Pittsburgh Steelers inside linebacker Mark Barron will not play in Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Barron did not practice all week after suffering a hamstring injury during last week’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

The Steelers have three players they consider starters for two positions at inside linebacker in Barron, Vince Williams and rookie Devin Bush. They have had all three available for only one full game so far this season – Williams left a Week 2 loss to Seattle because of a hamstring injury and missed the subsequent two games.

Cornerback Mike Hilton returned to practice Friday and endured a full workout a day after he left a session because of a foot injury. He will play Sunday, as will tight end Vance McDonald (shoulder) and linebacker Anthony Chickillo (foot).

As had been reported earlier in the week, receiver James Washington (shoulder) and running back Jaylen Samuels (knee) are out for multiple games after suffering injuries in the game against the Ravens.

Fullback Roosevelt Nix did not practice all week and will miss his fifth consecutive game because of a knee injury.

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.
