The good news is that Tuitt said the injury was not as bad as originally feared.

Lastly, wide receiver Antonio Brown continued his progress as a full participant Thursday after also practicing in full Wednesday. Finney was injured against the Cleveland Browns in Week 17.


According to Trib Live's Joe Rutter, Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Artie Burns said he has a hyperextended knee and expects to be limited in Thursday's practice. The Athletic first reported that cornerbacks Mike Hilton and Cameron Sutton said that Burns suffered a right knee injury during practice on Wednesday.

Javon Hargrave was a new addition to the injury report and is another one fans will want to keep an eye on as game day approaches. He will have only limited participation in Thursday's practice but expects to be ready for the Jaguars. With the injury to Tuitt, the Steelers defensive line is in danger of being seriously undermanned if both players can not play. He didn't participate on Thursday.
