While Jones appears good to go, the Patriots don't have a clean bill of health heading into Sunday's matchup as linebacker Ja'Whaun Bentley did not participate in practice due to a toe injury. Safety Adrian Phillips was limited with a rib injury that knocked him out of Week 1, and rookie guard Cole Strange was added to the injury report with a shoulder issue.

As for the Steelers, reigning Defensive Player of the Year T.J. Watt unsurprisingly was a non-participant with a pectoral injury. Running back Najee Harris was limited with a foot issue.
