Steelers outside linebacker Jarvis Jones could make his return to active duty this Sunday. During his press conference today, Coach Tomlin said that Jones had a positive week last week, and “could possibly be an asset” to the Steelers against Cincinnati this Sunday. Tomlin added, “We’re comfortable with the things we’re seeing from him.”
The team has until December 15th to activate Jones, who was cleared to resume practice activities last Monday. The 2nd year linebacker had surgery to repair a dislocated wrist during the Carolina Panther game in September.
It will be interesting to see how the team gets him back into the rotation. Assuming his wrist is 100%, does he get his starting job back, or do they slowly work him back into the fold? Hopefully we’ll get the answer soon either way.
