Brandon Pettigrew (ankle) returned to practice on Friday.
Pettigrew likely put in just a limited session, but it's a step in the right direction. It's his first practice of any kind since suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 14. Pettigrew may have been too late, though. The one limited practice session may not be enough to get him back on the field for the Week 17 finale against the Bears. We should know more on Friday afternoon.
