Jones played in three games before he suffered a wrist injury and was then placed on short-term IR. Allen (thumb) was listed as probable heading into Week 14 against Cincinnati.
Linebackers coach Keith Butler is cautiously optimistic. "I hope he can [return], but we'll see," Butler told ESPN. "A linebacker's got to be able to use his hands. If he can't use his hands, he can't play. He's defenseless, and we're going to to put him on the field if he's defenseless."
Jones has been working out and attending practices and team meetings. He has 21 days to play after the Steelers activate him.
Jones cannot return to game action until Nov. 17 against Tennessee. He played in the first three games of the season and registered two sacks.
