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 the 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) was a full participant at practice Wednesday.
Wilcox was nearly active the Steelers' victory over the Vikings on Sunday, but was ultimately did not suit up. Now clear of the league's concussion protocol, the 26-year-old will likely resume his role as reserve safety and special teams contributor.
Wilcox (concussion) is still in protocol but could play in Sunday's game against the Bears, Dave Lolley of the Washington Observer-Reporter reports.
Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Tuesday that Wilcox is at the tail-end of protocol, so it looks like his clearance could come this week. Until the Steelers can provide an official update on Wilcox's status, the safety should be considered day-to-day with the concussion.
Wilcox originally suffered a concussion during the Steelers' Week 1 victory in Cleveland, and it'll keep him sidelined Sunday despite 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 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.
