Jarvis Jones to be game-time decision

Pittsburgh Steelers starting outside linebacker Jarvis Jones let the team’s medical staff know at the beginning of the week that he was dealing from concussion like symptoms and he was diagnosed with a concussion just a few short days later.

Jones has had to miss practice as he awaits medical clearances from an independent neurologist, but there is some believe he could be ready to go on Sunday afternoon when the Steelers welcome the division rival Baltimore Ravens to Heinz Field.

According to Pro Football Talk, Jones will officially be a game-time decision with the team determining his status shortly before kickoff.

If Jones is unable to start in the big game, the Steelers will turn to Jason Worilds to occupy the starting gig.

Worilds may lack the dynamic pass rushing and playmaking ability that the Steelers get when their 2013 first-round pick is on the field, but he does offer some improvement to their run defense.

We will find out in less than 24 hours whether or not Jones will be able to go.
