Week 9 Injury Report (Colts)

The Steelers will go into Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts banged up at running back, with Benny Snell (knee) ruled out of the game, James Conner (shoulder) doubtful, and Roosevelt Nix new to the list with a knee injury and listed as questionable.

Conner and Snell were hurt in Monday night’s win over the Dolphins and neither of them practiced at all this week. Nix, who returned to the lineup against the Dolphins after being out since he was injured Week 1, was a full participant on Wednesday and Thursday, but was limited on Friday.

If Conner can’t go the starting running back duties would be taken over by Jaylen Samuels. Samuels is coming back after missing the last two games following a knee scope and said he is ready to go.

“I was taking first-team reps all week this week,” said Samuels. “Whatever happens Sunday, happens. I am preparing. I don’t know what James’ situation is. If he doesn’t go, I have to be the man.”

The Steelers also have Trey Edmunds at running back, who is ready to do what is asked of him as well.

“If called upon I am definitely comfortable,” said Edmunds. “We just put the finishing touches on the game plan. I got mental reps, physical reps, putting the extra time in the film room, getting my mind prepared to go out there.

“The reps helped. Being out there, being in the situations, getting looks like you might get in the game. It gives you a feel for how things could be.”

Guard Ramon Foster remains in the concussion protocol and has been ruled out for Sunday. With Foster out, B.J. Finney is expected to step into his starting spot.

Maurkice Pouncey (calf), Ulysees Gilbert (back) and Dan McCullers (ankle) were all full participants on Friday and are not on the status report.
