Steelers banged up to start the week but some players return

WR Dionate Johnson practiced in full and G David DeCastro was limited

While linebacker Devin Bush is out for the year with a torn ACL, he isn’t the only player on the Steelers injured list.

Cornerback Mike Hilton missed with a shoulder injury and Derek Watt was out with a hamstring.

Center Maurkice Pouncey also missed practice with a knee but played on Sunday and is usually out on Wednesday. Wide Receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster did not practice as well with a knee, hasn’t practiced much, if at all this season on Wednesday.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and defensive end Stephon Tuitt both got veteran days off.

There was some good news, receiver Diontae Johnson practiced in full and guard David DeCastro also returned but was limited.

On Tuesday, Coach Mike Tomlin said that some players like Hilton would be limited at the beginning of the week.

The Steelers will need as many healthy bodies as possible when they head to Tennessee to play the also unbeaten Titans.
