Wilcox was released by the Steelers on Monday, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports. Wilcox functioned primarily as a depth safety and special teams asset during his short tenure in Pittsburgh. Once the Steelers' front office decided to bring in rookie safeties Terrell Edmunds and Marcus Allen through the draft, the writing on the wall became apparent.
Wilcox recorded five tackles (four solo) and an interception in Sunday's 23-17 overtime loss to the Bears. Wilcox showed no lingering effects from the concussion he sustained last week, picking off a pass thrown behind Zach Miller at the Chicago 21, which led to a tying field goal by Chris Boswell midway through the fourth quarter. This was his first interception of the season and the sixth of his career. He'll look to add to that total in Week 4 against Baltimore, as the Pittsburgh defense recorded two interceptions in their two games against the Ravens last season.
Wilcox (concussion) is inactive for Sunday's tilt against the Vikings, Teresa Varley of Steelers.com reports. Wilcox originally suffered a concussion during the Steelers' Week 1 victory in Cleveland, and it'll keep him sidelined Sunday despite him practicing as a limited participant Friday. Sean Davis and Mike Mitchell are expected to start at safety per usual, with Robert Golden providing depth behind the duo.
Wilcox (concussion) was a limited participant in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings. This was Wilcox's first practice of the week, and even though he was limited, it's a good sign for his possible Week 2 return. Although Wilcox is listed as the No. 2 free safety, he still played 20 defensive snaps before being knocked out in Week 1. These moderate reps won't boost him into fantasy contribution, but it makes him valuable to the Steelers' defense as a whole.
Wilcox is in concussion protocol, Dave Lolley of the Washington Observer-Reporter Wilcox was experiencing concussion symptoms this week after being knocked out in Sunday's win over the Browns. He should be considered day-to-day at this point.
