The Steelers had their first practice of the week today at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex on the South Side in preparation for Thursday night's game against the Baltimore Ravens.
Joe Haden (knee), Jaylen Samuels (quad) and Trey Edmunds (hamstring) did not practice. Samuels and Edmunds were out against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday and Haden suffered his knee injury in the third quarter of Sunday's game. Maurkice Pouncey and David DeCastro also did not practice, but both received a veterans day off.
JuJu Smith-Schuster (foot), Ben Roethlisberger (quad) and Cameron Heyward (ankle) were all limited. Jayrone Elliott, who missed the Jaguars game with an illness, returned to practice on Tuesday.
Earlier in the day, the Steelers made multiple roster moves, including signing tight end Kevin Rader to the active roster from the practice squad and activating tight end Vance McDonald from the reserve/COVID-19 list. The team also placed tight end Zach Gentry on the reserve/Injured list and signed linebacker/long snapper Christian Kuntz to the practice squad. Gentry suffered a knee injury in the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Jaguars.
The Ravens didn't practice on Tuesday and all football activities were done remotely due to a COVID-19 outbreak in the organization. They placed running backs J.K. Dobbins and Mark Ingram, along with nose tackle Brandon Williams on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Monday. On Tuesday, the Ravens placed outside linebacker Pernell McPhee on the reserved/COVID-19 list.
