Steelers cornerback Justin Gilbert was carted off the practice field Wednesday, per multiple reports.

Gilbert was listed as limited on the team’s injury and participation report Wednesday with a knee injury. In-season practices are closed, and the Steelers by rule don’t have to provide any further details.

The Steelers acquired Gilbert in a trade with the Browns last month and he’s played in three of the Steelers’ four games. A first-round pick of the Browns in 2014, Gilbert struggled on and off the field in his first two seasons and was not in the plans of the Browns’ new regime.
