PITTSBURGH, PA — The Pittsburgh Steelers will be without four starters when they take on the Baltimore Ravens in Week 5.
The team announced offensive linemen James Daniels and Dan Moore Jr., tight end Pat Freiermuth, defensive end DeMarvin Leal, and punter Pressley Harvin III have all been ruled out for their Week 5 game.
Daniels continues to nurse a groin injury that will keep him sidelined for a second week. Moore will miss his first game since suffering the knee injury last week against the Houston Texans. Neither were able to practice this week.
Without Daniels and Moore, the Steelers will start Nate Herbig at guard for a second game and first-round rookie Broderick Jones at left tackle. This will mark Jones’s first start in the NFL.
Freiermuth will miss Week 5 due to a hamstring injury that is expected to keep him off the field for 2-3 weeks. Without him, Darnell Washington, Connor Heyward and Rodney Williams will split the workload. Williams was signed off the practice squad this week.
Harvin will miss his second game because of a hamstring injury, meaning Brad Wing will get the call-up again this weekend.
Leal is currently in concussion protocol, which he’ll need to clear before he returns. Rookie Keeanu Benton will start in his place.
The Steelers will have quarterback Kenny Pickett as he returns from a bone bruise in his knee. Outside linebacker Alex Highsmith is listed as questionable, but told reporters after practice he plans to play.
