*Artie Burns – Noteworthy – Injury
CB Artie Burns (knee) who suffered a hyperextended right knee, in Wednesday’s practice, practiced Friday in advance of Sunday’s playoff game against Jacksonville. Burns didn’t practice Thursday but is expected to play Sunday.

Antonio Brown – Hot News – Injury
WR Antonio Brown was sent home from practice on Friday with an illness, the team announced.
Coach Mike Tomlin told reporters of the decision on Brown, who has been sidelined for the final two weeks of the regular season since sustaining a calf injury in a 27-24 loss to the New England Patriots on Dec. 17. “I think we’ve all seen Antonio play enough that we know what he’s capable of,” Tomlin said of Brown, who was a full participant in practice on both Wednesday and Thursday.

Stephon Tuitt – Noteworthy – Injury
DE Stephon Tuitt (elbow) practiced fully Friday and is expected to play in Sunday’s game against Jacksonville. He said Thursday that he injured his elbow while practicing Wednesday.
