PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) – Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin warned on Tuesday that there would be a number of players not practicing today and he was correct. Eleven missed workouts with injuries to Mike Hilton, Jordan Dangerfield and Chris Wormley as the ones that could most impact the game at Baltimore on Sunday.

Diontae Johnson, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Maurkice Pouncey and Eric Ebron had injuries listed but were likely more of a veterans rest day.  Alejandro Villanueva with a new elbow injury.

Ben Roethlisberger got his typical off-day on Wednesday with David DeCastro and Stephon Tuitt getting the day off as well.

Fullback Derek Watt is attempting to come back from a hamstring injury and was able to go full for the first time in a couple of weeks.  Watt’s participation would be key on special teams especially if Dangerfield can’t play against the Ravens.
