Steelers defensive end Aaron Smith, listed as doubtful, told me that he expects a decision to be made on his status Sunday. He has been sidelined since Oct. 24 because of a torn triceps, but he said he expects to be put through pushing-and-pulling exercises to test his injured arm before kickoff.
Smith, one of the NFL's elite 3-4 defensive ends, took part in some light conditioning Wednesday and was limited in practice Thursday and Friday.
The Steelers kept Smith on the active roster all season in hopes he would recover in time to help the team during the playoffs.
Safety Will Allen is questionable with a knee injury, and wide receiver Will Arnaz missed Friday's practice with an illness but is expected to play.
