Steelers starting safety Minkah Fitzpatrick is out of the NFL’s concussion protocol.

He was a full participant in practice all week and has no designation.

Fitzpatrick has played all 240 defensive snaps this season and has 24 tackles, two interceptions, two pass breakups and a touchdown.

The Steelers have only one player with a status for Sunday’s game against the Jets: Cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon will not play. He sat out all week with a hamstring injury.

Pittsburgh added cornerback Cameron Sutton to its practice report Friday. He was limited with a groin injury but has no designation.

Offensive guard Kevin Dotson (ankle) and punter Pressley Harvin (left hip) were full participants all week and good to go.

  1. Steelers should sit Fitz. They don’t need him tp beat the Jets, especially if Zach Wilson is starting

  2. I remember how confident I felt years ago when the Patriots starter got hurt and a little known back up named Brady was coming in to finish the game.
    If Minkah is medically ready, he needs to play.

  3. Based on all the Tua experts I assume Fitzpatrick is being rushed back and he has a 100% chance of concussion if a feather falls in him.
