Minkah Fitzpatrick returns fully to Steelers practice on Wednesday

The Pittsburgh Steelers will be back at Acrisure Stadium this Sunday after two-straight AFC North road games. As teams across the NFL are dealing with various injuries, the Steelers are once again hopeful to get an All-Pro player back this week after missing the last four games.

In the first injury report this week courtesy of Steelers.com, there are eight names that appear on the list, with no players who were limited while five missed practice.

One player who Steelers fans are keeping their eyes on is All-Pro safety Minkah Fitzpatrik. Missing their last four games after leaving early in Week 8, Fitzpatrick returned to practice on Wednesday and as a full participant. While there is no guarantee Fitzpatrick will be back this week, this is a huge step in the right direction.

The other player who missed Sunday’s game due to injury for the Steelers was defensive tackle Montravius Adams with an ankle despite returning to practice last week as a limited participant each day. On Wednesday, Adams was  able to return in a full capacity.

Two players outlined in Mike Tomlin’s press conference on Tuesday who could miss some practice time early in the week due to ankle issues were wide receiver Calvin Austin III and quarterback Kenny Pickett. On Wednesday, Kenny Pickett was still able to practice as a full participant while Austin was unable to participate.

There were four players on the Steelers who did not practice on Wednesday not specifically due to injury but due to getting extra rest. Two players who did the same thing the last two weeks were cornerback Patrick Peterson and guard Isaac Seumalo. Cam Heyward did not practice due to rest, but also had his groin injury listed as well. Wide receiver Allen Robinson was in a similar situation where he was designated as resting along with a foot injury.
