Safety Minkah Fitzpatrick is set to be back in the Steelers lineup against the Bengals on Sunday.

Fitzpatrick had an appendectomy after telling the team’s medical staff he wasn’t feeling well during the team’s walkthrough practice last Saturday, but he was a full participant in practice for the second straight day on Friday. He did not receive an injury designation for Sunday’s game, which leaves him on track to play.

“It’s pretty good,” Fitzpatrick said, via the team’s website. “Obviously, you feel it a few days off of surgery, on the table. You feel it. I just want to keep working and when Sunday comes around, we’ll see how I feel.”

Cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon has been ruled out with a hamstring injury, but he was the only player on the team to receive an injury designation on Friday.

  1. How on God’s green earth can a guy play in one of the most violent sports, 8 days after an appendectomy?

  2. You don’t want to miss this one. Always lots of sacks & picks when Burrow comes to town.

    Must have forgotten last year when Burrow absolutely destroyed the Squealers. That’s okay…Squealers fans have selective memories.

  4. Steeler fanboys are truly delusional. I guess the Bengals know where to aim when they block him.

  5. Bungle fans are the worst. Burrow threw 4 interceptions in the FIRS HALF last time we played. Your QB is awful. Get out the brooms. Steelers coming for the annual sweep.
