Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth has been inactive since Week 5 due to a hamstring injury, last playing in Week 4 vs. the Houston Texans. The former second-round pick could be on his way back to the lineup, though.
According to head coach Mike Tomlin, Freiermuth could return to practice this week, which would open his 21-day activation window off IR.
“[I] feel really good about Pat Freiermuth,” Tomlin said.

Freiermuth has eight receptions and two touchdowns this season in four games. Getting him back would be a big upgrade for the Steelers’ offense.
