    Looks Like Claypool and Turner are trending in the right direction. As long as Ben can test negative as anticipated he should be good.

    Watt Fitz Haden and Dotson will all be out.

    We are for the lack of a better word…… Fed

    Has Ben or MinKah recorded their 1st negative test yet? And, is a negative test allowed to be reported?

    Not sure Watt is officially out. MTs press conference he said the “ things he does routinely are things not done routinely by others”.

    Watt hasn't been ruled out. I thought Haden was day-to-day. The only guy I've seen as out is Dotson.

    No I know they haven’t been ruled out officially but reading between the lines all 4 will be out at least this week. Ben who knows all depends on a negative test.

    I’d say Minkah looks like he is out and the other ones at this point are still up in the air. I’m guessing we will find out about Ben’s first Covid test today at practice and we will see how Watt progresses during the week. Good news is it looks like Claypool should be back which will be a big boost to the offense especially if Rudolph plays. Joey Bosa tested positive last night for the Chargers which is a big deal especially for a team like the Chargers who already struggle a great deal to stop the run.

    Watt will play you watch...When they said hip, then knee, then hip/ knee....I watched the replay over...

    I'm not a Doctor , but I think he got wrenched/ twisted... That's why he had that look on his face...Like us old F**** that twist wrong.He has world class trainers ( other than groin trainers, need new groin trainers )

    Going out on a limb but I'm betting he gets treatment and manipulated, and will be good to go

    if dotson does have a high ankle sprain, he needs to sit. rushing these back rarely has a good outcome. it may be a few weeks as well depending on how severe it is. :cool:

    Sounding as though Mason will start again as well. Surprised Ben won’t be cleared by then.

    Sounds like Tre Norwood is going to play a good bit in place of Fitzpatrick's spot

    Positive Covid seems like a 10-day process. Being that it came to light on a Saturday, Saturday to following Sunday is only 8 days.

    But if he's passes 2 negative test within 24 hours and is not symptomatic and gets cleared from the medical staff.

    But he's going to have to be good to go and cleared by this Friday. With the travel day Saturday to California.

    What is happening is Tomlin said they will get ready as if Rudolph will start again and people are speculating based upon that. There is no actual new information either way regarding Roethlisberger's status for Sunday.

    Seems like A Rodg came back after missing a week but I’m not sure when he was first diagnosed or whatever. Whole situation is whacked

    May be a good thing. Our coaches would be forced to coach rather than simply rely on the talent of the players

    Yes, this will be interesting to see how he plays. His glaring weakness coming out of college was tackling, but he’s been one of our better DBs at tackling this year. Better than we’ve seen from Minkah in recent weeks.

    Given my stat line for him in Fantasy football last week I'm not sure he came back last week. I think a good portion of him was still talking his beliefs up on Pat McAfee podcast.

    I was out 3 weeks pre vaccine and still months later get winded easy. I missed 3 days after the 1st shot and threw up 12 hrs after 2nd shot and missed Friday work and I'm 47 and not a finely tuned Athletic machine. Hopefully his vaccine status lessens his symptoms.

    Yeah he makes these injury update threads, but they're really just his opinion on what's going to happen. Very misleading.

    Watt Dotson Haden and Turner all did not practice today. Hoping at least Turner can return tomorrow the other 3 are most likely out.

    Claypool was limited and we will hope to see him trending to full tomorrow otherwise he may not be out of the woods.

    Ben and Minkah are both still in Covid protocol. Minkah will be out Sunday and we will see by Friday if Ben is removed otherwise he will also miss the Chargers game.

    Rough shape for sure.
