TE Todd Heap and G Daryn Colledge are expected to return to action this week against the Steelers and more player notes inside.

--G Daryn Colledge has been cleared to play after suffering a concussion a week ago.

--OL D'Anthony Batiste played well as Daryn Colledge's replacement in the last game. Batiste's best position is tackle, but he stepped in and played well at left guard. That's a positive development for a team in need of young offensive linemen.

--QB Kevin Kolb has thrown for one touchdown and five interceptions in the past three games. His completion rate, once well about 60 percent, is now 58.7 percent.

--CB A.J. Jefferson is coming off his best game. He dropped an interception, but he also broke up several passes and made an open-field tackle on Adrian Peterson.

--TE Todd Heap hopes to play this week after missing a game because of a strained hamstring. The week off will help, but Heap missed practice Monday.
