Chickillo was able to fully practice Friday after having been held out to begin the week, and he could be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt against the Raiders. The rotational linebacker has yet to miss a game this season.
Chickillo (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Chris Adamski of triblive.com reports.
Chickillo suffered an ankle injury during Sunday's loss to the Chargers, and he hasn't returned to practice since. If the rotational linebacker were to miss any time, L.J. Fort, Tyler Matakevich and Olasunkanmi Adeniyi could all be in line for an uptick in snaps against the Raiders in Week 14.
Chickillo suffered an ankle injury during a Week 11 win over the Jaguars, but appears to have returned to full health. Barring any setbacks, expect Chickillo to serve his usual role as a rotational linebacker and special-teams asset against the Broncos on Sunday.
Chickillo (ankle) is not expected to take the practice field Tuesday, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.
It's unclear when Chickillo picked up the injury, but it's apparently serious enough to keep him out of practice. The sixth-round pick has been solid for the Steelers this season, racking up 15 tackles (nine solo) one sack and two fumble recoveries. If Chickillo is forced to miss time, L.J. Fort could see more snaps in his absence.
