Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown returned to practice on Wednesday in a limited capacity. Running back Isaac Redman also practiced and looks on track to play on Sunday.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown was limited at Wednesday's practice after missing Pittsburgh's last two games with an ankle injury. The Steelers hope Brown can play on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, but his status is questionable.
Missing from practice for the Steelers were quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (rib, shoulder), quarterback Byron Leftwich (ribs), wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery (ribs), tackle Marcus Gilbert (ankle), defensive end Ziggy Hood (back) and safety Troy Polamalu (calf).
Roethlisberger and Leftwich have both already been ruled out for Sunday and Charlie Batch is slated to start at quarterback. Cotchery has also been ruled out for Sunday. Polamalu and Gilbert, who have each missed at least the last five games, are both expected to be out again against the Browns.
Running back Isaac Redman took part in practice after suffering a concussion in the Steelers 13-10 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Redman appears to be capable of passing all his tests and play on Sunday barring any setbacks.
Rookie guard David DeCastro returned to practice on Wednesday for the first time since injuring his knee in the preseason. Pittsburgh has 21 days before they must either activate him or place him on injured reserve for the season.
