Cameron Heyward returns to Steelers practice; JuJu Smith-Schuster, James Conner do not

Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Cameron Heyward works against Seattle Seahawks offensive guard Mike Iupati during a game last month. Heyward returned to practice Thursday after sitting out Wednesday’s session.

Two-thirds of the way through the Pittsburgh Steelers practice week, injury has prevented both their reigning Pro Bowl offensive skill players to yet take part.

Like each was on Wednesday, receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster and running back James Conner were listed on the team’s official injury report as not practicing. Smith-Schuster has a toe injury and Conner left this past Monday’s win against Cincinnati because of an ankle injury.

Also continuing to miss practice because of injuries are tight end Vance McDonald (back) and special teamers Roosevelt Nix (knee) and Anthony Chickillo (foot). Each has missed at least one prior game.

The only player dealing with an injury who was upgraded to practice participation after missing Wednesday’s session was defensive end Cameron Heyward. Heyward played through a quadriceps injury suffered early during Monday’s game.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
