The Steelers held their final practice on Friday before leaving for Dallas Monday morning and got some good news. Cornerback Bryant McFadden, safety Troy Polamalu and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders were all back on the field for the first time this week.
Left tackle Jonathan Scott (ribs), center Maurkice Pouncey (ankle) and safety Will Allen (knee) all sat out again.
Nobody has been talking about the injury to Scott, but the fact that he's still missing practices is concerning.
Trai Essex would start at left tackle if Scott is unable to play – though word is that he is expected to tough it out.
