The Steelers should get a huge boost with the return of tight end Pat Freiermuth, who is expected to participate in practice later today, as first reported by Dale Lolley of the Steelers' official site.
Freiermuth has been sidelined since October 3rd with a hamstring injury he sustained in the team's loss to the Houston Texans.
During his press conference yesterday, head coach Mike Tomlin did not disclose whether he would be a limited or full participant in today's session. His availability for Sunday's game will inevitably be determined by the extent of his participation. With this noted, his presence on the field is a good sign for the team.
In addition to Freiermuth, the team is expected to have offensive lineman Dan Moore Jr., James Daniels, defensive end DeMarvin Leal, and punter Pressley Harvin III available to practice during the week.
