Defensive end Aaron Smith will miss a second straight game with a sprained right foot, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said today.
But Tomlin gave a conditional thumbs up for halfback Rashard Mendenhall, who missed last Sunday's game with a hamstring injury.
Tomlin listed a handful of players questionable for Sunday's game against Jacksonville at Heinz Field: tackle Marcus Gilbert (shoulder), nose tackle Casey Hampton (shoulder), linebacker Jason Worilds (thigh) and halfback Mewelde Moore (high ankle sprain).
Linebacker James Harrison continues to be out with a broken orbital bone.
Tomlin said guard Chris Kemoeatu's status will be determined as the practice week proceeds.
