NOTES: DL, Richard Seymour continues to be listed as questionable on the injury report. His status is still unknown, and will likely remain that way until teams are required to list the players who are active or inactive on gameday.

FB Patrick Pass, who was first listed on Tuesday's Scout report as being hurt in the Colts game, appears to have suffered an ankle injury. While Pass claims he's fine, he has been listed as 50-50 for Sunday's game.

LB Ted Johnson, made an appearance on Thursday's injury report with a case of flu like symptoms. It's likely Johnson will do whatever it takes to get on the field for the Steelers game, one where he is expected to shore up the run support defense.

STEELERS: All players practiced on Thursday. QB Ben Roethlisberger who may have been nursing a bad thumb in the Divisional round has not been listed on the injury report. Roethlisberger had difficulty controlling passes against the Jets, and has decided to forego the use of gloves this week against New England.
