Wilson made his first visit to the Steelers team facility last Wednesday since he was severely burned in a house fire just days before the Steelers AFC wild-card game against the Denver Broncos.
Wilson reportedly sustained burns on 45 percent of his body during the January early morning fire and also suffered from smoke inhalation. He was initially placed in a medically induced coma during the early part of his recovery.
Wilson will be entering his fifth season as coach of the Steelers running backs.
