Friday AM update: Jonnu Smith was able to get a full practice in of Thursday and as long as that continues on Friday, he should be good to go against the Pittsburgh Steelers in a battle of unbeatens. Anthony Firkser has value, but will now likely need a touchdown to truly be a useful play with Smith likely back.

Jonnu Smith left the Titans game last week with an ankle injury in the third quarter, but it appears he will have a chance to play in Week 7, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The Titans take on the undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers and could use Smith.

Against the Texans last week, Anthony Firkser put up big numbers alongside Smith and then after he left. Firkser finished with eight receptions for 113 yards and a touchdown. If Smith can’t get back, Firkser would have some fantasy value in Week 7, especially with the Steelers losing linebacker Devin Bush for the year.
