Steelers vs. Bills injury report: 3 starters land on injured list

By Allison Koehler

The first injury report of the Pittsburgh Steelers Week 1 brawl with the Bills was released and… let’s just hope that things look worse than they are.

Starters Alex Highsmith (thumb), Kendrick Green (groin) and Tyson Alualu (elbow) are all included on the injury report. All three starters participated fully in Tuesday’s practice, but that changed in the blink of an eye.

Highsmith and Green both were limited in Wednesday’s practice, but Alualu’s elbow injury kept him out. Green spoke with the media following practice Wednesday, so the rookie center should be a go for Sunday.

The Steelers practice again tomorrow and Friday before shuffling off to Buffalo on Saturday. Check back with Steelers Wire tomorrow for an updated injury report.
