Coach Tomlin gave his weekly injury updates today, and the outlook was good. He listed Stevenson Sylvester (hamstring) and Shamarko Thomas (ankle) as being further away than anyone else. “Those guys could be characterized at this point as doubtful”, said Tomlin.
Brett Keisel, Ramon Foster, and LaMarr Woodley are all considered to have a legitimate opportunity to participate in this week’s game, but their prepartion may be limited earlier in the week. Fernando Velasco and Kelvin Beachum, who both played in Sunday’s game, will also be monitored Matt Spaeth will also be evaluated to determine if he can return to practice.
Tomlin said Emmanuel Sanders is feeling a lot better than he did on Sunday, and he will be suited up for practice tomorrow. His participation will be their guide determining how he proceeds throughout the week.
