The Pittsburgh Steelers have now wrapped up their last Wednesday practice prior to leaving for London to play Minnesota Vikings this coming Sunday and the first injury report of the week includes some very good news.
Cornerback Cortez Allen (ankle) practiced fully on Wednesday and it is indeed looking like he well return to action this week after missing the last two games with an ankle sprain that he suffered in the season opener.
Running back Le'Veon Bell (foot) also practiced fully during the Wednesday session and baring a setback, he should be able to make his NFL regular-season debut against the Vikings.
Also working fully was nose tackle Steve McLendon (hamstring), who has been battling a minor hamstring strain since the season opener.
Defensive end Brett Keisel (hamstring), however, did not practice on Wednesday because of a hamstring injury. Head coach Mike Tomlin did say on Tuesday, however, that both Keisel and McLendon should be good to go for the Vikings game.

Wow Ben Roethlisberger has some nerve.
I can remember Steelers center Alan Faneca once publicly questioning if a rookie quarterback named BenRoethlisberger was the guy to lead the Steelers.
Two Super Bowl appearances later, I think Roethlisberger has proven that he can play. So it was a bit shocking that Big Ben would publicly blast a rookie and question his effort and his skills...
