The Steelers listed LB Lawrence Timmons and DE Travis Kirschke as doubtful on the team’s final injury report Saturday, but it’s not looking like either starter will play in Monday night’s game in Denver. The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported Saturday that both Kirschke (calf) and Timmons (ankle) will sit out against the Broncos.
Both players sat out their third consecutive day of practice Saturday.
Kirschke, who started the last two games in place of Aaron Smith, has been dealing with a torn left calf muscle. Timmons suffered an ankle injury against the Vikings before the Steelers’ bye week.
The Steelers also are expected to be without starting safety Ryan Clark, who’s listed as questionable but likely won’t play because of a rare blood disorder that is aggravated by physical activity in high altitude. The Steelers won’t make an announcement on Clark’s status until Monday.
