Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison and safety Troy Polamalu have been listed as probable for Sunday's contest against the Philadelphia Eagles. Both players have missed the majority of the season due to injury.
Harrison has been sidelined since undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery in mid-August to repair his left knee. He missed the entirety of the preseason and has been cautious about re-aggravating the area. Polamalu has been out since sustaining a calf injury against the Denver Broncos in the season opener. Both players were able to return to practice on Wednesday and participated fully in drills.
Head coach Mike Tomlin said that he expects both players to be available against Philadelphia. However, defensive coordinator Dick Lebeau commented that they may not play the full game.
In addition, running back Rashard Mendenhall and offensive lineman Marcus Gilbert were listed as probable for Week 5. Mendenhall has been out since suffering a torn ACL at the end of last season. Gilbert has been out of commission since suffering a left knee injury against the Broncos.
