ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Steelers have scheduled a physical for free agent Plaxico Burress.
Antonio Brown remains out with a high ankle sprain, and fill-in third receiver Jerricho Cotchery suffered an undisclosed injury in Sunday night's loss to the Ravens. The Steelers likely wouldn't have made their interest in Plax known unless they intended to sign him. It sounds like this deal should get done by Tuesday. Burress, 35, has been out of football this season. He caught 45 balls for 612 yards and eight touchdowns with the Jets in 2011.
