Gilbert will remain subject to the league's concussion protocol, while his status for the AFC championship may be in question if the Steelers were to advance past the divisional round.
Gilbert figures to be replaced by Chris Hubbard at right tackle, but the former could return if he's able to clear the league's concussion protocol in a timely manner.
Gilbert (suspension) has returned to the Steelers' active roster.
Gilbert was given a four-game suspension in late November for violating the league's policy regarding performance enhancing substances. The 29-year-old will hope to reclaim his starting spot at right tackle, but it's not guaranteed with fill-in Chris Hubbard having started 10 of 14 games this season due to Gilbert's injuries and suspension.
Gilbert has battled the hamstring injury for the better part of the season but looks to be in full health after the additional rest from the team's bye week. The 29-year-old should slot back in at right tackle against the Colts on Sunday.
