All Steelers starters practice fully, but JuJu Smith-Schuster and others ‘questionable’ vs. Ravens

Steelers running back James Conner runs through the Bengals’ Dre Kirkpatrick for a second-quarter touchdown Monday, Sept. 30, 2019 at Heinz Field.

James Conner, JuJu Smith-Schuster and Vance McDonald practiced for the first time this week Friday, and each of the Pittsburgh Steelers starting skill-position players was a full participant.

Only Conner, though, was cleared to play Sunday.

On the Steelers’ final injury report of the week, receiver Smith-Schuster and tight end McDonald were termed questionable to play in Sunday’s AFC North showdown with the Baltimore Ravens.

Smith-Schuster has a toe injury he’s played through since Week 1, and McDonald has a shoulder injury suffered two weeks ago that prevented him from playing in Monday’s win against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Conner will play against the Ravens six days after an ankle injury hindered him late in the game against the Bengals.

Inside linebacker Vince Williams, somewhat curiously, was listed as questionable to play despite wrapping up a full practice week Friday. Williams missed the past two games because of a hamstring injury.

Ruled out were special-teamers Roosevelt Nix and Anthony Chickillo. Nix hasn’t played since the regular-season opener because of a knee injury, and Chickillo has missed the past two games because of plantar fasciitis.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
