The bye week couldn't have come at a better time for the Pittsburgh Steelers, considering the laundry list of players who are dealing with an injury of some kind. There are some who have significant injuries, and will miss an extended period of time, while others are hopeful to not miss a beat when they report back to the team prior to their Week 8 Monday Night Football game vs. the Miami Dolphins at Heinz Field. On Wednesday, the day before the team jettisons from the team headquarters to do their own thing for the weekend, Mike Tomlin held court to local media and updated several injured players' statuses heading into the bye. Tomlin said Roosevelt Nix, who was injured his knee during the Week 1 loss vs. the New England Patriots, could return to practice, and the same could be said about James Washington (shoulder), Steven Nelson (groin) and Mark Barron (hamstring).
