The Pittsburgh Steelers were missing first-round draft pick Jarvis Jones during yesterday’s practice session as the linebacker was dealing with a head injury, according to Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh-Tribune Review.

There was no indication that Jones had suffered a head injury during the Steelers’ win over the New York Jets. It’s not clear if the head injury Jones is dealing with is a concussion.
On the season, Jones has 18 combined tackles and no sacks. If Jones is unable to suit up for the Steelers, they will likely use reserve linebacker Jason Worilds as a starter.
Beyond Jones, offensive lineman Marcus Gilbert, defensive lineman Brett Keisel, tight end Heath Miller and linebacker LaMarr Woodley were limited during yesterday’s practice.
