A few items coming out of coach Tom Cable’s press briefing:
– Jason Campbell will start at quarterback against Pittsburgh. Bruce Gradkowski will be the backup.
“He’s earned the right to do that. Four out of the last five games are wins,” Cable said. “Bruce will be the backup and we’ll go from there.”
– Tight end Zach Miller is “much, much better and should be ready to go on Wednesday,” Cable said. Cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha is also much better, but still might not practice. Defensive tackle John Henderson may practice. He’s been out since Week 2 with a stress fracture, so even if Henderson does practice, it may take another week to get him ready for a game.
– Wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey has a sore hamstring and may not practice Wednesday. Chaz Schilens will not practice.
