Steelers Injury Updates: Najee Harris, 3 Others Sit Out Wednesday



NFL Steelers Running Back Najee Harris

Najee Harris leads the way for the four players who were out for the Steelers on Wednesday as they dealt with injuries ahead of Pittsburgh’s matchup against the Carolina Panthers.

Najee Harris (Hip) was a surprise addition as he was not mentioned by Mike Tomlin in Tuesday’s rundown. The hip designation replaces the oblique designation that had been on Harris’ injury report for the last two weeks. Jaylen Warren and Benny Snell would see more work with Harris down.

Larry Ogunjobi (Toe) continues to deal with the injury. He has yet to be fully healthy this season after suffering a knee injury early in the year. Now, it is a toe injury that is nagging the veteran defensive tackle. However, it is likely that Ogunjobi will play given his ability to do so over the past few weeks.

Myles Jack (Groin) popped up as a surprise injury. He did not practice on Wednesday. Pat Freiermuth (Foot) also did practice on Wednesday. For Jack, Robert Spillane would see more time while for Freiermuth, Connor Heyward and Zach Gentry would play more.

Kenny Pickett (Concussion) is still in the protocol. He did log a limited practice, however, and threw on Wednesday. That is the first step in getting Pickett back onto the field. Cam Sutton (Stinger) was limited as well.
