Week 7 Injury Report (Titans)

The Steelers wrapped up preparation for Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans at Nissan Stadium, a game that will have two 5-0 teams facing each other in a key AFC matchup. They will go into the game without two key players, fullback Derek Watt and cornerback Mike Hilton, who were both ruled out.

Watt didn't practice for the third straight day, still bothered by the hamstring injury he suffered against the Houston Texans. Watt, who coming into the 2020 season had never missed a game in his career because of an injury, didn't play against the Philadelphia Eagles. He returned to the field against the Browns, but the hamstring continued to be an issue.

Hilton was held out of practice for a third straight day dealing with a shoulder injury he suffered against the Browns.

Guard David DeCastro (abdominal injury), who returned to practice Wednesday on a limited basis after missing the Browns game, was a full participant on Thursday and Friday and isn't on the status report. Receiver Diontae Johnson, who missed the Browns game after taking a hit to the back against the Eagles, was also a full participant for the third day and will play on Sunday.

"It's always good to have a skill player back," said offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner of Johnson. "You feel kind of naked without him."

Ben Roethlisberger, who sat out his normal Wednesday practice, was limited on Thursday for personal reasons, but back as full on Friday. Maurkice Pouncey (foot) and JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) were both held out of practice on Wednesday but were full participants on Thursday and Friday.

The Steelers also placed linebacker Devin Bush on the reserve/injured list earlier in the day after he underwent surgery for a season ending knee injury against the Browns.

The full injury and status report is below.
