|Steelers Dealing with Injuries Going into Bears Game
|PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker Lawrence Timmons practiced Wednesday as he recovers from a high ankle sprain that occurred August 22nd, but did not finish the workout.
The Steelers were hopeful Timmons could play Sunday in Chicago, but the injury flare-up is a setback. Timmons originally was hurt during an exhibition game against Washington.
Timmons and wide receiver Limas Sweed were listed on the Steelers' injury report as having limited participation in practice. Sweed developed a foot problem during practice and his status for Sunday is uncertain.
Tyrone Carter, the 10-year safety who will replace the injured Troy Polamalu, did not practice for personal reasons.
The Steelers are 1-11 in Chicago, winning only in their last appearance in 1995.
