Mosley has not played since injuring his hamstring on Oct. 9 in a 16-10 loss to the Washington Redskins. Despite missing two games, Mosley still ranks fourth on the team with 29 tackles.
Outside linebacker Terrell Suggs practiced last Tuesday, but sat out Wednesday’s session. He tore his left biceps in the team’s 27-23 setback to the New York Giants on Oct. 16, but has insisted that he should be able to play Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers at M&T Bank Stadium.
Free safety Lardarius Webb participated in practice for the first time since suffering a concussion in a 24-16 loss to the New York Jets on Oct. 23. Others who returned for the first time since the Jets contest include return specialist Devin Hester Sr. (pulled groin), outside linebacker Albert McClellan, tight end Dennis Pitta, wide receiver Mike Wallace and running back Terrance West (Northwestern High, Towson University).
Cornerback Shareece Wright practiced for the first time since the week leading up to the Giants game and has missed two of the past three games. Wright’s absence had been filled by Sheldon Price (against Washington) and rookie Tavon Young.
Four players were absent from the portion of practice open to the media, including wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. Smith, who has not played since injuring his ankle against the Redskins, still ranks third on the team in catches (27) and yards (310).
Outside linebackers Elvis Dumervil (foot) and Kamalei Correa, and tight end Crockett Gillmore rounded out the players who did not participate.
UPDATE: Mosley and Wright were limited in Wednesday’s practice. Rookie left tackle Ronnie Stanley (foot), Suggs, Webb, right guard Marshal Yanda (shoulder), and rookie cornerback Tavon Young (concussion) fully participated.
Correa (thigh), Dumervil, Gillmore (thigh), and Smith did not practice.
Steelers starting right guard David DeCastro did not practice for non-injury reasons. Three other starters in wide receiver Antonio Brown (hip), right tackle Marcus Gilbert (high ankle sprain), and defensive end Cameron Heyward (hamstring) fully participated.
