PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Steelers can't seem to catch a break with injuries.
The latest victim is right guard Kendall Simmons, who told ESPN Radio 1250 on Friday that he won't play against Kansas City on Sunday. He has been bothered all week by a foot bruise.
Earlier this week, Simmons apparently left a cold compress on his foot too long, creating a freezer-burn type of effect.
Simmons said he could play if he absolutely had to, but he plans to sit out this week.
Chris Kemoeatu, a second-year player from Utah, will likely start in place of Simmons, according to Channel 4 Action Sports anchor Jon Burton.
Also out for Sunday's game is linebacker Joey Porter, with an injured hamstring.
Deshea Townsend is questionable for Sunday, also with a hamstring injury.
