Boswell (groin) practiced without restrictions Thursday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports. Boswell was unavailable for Pittsburgh's Week 17 matchup against the Browns, watching from the sidelines as Matthew Wright knocked down all three of his field-goal attempts as well as his lone point-after try. It remains to be seen who will suit up Sunday against Cleveland, but Boswell is currently the only kicker on Pittsburgh's active roster. With the veteran amidst a career season that included a 95 percent conversion rate, it's probable Boswell gets the nod in a high-leverage spot.
Boswell (groin) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports. Boswell last suited up in Week 15, but he'll hope to show enough progress in practice this week to handle kicking duties for Sunday's wild-card matchup with the Browns. If Boswell can't go, Matthew Wright would continue to fill in.
Head coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that Boswell (groin) will try to work his way back for Sunday's wild-card game against the Browns, Missi Matthews of the Steelers' official site reports. Boswell returned to full practice participation last Wednesday before sitting out the final two sessions of the week. It's unclear if he aggravated his injury, but he'll try to shake the injury for the first round of playoffs. Boswell's status should be clearer when the Steelers reveal their first practice report of the week this Wedesday. Matthew Wright -- who has made all four field-goal attempts and all seven extra-point tries in Boswell's place this year -- will kick for the Steelers on Sunday if Boswell can't go.
Boswell (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game at Cleveland. Boswell did not participate in practice Thursday or Friday and will consequently miss his second straight contest. The veteran kicker practiced in full Wednesday, so it's unclear if he reaggravated the groin issue or is simply receiving an extra week of rest with Pittsburgh gearing up for the postseason. Matthew Wright was called up from the practice squad last week to kick for the Steelers and will likely return to the role Sunday.
Boswell (groin) did not practice Thursday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports. Boswell practiced in full Wednesday, so it's possible that he's only receiving a day of workload maintenance. The Steelers have already announced that a number of key starters will sit Week 17, so if there are any lingering questions regarding Boswell's health, he could end up being rested for the playoffs.
