2022 Week 8 Injury Report: Eagles vs Steelers

The undefeated Philadelphia Eagles host the 2-5 Steelers in the Battle of the Keystone State. Both teams will come into the game relatively healthy, but the Steelers could be missing a couple of important players

Here's a look at the Week 8 injury report:

*DE Derek Barnett (ACL)

Barnett tore his ACL in Week 1 and is out for the rest of the season.



Here's a look at the Steelers injury report:


CB Levi Wallace (shoulder)

Wallace took over as a starter during the first month of the season, but the Steelers will have some problems with their cornerbacks on Sunday.


DT Larry Ogunjobi (knee)

The Steelers will be without one of their starting d-linemen as Ogunjobi will miss his first game of the year with this injury. Chris Wormley is the backup to Ogunjobi according to their unofficial depth chart; he has played 38% of the team's defensive snaps so far this season, registering 18 tackles (3 for loss)


DB Josh Jackson (groin)

Jackson has been a rotational cornerback so far for the Steelers since they have been having issues with their defensive backs this year. Ahkello Witherspoon, Cameron Sutton, Arthur Maulet, and James Pierre will likely be the main four cornerbacks on Sunday.


K Chris Boswell (groin)

The Steelers currently don't have another kicker on their roster/practice squad, so it's not clear what their contingency plan will be is Boswell can't go.


OLB T.J. Watt: Watt went on IR Week 2 with a pectoral injury and also had a scope to clean out his knee a couple weeks ago, delaying his return. The Steelers have their bye Week 9, but Watt is trying his best to be activated for this game.
