Steelers S Minkah Fitzpatrick returns to practice

Pittsburgh Steelers safety Minkah Fitzpatrick returned to practice on Thursday after he was activated off the non-football injury list.

Fitzpatrick missed the start of training camp after hurting his wrist following a fall from his bicycle.

The 25-year-old Fitzpatrick signed a four-year, $73.6 million contract extension in June.

Fitzpatrick started his career with the Dolphins in 2018 and was traded the Steelers the following season after 18 games in Miami. In 46 games (all starts) in Pittsburgh, Fitzpatrick has 203 tackles, 11 interceptions, three forced fumbles and three touchdowns with 27 passes defended.

He’s been named a first-team All-Pro twice in his first four seasons.
