Jarvis Jones practices; Will Johnson limited
By Scott Brown
PITTSBURGH -- Steelers rookie outside linebacker Jarvis Jones was a full participant at practice Thursday, all but assuring that he will play Sunday against the visiting Titans.
Jones (chest) had been listed as a limited participant on Wednesday.
Fullback Will Johnson (hamstring) was limited in practice for a second consecutive day. Johnson tested his tender hamstring on Wednesday with running and change of direction drills. He is likely to practice fully on Friday if his hamstring responds favorably to the work he has done.
Tight end Heath Miller (knee) was also listed as a limited participant for the second day in a row, and the ninth-year veteran won't play Sunday.
Running back Le'Veon Bell (foot) has been officially ruled out for the season opener, and he did not practice for the second day in a row. Bell, who is recovering from a mid-foot sprain, could test his foot in some individual drills on Friday.
