Diontae Johnson and George Pickens both practiced on Friday, according to Steelers running back Najee Harris.

Johnson, who is dealing with a turf toe injury, did not practice Wednesday or Thursday. He came out of Thursday listed as questionable on the team’s official injury report. However, Diontae Johnson said on Thursday that he should play, and he participated in Friday’s practice, so that seems to track.

Meanwhile, Pickens missed Thursday’s practice while dealing with an illness. He had no game designation, so the Steelers expected him to play. With it seeming that he was back at practice and participating, that seems to be on track as well. Pittsburgh should have both of their top wide receivers for a matchup against one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL. Kenny Pickett officially cleared the concussion protocol and will start as well.

Other players listed as questionable were Terrell Edmunds (Hamstring) and Myles Jack (Groin). It is unknown if they will play on Saturday, as the Steelers are not required to release another injury report prior to Saturday’s game. Edmunds did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday, while Jack practiced in full on Thursday.

All other players that were on the injury report did not have a game designation and are expected to play.
