Steelers linebacker Jarvis Jones is still feeling the effects of the dislocated wrist that cost him the bulk of his 2014 campaign.

Jones, who saw limited action down the stretch last season, told the Tribune-Review that he’s still dealing with some lingering issues from wrist surgery.

"It was a serious injury and I am still rehabbing it and everything but I still have some strength and motion and mobility stuff I am working on with it,” Jones said.

The Steelers are hoping Jones can start living up to his potential as a former first-round pick. He worked ahead of veteran James Harrison in this week’s OTAs despite barely seeing the field after Harrison returned to the lineup in Week 16 last season. 

Jones finished the year with two sacks in seven games, giving him three sacks in his young career.
