  • As Andy Reid said following practice, everyone participated in practice to some extent. Only RBs Darrel Williams and Clyde Edwards-Helaire were limited. Both Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce participated in full.

  • Look for status upgrades throughout the week to determine whether Williams and Edwards-Helaire will have a shot to be good to go on Sunday.

  • Najee Harris is the big name to keep an eye on for the Steelers this week. He was limited in Week 18 with an elbow injury and started off the week as a non-participant is not ideal. He’s the biggest offensive weapon for Pittsburgh and anything short of him being 100% on Sunday would be a huge loss.
