It’s not looking good for cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon, who once again did not practice with a hamstring injury

Safety Minkah Fitzpatrick, in concussion protocol, was once again a full participant.

Offensive lineman Kevin Dotson, dealing with an ankle injury, was full and kicker Pressley Harvin III was full with a left hip issue.

The one new addition to the report was defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi, who was given a day to rest by the coaches.

Pickens time

He says the plan has been the same as far as getting the ball downfield, however rookie receiver George Pickens said he felt great about practice on Thursday as the Steelers continue to evolve their offense.

Pickens says the offense is coming together and getting comfortable with each other.  He really says they aren’t getting fed up with the lack of production.

“You really can just only take one play at a time, because you can’t let your frustration out,” Pickens said.  “You still got to take it one play at a time.”

He said he saw little ‘lightning sparks’ with the offense against the Browns.  He believes at any time now this could turn into a special group.  He made a special play at Cleveland with his one-handed catch that has caught a lot of attention on social media.

“I kind of made, like even crazier catches in college, but when I caught the ball.  I kind of new, just the fact of what the world thinks about it.  I kind of seen the input on the internet.  I’ll say that’s a good catch for me just to get my teammates to trust me more.”
