Usually these posts are written with a clenched teeth evenness. This player's out, but we knew that. That player is questionable but hasn't practiced the last two days. And so on.
Not wanting to put the time and effort into figuring out the last time that was, we'll aim for a broad target and say it's been a while.
Tight end Heath Miller has been limited, most likely as a precaution. Cortez Allen missed the last two games but has practiced fully. Same for Le'Veon Bell, who is all set to make his debut Sunday.
If not for the loss of three players earlier in the season - Maurkice Pouncey, Larry Foote and LaRod Stephens-Howling, one might dare to make the statement the Steelers are, in fact, healthy.
We won't send that missive here. Not until after the game, at least. Even then, we might not jinx it - we'll just make the blanket assumption Willie Colon or Chris Fumatu-Ma'Afala are hurt, wherever they happen to be.
