Steelers vs. Titans: Rashard Mendenhall, James Harrison probable

Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall and linebacker James Harrison are both probable for Pittsburgh's Thursday night primetime game against the Tennessee Titans. The Steelers had the second-worst rushing attack in the league prior to Mendenhall's season debut against the Eagles last week. He rushed for 81 yards on 14 attempts and instantly provided a nice boost to the rushing game. The fourth-year back is still working his way back from knee surgery after tearing his ACL on Jan. 1 last season.

Harrison made two solo tackles in his season debut last week, and he continues to deal with his own knee issue. As expected, his defensive teammates, Troy Polamalu and LaMarr Woodley, have been ruled out. Polamalu had a recurring calf injury bother him against the Eagles on a non-contact play on the sideline.

The Steelers are road favorites in Week 6 against a Titans team that has been blown out in four of five games this season. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:20 p.m. ET in Nashville.
