The Pittsburgh Steelers released their official injury report for this week’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Fortunately, it seems Pittsburgh is going to go into the game pretty healthy, all things considered.
I’d love to make a big deal about the absence of safety Morgan Burnett but he’s been out for so long the defense has definitely moved on from him. There’s no way to account for injuries but in hindsight but the signing many thought would have the biggest impact on the team has been a complete non-factor.
In addition, wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey will miss his second straight game. His impact on offense is marginal but he is a star on special teams. Last week’s surprise star, linebacker L.J. Fort is doubtful with an ankle injury. He played much of last week’s game with the injury and was tremendous filling in for Vince Williams.
