James Harrison completed practice for the second consecutive day on Thursday, and it looks as if the Steelers linebacker will be able to play on Sunday.

The Steelers received some good news on Thursday, as linebacker James Harrison completed practice for the second consecutive day. It's the first time this season that Harrison has completed back-to-back practices. He had minor surgery on his knee in the middle of August and has been limited ever since. It looks like Harrison will be set to make his season debut on Sunday against the Eagles.

Also practicing on Thursday were Rashard Mendenhall, Troy Polamalu and Marcus Gilbert. Mendenhall has not played in 2012 after ACL surgery, while Polamalu missed the last two games with a strained calf. Gilbert had been struggling with a groin injury. All three were full participants both Wednesday and Thursday and look like they'll be able to play on Sunday.

The Eagles had three players to note on their injury report. Linebacker Akeem Jordan missed practice for the second day in a row, while tackle Derek Landri was back in a limited capacity on Thursday. Guard Danny Watkins did not practice on Wednesday but had no limitations on Thursday afternoon.

The Eagles and Steelers will meet at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday afternoon from Pittsburgh, and the game will be shown on FOX.
