Week 14 Injury Report (Raiders)

The Steelers will go into Sunday’s game against the Raiders at Oakland Coliseum without a few players, but the next man up mentality will definitely be in full effect.

James Conner, who has 201 carries for 909 yards and 12 touchdowns on the season, will be sidelined with an ankle sprain suffered last week against the Chargers. Rookie Jaylen Samuels and veteran Stevan Ridley will carry the load, and both will be ready when called upon.

“It doesn’t really matter when it is I go in,” said Ridley. “I’m just trying to be stretched, loose and ready to go out there and produce.”

Also out this week is tackle Marcus Gilbert, set to miss his seventh game with a knee injury. With Gilbert out Matt Feiler has shown what he can do, and he once again is ready to step in.

“I am just always prepared for whatever is asked of me,” said Feiler.

The team isn’t sure if safety Morgan Burnett will be back this week. Burnett missed the Chargers game with a back injury, was a full participant in practice all week, and is listed as questionable for Sunday.

“It feels good,” said Burnett. “Any time you have an opportunity to get reps and work on your craft, it’s a good thing.

“Missing time is tough. It’s part of the territory. The only thing I can keep doing is keep working, keep grinding, and don’t let that get to me mentally. Keep my head down and keep focusing on trying to get better. I just take it one day at a time.”

Anthony Chickillo, who injured his ankle against the Chargers, did not practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but was back on the field on Friday as a full participant. He is also listed as questionable.

Ryan Switzer, who suffered a concussion against the Chargers, was a full participant in practice all week and ready to go. Switzer has become more involved in the offense as the season has progressed, something that he welcomes.

“It’s leaps and bounds since the first day,” said Switzer. “I feel like I am part of this team now. I feel like I have a grasp on what they are asking me to do. My role has increased week by week. I enjoy that, I embrace that.”

Kameron Canaday, who got a scare when he suffered a knee injury against the Chargers that he initially feared was more serious than it was, practiced all week and will be handling the long snapping duties on Sunday. Roosevelt Nix, who injured his shoulder last week, also was a full participant and will be ready to go.

The full practice report is below.
