Steelers Injury Updates: Najee Harris, Witherspoon Sidelined




Najee Harris and Ahkello Witherspoon headlined the list of players who were limited or out of practice on Wednesday. In total, ten players found themselves on the injury report, though Harris and Witherspoon were the only two players who outright missed practice.

Najee Harris (Oblique) suffered the injury against the Colts on Monday. The injury is not considered serious by the organization, but his status for Sunday’s game is up in the air. Meanwhile, Jaylen Warren (Hamstring) returned to fully participate in the session. Warren missed Monday’s game, but said he was cleared and is ready to return.

Witherspoon (Hamstring) has only played in four games this season. He suffered a reaggravation of the injury against the Philadelphia Eagles and has yet to play after the bye week. It was an injury first suffered against the Cleveland Browns in Week 3 on Thursday Night Football.

Minkah Fitzpatrick (Ribs) and T.J. Watt (Ribs) were both limited participants. The star players of Pittsburgh’s defense were listed in the bumps and bruises that Mike Tomlin associated with play. Both will likely suit up for the game against the Falcons on Sunday.

Robert Spillane (Oblique) and Myles Jack (Knee) were limited participants in Pittsburgh’s linebacker room. Jack has been dealing with the nagging knee injury since the start of the bye week. Meanwhile, Spillane missed Monday’s game with the injury as he aims to return.

Larry Ogunjobi (Toe) and Mason Cole (Foot) were players that were banged up. Cole has dealt with the foot injury for the entirety of the season. Meanwhile, Ogunjobi’s toe injury is a new designation. Both players practiced on a limited basis Wednesday.

Miles Boykin (Oblique) logged a full practice. He told Steelers Now that he expects to suit up against the Falcons and return to action.
