Steelers injury report: Lots of veterans getting rest

The Pittsburgh Steelers are the Arizona Cardinals’ next opponent and released their first injury report of the week, as they kicked off their week of practice on Wednesday.

They start the week pretty healthy. They had five players sit out on Wednesday but all but one had rest listed as a reason.

No one was limited but three have injuries and were able to get all their normal reps.

The details are below.

Did not participate

WR Calvin Austin III (ankle), DT Cam Heyward (rest, groin), CB Patrick Peterson (rest), WR Allen Robinson (rest, foot), G Isaac Seumalo (rest)

It must be nice. Austin is a backup receiver. Heyward and Robinson do have injuries but with the rest designation, they would have gotten at least some work normally.

Full participation

DT Montavius Adams (ankle), S Minkah Fitzpatrick (hamstring), QB Kenny Pickett (ankle)

Adams is their starting nose tackle. All are starters but should be fine unless they have an unexpected setback later in the week.
