Steelers Vs. Patriots: James Harrison Questionable With Back Spasms

Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison was a late addition to the team's injury report for the week. He's now listed as questionable with back spasms. He has missed only one game since becoming a starter in 2007.

Obviously, Harrison's absence would be terrible news for Pittsburgh. Their opposition, the New England Patriots will certainly lean heavily on the pass, so getting pressure on quarterback Tom Brady is imperative for a Steelers victory. Since the two teams will clash on Sunday Night Football, hopefully those extra few hours will be enough preparation for Harrision. If he can't suit up, expect rookie second-rounder Jason Worilds to get his first career start.
