Steelers CB says he will play Sunday

Artie Burns says he'll play the Jacksonville Jaguars in Sunday's 1:05 p.m. AFC divisional round playoff game at Heinz Field

Steelers CB Artie Burns (knee) expects to practice Thursday and suit up against the Jaguars.

As for the other surprise listing on the Steelers Thursday injury report, defensive end Stephon Tuitt, it's still unclear as to the seriousness of the elbow injury he reportedly suffered during the team's Wednesday practice that resulted in him reportedly leaving the team's facility with his injured arm in a sling.

Burns underwent an MRI after the injury Wednesday, he said.

Artie Burns appears equally confident he will be able to train on Friday, the all-important final session of the week and hopes to be ready to face the Jacksonville Jaguars at the weekend.

"Once I just make it through the week as healthy as I can and be prepared for Sunday", Burns told Pennlive.com before Thursday's practice. Burns had one interception this season.
