While it appears that the Pittsburgh Steelers will get the services of key defensive players Troy Polamalu and James Harrison back on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, they still might not be on the field for every down, according to defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau in a report by Dave Bryan of the Steelers Depot on Thursday.
Here's LeBeau, from Bryan's article, speaking about his defensive stalwarts:
"I'm looking forward to having our defense back together. They might not be able to play the whole game but we'll get a lot of quality snaps from them. They both looked real well in the practices the last few days, and I'm anxious to see them play."
With a strained calf, Polamalu has been sidelined for the Steelers' last two games, while Harrison hasn't seen the field since last season's postseason loss to the Denver Broncos in an AFC Wild Card game.
Kickoff in Pittsburgh is set for 1 p.m. ET on Sunday afternoon.
