The Steelers wrapped up another practice session on Friday with both defensive end Travis Kirschke (calf) and linebacker Lawrence Timmons (ankle) sitting out once again. Kirschke will not play on Monday night and it is looking less likely that Timmons will be ready as well. The Steelers still have a practice scheduled on Saturday, before flying to Denver on Sunday. No public decision has been made on safety Ryan Clark, but all signs point to him sitting out on Monday as well. The official word will not be known until a couple hours before kick-off.
For the Broncos on Friday, tackle Ryan Harris (toes) and defensive end Ryan McBean (knee) did not practice once again. Safety Josh Barrett (hamstring) was limited on Friday after sitting out yesterday. Safety David Bruton (groin) and cornerback Jack Williams (illness) both practiced fully after being limited on Thursday. Running back Peyton Hillis (not injury related) was absent from practice.
