Steelers WR James Washington returned to practice
The Pittsburgh Steelers had a very quiet bye week after beating the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday Night Football in Week 6. However quiet it might have been, the team took full advantage of their week off as they were able to return some players to the field. Pittsburgh had more than 10 players on Week 6’s injury report as their bye couldn’t have come at a better time.
Wide receiver James Washington returned to practice on Monday after missing the team’s last game in addition to cornerback Steven Nelson.
Bye week came at a good time for the Steelers. WR James Washington (shoulder) and CB Steve Nelson (groin) we’re back at practice today. Both said they were glad for the bye to heal up and rehab.

The Steelers are still waiting on the return of some other key players such as Jaylen Samuels, Mason Rudolph, and Roosevelt Nix just to name a few on the offensive side of the ball.
While the team will return to action this week, they will host a Miami Dolphins team who is looking to yet again trade another piece of their team away. Although winless, the Dolphins put up a significant fight against the Buffalo Bills and could try to push that good play into Week 8’s matchup.
It won’t be a cakewalk, but for a team that is coming off a win and looking to prove they are better than what their roster and record say they are, you know they will be coming in looking to make a statement against one of the league’s bottom feeders.
