“We know what Isaac is capable of,” said Tomlin. “He has answered the bell for us in the past. We expect him to do it in a big way moving forward, starting this weekend.”

“We will leave the light on for him and make a determination regarding his availability in the later part of the week,” said Tomlin.
“We’ll keep a close eye on him, not only in terms of what he does but how his body responds to it will be an indicator of his readiness,” said Tomlin. “We will monitor that day-to-day.”
The only player Tomlin ruled out is running back Le’Veon Bell. Bell is no longer wearing a walking boot, but Tomlin said he still isn’t expected to play.
‘Not from a health standpoint, but young guys like him have to practice in order to be able to participate,” said Tomlin. At the very best he will be a partial participant (in practice) this week.”
