This injury tracker report will bridge the gap between our early week in-depth injury report and our Friday practice & status report. We'll track all key fantasy player injuries and provide information from the teams and practice reports. Be sure you check out our Priority News often during the week as all breaking player news will be posted there. Please note that teams playing on Monday night don't release injury reports until after Thursday practice and teams in the west often report their injuries late.

THURSDAY NIGHT INACTIVES
Pittsburgh: CB Keenan Lewis, FB Carey Davis, S Troy Polamalu, OG Kraig Urbik, OT Tony Hills, DE Sunny Harris, and DE Nick Eason.
Cleveland: TE Greg Estandia, 3rd QB Brett Ratliff, DB Gerard Lawson, DB Coye Francies, LB David Veikune, OG Rex Hadnot, WR Jake Allen, and DE Kenyon Coleman
