Pittsburgh Steelers safety Sean Davis returned to practice Friday, an indication he will play in Sunday’s must-win regular-season finale.

Davis, who has a quad injury, joins running back James Conner as being listed as questionable on the team’s official status report. Typically in recent years, those listed as questionable Friday have tended to play for the Steelers in games on Sunday.

Inside linebacker Vince Williams, though, is considered doubtful after sitting out a full week of practice because of a toe injury. If Williams doesn’t play, L.J. Fort is expected to play a significant role in his place.

Davis suffered a quad injury in this past Sunday’s loss at New Orleans and did not practice Wednesday or Thursday.

Conner went through a full week of practice, his first full practices since suffering an ankle injury late in a Dec. 2 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. Despite missing the past three games, Conner ranks sixth in the AFC in rushing yards with 909. He’s also tied for third in the NFL in rushing touchdowns (12).

Rookie Jaylen Samuels filled in as the featured back during Conner’s stead.
