Diontae Johnson, Myles Jack, and Terrell Edmunds are all questionable for the Steelers’ matchup against the Raiders on Saturday.

Johnson, who is dealing with a case of turf toe, did not practice the last two days. He was seen throwing the ball to his teammates but did not practice at all. In their simulated practice on Tuesday, he was limited. Johnson did say that he expected to play, however. If he can not go, the Steelers would be looking to Miles Boykin, Steven Sims, and Gunner Olszewski to step up.

Jack is still dealing with the effects of a groin injury. He missed most of last week’s practices but logged a full practice on Thursday. That likely is a good sign for his availability on Saturday, but if he can not go, Mark Robinson should see more action once again.

Edmunds is dealing with a hamstring injury. He did not practice on either of the first two days and in their simulated practice on Tuesday, did not practice. It seems likely that he will have to practice in some capacity on Friday in order to play against the Raiders.

Larry Ogunjobi (toe), Kenny Pickett (concussion), George Pickens (illness), Josh Jackson (ankle), Pat Freiermuth (foot), J.C. Hassenauer (personal), Najee Harris (hip), and Derek Watt (ankle) all were limited at some point in the week but will play with no injury designations.
