Dupree recorded five tackles (two solo), including a sack, during Sunday's 24-21 loss to Oakland.
The sack was Dupree's first in four games, giving him 5.5 on the season. He needs one more sack to eclipse the career high of six sacks he set last season. Dupree will look to do that in Week 15 against New England, a team against which he had two tackles, including a sack, in late-season matchup last year.
Dupree (pectoral) is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.
Dupree was listed as questionable despite being a full practice participant Friday, as he continues to battle a torn pectoral muscle. The 30-year-old should have his usual starting role at outside linebacker against the Chargers, assuming he can manage the pain.
Dupree was a full participant in Friday's practice, and has gradually worked through his recovery from a pectoral injury all week. The fourth-year linebacker appears to have a legitimate shot of suiting up for Sunday's tilt against the Chargers.
Dupree (pectoral) did not practice Wednesday.
Dupree is nursing what appears to be a significant pectoral injury, putting his status for Sunday's tilt against the Chargers in jeopardy. If the 2015 first-round pick is ultimately unable to suit up Week 13, Anthony Chickillo could draw the start at right outside linebacker.
Dupree is dealing with a pectoral injury that could limit him in practice Tuesday, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.
It's unclear when the Kentucky product picked up the injury, but it seems serious enough to hinder him at practice. Dupree has had a solid season for the Steelers thus far, racking up 29 tackles (20 solo), four sacks and one interception. Dupree's practice participation later in the week will show a clearer picture, but if he can't go Sunday, Anthony Chickillo could see an increase in snaps.
