The Steelers practiced again on Thursday and had some good news on the injury front as LB LaMarr Woodley (hamsting) and T Flozell Adams both practiced after sitting out on Wednesday. DE Brett Keisel (hamstring) sat out again and is looking iffy for Sunday night down in New Orleans, but there is a long ways to go on that decision. C Maurkice Pouncey (illness) was added on the injury report Thursday as he sat out with an illness. DE Aaron Smith (triceps) of course did not practice and is ruled out for several weeks right now, he is targeting 4-6 weeks to return from his partially torn triceps that was repaired on Monday.
For the Saints on Thursday,RB Reggie Bush (fibula) and RB Pierre Thomas (ankle) did not practice again and both are looking unlikely to be ready Sunday night. CB Jabari Greer, (shoulder), CB Tracy Porter (knee), C Jonathan Goodwin and LB Scott Shanle (hamstring) were all limited on Thursday.
