The Steelers will be thin on the interior of the offensive line against the Bengals.
The Steelers have finished up on their preparation for Week 15 as they had a bonus day due to playing on Monday night. In the final injury report for the Steelers for Week 15 courtesy of the Steelers PR Department, the Steelers have ruled out Kevin Dotson while James Conner is listed as questionable.
Rookie guard Kevin Dotson was unable to practice all week with a shoulder injury which caused him to miss most of the second half of Sunday night’s game against the Bills. With Matt Feiler going on the Reserve/Injured List due to a pectoral injury, exactly who will start at left guard has not been announced. Unfortunately, Dotson will not be available for Monday which would have been his third start of the season.
Running back James Conner missed Thursday’s practice with a quadricep injury but returned to practice in a limited fashion on Friday and Saturday. Conner is officially listed as questionable for Monday as the progress with his injury over the next 48 hours will likely be the determining factor of his status on Monday night.
Joe Haden participated in his fourth practice on Saturday as he is working his way out of the NFL’s concussion protocol. The good news for both Haden and the Steelers is he does not carry an injury designation for Monday night.
