Running back James Conner, cornerback Joe Haden and linebacker Vince Williams were starters who sat out Pittsburgh Steelers practice Wednesday because of injury.

Backups/special teamers Roosevelt Nix and Antony Chickillo also sat out of the first session of the week in preparation for Sunday’s game at the San Francisco 49ers. Nix is in crutches because of a knee injury, and Chickillo has plantar fasciitis in his right foot.

Haden practiced only once last week after suffering a sprained AC joint during Week 1’s game, but he played during the loss against Seattle in Week 2. Conner (knee) and Williams (hamstring) were injured during that game. Conner said he expects to play this coming Sunday.

Tight end Vance McDonald (back) was listed as a limited practice participant on the league-mandated injury report.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

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.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
