"Jerome did more today than he did even last week," said head coach Bill Cowher. "Barring a setback, he should be OK to play Sunday."
He practiced last Thursday, but suffered swelling in the knee and sat out Friday's session.
In other news Wednesday, backup center Chukky Okobi suffered a bruised shoulder during practice and did not return. The injury is not considered serious.
Wide receiver Plaxico Burress (ankle) and running back Chris Fuamatu-Ma'afala (chest) did not practice Wednesday. Burress was held out as a precaution, while Fuamatu-Ma'afala is still probably a week from returning. The Steelers released former Chartiers Valley High School running back Antwon McCray from their practice squad and signed wide receiver Francis St. Paul.
