[December 19, 2013]  (The Sports Xchange)   WR Brandon Marshall was held out of practice Wednesday due to hamstring soreness. Coach Marc Trestman said it isn't a serious issue and expects Marshall back by the end of the week. He didn't expect it to impact Marshall's availability for the game.

LB Lance Brigg's status (shoulder) is still expected to be solidified on Friday after his limited participation in Wednesday's practice.

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.
