Ladarius Green is still on the physically unable to perform list but started practicing Oct. 25. The Steelers have a 21-day window from that date to activate Green, who signed a four-year, $20 million deal in the offseason.
Though it's uncertain when Green will be physically ready coming off his ankle injury, Tomlin has noticed Green's preparation.
"It has been a pleasant surprise he’s displayed some detail in his work," Tomlin said. "I think we’re going to analyze it week to week, with this week being included in that as well."
