Danny Trevathan, Jarvis Jones will return to practice

Some reinforcements could be on the way for teams hoping to make a playoff push.

The Denver Broncos will get a boost as linebacker Danny Trevathan will return to practice Monday, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, according to a team source.

The target for Trevathan's return will be Week 14, on Dec. 7, per Rapoport.

The Broncos placed Trevathan in the injured reserve-designated to return list in October after the starter suffered a crack in the bone just above his left knee. Brandon Marshall has performed phenomenally in Trevathan's stead.

The linebacker's return will boost the Broncos' defense for their playoff run.

Sticking in the AFC, the Pittsburgh Steelers are also bringing outside linebacker Jarvis Jones off IR-recall. The team announced that Jones practiced with the team Monday, opening the three-week window for his return. He can be activated through Dec. 15.

Jones was in the midst of a disappointing season before suffering a wrist injury that required surgery in Week 3. Jones, the 2013 first-round draft pick, recorded 14 tackles and two sacks in three games.

On a Steelers' defense that has been gashed week after week, any help is beneficial. Getting Jones back in the lineup as soon as possible will be an enhancement as Pittsburgh fights for a playoff spot in the tight AFC North.
