PITTSBURGH — Wide receivers Calvin Austin III and Allen Robinson II both returned to practice for the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday as the continued their preparations to face the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday in Week 13.

Austin suffered an ankle injury late in Sunday’s 16-10 win over the Cincinnati Bengals that was initially feared to be serious, but he made a speedy return to action. Head coach Mike Tomlin said on Tuesday that the early indications were positive, and after missing Wednesday’s session, Austin was back in action, catching passes and running routes with his teammates on Thursday.

“Feeling good, doing good,” Austin said. “I’m very hopeful. I just keep on praying and hope in God that he continues to give me strength. I hope he gives me the ability to play this weekend. Just putting my trust in him and I think me trusting in him, I’ll be able to go.”

The Steelers also got veteran wide receiver Robinson back after a one-day absence. Robinson was listed on the injury report for Wednesday as having been given a rest day, but also with the designation of a foot injury. It’s not clear when Robinson hurt his foot, but he is not expected to miss any game time.
