James Harrison Injury Update: Steelers LB Practices For First Time In A Month

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison practice today for the first time in about a month since fracturing his orbital bone. The Steelers have a matchup with their division rival, the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday night, so it's no surprise Harrison wants to try to get on the football field. Harrison realizes the severity of his injury, however, so he's not going to rush it.

"I'm not playing with my vision. If they say I can go, I'll be out there (playing). If not, then I'll wait another week," Harrison told the media after practice. Harrison has been cleared to practice, but he will still need to be monitored during the week before he will be cleared to play for the game on Sunday night. Harrison was able to practice and said he had no problems with the protective shield that was placed on his helmet. His status is still up in the air for the game against the Ravens, but it looks like if he can play, he will play.
