Linebacker Vontaze Burfict (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against Pittsburgh, while wide receiver James Wright (knee) and defensive end Margus Hunt (ankle) are doubtful.

Wright did not practice this week, and Hunt hasn’t practiced since suffering the injury Nov. 16 in New Orleans.

Defensive tackle Domata Peko, who left Sunday’s game in Tampa Bay with an elbow injury, practiced today for the first time this week and was limited. He is listed as questionable for Sunday.

Six players are probable — wide receiver A.J. Green (thigh), defensive end Robert Geathers (hip), H-back Ryan Hewitt (illness), cornerback Adam Jones (concussion), tackle Marshall Newhouse (hip) and guard/center Mike Pollak (knee). All six were full participants today.
