The Steelers are relatively healthy going into Sunday's game against the Raiders, however, three players were named to the injury report today, two of which are starters -- cornerback Joe Haden (groin), inside linebacker Devin Bush (groin) and backup tight end Zach Gentry (ankle).


Haden, Bush and Gentry were limited at Friday's practice and are all listed as questionable for Sunday's game.


Tight end Eric Ebron (hamstring) was a full participant on Friday after missing yesterday's practice. In addition, inside linebacker Robert Spillane (shin) was a full participant for the second straight day.


Defensive tackle Carlos Davis (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Las Vegas.


The Raiders are dealing with a plethora of injuries after their thrilling overtime win over the Ravens on Monday night. They'll be without starting running back Josh Jacobs, who's dealing with a toe/ankle injury. Guard Richie Incognito (calf), linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski (concussion), quarterback Marcus Mariota (quad) and safety Roderic Teamer (ankle) have also been ruled out for Sunday's game. Defensive end Carl Nassib (pectoral/toe), defensive end Yannick Ngakoue (hamstring) and defensive tackle Darius Philon (knee) are questionable to play. It's believed that Ngakoue will active against the Steelers, however, as Jon Gruden expects him to be good to go.


According to Vic Tafur of The Athletic, Gruden had this to say about Ngakoue's hamstring injury and whether he would play on Sunday: "He wants to win and he knows we have to have him to win."
