Steelers corner back Joe Haden puts a hit on the Chiefs' Tyreek Hill in the fourth quarter Sunday, Oct. 15, 2017 at Arrowhead Stadium.

Steelers cornerback Joe Haden was a full practice participant a day after he pledged to make his return from a broken fibula and play in Monday’s game at the Houston Texans.

Guard Ramon Foster, though, did not practice as he continues to progress through the NFL’s concussion protocol.

Linebacker Tyler Matakevich and tight end Vance McDonald also each practiced fully despite nursing shoulder injuries. Matakevich returned from a one-game absence last week but did not play on defense; coordinator Keith Butler on Thursday said that in part was to protect Matakekich as he worked himself back to health. McDonald has missed four of the past five games.

Coach Mike Tomlin previously announced All-Pro receiver Antonio Brown (calf contusion) would not play in Houston.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
