“That’s the league, man, you just gotta be ready for whatever situation,” Sylvester said after practice today.

“You never know until game time,” Sylvester said. “They haven’t given me the nod or anything like that. They just have me taking reps and just getting ready to play if it’s necessary, which should be done every week so I’m just preparing like I do every week.”
Sylvester has one career NFL start, on Oct. 30, 2011 against New England. He said he’s getting more reps on defense in practice this week than usual.
“Yeah, yeah, yeah, for the time being,” Sylvester said. “But you never know until game day.”
“I’m ready,” Taylor said. “That’s up to ‘Coach T’ (head coach Mike Tomlin) and (head athletic trainer) John Norwig but I feel good.”
