and along the offensive line on Sunday after Marcus Gilbert was designated as doubtful and both Artie Burns and Coty Sensabaugh were listed as questionable in the final injury report of the week. While the inclusion of Burns may come as something of a surprise Pittsburgh Steelers Hoodie , an ankle injury suffered in training on Friday has put his status in serious jeopardy for Week 9. Although the availability of Sensabaugh is equally in question, it was at least encouraging to note that he was a full participant in the team’s final practice having been limited the day before and held out altogether on Wednesday.Gilbert began the week as a full participant, but has been downgraded every day since then. From limited on Thursday to out on Friday, his doubtful designation for Sunday means that Matt Feiler will start in his place once again. No player listed as questionable this year on the final injury report has suited up on game day and it seems likely that Cam Sutton will be starting at cornerback against the Baltimore Ravens Customized Pittsburgh Steelers Jerseys , with Brian Allen acting as his backup. Mike Hilton may also see snaps on the outside as well.An illness that kept Cam Heyward out of team’s final practice session is not expected to prevent him from playing on Sunday. Given Bud Dupree was forced to miss a day of training with an illness earlier in the week, it seems safe to assume that Heyward is dealing with the same bug. If the Steelers are struggling with injuries at cornerback, the Ravens have some notable concerns along the offensive line. Both starting tackles have already been ruled out of the contest, while guards Bradley Bozeman and Alex Lewis are both questionable for the game. Newly acquired running back Ty Montgomery may get to play sooner than expect with Alex Collins also questionable. For Pittsburgh Steelers fans still undecided about the team they will follow in the new Alliance of American Football , the Birmingham Iron have been doing their best to state their case for your support over the past few weeks. If hailing from the city that was once known as the “Pittsburgh of the South” was not enough, the fact that the Steelers are one of four teams affiliated with the Iron in terms of player allocation is already likely to have swayed some fans.As we noted when we first took a look at the various rosters of each AAF teams before the season began, Birmingham opened the year with more former Pittsburgh players than any other team in the league and are also led by former Steelers defensive coordinator Tim Lewis as head coach. Those still needing to be convinced might be encouraged by the news of the signing of another familiar face on Wednesday, with tight end Weslye Saunders becoming the latest addition to the Iron.While every team in the AAF has a least one former Steeler on their roster Pittsburgh Steelers Womens T-Shirt , with the exception of the Salt Lake Stallions, no one appears to be featuring them as much as Birmingham. Based on the depth charts created by Pro Football Focus, no other team has as many players in starting or key backup roles with Pittsburgh connections as the Iron.
