“It’s been a while. I am excited to just get back out there, get in the flow of things,” Heyward said.
In a press conference earlier this week, Mike Tomlin said Heyward could come back this week. Tomlin said Anthony McFarland could also come back, but he has not yet been activated.
While recovering from the injury, Heyward said he continued conditioning — so he would be ready when he came back to practice.
“The conditioning has been great,” Heyward said. “I have been running every day. From walking, to going in the pool, to Arc trainer to the bike, there have been a multitude of things I have been trying to do. It’s only benefitting me.”
After suffering a rib injury, Kenny Pickett told reporters Tuesday he will play. He practiced in full Wednesday and does not have an injury designation for Thursday night’s game.
