defensive lineman Isaiahh Loudermilk will not play after missing practice on Friday. Loudermilk landed on the injury report on Thursday with a groin injury, leaving an already thin defensive line even thinner.

On top of missing Watt, Haden and Loudermilk on defense, the team will also be without safety Minkah Fitzpatrick, who is on the Reserve/COVID-19 List.

"What we'll do, I'm not going to say," said defensive coordinator Keith Butler. "They'll have to figure that out when we get in the game. Hopefully, the guys will step up. They understand how good of players those guys are. We're just going to have to give it our best shot and see what happens.

"You want to do what's best for everybody and try to put your best players on the field as much as you can. That's what we're gonna do. We're gonna put who we feel like are our best players on the field and make them comfortable in terms of what we're doing so they can put their best game out there. That's what it's gonna take from us.

"The people we play, it's a good offensive team. Quarterback who's a very good, young quarterback. They can run the football too. They do both. Our group's gonna have to step up and the guys who are gonna be in there for the guys that we have missing are gonna have to step up also. If they do that, then we'll see what happens."

There was some good news on the injury front, however. Receiver Chase Claypool (toe) was a full participant on Friday, as was guard Trai Turner (ankle).

Related news: Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and safety Minkah Fitzpatrick remain on the Reserve/COVID-19 List.
