The Steelers listed Ben Roethlisberger and Maurkice Pouncey as being limited in practice with their ankle injuries. Sources said Roethlisberger did little but watch practice.
Among those who did not practice at all were DE Brett Keisel (groin), LB James Harrison (toe), S Troy Polamalu (calf) and two players not expected to play, CB Cortez Allen (shoulder) and RB Mewelde Moore (knee).
Two players who did not play last Sunday returned for a full practice today: G/C Doug Legursky (shoulder) and LB LaMarr Woodley (hamstring).
We're sitting here, and I'm supposed to be the franchise player, and we're talking about practice. I mean listen, we're sitting here talking about practice, not a game, not a game, not a game, but we're talking about practice. Not the game that I go out there and die for and play every game last it's my last but we're talking about practice man. How silly is that?
Aside from Allen and Moore, I'd be surprised if any of the players mentioned don't play this weekend. Plus aside from Legs, those guys all know their jobs and at this point in the season, there's not much more that they get out of actually practicing than just being there to watch and learn the gameplan.
