Steelers injury roundup: DB Hilton, FB Watt out


PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) — The Steelers are getting ready to take on the also unbeaten Tennessee Titans at Nissan Stadium for a Week 7 heavyweight bout.

And with the matchup just around the corner, the Pittsburgh Steelers have submitted their official injury report for the week.

The most notable players to be on the injury report include defensive back Mike Hilton and fullback Derek Watt.

Hilton missed practices earlier in the week with a shoulder injury from the Cleveland Browns game in Week 6 and will be sidelined against the Titans.

Watt, on the other hand, is fighting a nagging hamstring injury.

Watt played against the Browns last week after sustaining the injury originally in the Week 5 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

But Watt irritated the hamstring again.

Along with Hilton and Watt, tight end Zach Gentry, offensive tackle Derwin Gray, quarterback Josh Dobbs, interior defensive lineman Carlos Davis, and edge rusher Isaiah Buggs will all be inactive.

But there are some silver linings: David DeCastro and Diontae Johnson are both returning to action after missing the game against the Browns.
