Jets Vs. Steelers: James Harrison Says He'll Be Ready

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison believes he will play in Sunday's game against the New York Jets (4:25 p.m. on CBS). At least, that's what the All-Pro linebacker told Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Thursday.

The prediction from Harrison comes a few days after he worked out the knee and head coach Mike Tomlin said there was a chance the four-time Pro Bolwer could play. The 6'0, 242-pound linebacker did not practice on Tuesday or Wednesday, as he's still recovering from minor knee surgery that he received before the beginning of the regular season. Harrison did not play in the Steelers' season-opening contest at the Denver Broncos, who defeated Pittsburgh 31-19.

Harrison's comments to Bouchette are a bit of a surprise, as seven days ago the 34-year-old wrote two handwritten notes saying he wasn't going to talk to the media until Fridays.
