NFL News: Player News and Updates for 1/3/14


The Steelers’ injury report yesterday included some encouraging news. Ike Davis and Troy Polamalu, most notably, were named probable for today’s game against the Ravens. Polamalu has been out for four of the team’s last seven games due to injury issues.

Let’s check out a few injury issues from the Steelers’ division rival Bengals. WR A.J. Green was officially ruled as doubtful for the Sunday game against Indianapolis, thanks to a concussion.
Also of note, TE Jermaine Gresham, who is battling a back injury, has been named questionable for the matchup.

The Panthers have a few notable probable designations for their game against Arizona. Most notably, RB DeAngelo Williams gets that nod, as he’s bouncing back well after a hand injury. He’s missed four straight games due to that ailment but was able to participate fully in practice this week.
Williams and Jonathan Stewart will likely split time in the Carolina backfield.
