The Steelers travel to Green Bay this week to play the 2-1 Packers, who are coming off a thrilling 30-28 win over the 49ers in Santa Clara. And the Steelers will get back two starters in outside linebacker T.J. Watt (groin) and wide receiver Diontae Johnson (knee), who both were out for the Bengals game.


Wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (ribs), outside linebacker Alex Highsmith (groin), and Ben Roethlisberger (pectoral) were all full participants for the second straight day, as well. All five players are not on the status report.

Right tackle Chuks Okorafor didn't practice for the third straight day after suffering a concussion against the Bengals and has been ruled out for Sunday. With Okorafor out, it's expected that veteran Joe Haeg, will get the start at right tackle.


Offensive lineman Rashaad Coward didn't practice for the second straight day with an ankle injury and defensive lineman Carlos Davis also didn't practice with a knee injury. Both players have been ruled out. It's Davis' third consecutive game that he'll be inactive.


Wide receiver Chase Claypool, who was limited yesterday with a hamstring injury, didn't practice on Friday and is listed as questionable.


For the Packers, head coach Matt LaFleur has ruled out wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling (hamstring) and will list offensive tackle Elgton Jenkins (ankle) and cornerback Kevin King (concussion) as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Steelers.
