The Pittsburgh workweek began Wednesday without a couple of key Steelers.Running back James Conner didn’t practice four days before a showdown with the Patriots. Conner has an ankle injury that kept him from playing this past Sunday Dwayne Allen Color Rush Jersey , against the Raiders.Coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that it’s “possible” Conner will play on Sunday.Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger also didn’t practice on Wednesday, due to the rib injury he suffered against the Raiders. But Roethlisberger routinely gets Wednesday off Adam Butler Jersey , so it’s hard to tell whether the injury would have kept him from practicing, if he otherwise would have been inclined to practice.Also not practicing were safetyč½Sean Davis (knee) Elandon Roberts Color Rush Jersey , tackle Marcus Gilbert (knee), and center Maurkice Pouncey (not injury related). Linebacker Anthony Chickillo was limited in practice with an ankle injury. Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore wasn’t on the team’s injury report on Wednesday or Thursday , but he wound up listed as questionable due to an ankle injury on Friday’s injury report.Gilmore was a limited participant in the team’s final practice before going to Miami to face the Dolphins on Sunday. It’s unclear whether he was injured in practice or if the issue got worse at some point earlier in the week.The Patriots often leave players at home if they aren’t going to play on Sunday, so we’ll see if Gilmore makes the trip to Miami with the rest of the team.Tight end Dwayne Allen was the only other player given an injury designation on Friday. Allen has missed the last two games with a knee injury Phillip Dorsett Color Rush Jersey , but was a full participant in Friday’s practice.
