Friday saw Tyree Wilson a limited participant in practice. That was a step in the right direction for the rookie edge rusher who missed Wednesday and Thursday with an undisclosed illness. The team has officially listed him as Questionable for Sunday’s home opener against the Steelers.

It wouldn’t be a the worst thing if Wilson were to be shut down for Sunday’s game. Even at full strength over the first two games this season, he has a 0% win rate. If he is not 100%, that would not help things in that area.
Wilson was playing as much as he was because Chandler Jones has been out with personal issues. With Jones placed on the Non-Football Illness list, the top option to start at DE across from Maxx Crosby is Malcolm Koonce with practice squad DE Isaac Rochell again called up to rotate in.
The only player on the Steelers injury report is WR Gunner Olszewski who is Out with a concussion.
