The Steelers are dealing with three new injuries to start Week 4 and the process to prepare for the game against the Houston Texans. Starting right guard James Daniels is dealing with a groin injury, Allen Robinson suffered an ankle injury, and punter Pressley Harvin III has a hamstring injury.
However, the Steelers expect all of those injuries to be minor. While those three players may be limited early in the week, he expects those injuries to get better as the week goes along, with those three in particular playing on Sunday against the Texans.
That is in addition to the bumps and bruises that were suffered by Najee Harris and Levi Wallace during the team’s win and mentioned those injuries following the team’s win on Sunday.
Cam Heyward, Diontae Johnson, and Anthony McFarland remain on injured reserve. Harvin’s hamstring injury is particularly interesting, as the team does not have another punter on the roster or the practice squad. Should the injury become more serious than they believe, they will need to go the outside to add a punter.
If Robinson can not play, Calvin Austin, Miles Boykin, and Dez Fitzpatrick will be guys to step up with Gunner Olszewski still in the concussion protocol. Daniels’ backup is Nate Herbig if he could not go. However, it seems that the group will largely be healthy for this week.
