Outside linebacker Alex Highsmith, who was limited yesterday, did not practice today. This is a bad attendance trend for Steeler Nation, who was expecting Highsmith to start the season. Fortunately they have a former Pro Bowl outside linebacker in Melvin Ingram, waiting in the wings to start. If Highsmith doesn’t play, I’d also expect training camp phenom Jamir Jones to get some defensive snaps.
Tyson Alualu and Kendrick Green both returned to practice fully today. Green was limited yesterday and Alualu did not practice and was probably given a vet day off.
