As the Pittsburgh Steelers prepare to face the Dallas Cowboys in what amounts to a must-win game, they will be going at it without several regulars, as has been the case all season.
As expected, cornerback Ike Taylor (ankle) and offensive lineman Willie Colon (knee) and Mike Adams (ankle) have already been ruled out for the Dallas game.
In addition, wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (shoulder) and cornerbacks Keenan Lewis (hip) and Cortez Allen (groin) did not practice on Wednesday and are listed as questionable for Sunday.
The Steelers did receive a bit of good news in the fact that linebacker LaMarr Woodley went through practice and looks all set to go vs. Dallas. Woodley missed the past two games with an ankle sprain.
Other than the injured players, safety Troy Polamalu, linebacker James Harrison and running back Rashard Mendenhall also didn’t practice on Wednesday, but neither situation is injury related. Polamalu was just given a day off, Harrison was battling an illness and Mendenhall has been suspended a week.
