Offensive tackle Mathias Nkwenti went down with back spasms and did not return to practice. Head coach Bill Cowher could not say if Nkwenti would return Thursday.
The injury leaves the Steelers with just two healthy tackles on
their active roster, Todd Fordham and Oliver Ross. The team
also has rookie Morgan Pears on its practice squad.
Cornerback Chad Scott also missed practice Wednesday to
attend the funeral of his mother who died Friday.
In other news, the Steelers released linebacker James Harrison
from their practice squad and re-signed safety Russell Stuvaints.
