Steelers Thursday Injury Report Week 6: Heyward-Bey, Burnett, Fort Remain Sidelined

The Pittsburgh Steelers second in jury report of Week 6 has now been released ahead of the team’s Sunday road game against the Cincinnati Bengals and the Thursday offering shows that three players failed to practice a second consecutive day due to ailments.

Not practicing on Thursday for the Steelers were linebacker L.J. Fort (ankle), wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey (ankle) and safety Morgan Burnett (groin). As things stand right now, it’s a good bet that Heyward-Bey and Burnett will both miss another game on Sunday. As for Fort, who suffered his ankle injury this past Sunday, his prospects of playing against the Bengals aren’t looking too good right now, either.
