Friday Injury Report

The Steelers wrapped up their preparation for Sunday night's game against the Miami Dolphins and got good news on the injury front.

Before the team even took the field for their final full practice of the week, quarterback Kenny Pickett, tight end Pat Freiermuth and cornerback Levi Wallace were cleared from the concussion protocol.

Pickett left the Tampa Bay game last week with a concussion, while Freiermuth and Wallace both missed last week's game while in the protocol.

"I am not going to get into the details of it," said Pickett. "I went through it with the doctors, the medical staff. People fly in here to go to these doctors, so I know they are the best in the country. I feel great with where I am at and going into Sunday."

Freiermuth said it was tough missing last week's game, something he hates to do.

"It's tough missing a game," said Freiermuth. "I'm a competitor and I wanted to be out there. For me, my family, the doctors said it wasn't safe to go out there and play. It was the right decision."

Getting Freiermuth back is big for an offense that needs all their weapons.

"Pat's a weapon," said offensive coordinator Matt Canada. "We are playing a really good defense every week. We played two really good defenses the last two weeks. We have another one this week. Everybody has a different scheme, the way they cover people. They have different strengths. Having Pat back adds us another really viable weapon they have to be aware of. How they handle covering him will dictate where the ball should go and who it should go to. The more weapons we have out there the better. We've got good weapons. But having Pat back is awesome."

Receiver Steven Sims (hamstring) didn't practice for the third straight day and has been ruled out for Sunday's game. Cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon (hamstring) is doubtful after being limited on Friday. Witherspoon has missed the last three games with the hamstring injury. Fellow cornerback James Pierre (hip) is listed as questionable after being limited the last two days.
