Wide Receiver Juju Smith-Schuster and center Maurkice Pouncey sustained ankle injuries. Linebacker T.J. Watt suffered a hip injury, and cornerback Joe Haden a shoulder injury. Head coach Mike Tomlin is optimistic they will all play Sunday against Seattle.
The Steelers have signed quarterback Devlin Hodges to their practice squad. They have also signed outside linebacker Jayrone Elliott to their 53-man squad. The Steelers lost linebacker Tuzar Skipper, who was claimed off waivers by the New York Giants.
Former Steelers offensive lineman Marcus Gilbert was placed on injured reserve Tuesday by the Arizona Cardinals. Gilbert, who had a history of injuries while with the Steelers, injured his right knee.
