The Steelers could need running back Jonathan Dwyer to carry the load again on Sunday, against the Redskins.
Dwyer, who didn’t practice Wednesday for reasons unrelated to injury, rushed for 122 yards in a win over the Bengals.
Full participants were Will Allen (ankle), linebacker Chris Carter (hamstring), and center Maurkice Pouncey (knee). Linebacker Brandon Johnson (hamstring), linebacker Adrian Robinson (concussion), and kicker Shaun Suisham (left ankle) practiced on a limited basis.
Pouncey, who missed Sunday night’s win, is expected to be available for the Week Eight game against the Redskins. Polamalu, who has appeared in only two games this season, is expected to miss the game.
