FOXBORO (CBS) – Corner Ras-I Dowling and linebacker Dane Fletcher were the only two Patriots not on the field for Thursdays practice.

The Pats practiced indoors Thursday as they prepare to head to Pittsburgh and face the 5-2 Steelers.

Safety Josh Barrett (thumb), Leigh Bodden (thumb), running back BenJarvis Green-Ellis (toe), defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth (back), linebacker Jerod Mayo (knee), and Sebastian Vollmer (back) were all limited on Thursday, as they were Wednesday as well.

Dowling was limited on Wednesday but sat out practice while nursing a hip injury. The rookie corner has only been able to play in the Patriots first two games of the season this year due to injuries.
