Week 9 Injury Report (Cowboys)

The Steelers wrapped up preparation for the Dallas Cowboys on Friday on a perfect fall day in Pittsburgh.    

Defensive lineman Tyson Alualu didn't practice for the third straight day after suffering a knee injury against the Ravens last week and has been ruled out for Sunday's game.

With Alualu out, Isaiah Buggs could be a key factor, but he too is battling an injury. Buggs was added to the injury report on Wednesday with a knee and was limited that day. He didn't practice on Thursday but was a full participant on Friday and isn't on the status report.

"I am ready, and I am prepared," said Buggs. "Learning from Tyson, (Stephon) Tuitt and Cam (Heyward), those guys I have been around for two years. Just watching those guys, learning how they play and do things around here, I am sure I am ready for the opportunity."

The other depth the Steelers have on the defensive line if needed includes Henry Mondeaux, who was added to the 53-man roster on Oct. 23, as well as rookie Carlos Davis.

Cornerback Mike Hilton (shoulder) and guard Stefan Wisniewski (pectoral) are both doubtful for the game and were limited in practice on Friday. Tight end Vance McDonald (illness) did not practice on Friday and he is questionable for Sunday.

The full injury/status report is below.
