The Steelers resumed practice activities today as they prepare to host the Indianapolis Colts on a short week. Here’s a look at the injury/participation report:
Did Not Practice:
NT Steve McLendon (shoulder), OT Marcus Gilbert (concussion), DE Brett Keisel (not injury related), S Michael Mitchell (not injury related), S Troy Polamalu (not injury related).
LB Ryan Shazier (knee), CB Ivan Taylor (forearm), S Shamarko Thomas (hamstring)
Earlier in the day, media members and Steelers staffers were erroneously reporting that Shazier had missed practice, but he was actually limited according to the official NFL injury report.
Another noteworthy item on the injury report is Ike Taylor’s return to practice. This is his first time back to practice (albeit in a limited capacity) since suffering that grotesque forearm break a month ago.
Taylor said he did individual drills and cardio today, and that he doesn’t have a timetable for his return. He went on to say, “I feel like I’m a mutant. I got two Wolverine plates in my arm. Just need a little Wolverine blood, I’ll be straight”
