The Green Bay Packers received good news for their offensive line Thursday ahead of their Week 10 matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Packers need their offensive line to be as healthy as possible before they play a ferocious Pittsburgh Steelers pass rush.

The Packers listed two offensive linemen, Yosh Nijman (back) and Jon Runyan Jr. (neck), as players who did not participate during Wednesday’s practice. Missing those two players would be concerning against the Steelers, who have 26 sacks coming into Week 10—former Wisconsin Badgers linebacker T.J. Watt has 9.5 of those sacks.
The Green Bay Packers get two OL back on Thursday
According to Matt Schneidman with The Athletic, Nijman and Runyan returned to practice Thursday. That’s a good sign for their availability against the Steelers.
Jaire Alexander and Quay Walker again not practicing.
Yosh Nijman and Jon Runyan Jr. are back at practice after yesterday’s DNPs.

It’s unclear if they were limited or full participants in the practice. The Packers have yet to release an updated injury report. But they’re trending toward getting back on the field.
