The Pittsburgh Steelers have released their Friday and final injury report of the week ahead of Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints. Four players have been given game statuses for the contest, including two players being ruled out:
OG Kevin Dotson – Questionable (abdomen)
EDGE Malik Reed – Questionable (personal)
