The Steelers concluded their practice preparations on Friday for the week 11 home game on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders. S Will Allen (concussion) has been ruled out after sitting out a 3rd straight day. He will miss his 2nd straight game in a row. DE Aaron Smith (triceps) has long been ruled out. DE Nick Eason (illness), S Troy Polamalu (Achilles), LB Lawrence Timmons (hip), CB Crezdon Butler (quad), G Chris Kemoeatu (ankle) and WR Hines Ward (concussion) all practiced fully on Friday and all are listed as probably on the Friday injury report. DE Brett Keisel (hamstring ) is questionable but did work fully on Friday. He will likely be a game-time decision.
For the Raiders on Friday, WR Chaz Schilens (knee) suited up and was limited but will be out this week. TE Zach Miller (foot), CB Nnamdi Asomougha (ankle), WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (shoulder) and DT John Henderson (foot) were all limited again today, but there is at least a chance all three could be available to play against Pittsburgh as they are listed as questionable.
