Mike Hilton, Chris Wormley Set to Return for Steelers; Trey Edmunds, Jaylen Samuels Out
Steelers running backs Jaylen Samuels and Trey Edmunds will miss the team’s game with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday due to injury, but cornerback Mike Hilton and defensive lineman Chris Wormley are set to make his return after missing more than a month.
Samuels suffered a quadriceps injury and Edmunds a hamstring injury in the Steelers’ Week 10 win over the Cincinnati Bengals last week and did not practice all this week.
They’ll be replaced in the Steelers’ back rotation by rookie Anthony McFarland, Jr., who is dressed after missing the Bengals game with an illness.
Outside linebacker Jayrone Elliott did not practice all this week with an illness and will also miss Sunday’s game with the Jaguars. Edmunds, Elliott and Samuels were the only Steelers to miss either Thursday or Friday’s practice sessions and had already been ruled out by the team on Friday.
Hilton had practiced in full all week and was not given an injury designation for the game. He has not been active since injuring his shoulder against the Cleveland Browns in Week 6.
Defensive lineman Chris Wormley, who was promoted from the injured reserve on Saturday, will be active for the first time since suffering a knee injury against the Tennessee Titans in Week 7.
With Wormley returning, Henry Mondeaux will retain his helmet over Isaiah Buggs, who is a healthy scratch.
Third quarterback Josh Dobbs is the other healthy inactive Steelers player.
