Left tackle Branden Albert continued to be a limited participant on the practice field Friday when the Chiefs worked out under unusually warm conditions at their facility.
Temperatures right around 70 degrees were in contrast to the weather forecast for Monday night in Pittsburgh β an 80 percent chance of rain with temperatures in the high 30s.
Albert has been more watcher than participant in the last two practices because of back problems. The tightness in the low back has lessened but not enough to send him through an entire practice.
The only other limited participant was TE Steve Maneri with his ankle injury.
Listed as fully participating were: OT Jeff Allen (head), CB Javier Arenas (head), RB Jamaal Charles (neck), WR Terrance Copper (calf), RB Nat Eachus (head), WR Devon Wylie (hamstring).
For the Steelers, three players that have not practiced this week have already been declared out of Monday night’s game: SS Troy Polamalu (calf), WR Antonio Brown (ankle) and LB Stevenson Sylvester (hamstring). OT Marcus Gilbert (ankle) did not practice on Friday and RB Rashard Mendenhall (Achilles) was a limited participant.
Working the entire practice were RB Jonathan Dwyer (quad), RB Chris Rainey (ribs) and K Shaun Suisham (left ankle).
