    Worilds, Pouncey, and Mendenhall injured in practice

    Practice cost the Steelers more injuries Thursday than some games. They lost three players over the course of a two-hour afternoon session.

    Center Maurkice Pouncey (left elbow) and halfback Rashard Mendenhall (knee) came down with new injuries, and linebacker Jason Worilds (quad) aggravated an old one.
    The Steelers listed their participation as "limited" in practice. Today, coach Mike Tomlin must determine his injured players' status for the game, ranging from "out" to "probable."

    Pouncey said he was "fine" but added he did not want to talk about the injury. He has played through two other injuries this season, to his ankle and knee, not missing a start but leaving two games for short periods, both at home, against Seattle and Tennessee.

    Trai Essex is the backup center because Doug Legursky is out with a toe injury. Essex said it was the most extensive practice time he has had at the position, and coordinator Bruce Arians said he will be comfortable if Essex has to play center.
    Worild's injury assures that Lawrence Timmons will make his third consecutive start at outside linebacker for Harrison, who has been in the locker room this week without the eye patch he wore after surgery to repair his broken orbital bone.

    And the tragedy that is the Steelers health continues...
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    Must be something in the water in Pittsburgh. The Penguins, the Steelers. Always injury problems.

    Honestly, the only one that makes me worry is Pouncey. The line needs some freakin consistancy. Mendy and the LB's have good back ups.

    There hasn't been much more news at this point so hopefully they aren't serious injuries. Pouncey said he'll play through his. The Trib though mentioned this morning that Worilds could be a scratch, which means Timmons will continue on the outside.

    What's ironic here is the players lobbied for less practices in pads, etc. and now injuries are up all over the league.
