LB Lance Brigg's status (shoulder) is still expected to be
solidified on Friday after his limited participation in Wednesday's
DE C.J. Wilson (ankle) returned to practice Wednesday as a limited
participant. Wilson didn't play the last three games.
T Joe Long was signed Wednesday off the Steelers practice squad, so
he was placed on the 53-man roster. Long received a two-year deal.
The 6-foot-5, 304-pounder had been on Pittsburgh's practice squad
all year after entering the NFL in 2012 as an undrafted free agent
from Wayne State. Long won the Gene Upshaw Award as the top Division
II lineman in 2011.
