The Steelers released their injury report for Sunday’s game in Tennessee, and as expected, left tackle Max Starks and nose tackle Casey Hampton are out. That, of course, means Jonathan Scott and Chris Hoke are going to have to step it up.
In other injury news…
– Outsider linebacker Jason Worilds (shoulder) and wide receiver Emanuel Sanders (quad) are listed as doubtful. This could be an issue on special teams as these two guys combined for five tackles (out of 10) in kick coverage against the Falcons in Week 1. If Sanders can’t go, I’d imagine fellow rookie Antonio Brown gets the call (hopefully in the return game, too).
– Conerback Bryant McFadden, wide receiver Arnaz Battle and quarterback Byron Leftwich are all listed as probable. Leftwich reportedly was a full participant in practice on Friday, though, Dennis Dixon is still going to get the start. Sounds like Leftwich could be an option for the Tampa Bay game next Sunday.
